The Downside of Magnesium Rims

We all have a fascination with lightweight wheels for our car, heck it’s like jewelry for your “other” woman.  Well, my buddy Brad knows a thing or two about materials and motorsport and he’s mentioned to me that some wheels are great for the track, but are simply too fragile for serious street use.  Indeed some wheels are so light, that they are basically single season throw away items.  The snap above comes from LamboPower, and illustrates the point pretty graphically.  Buyer beware, but be informed.
