What's with those retarded looking hubcap/wheels that spin around at different revolutions than the tire itself? The ones that have the spinning deal on the inside of the hubcap are bad enough, but the ones that have the spinning deal on the outside of the hubcap are even more ridiculous looking. I guess K-Mart can't keep 'em in stock because you see them everywhere.

This fad is right up there on the wankness scale with people who drive around with a boat propeller on the back of their car.

I can't help but laugh to this one because I get a kick out of these guys everytime I see this. The people who are driving a car that is on its last breath, but breaking out for the $19.95 Spinners!. Or how about the flame decals up the side of the car to go along with the K-Mart Spinners.

This Buds for you!

Hey bro, my spinning caps are gangsta! Best $20 I ever spent. I put these things on my Civic and the poon comes so fast I needed a huge aluminum wing to keep my downforce during my 300 mph getaway. Now if I could only afford a giant coffee-can exhaust pipe and some neon lights to frost the cake...

Dr Love, I think you can relocate to my town, at least temporarily until the fad fades, as it seems to be doing here. Don't see near as many as we used to a while back. I say these people never had pinwheels as children.

You gotta admit, the blue scrotum is the best accessory even made for a car

Ralph_The_Wonder_Llama, I've only seen one of those on a vehicle, and, thank goodness, it wasn't in my town. What's next, busts for the front of a car? No, wait, I hear the response....."Yeah!" '

And Anx I would have to place you above both the blue stuff and the spinners when it comes to being strange. You take the cake for simply posting this picture.

Those cheap spinner hubcaps crack me up too. They remind me of something that would stick out of a chariots wheels to f--k up the other guys wheels. Where I live I dont see as many of the hubcap spinners (outside ones) as I do the real rim spinners (where it spins on the inside) which are equally lame. But i guess if you've got the spinners, your "instant gangsta". The best is when one spinner seizes up, and you see some fool riding around with 3 spinning and one stuck!

I see these ludicrous accessories all of the time. They are usually on cheap used Hondas or Hyundai cars driven by guys who have seen Fast and Furious one too many times which, obviously, makes these guys proficient at driving.

Inevitably, I see these guys revving it up along side while waiting at a red light. When the light turns to green, they lay rubber and roar off. Naturally, I accelerate normally. I keep to the speed limit and when I get to the next red light, guess who is next to me...revving their engine?

there are some nice looking hub caps out there but the nice ones cost an arm and a leg. people buy these things to add "value" to their car, if they buy expensive spinner rims, their car is worth more in total, or they just buy them to show off on the ride to work.

You know, it's funny you bring that up. The other day I was pulling in to my local drug store and there was an Escalade with those stupid spinners pulling out. It hadn't pulled out on to the street yet but the spinners gave it the illusion that it was pulling out and I was about twenty feet from the Escalade doing about 35 mph. So I slammed on my brakes but I didn't really have to.

I can definitely see these idiotic things causing an accident.

Peace

Considering the depreciation that a new car undergoes within the first couple of years of purchase, all I can say is that for a hub cap to add "value", they had better be some pretty awesome hubcaps! From my point of view, "snazzy" hubcaps is the last thing that I'd look at if I was purchasing a car. In fact, I'd automatically assume that faddish hub caps were a diversion to catch the eye of some Fast and Furious "knuckle dragging" fad follower. These miscreants are attracted to shiny things and they might just overlook the fact that the engine is leaking oil and that the rust is all that is holding the rest of the car together.

it's that whole RUB wannabe thing that some people strive for. Rich Urban Bastards buy humvees with 3 phones and a clothes drier built in just to look cool. The broke guys that wannabe rich buy crap from low end stores to make believe they are rich so they can pretend they are cool. Buying cool NEVER works in real life.

Also, anyone who uses the word BLING should be pistol whipped.

Man, y'all are lame.


Spinners are clean on the right whips. Maybe you're mad because you can't pay 40 Gs a RIM for the REAL Sprewells. Hell, damn near no one else on the block can, so you buy the cheaper rims.

Tell me, what kind of rims DO y'all like? Y'all DO know that the purpose of rims is to make the car flashier, right?

Do you know how many old ladies you have to beat up and rob to afford just one rim?:w:

Did you mean $4,000 a rim or $40,000 a rim?
