I prefer the look of the wheel kit but would live with the Aeros if efficiency is improved by 10% or more.
Any improvement in efficiency - even 3% - is worthwhile.
I also like the look of the aero caps, and they make the wheels so much easier to clean than the standard alloys.
Why did you feel it necessary to mention their colour ? Why not just “a group of 14-16 year old boys” ?
Well if reinforcing the notion of young, cool, black teenagers is a bad thing ... good grief ... there's plenty of people who would only refer to black youngsters in negative terms. Anyway, how do you know Yev000 isn't a black guy himself? Weren't you jumping to a stereotyping conclusion?
I've been running with aeros since pickup on the 30th of Sept and I took off the passenger side pair today to touch up some rim scuff damage. Boy was I shocked to see rust in the centre of the wheels
This is the rear wheel...

The front was even worse...

Now I can't blame this on the aeros because, had I removed them, I would have added a cap anyway which would have trapped water in just the same way, but I'm now wondering whether I should just run without them all the time.
Is this normal? What is the longevity of wheels that do that in less than three months.
Any advice on what I should do
