What works : Aluminium wheel. Cheap due to a government subsidy in form of cheap fixed aluminium and electricity price.

What doesn't work : Steel. Steel is an unsubsidized free-market commodity. While Chinese steels are cheap, their quality is not good enough for use in GM vehicles and China->US shipping wipes out cost difference.

So there you have it. Chinese parts are competitive only if they are government subsidized. Free-market items aren't.
