    Pirelli: We can sell more tires if F1 switches over to 18" wheels.

    Since when has any part of an F1 car been relevant to a person's daily driver?

    13" I think... and I have to be honest. I much prefer that look to the 18" wheels they tested.

    Not to mention that in this era of "cost savings" it means introducing yet another generation of cars designed to deal with the much smaller compliance of those wheels.
