[Biturbos4] New Shoes!

The car really looks great, but David raises an interesting point ...

I'd be interested in hearing some opinions about wheel designs that stick
the spokes out past the rims and sidewalls.  Personally, I think it may be a
dealbuster for a car that gets driven daily and sees an occasional curb.
I'm not sure fitting an oversized tire, even when possible, is the solution.
Any thoughts?
