IMO, wheels should not be over 18 inches, but hey, w/e floats your boat. Prepare for a bad ride, oh, and also broken axles

i like them thought... theres a guy around my town that has an old impala with like 24 inch rims on it, they stick out then up.... he had to raise the car, and he makes more of an 8 point turn rather than a 3, lol.... they look like massive mirrors, i like them though, he thinks im always looking at them when I am near him, but im just using the reflection to see my bonnie
