Holy crap that is retarded, not to mention he could only afford 2! Honestly you couldn't even jack those wheels to sell because no one else is stupid enough to try and use em.

One of my clients had 26" wheels one of his cars. He told me the tires were HAND CUT, special made.

BTW, it was on a Ferrari. And it looked GOOD.

I bet those clear 30" wheels were poorly engineered by some schmuck with a customs shop that specializes in bolting on wheels and tires. Huge safety risk and I wish the police would arrest the **** and the shop owner for public endangerment.

Seriously? Unless your doing some cool weight saving **** or interesting process,

id guess those things weigh a ton and will survive a grenade, and as for the machining any trained monkey can do that along with balancing it.


Whoa Just saw it, Forget what i wrote above i assumed they were the **** ive seen around here... Yeah, I like how in the picture two on the passenger side are different.

I was more concerned with the fact the lugs go through the plexi glass instead of through a central metal structure... those relatively tiny mounting holes are seeing far more load (with threads increasing the pressure at certain points) than it would take to crack on a standard 2G pothole.

I'm sorry, I like it. Wouldn't own it but if you're gunna do stupid, take it too the max. This guy definetely took stupid to a whole new level. As soon as he sells enough crack to light up all of Miami he'll have the cash for the other two wheels.

I'd just like to be there when he turns a corner and the wheel hub breaks through the plexi. $150 for the car, $5000 to lift it, $30,000 for wheels, look on his face as it crashes to the ground and rolls... Priceless.

I'm not convinced that he doesn't have 4 matching wheels on that car. The rolling diameters and tires look identical on both sides. I figured it was some sort of one-way reflective coating.

Feel free to find some pics to prove me wrong.
