Ridiculous ~30" rims

I just saw this on the 101 freeway in LA yesterday and didn't know what to think ?????👀

The tires looked to be less than 1 inch on the sidewall and the rims must be close to or more than 30". Just Ridiculous!!!!!!

Ahhh - reminds me of the old days battling typhoid and riding in the covered wagon for 3 weeks over to uncle Jim's place.

It's a Jeep thing....




In all seriousness, I am surprised he actually has a matching spare wheel.

This is exactly way I'm glad the d90 is NLA in the us. We would see thousands of d90 pimped out just like it if they were.

That is just incredible, there is an ass for every seat I guess.

Now when someone says they are "running 33's" you have to ask, "What size wheel?"

That's the 2013 Snoop Dog Limited Edition. Comes with matching faux-fur full length coat, cane and two ho's yo'. It only has two seats. The ho's share a single seat in beat down range to the driver up front, and the entire back is a sub-woofer. Also has a 200 amp alternator to run 75' of blue neon running through the undercarriage.
