I've never heard of this company before but apparently they are making CF wheels and other stuff including bare CF finishes for cars.

Pretty sure that is just a c/f transfer applied to normal wheels  :scratchchin:

I can't imagine CF would be the best material for a wheel, let alone on a street car. 

However the failure on slow motion camera hitting a pothole, would be epic to watch.

Been used on motorbikes for about a decade now; but interestingly enough not on race bikes.
Its use in 1500kg + cars is a whole different ball game though.

I've used CF wheels for years on my bikes both road and track no problem, I've repaired a few also but only rim damage not structural.

Plenty CF wheels on road cars now.

Apparently these guys are making CF wheels for Josh Cartu?  Never heard of him but apparently well known in racing circles.
