I'm holding out the possibility that this could be a good modification for summer driving.




Now that I see them again, this would be a tough mod, I think...
Renault used such a wheelcover for it's Vesta-II Cd0.19,146-mpg concept car.They'd be worth waiting for as they're just a great real world compromise between ideals and utility.Get 'em if you can!
