There is something to be said for plain Jane steel wheels. I did something similar a long time ago with my Pontiac Tempest. Pulled a U turn and hit the center meridian I didn't know was there. Flew through the air over it. No apparent damage......except a week later when the idler arm broke off taking a piece of the frame with it.
One wheel turned the other just wouldn't move. Wheels were fine though with not even a dent and I didn't lose the chrome hub cap either.
The year was 1975 when drinking and driving was still cool.
