    IndyCar should go after one of the major (rim) wheel designers; DUB, American Racing...I don't know them all.

    How cool would it be if there were 10-20 different wheel designs on the track at the same time...some black, some gold, some chrome...

        Waltrip's team ran gold rims in the *other* 500...

              At least a couple years ago they did have a deal with a rim manufacture who was making "IndyCar" rims for street cars. It wasn't a major brand but I thought a couple of the designs were cool.

                ...I didn't know that either, however I'm not sure I would've used the word 'miss'.

                  That's what I'm thinking, only in reverse. Instead of street cars with IndyCar rims, IndyCars with street cars rims. Maybe we could even get Marco some Spinners.

                      Emerson Fittipaldi had his own line of wheels for a while. Don't know if the Fittipaldi brand is still around though.

                        OZ Racing and BBS make plenty of very good street wheels, including sets derived from their race wheels.

                          I wish Penske would run the white wheels they use in the paddock. Those things are SHARP looking. i don't understand why they dont.
