Default Clear (Polycarbonate) Wheels

" There is a lot of cool and crazy stuff at SEMA, but these clear D'Vinci Forgiato Radurra wheels definitely caught my eye. They're two inch thick polycarbonate, and are available in 20, 22 and 24 inch sizes for around $2k each. "

Polycarbonate scratches and clouds up over time, but cool concept anyway.

So... you would have to take them off everytime you wanted to clean them. Cool looking but a "0" on practicality... even if you use them for just show, you can't even roll the car into position without needing to clean them.

It's kinda neat how they look like little display cased for your brakes, coulovers, ect.. but how do you keep the backside somewhat clean?

I can't wait till someone gets them up here. Then we can see how they hold up.

i wonder if they'd get discolored in the sun...not that anyone would park his/her car w/ those wheels on them outside for long enough periods of time...or at least one would think...

Seal those things up, add some H20 and a couple of nice fish and then you got something!

Yeah, but then you have to start replacing fish every day or so... what about a hamster in each wheel... NOW THAT WOULD BE SOMETHING!
