Says Aprilla on the side cover. Good luck finding 16.5" tires.
When freind bought bikes they would not sell him engines! so he's using Aprillia motors as for tyres cutting my own slicks:

Please educate yourself before spouting off at the mouth like that with dumb comments:bitchslap

WHen you buy a car wheel what are you getting, just a hoop that you bolt on.
MC wheels contain bearings, sprocket carriers, spacers, etc, there is much more to the design and manufacturing of MC wheels. Some are much more excotic materials. Try sourcing forged magnesium or carbon wheels for your car and see what you come up with. It will not be 800$:crackup:

You can buy a heated tire groover on ebay, I actually just got one to play around with, I used a few old tires to mess with and it cuts the grooves suprisingly easy. I just have to work a little on my pattern design before I try and tackle grooving some tires I would intend to use.

You use a tyre regrooving tool:
