This research aims to reduce the loads on the engine which lead to reduce fuel consumption by optimization designing the rim wheel of the vehicle using several types of metals, and then choosing the metal that achieves the least mass as well as the least stress. The method of work Choose a model for the rim wheel with standard dimensions, as it will be drawing using the solid work program. Using the Ansys program to analyze the stresses applied on the wheel rim using the number of Meshing elements 149664 when torque of 1050 Nm and a circumference pressure of 0.25 MPa.
