Since it's a 'race car', windage effects and compromised aerodynamics of the wire wheel may be offset by 'quick-change' capability of 'knock-off' spindle nuts, if encountering a flat tire during competition. Some races are won in the 'pits.' Or in this case, on the roadside, by an accompanying team repair crew.
