IMO, it'* a culture/status symbol that I have NO interest in.

No, I'm not being "racist"

Those are rediculous, rim get cooler as you get bigger, but at a certain point it reverses, and they get worse as they get bigger...IMHO that point is around 20" for cars. I think sometimes 20'* even look too big on cars. I got maybe 1/4 was through and quit looking.

This ugly a$$ car looks almost like a John Deere


And sad to say, I know who owns this ride. he is a record producer for Sun Studios here in Memphis. I see that car around maybe 3 times a month.


We have many rides like that around here, but most are cheap imitations of real pimpin. Put $6000 rims on a $500 car with a $200 paintjob
