Some of the best quality mag wheels in Brisbane are available for people who want to upgrade the look of their vehicles. Mag wheels differ from the normal steel wheels because their base alloys are aluminum/magnesium/chrome metals. Since mag wheels are lighter, they can improve performance and increase mileage.
Reinvention of the wheel is always met with skepticism because people know that whatever improvements are made on the wheel are usually unoriginal duplications of an existing option. However, there are useful wheel innovations that can prove that wheels can still be improved.
Defense Advanced Research Project Agency (DARPA) Ground X Vehicle Technologies project is planning a wheel that could shape-shift to be able to adapt to the terrain that it is navigating. DARPA has worked with the team from Carnegie Mellon University National Robotics Engineering Center on a project called Reconfigurable Wheel-Track, a shape-shifting wheel that can seamlessly change from a round shape to a triangular one and back again to its original shape while a vehicle is moving.
Pirelli is a company that has gained a reputation for its aerodynamic tires that are being used by Formula 1 teams. Recently, Pirelli has introduced a replica of the popular wind tunnel model which is in actuality a Bluetooth Speaker. Pirelli P Zero Sound can be used on phones, tablets, laptops and other devices to blast sound on a 100-watt amplifier. The fashionable wheels are equipped with Bluetooth 4.0 and AptX connectivity to be able to deliver quality audio reproductions off the racetracks.
Scientists at Harvard John A. Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences have developed a new type of rubber that is as tough as the material used in car tyres but with the capability to self-heal. If this new type of rubber is used to make tyres, they will not need frequent replacements.
Futuristic wheels and tyres are not yet available in the market because they are still under the planning and development stages. However, there are wheels in Brisbane for all types of vehicles and challenging drives. There are wheels to suit all tastes and budgets from high quality mag wheels to brand new and used alloy wheels.
