What are the wheel tyre diameters for these wheels-----16.5 or 17"  ?
2000 RSV Mille SP "Race SP" OZ-Magnesium 

Do I assume that they were anodized in the Aprilia blue colour?

SP wheels are a dark gray colour I am pretty sure and painted not anodised.

So does anyone have experience with carbon wheels on the road?  Do they hold up to normal driving conditions on the street?

I've got a pair, there excellent.

Pictures are on the Web just goggle "bst broken wheels" etc

https://www.google.co.uk/search?q=picture+broken+bst+wheels&oq=picture+broken+bst+wheel&aqs=chrome.1.69i57j33.12300j0j4&client=tablet-android-samsung&sourceid=chrome-mobile&ie=UTF-8#imgrc=mKSM_35SHl11VM:

The carbon wheels are stronger than the equivalent wheels, lighter as well. In this litigious time do you think they could sell them for the road if there was any chance of unprovoked failure ?
There is a race/track day guy whose wheel collapsed, but I think he bought them second hand so unknown history....

Lots on tut Web, I trust them....

Good to hear.

Thankfully I have an 01 Mille R and the OZ's are in perfect shape.  Weight reduction is definitely on my list of things to do, and pound for pound, the wheels are not bad, cost-wise.  I come from the formula car racing world where people spend ridiculous amounts of money for even smaller gains!

I am going after weight saving as well, as is this excellent thread where he is searching for all those little savings....

http://rsvr.net/aprilia-rsv-speciale-project_topic20399_page1&SID=9724-e2a3e7a98f967ce12a559456134259.html

Lithium battery is probably the pound for £1 saving....then get rid of the original silencer. Then it gets harder, do you want lights ?

I have kept the lights, but have worked on other savings...



Like the wheel spindles are the same as the 999 ducati for example.
And dropping from 525 chain to the 520 and lightweight sprockets.

When I bought mine they are 5 weeks delivery for the rsv, and hps if you are in Britain are saying there is a price rise coming !

They really are that good ! Bear in mind tyre weights !
Here is a review from 2015 showing whose tyres are lightest,
