    David,
    Very cool look. Good balance of black and red.

    Rotating mass is a huge deal with acceleration and braking. Adding 16 pounds in the passenger seat has no effect. Removing 4 pounds from each wheel/tire is very noticeable on "low horsepower" cars like 308/328.

    Thanks, Mule. Your modular wheels are the best. Unfortunately, I needed rubber for the car now!

    Thank you. I will sell them someday, but not a lot of buyers for the convex wheels. If I had your wheels, mine would look like Tom's, which is cool, too.

    It is also nice to see a thread come to a conclusion from the beginning issue or question. Too many just die off with no resolution.

    True that on the conclusion & good that David has got where he wanted to go. Its his car & he can do what he likes with it.

    However, the conclusion it leads me to is that I still haven't seen a replacement wheel on an ABS 328 that I'd want on my car!

    I also wouldn't want the additional weight of those wheels, or the additional loads through the suspension joints or steering gear.

    (But if somebody would make a 17" version of the OEM wheel that was light & wasn't too much wider - well, you'd have to take a long, hard look at that ;) )
