Wheel rims are one of the important parts of automotive, where it is heavily undergoes static and fatigue failures as the wheel travels in different road conditions. As it develops, the heavy stress produced, critical stress and number of cycles to failure were found. The design and shape of the wheel rim were to be accommodated for the requirement of vehicle. The wheel rims are mostly employed alloy materials with suitable parameters. A 3D model of wheel rim was made with Creo Parametric Software and then it was converted into IGES format and imported into ANSYS. Static analysis was performed using ANSYS 19.2 software and results were obtained by performing the analysis, it gives the differences in the behaviour of the model. In this static analysis, we found out Equivalent Von-mises stress, Equivalent Elastic strain and Total Deformation by applying fixed supports in lug holes and pressure of 0.27579 Mpa (40 psi) is applied on the outer surface of the rim for 3 different materials such as Steel, Aluminum alloy and Magnesium alloy.
