Rock A168 Aluminum Wheel Dynamic - Rural Hall, NC, USA Good news and bad news "The problem was the center caps. That extra 3 cents worth of plastic to increase the depth of the Caps would have eliminated the necessity of: $200 in wheel spacers (at least motorsports helped with that, monitarily) Then, had to drop another $200 on fender flares to avoid trail shrapnel. All in, I had less in a set of wheels for a Mercedes E-Class. Good or bad, you be the judge"
Marchesini Motorcycle Wheels:
One of the easiest ways to make your bike handle dramatically better is with a lighter set of motorcycle wheels, and there's no better wheel than Marchesini. With countless racers and teams riding their wheels to victory, Marchesini has a pedigree that can't be ignored. If you can't tell by the name, they're an Italian company devoted to making the lightest, strongest motorcycle wheels possible. In reducing your wheel weight, you're not only reducing the amount of unsprung weight on your bike, but the general rule is that for every pound you save on a wheel weight, that equates to about 2.5lb of sprung weight. Not sure what that means? Simply put, sprung weight is everything from the springs up, unsprung weight is everything from the springs down. Wheels, shocks, springs, axles and motorcycle tires contribute to the unsprung weight. The bike, engine, fluids, you, your passenger, and anything else that's comfortably supported by the suspension all contribute to the sprung weight.

They're commonly seen on Ducatis, not to mention many other high-end sport bikes and a majority of world-class race bikes. Sure, they're an investment, but it's an investment with instant rewards.
