Mag Wheels

Just watching the Cart Racing in the States (Tue Morn C10 1:45am) couldnt help but notice how they might look on the XR8. One Cart has a nice set of gold centers with wide rubber, similar to Simmons. Wonder what they cost..

The Gold rims are probably those used by Team Kool Green. Most if not all CART teams use BBS forged magnesium wheels (the reason they flash when the guys hit the concrete walls). You don't wanna know cost - believe me!
Besides, I think thay are only 14 inch diameter.

yeah me likes those magnesium wheels, makes the indy cars look a whole lot better than the normal black ones they use. I've noticed that it varies from the polished silver to the black rims in indy.
