The goal of the design of the wheel is to actively move air through the rotor and out of the wheel. The wheels have to be eight lugs with big windows so the Wilwood Brakes can be seen. Visually, Jonathan wanted the design to be more nostalgic.

Jonathan at Sparc Industries is drawing up the wheels.
