Do wheel types vary in strength?

Yes, some wheels are stronger than others.  This does not mean that your less expensive wheel is not as safe as a more expensive wheel.  Wheels are designed to meet specific design and cost criteria.  They can be made of either aluminum alloy or steel.  Steel is the cheapest material to make wheels from.  It is generally very durable, but susceptible to rust and can typically be heavy.  Aluminum wheels can be manufactured in a few different ways and can increase the overall strength of the finished product depending on the methods used.
