Re: alloy wheels.. (revanth6t4)

Consider the force applied during hard cornering and how it might fracture the spokes of an allow wheel.<p>The pix below shows my V70R at speed on a track under severe cornering. Note the tire distortion, the wheel is getting a good work out too.<p><IMG SRC="http://www.r-series.org/tireload.jpg" BORDER="0">
