Hi just saw your message you posted.

I dont have lot of info on them but i can tell what they are generaly (MAW) Magnesium alloy wheels, or mag wheels, are sometimes used on racing cars, in place of heavier steel or aluminium wheels, for better performance. The wheels are produced by one-step hot forging from magnesium alloys ZK60 and MA-14 (Russian variation of ZK60). Cast magnesium disks are used in motocycle wheels.

The weight of typical magnesium automotive wheel is about 812 kg (depending on model).

There are some rumors that say that Magnesium wheels are inflammable but this is not the case. Other rumors say that Magnesium wheels have low corrosion resistance; this is not the case either as long as construction and production rules are followed.

They have the disadvantages of being rather expensive and difficult to recycle, so are not practical for most street vehicles. Aluminium wheels are often mistakenly called "mag wheels".

SUV Wheels

At Choice Wheels, we want to ensure that we have the most variety of wheels that is possible online. We have wheels for sedans, trucks, and you guessed it - SUVs. SUV stands for sport utility vehicle.

The SUV is becoming a popular mode of transport. The concept of an SUV is not quite a truck, but not quite a car. You've got more room to haul things around, a bigger trunk, and the opening to the trunk is usually bigger too.

This is an important distinction to make because often times when you want to fit a larger item into your vehicle, you may have enough space in the back seat or the trunk, but you also need enough clearance from the trunk door in order to make it happen.

Sometimes, you can even see people in the parking lot, taking apart their trunk on their sedan (if they're handy enough) simply because they know the item will fit, but there isn't enough clearance frmo the trunk door. SUVs are great for carrying more and having the space to do it.

Also, in many cases an SUV can carry more passengers as well. There may be an optional additional seat, which can be removed in case of more space being required for people.
