Opinions on HEAVY CHROME WHEELS, BIG TIRES


Recommended Posts

Just curious, I guess I'm Old School. I see all kinds of vehicles with 19", 20" 23" wheel and tire sets that are on everything from luxury cars to SUVs. The wheels are usually heavily chromed and have all kinds of faceting and made such as to catch and reflect light. I have handled some of these and they are amazingly heavy and can imagine how they tear up a vehicle in regard to suspension, brakes, wheel bearings, etc.

I believe these wheels got their origin from monitarily successful Gangsta rappers in the ghetto that had specialty wheel companies like Boyd Coddington and Weld produce them to mimic the heavy chained medalions they wear around their neck.

What are your thoughts on these?

Pimp yo :censored: ride. Just don't park it near mine. You and I must have gone to the same old school, Nick49. Same school that nixes large screen TVs, 10kW sound systems, and blacked out windows. :soapbox:

20+" wheels looks pretty cool on a larger vehicle. Hell the new Bentleys come with 20+" chrome wheels on them. If done tastefully they can really class up a vehicle.

I'm not big on the spinners tho they do look cool on an Escelade or Yukon. With all that weight they totally hurt the performance and gas mileage of whatever your putting them on.

These wheels should never be used on a sports car as your basically ruining the delecate balance of handeling and power that a Boxster comes with. So in the right place they are just fine.
