1991 Acura NSX: That Must've Hurt

July 16, 2012

I was washing our NSX this morning in my backyard when I noticed an impact dent in the front right wheel. In the picture, it's right at the 11 o'clock position.

Then I noticed this one on the rear left wheel.

I don't know when these wheels got dented, but a little investigation has at least one of the incidents occurring before March. I dug up a picture I shot at Buttonwillow Raceway and zoomed in tight on the front wheel. Bingo! There it is.

I don't feel any vibrations at speed, though. If it were my personal car, I'd probably some new wheels on ebay, but there wouldn't be any rush to get it done. I'd wait until I found the right wheel and price.
