I can't believe it. I understand people always trying to outdo others but that's a bit much. Atleast it doesn't have those queer clear wheels.

Honestly how the hell do you even get into that car? It looks like you could honestly roll it trying to pull yourself in.

It doesn't even look like he's using tires anymore, it looks like the Re-Tread that truckers put on their tires. Which btw they are trying to out-law because they fall off on the road and truckers don't car to stop and take care of it, it litters the road and it causes accidents as either people run over em or swerve to avoid them as they see them at the last minute.

I've had a lip and exhaust sheilds owned by retreads before... and know many people with their fair share of retread damage. I hate them...

On that note... I hate the idiotic trend portrayed in the first picture.

they are throwback to 70s-early 80s mercedes aftermarket wheels.

Don't even want to know how much those spinners would weight. I would imagine them being very dangerous--like the saw blade rims the bad guys in James Bond movies had. :gay:

In a 235/0/32?


You could totally keep the drive shaft strait in that, you'd just have to angle the motor mounts and make more of a ...sling for the tranny.

There must be some damn stupid hoes to encourage men to do this. I can't imagine anyone getting laid because their car looks like that.


Also...how the hell does that **** not get stolen? I mean besides the fact that even if I was stealing it I wouldn't want to be seen in it. However, the point remains, what garage can fit that?

The centrifugal force would be sweet.



The guy near that purple ride with the kit is pretty gangsta. Looks like a cool car show.

See the lambo doors? Pretty awesome.

Those are 40" wheels.

As much as some of us thinks it looks dumb, I really admire the work that goes into making those things fit. Anyone look at the car itself? When was the last time you saw that particular car in such good condition?
