While we are on the subject of wheels, is there a reason for 
replacing the original wheels?
My car has wire wheels.  I was wondering if they are considered more 
prone to failure than a mag type wheel.
I remember a fellow I knew in high school flipping his new TR6 on a 
hairpin curve and telling me one of his wire wheels broke when he 
took the curve too fast, causing the car to flip.
I just don't understand how he could of done that.
