A few things, Wu-Zi.


They look absolutely retarded. People driving in them, look even more retarded.

They f*** with your gas mileage.


Why must these idiots LOWER trucks and RAISE cars? Always have to be backwards, don't they? I'd laugh so hard to see one of these things roll. That would make my day.

There is no "freedom of speech" in forums, yes you can say what you want but in the end what the mods say gos. This is not a democracy.

I wish I could find the video. There was a video of someone with 30'' (I think) polyurethane wheels. He tried to drag race it and snapped the axle shaft. The wheel and axle shaft went rolling down the track.

Moral of the story, if you are going to run 30'' tires and like 40'' wheels, get heavier axles.

Yep. Only in America (more specifically, Houston), there exists cars that look like shit. Now, I can accept big rims on cars. Just not when it's like THAT. Those cars look ridiculous, and I mean that in the worst possible way.

Yeah, I'm new here. Don't piss me off and we'll be fine. :D

Aw, my first post. You may call it "arrogant". I prefer "foreshadowing".

They look like a cheap kid's toy car.

As for gas mileage, as long as the car has plenty of power, larger wheels will increase the MPG. The problem is that the car's
suspension is usually locked in place & the ride is like a low-rider. Once again, the streets are blocked w/ crapwagons that
can only go 20-25 MPH (30-40 KPH).

They're showing up in the Midwest, too.

If you love something, set it free. If it comes back, it's meant to be.

If not, point & laugh when it flies into a woodchipper.

The larger wheels and tires would have the effect of higher gear ratios. But it would be a lot of rotating mass. I considered going with taller tires on my Taurus. One of the reasons was a tad better gas mileage, the other was I wouldn't be putting so many miles on the odometer.

Edit: I believe it's called Donk or something.

That Olds in the first post looked nice except for the wheels. Put a nice set of 17s on & I'd drive it.
