Any updates on the wind effect yet??

And another question, will these wheels fit under the fenders of the previous years model?

The new M3W is reportedly "entering the jet age". I think we need some moon disc hubcaps!

Another question, is it possible to purchase a set of those wheels?

I've seen a car at Krazy Horse with a very similar if not the same so maybe? Best to drop an email to MMC and ask nicely (beg sometimes helps) I also saw recently a 3W with disc wheel with a gap near the top of the wheel. Sure it was on Instagram but once seen I can never find anything again on there.

I saw that one and got a reply from the maker/seller and they do not have the rather flat profile of the P101 wheels. That flat profile is what I liked about the looks, besides very easy to clean :-)


I will politely ask MMC to see what they say. Thanks Peter.

I must admit I am really looking forward to cleaning them, the hubs do need a squirt of AFC50 after each wash, as advised by the aftercare handbook (leaflet) kindly supplied by Chris G.

I've not had any problem with wind and the wheels pushing around. I don't think with the weight upfront and two wheels it has any of the problems that a solid wheel on a motorcycle causes.

I've also not had a chance to remove the wheel and check the weight.

I will say they are super easy to clean. It's a solid painted surface, I wash it just like I would a painted panel. Hit it with a little instant detailer when I pull up to a meet.

Thank you. I still have heard nothing from MMC about their availability.
