Yeah your right your street car produces more power and potentially hooks up better than a street car did 30 yrs ago. But the wheels we are discussing were designed for racing 30yrs ago so which is still more than your street car and your street car on the track.
Lets just say your right a wheel is totally different now than 30 yrs ago.
Even though a pound is still a pound and horsepower is still horsepower and torque is still torque its all measured and rated the same now as then.
You ever heard the saying dont try to reinvent the wheel.
The wheels on our street cars are the wheels used on race cars in the 70's and 80's.
