Truly a awesome car. If you can afford to own one, then you can fix it.

Preventative maintenance to keep the tolerances tight, or so I've read. A slight wobble in your wheel at 200MPH could = death. When seen in that perspective, I would say it is worth it.

I suppose. You could also keep your tires balanced and your car off the curbs. If you can afford a 1 million dollar toy you can afford 50K wheels and tires

Forget that!! Even if I had the money,I wouldn't own one. I would make front page of CNN because a multimillionaire died in his million dollar car.

I doubt there are very many multimillionaires that can afford to own a car like this, unless you are referring to the fact that they are now multimillionaires after buying the car lol.
