In order to determine the actual quality of light metal wheels offered by the accessory trade, eleven wheels were subjected to a comprehensive test program. The comparison was carried out on 7 J x 15 H 2 wheels whose special joint feture consists in the fact that they are approved for both the BMW 3 series and the VW Golf. The eleven test participants represent the multitude of design variants: five of them are taken from the popular range of cross spokes wheels, a further five are characterized by spokes styling and one wheel has a disc look.
