I think an odd number of spokes is more appealing to the human eye.

I see 3-spoked alloys every so often, mostly on Mercedes. I believe they are not good for larger diameter wheels because the distance between spokes is big enough to allow denting/bending. I hate 4-spoke wheels, though.

Um, 9 isn't a prime number.

What matters is where you're going, not how fast.
