looks like a solid piece of plastic to me too

id like to see those after a few days worth of brake dust have coated behind the plastic with a nice black film. Good luck cleaning the reverse side

seems like another irish invention

It is glass/plastic, you can see the reflection off the rear wheel in the second pic.
Looks cool but I wonder how it will hold up to everyday driving. All the stress on that plastic/glass will eventually make it a liability?
Will the wheels need to be taken off for cleaning after brake dust collect and build up?

I think it looks great. When the wheels are spinning the car probably looks like it's floating. Would love to know more about them. Someone has got to know something. Oh and they could probably be cleaned with a water hose with no problem.

I'm not sure if it's a photochop b/c you can see the reflection of another car's wheel in the second pic.

I think it's a photochop also. If you look at the rear wheel in the 1st pic real close the lines do not line up around the rim. And the rivets are out of whack.
