In fact multiple parts - namely rim tape, wheelbrace and wheel disc - are welded together and then lacquered. So steel rims brave grit and road salt. Because the weldseam are manufactured in sections, the rim gets sturdy and more durable. This long life fatigue strength is a big advantage to the substantially softer alloy rims. Trilex rims are often used for commercial vehicles. As the name implies they consist of three equal parts. They make a tyre change possible without dismantling the whole rim - the spoke wheel centre remains at the axle.
