Saw those before on the 350Z, they weren't 20s though. I think they're pretty cool. You have to take them off to clean them though.

I saw that wheel on a S550. Pretty cool, but cleaning off the brake dust would be a PITA.

I don't see how these would sell. People love the 'Bling RactoR' that huge chrome and shiny wheels give their cars. There is nothing bling about nothing being there.

Obviously not a black man who created that wheel.



PS I love southern black people.

So it's for big brake system manufacturers? I suppose people who spend thousands on brakes need to show them off with a wheel on the completely opposite end of the spectrum from what big brake kits are produced for.

Now I get it.

What about keeping the brakes from overheating?

Won't that just cause a huge heat build-up behind there?

Yes it will, and it would get dirty as hell after driving around even for a couple minutes.

Clear hoods have been out for a while. Those are equally as dumb.

Yeah, but with all the brake dust, it would be harder to clean it.
