I've finally started seeing these on Class 8 trucks here in the USA. That crowd has always been ahead of the curve with aero since the oil price spike after Hurricane Katrina.

in the truck world, even a small improvement per 1000 miles is noticeable money.

Especially, if you own the truck you drive
If you don't make any mistakes in your life,
life itself will be a f*ckup.

it's not your fault, Renault

Thanks in advance!!
Goro Tamai reported that on solar race cars:
*a tri-spoke wheel had Cd 0.038
*a flat disc wheel had Cd 0.364
*a convex full disc was Cd 0.361
