    "Glass" Wheels

    Was wondering if anyone had ever seen this before, I was surfing the web to find a set for my car and stumbled upon these. I think they're pretty cool looking, but probably highly impractical for a useful application.

    They're made out of some 2" thick polycarbonate and cost $5,000 for ONE

    I actually like them. But that could be me drooling at the big ass brakes behind them too. Not sure about air flow tho.....

    I like them but yeah it would suck to try and keep the backs of them clean.

    I do think they're pretty neat, but BIG breaks are a must with them. Cleaning, ventilation, and weight would be my concerns with them. I can also see that the guy has stretched tires on them... Idiot lol.
