Not new news, people around here have been renting to own 20" rims & tires for years.
Especially the spinner type rims.

BigBooper: Cybernetic: In other news, some people don't know how to do a basic budget that includes items like car maintenance.

RumsfeldsReplacement: At some point, don't you have to just give up and say "stupid is as stupid does"?  These people have no hope.

A lot of people know that this is a really bad deal, but because of medical bills, or lost jobs, or a host of other reasons, people get behind and can't get caught up.

These types of places pray on the desperate as much as they do on the stupid.

I'll keep that in mind next time I see a guy pull out of one of those places with brand new 20" rims on his '88 Brougham and a big screen strapped to the roof.
