I believe carbon has 17x the tensile strength of steel.

Those are sweet.

I could just get the spokes on some other wheels wrapped in carbon fiber and be a poser.

There better be a lifetime warranty on these expensive wheels.
They should put a GPS system in them wheels, so that you can track someone that stole them ;) Obviously its a pita to steal our cars ;)

I look at these badass wheels and see a Rota imitation in the near future. Definetly a track wheel too :(, thieves wouldn't let them last on the street.
