Hey guys I'm wondering if there is an 'ideal' design for a wheel for a car. I guess things that would be taken in to account would be weight, structural integrity and the designs moment of inertia. I would imagine there would be ideal designs that minimized the moment of inertia and thus would be very desirable for motorsport, however you see performance wheels take on all sorts of designs. How important is moment of inertia of a wheels design? Is it rather insignificant compared to other factors that contribute to performance? I'm under the impression its less important for cars then it is for motorbikes (due to engine pwr/tq characteristics?) Like, given a certain material, surely there would be an optimal design that minimized the wheels moment of inertia and offered best possible performance. Any insights?
