Cool camera angle but I don't understand the wheel reference. Are you talking about the wheel rotation matching the camera's frame speed? Nothing new there...

Thanks Jbotta, that was very cool!! I wonder at what speed the tire revelations matched the frames per second of the camera. After seeing your video, I realized that I did not have to go out and buy spinner rims for my car after all.

Yes the one negative to these polished rims is the HUGE amount of brake dust that is generated every time you drive...

I wonder if there are brake pads that perform as well as the originals but don't make the crappy dust

I have SS 20" polished wheels and can't imagine mine making special effects like that. Does it? Cool vid.
