GM will produce carbon-wheels!
GM will produce carbon-wheels!: Do you know which company is planning on rolling out carbon-fiber wheels as optional equipment for its performance cars?General Motors revealed its plan, the timing is still unclear, though the idea might be a very good one.
This GM plan could possibly hit on Carbon Revolution, the Australian company that is already providing carbon-fiber wheels for Ford GT and Mustang Shelby GT350R. William Rodgers, admitted that cars like Cadillac V-Series are some great candidates to try this new plan on. Costumers will probably want to see it on ChevyCamaro and Corvette too, so who knows what GM will be doing next in order to surprise us.
Though carbon-wheels are already available in the aftermarket you can rarely buy them from an automaker. They might be expensive, but still lighter than other materials. GM thinks it may reduce the vehicles weight by 35 pounds.
