I'll hazard another guess:  when viewed side-on, the pair of big wheels subliminally are read by men as boobies.

I will not buy the Hot Wheels with over size rims. They look like inner city hooptie trash.

They've never lost touch with their inner 12 year old?

Big rims with rubber bands for traction, fine if you are just cruising Main Street so all the boys in the hood know you're cool.

I want to keep this link, and point to it in the inevitable fark thread where people are complaining that the final product deviated more than 2% from the concept study. This was a really good article and I hope everybody reads it.

Same with fashion. See designer sketches for dresses and the proportions are way off.

It's been done for so long that if you did a sketch with realistic proportions it would look terrible.

It's like seeing a barbie with human proportions, or vice versa. It just looks off, even though they're "supposed" to be the same.

I have 20"s on my truck without standard height wheels and they look good to me. I also have a 2/4 drop on it so the wheel wells look right and the truck is level.

Because there's a segment of enthusiasts who believe that rubber bands wrapped on wheels that weigh 100 lbs each with 1/2" of suspension travel = performance.

In short, morons.
