Spiked wheels are back on this Porsche Panamera
Respect of social distancing
We have already seen them on a Bentley Bentayga. Spike rims are a real specialty of American tuning. And in spite of a more than questionable visual rendering, they are visibly fashionable. As a result, today it is a Porsche Panamera that has been fitted with these strange wheels.
If the first generation of the Porsche Panamera is not in itself a real aesthetic success, these wheels with a more than insolent design do not help in any way. And compared to the Bentley Bentayga we saw a month ago, the spikes here are much longer, which further contributes to the strange aspect of the thing.
These wheels won't make everyday driving any easier. With their particular profile, they have more than enough to disturb the aerodynamics of the car and thus increase fuel consumption. And in the city, the width of the vehicle will have to be taken into account, which has also been increased in this case.
Nevertheless, this is still ideal to ensure that social distancing is respected. In any case, the owner has thought of everything in case of clumsiness. He added a spare wheel at the rear of the German sedan. Here again, the result is more than doubtful...
