ive recently noticed people starting to buy rims for the rear only. like aftermarket 17s in the rear and stock 15-16 inch steelies in the front. is that the new thing or something? to look like a drag car i guess :confused: or is this some weird dallas thing :lol:

...or maybe they can only afford 2 rims :D

I hope it's not a fad. It looks so stupid when the front are just stock steelies, and the back are aftermarket rims. Is it poverty or just stupidity? The ones that drive around on the street and do it for looks(lord knows why) look so hideous. I know that it can be beneficial for those who drag at the track, but most of these clowns don't. I know, because they live on my street. Another prime example of rice.

Originally, it was a track thing. People would take thier cars to the strip with aftermarket wheels, and swap on slicks that were mounted on steelies. It also started as a drift thing in Japan on its own with because people would be slamming thier cars into curbs, and could not afford new sets of rims, so they'd slap on a pair of whatever they could find (usually other rims though).

Like other have said, it was orginally a track thing, I mostly see ppl doing that in Strong Island on the weekends when the strip is open, so most of the ppl thta I see do run at the track here, the ppl you see if they are not going to the track are probably doing it for show and or street race

I did that one winter when I kept bubbling the tires on my rims. Usually when you hit a pothole the front takes more abuse, so if You switch the front back to stock, you wont have it as bad.

i did that. i took my friend's 16 stock maxima rims for the left side and kept my hub caps on the right side for 2 days.

Over here in chicago majority of the riced out cars either have rims or 4 steelies on them.

theres nothing wrong with running all steelies... i like that better than hubcaps, thats for sure.

but the whole 2 rims/2 steelies thing is poser. theyve been doing that around here for years... i was never impressed. if you can only afford 2 rims, wait till you get the other 2 before you mount anything.

Never seen bling bling rims on a ricer, it's like mixing cultures. Bling bling is for gangsta and hispanics, ricers are white boys trying to be asian and african americans trying to be white (yes, i've seen some). I have seen some gangsta sport compacts (civic, corrolla) with blingin dubs, but it wasn't in ricer fashion.

But, that's just here in Cameron, MO and all over in Iowa.

I'm sorry if I offended anyone. I'm not talking about the lifestyles these people lead, just what they do to their cars. Ricers are kids in sport compacts that do anything in their right mind to make them look fast, not necessarily making the cars fast under the hood. Ricers have generic Konig rims and generic Advan rims and triple deck spoilers and outrageous bright puke green paint jobs. Gangtsa, I have seen, tend to use dubs on thier cars, dubs and lot's of fake gold trim. gangstas are all show as well, with 500 lbs of stereo equiptment and 500 lbs of (exxageration (sp?)) chrome. Now the people who really want sleepers and not make their car all gaudy and focus on the performence I call tuners. No graphics, no dubs, just some lightweight rims and alot of time and money under the hood. I'm not dissing any race or any lifestyle, I had a ricer honda that turned tuner, now I have a toyota that may be sportin some chrome rims, I haven' t really make up my mind yet. I love my rock music , I love my rap music, and I also watch pimp my ride, where, in the first time I have ever seen gangsta rims on a sport compact, which is WRONG in my book.
