Carbon fiber wheels are becoming popular in the aftermarket, but are they worth it?

depends on your application...track day, road racing, or just to say they are carbon fiber and have some bragging rights. Our city streets wreak havoc on suspensions and wheels, I've had a couple bent due to water covered pot holes. Do we know how much they flex? Its getting a lot more complicated with new research and development of new materials and applied uses. Carbon fiber has to be one one the greatest inventions in the last 100 years.
