In the near future, alloy rims could be replaced by plastic rims. These rims are realized by a combination between plastic and glass (glass-reinforced plastic GRP) and have as an advantage their light weight. It is normal that a plastic rim to weight less than an alloy one. The same will be with the price; it will be less than the price for an alloy rim. Although the project isnâ€™t new, this kind of rims werenâ€™t tested before. But this thing changed once with the creation of a new testing lab at the European Examination Center Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft.
This is the way to test the durability and resistance of plastic rims. Until now, few prototypes were successfully tested, resisting at over 250,000 km of simulations.
