Can liquidmetal be use to produce a car/ F1 wheel

Can liquidmetal be use to produce a car/ F1 wheel

Can liquidmetal be use to produce a car/ F1 wheel

(OP)
I was wondering since the properties of a liquid metal is light and strong, I was wondering whether it can be use to produce a wheel, to increase the car's performance and fuel consumption without sacrificing its safety?

RE: Can liquidmetal be use to produce a car/ F1 wheel

Liquidmetal does have high strength, but its density is not low (~ 6.1 · 103 kg m-3).  Also, its elastic modulus is low (~ 90 GPa).  Therefore, it is not competitive for designs requiring high stiffness, which includes wheels.
