Alloy wheels in the motor cycle play major role to carry the load over the spoke wheels. The shape and orientation of the spokes are responsible for withstand the loads which are acting on the alloy wheel rim and hub bearing surface. These alloy wheel spokes are subjected to different types of loads i.e., radial loads, impact load, bending load, torsion load and maximum deflection load. So it is necessary to study the response of the wheel under these types of loads before the product going into the market. In the present article 4 models of motor cycle alloy wheel are modeled based on the dimensions in the reference article. The material chosen for the analysis of the alloy wheel is aluminum alloy which is homogenous in nature having isotropic properties. The magnitude of the five different loading conditions and boundary conditions are taken from the Automotive Industry Standards (AIS). The four models of alloy wheels are analyzed under radial, impact, bending, torsion and maximum deflection loads cases by using by using ANSYS workbench. The results show that all four models are having enough fatigue life, strength and stiffness against the different loading conditions.
