Alloy is a metallurgical term that does not just apply to bits. It means a combination of material of which at least one is a metal. For instance, bronze is a combination of tin and copper. Steel is a combination of iron and carbon. There are probably many alloys of steel, nickel, and copper that would be useful for bits.

For the best answers, search on this site https://shorturl.im/9mb7h You have a claim against them, and they should fit them free of charge. I once bought a car with Alloys on from a garage, it was one of the selling points for the car. After a couple of weeks I took it back because the wheels were rubbing on the wheel arches when there wer 4 people in the car. The mechanic at the garage who sold me the car said it should never have had alloys on, it wasn't suitable for them. They changed the rims to steel ones, and then wanted to charge me. I refused to pay and said I had already spoken to Trading Standards, which I had, and they would be perfectly happy to take up my case against the garage. The garage than said it was free. And then I asked them to change to spare, as it was an alloy as well, so i got all 5 changed.
