Clear Polycarbonate Wheels

This is one of those things that look cool, but really isn’t. The D’Vinci Forgiato Radurra wheels are made from 2-inch thick polycarbonate and come in 20, 22 and 24-inch sizes. They’ll be available for about $2,000.

Now, as far as I’m concerned, the thing that makes these wheels not nearly as cool as they seem is the obvious dirt factor. To perform as desired, you’d basically have to have a wheel-Sherpa that got out and cleaned your wheels whenever the car stopped. Plus, even if you somehow magically manage to keep that polycarbonate clean, well then it’s just providing a view of your grimey ass brakes. Yea, no thanks.
