Very sleek; but I wonder, I have a seen a number of fanciful designs featuring hubless wheels. Are those a real thing? Can they really be made to work and offer some practical advantage? Or is it more a gimmick to catch the eye?
Well, who would have thought that a full size car like my wife's 2018 Malibu would get 32 mpg around town and run at 90 mph(getting 35 mpg)for 8 hours straight easily. I remember when the tiny cheap japanese cars were great because they got 25 mpg when american cars got 15. So, while i think there is some engineering that needs to improve, i think hubless wheels may be on many cars in the near future. I have seen the hubless chopper motorcycle in person and it does work and drive pretty well without any wobbles or odd movements. I do think the chopper needed the very long forks on it to get the proper strenth on oversize fork legs to not bend or wobble. We will see if wear and tear will make the hubless design just that, a design that went nowhere.
