Looks whacky indeed, This can sell very well for bling bling cars in the USA.
I personally don't like em that much, but they are really cool way of showing off some hott Rotors once in a way.

As we think it's too costly, its not worth, it's impractical etc etc,
well the product was not made targetting the practical and cost concious, it was made to sell to radical and rich ....... rephrase VERY RICH, and bored people who have probably 4 sets of rims for each ride maybe.
There are a lot of people who can afford and will buy these in the USA / UK / JAPAN etc, and for all you know you might see few in India very soon to our astonishment.

So to be fitted on a Chrysler 300 SRT for the next 50 Cent Video ??

I know it does look like a gaping hole.

But, they look cool on big and flashy muscle cars and like blue raven rightly pointed out, it will be accepted by hip-hop fraternity with wide open arms even if pricing/wheel is so ridiculous.

I doubt whether it will be available "ever" in India. Cost in the US for each wheel is $5K

5000$ each.
Thats like 20k atleast ( 4 wheels) that is like 10 lakh INR.

Whatever said and whatever price, they look uber cool but then you need to have discs all around and big ones and good brake calipers to show them off.

On normal drums / small discs / normal brake calipers, they wont look as good as they appear here.
