Forget carbon fiber. Forget aluminum. Heck, you can even forget ordinary steel sheet and fiberglass. One man in Lithuania chose to build his dream wheels using expanding foam. Yep, the stuff they use in the construction industry to fill wall cavities.

We have to admit the result is somewhat impressive considering that all the man had to start with was the empty shell of an old Mercedes-Benz CLK-Class. And we also have to give him credit for coming up with an original design. There won’t be any police knocking on his door claiming he’s making forgeries, like what happened last year in Spain.
We only hope all the foam holds once he hits the highway.
You can see photos of the complete build thanks to Reddit user Geeky, who has uploaded them to imgur.
