If based on the same type of forged aluminum material on the t50, you would need to add material and weight on the wheel for the support it needs. If a full 1900kg of downforce is on the rear axle, you would need essentially wheel that can handle 2100lb with 2 supporting the combined 1900kg.... That is essentially SUV/CUV weight support capability.... hopefully APP, the company manufacturing and designing the original t50 wheels can use forged magnesium to lighten up. But keeping the existing weight of the road wheel with higher downforce support would be challenging... And that needs to apply the same for tires as well... as GM doesn't really design them but has the supplier meet his criteria, easiest way is to contract APP tech or aftermarket company to build one for you..as long as they account for the requirements and not just the gvwr of the vehicle.... as many wheel companies out there do.... Thats why some aftermarket wheels are lighter because they dont really account for downforce exertion on top of the weight of the vehicle at speed...Thanks for that article, very informative. I friggin love Gordon's info. 1500 kg downforce, impressive for a small surface area car like this without a tiny 1 person cabin. I imagine the drag reduction mode from the fan will come in handy on straights.
I wonder if someone could strongarm Gordon to make a version with wheels/tires capable of taking the full 1900 kg downforce.
