Not rims, per se, but, tires:

Yokohama Rubber Advancing Tire Aerodynamics Technology - With fins. On the tires.

Quote:

Tokyo –The Yokohama Rubber Co., Ltd., announced today that it has made new advances in tire aerodynamics technology that control the air flow around tires in motion. The new development reduces vehicle aerodynamic drag and lift. Application of the new technology could lead to the development of new tires that will raise fuel efficiency and increase vehicle safety.

The dimples make sense, they work well on a golf ball. But I'd like to know how big these fins are? Any tire that stays the same shape at the top and bottom of it's revolution must come with a kidney belt.

Oh, and it the real world, the tires on the curb side of the car won't have fins for long. :haha:

Gravdigr 10-16-2015 01:12 PM

Meh, if they made white letters last as long as they did, fins should be a lead pipe cinch.

A couple guys in France have been working for eight years to develop this, but don't have the money to go into production, or develop a two seater.
