They could be real. The Harleys have had them type of wheels for a year or two now. I know a car is heavier but I can't see why it wouldn't be possible.

Cool!..After every drive you could get out and see how much your brake pads had worn down...

Can't see why it can't be done on a car,it's been done on bikes for a few years now,
the most famous being Billy Lanes' chopper of biker build off fame.Proper bike too - no photoshop stuff etc.
and there's less space on a bike to hide all the engineering trickery?

certainly was, bit of a pain in the butt for me to get in and out of, standing at 6ft3" and 18stone, not really designed for a man of my stature, however, when in and the seat is adjusted you can have some fun, the back end is very very twitchy though...

Would rather them on a car. If one goes bang you've got 3 more and could hopefully keep control, on a bike, no chance.

I'd still rather loose a wheel on a car at 50 than on a bike at 50. But none the less, I aint got those rims and I use a torque wrench :}
