I wonder if they are cost effective? I'm sure the lifespan of the wheels is not too long. Or they could possibly just clip on.

Either way, I would love to see them on some coasters soon.

If the lighted wheel concept fails because the wheels wear out too soon, you could just put LEDs on the sides of the coaster trains and use induction chargers above or underneath the trains in the station to recharge them. The wheel covers or anything else on the trains could be lit and not need to modify the wheels. LEDs can follow a chase pattern if you want them to appear to rotate or move, so the wheel rotation is unnecessary for movement.

Before the Six Flags corporation invests in light-up wheels for Tatsu how about they invest in round wheels for Nitro?

... it's a joke, I'm 99% sure they didn't pay a dime for those Tatsu wheels.
