Wheel arch is an arch-shaped cavity in the body of a vehicle, which houses a wheel. It has two important functions. It serves for safety of pedestrians and other cars because the wheel is situated in the body of a vehicle. In Formula 1 cars there is no wheel arch. The danger is that when there is a collision of cars, the wheels fly into the air. The second function is to protect the car from mud when driving. For this purpose protective fender guards were created that are assembled in the wheel arch.
Theoretically wheel arch is liable to corrosion. So a material that is not liable to corrosion is used. Moreover, this material is hard to road metal impact. But still, it may be damaged in the result of an accident. It often happens so that protective fender guards break down. But it is easy to replace them. To do this you need to remove the wheel. If there is a serious damage in the wheel arch, it will be more expensive to repair it. It is possible you will need a wheel alignment. That is why a car owner won’t manage to do this.
In some cars wheel arch size is not big. This may become a problem if there must be tire chains on the wheels. In some cases it is impossible to install the chain. Pay attention to this fact when buying car if you will drive the place where it is necessary to use the tire chain. Also it is possible to set a smaller tire with tire chains.
