Cool Rims

Okay, people are on about fancy rims and stuff and how they want marchassinni and the like.... but why. Took the back tire off today coz i got a puncture. and when i cleaned the rim to my surprise on the center hub of the rim was... wait for it..... ENKEI... that's right zx10r's come stockers with Enkei rims how cool is that. So the next time some one says what rims you got just say you got ENKEI

The reason for the aftermarket wheels is for the reduction of unsprung weight for handling and acceleration.

It's kinda like running a mile race in your work boots verses high tech running shoes.

I think it is a little more like running a race in a pair of Nike running shoes verses a pair of slightly heavier off brand running shoes. There is really not that much difference but it does look cool when you are at the local hang out. All the other kids will be jealous of your shinny new Nike's!

The benifits of aftermarket Mag or CF wheels are twofold, you have a reduction in rotating mass which frees up HP albeit minor AND the transition from right to left and vice versa is reduced which equates to an easier / quicker handling mochine.
