Ewwww....low-riding trucks on big shiney rims. Please..someone put a .50 BMG round through the block and put it out of its misery. :(

Are there even TIRES on that yellow-riced cobalt? It looks like it is just sitting on the rim.
It makes me almost want to cry seeing cars turned into abominations like that. :(

I would expect nothing less from a hhr/ssr owner.

That's pretty much what I expected from this narrow minded forum in the first place. MIllions of SEMA participants and aftermarket folks can't be wrong, but I am sure you think so. You soooo underestimate the business world. What criteria do you all use to judge things anyway?

Criteria: A standard by which something is judged.

I use this a lot with my students when they don't "Like" a piece of art and show them how different kinds of art can be appreciated but not liked. What you like has nothing to do with the criteria for judging something. When something is judged merely on what one likes, it is called "Prejudice". That is eliminated when you list criteria for a better understanding of other's points of view. There are lots of "Ricer" adaptations that others have done to all types of brands I don't like, but their passion for automotive enthusiasm is tremendously appreciated. A whole new generation of car guys is dawning upon us and you all seem to be in just one very small minority of thinking, and it is soooo narrow! Open up and you just may see that there is more to these designs than meets the eye.:patriot:

Oh, and I apologize for offending any of you "Purests" out there.

I'm glad to see GM getting more of an interest in this market.
It's certainly somewhere they need to get a good grasp on, and they've done alot there in the past few years, which is a great thing.

Sure it's not my cup of tea, but it's definitely a big market and has shown its own worth, so from that I can respect it. :)

The people that own these cars enjoy working on them, and are just as enthusiastic about their cars as we are about our cars.
So just because they're different doesn't make it stupid.
The modifications are apparent, and there's some big money into some of those cars!

To me, as long as it's domestic, it's all good. :thumbsup:

Purist...But anyway...LOL

Actually, that Sky and the C10 are good looking and have tasteful mods. I HATE that Avalanche though. I wouldn't consider any of those ricer though. Did I mention that Avalanche makes me yak?

I saw a pickup the other day on MAAAASSIVE rims. I didn't get a good look at it cause my dad and I were driving by and it was at a gas station. But it was shocking (read: Ugly-ass) enough for me to totally lose my train of thought and make me stop mid-statement when talking to my father.

I see nothing wrong with big ass wheels. I actually like it in most cases, but it can't be a "Donk" or whatever they call it. 26" Rims DO NOT belong on a 86 Monte Carlo. If it's a car, and the wheels make it sit higher than my Dodge RAM, there's a problem.

To me..it's a wheel-size to car ratio. 2ft tall rims are silly as hell, no matter what vehicle they're on. I saw a Mustang Fox for sale..it has chrome rims..but they're nice..stock-ish sized 5 spokers. If it had 22's on it...that'd just be a crime against automobiles.

So putting 19's on the front and 21's on the back of my Camaro would be ridiculous and a crime against nature? Didn't the concept have a 18/20 combo? Aren't the new Z06's a 19/21 combo?

I'm planning on 19x8s in the front and 21x11s in the rear.

Thus..the wheel-size to car ratio. The camaro is DESIGNED to handle large rims. So they look good on them. There is a difference between a camaro made to handle huge wheels and a Silverado made to handle 15" wheels.

I don't mind the low profile tires..it's the huge amounts of bling I dislike. And to each his own, you like comically massive wheels, and I don't.
Trucks may have large wheel openings, but large wheel openings don't matter when the 26+" wheels they're sitting on are on a lift kit..totally ignoring the wheel wells.

See, now with a lift kit I think anything over an 18" wheel is ludicrous, and it better have at least mild offroad tires. No low pros. I guess I don't care how big the wheel is as long as it's snugly in the wheel well.
