You realize those cost more than your car and should go in the same category as the M5 engine swap.

You can get Weld rims for much cheaper. They are 12lbs, but on the downside not suitable for road racing.

I don't care what they are made of or how much money I had, I would NEVER spend 6 grand on a set of wheels.

Texas A&M did that last year for the Formula SAE challenge. They didn't get to do testing on them, but talking to them after the competition, they were scared of taking a rock on the rim for the fact that carbon fiber SHATTERS. k thx bye

I know I just posted it b/c I was just thinking that it would be cool to get them if I had a deep bank account due to just having won the lottery. If I ever win the lottery(first I need to start playing) I would still drive a t-bird.
