I would like to simulate an impact test that's performed on aluminum wheels for an automobile as part of the evaluation for performance.

The wheel is tilted 13deg from a horizontal plane and mass of, let's say 1250 lb is dropped from a height of 9 inch. Please image attached.

You can use MES contact to simulate this impact problem.

Take a look at the following web page link to see typical results you can get using Autodesk Simulation Mechanical when performing such analysis with "MES"

It would be just AMAZING if you can upload a tutorial on how to do that... (I mean the simulation showed in the link you provided  http://www.applycon.com/Examples/06_Wheel_Deformation6.htm    )
