two alloy discs on top of each other. So basically when the car is in motion they both move but when the car stops the alloys on top still keep moving
And he spend 7 lks for that..... Woah man.. Ya he's rich and we are talking about an S-Class here.
But if the spinners are those huge chromed stuff on the SUV's in those R&B videos, well I guess it'l looks good on real huge machines..

The S-class would have looked better the way iceman put it... multispoke rims with really low profile.. Saw an accord here ysdy with similar and hell she looked hot...

That pic really helps one understand how it works..
So when does it stop rotating?? Long after the car had stopped??

spinners do NOT cost 7 lakh. he must have mentioned that he has spent 7 lakhs in total mods to the S class.
a good set of 18" or 19" spinners are rs.75000/-

Totally depends on the laws of momentum and friction.
