you still have 0
The Ground speed is the speed over the ground - the bottom of the tire is at 0 mph unless it is slipping and the top is twice the Ground speed moving forward - the center of the tire is at ground speed.

i don't think the insight has any flare to their skirts. they're pretty flat straight across. remember, the insight's rear track is narrower than the front, so that helps with the skirt clearance issue.

right

bottom of tire 0
center/hub 1
top of tire 2 , or twice the center/hub speed (gound speed, not twice the bottom of tire speed)

Why not buy a aftermarket

Why not buy a aftermarket wheel with more backspacing?

I think most of the aftermarket wheels are wider than stock, not skinnier.

Does anyone know what the bolt pattern is on teh honda insights? I they their wheels are really narrow.

The easiest thing to do is go to tirerack and choose wheels for an Insight. It will tell you the bolt pattern. im toooo lazy to look. Speaking of Insights, I will be driving one from Wed thru Sat. Hypermiling heaven!
