Alloy Rim

In Mexico for some strange reason llantas is used for tires, and "rin" (straight from English I suppose) is used for the rim. However, the proper translation of rim is llanta.

Alloy wheels

Normally, magnesium/aluminum for lightness. In car dealer's 'slang' they only mention 'wheels' in extras list, and the client knows the meaning (alloy).
