That'* one fugly ride, but to each their own. I bet it rides about as soft as a rock on a cobblestone drive.

To each their own, but I just don't get it. Why would anyone want to make their car look like a baby buggy? They ride rough, it wears on the drive train, you have no performance whats so ever, and IMO you look like a drug dealer.

Umm...... Tires are the final Drive Dan. hehehe Jack your'* up and slap some high profile SUV'* on and hit the track. People will think your special.

Ya'* there'* what 24'* look like on a Bonne if you really want. Gangsta. Rolling high. Boulevard strutting. I'm looking for roadblocks to happen in front of me. Can you imagine that in Pontiac'* "Arrest Me Red" color.

The only thing good about it is that you can work under your car without jacking it up.

I didn't think of that. Nothing beats sitting under the car to work on it.
