I agree. Its like they try as hard as possible to make their cars as ugly as they can. I just don't get it.

Maybe my opinion would change if I was on welfare.

That's what I thought when I saw the first pic, but the second one...dang, those tires seem a bit too out of proportion, even for a Matchbox car

I have 18"s on my fiero and would not go any bigger. My caprice has 17" American racing rims and in my opinion puts donks to shame haha. Are the rims on that hummer really wood???

I'd buy that fiero just to save it. Or make it a 4x4 xD

If that thing is a duke, can you imagine how slow it is? Nothing like 300 lbs (of each rim) of un-spring weight.

notice: no brakes. single-gear. stupid wheels. I bet this guy is a future SUV-with-chrome-wheels-taller-than-your-neighbours-house owner.

Ive never seen a car or truck with any bigger than 18" look good except "Bigfoot". I prefer 16" myself. I guess its a matter of taste...some people got none....

We get is some Chrysler 300c SRT8s at work with factory 20's and they look really nice, pretty much if they come factory big I like them. But any big aftermarket chrome wheels just are not my style.

But then again I am a guy that every car he owns except my Fiero has stock wheels.

Even LX cars *Chrysler 300, Dodge Magnum, Dodge Charger* look goofy with anything over 22". Even 22" is really on the edge of too big depending on what style the wheel is.

Once a wheel reaches or goes beyond the size of a 18-wheeler. That's when it's time to rethink the idea. 18-wheelers roll with 22.5" wheels (If I'm not mistaken).

How did they even do that? Suspension lift? Is there that much articulation to lower the spindles that far? Maybe it just looks hard to fit them and still turn.

Hey, with those, my floor jack would actually fit under the engine cradle!

I still dont get why anyone would think that looks good.

300's can easily pull of 24's with no mods and still look tasteful. As far as semi tires, either 22.5 or 24. So you are correct.

Take it from me. Anything beyond 26.7" on the rear of any Fiero will cause interference. Hit a bump and your "kissing" the fender well. Long time ago I tested a 265/30/22 on #011 and it was too big.

Talk about a fender kisser, took this pic a few days ago, he may be driving on sidewalls in the corners:

There's a video on Youtube that promotes this type of "rolling" on sides. I think somebody posted a picture of a car here. Either way, it's a stupid tend. The tire co$t from doing this type of "rolling" is plain stupid.

Wow... and I thought I had seen it all... Poor fiero. That motor is just straining I'm sure. I would not want to be in there in a panic stop situation... LOL! Or maybe you just roll over the car in front of you! LOL!

We have the 80s "box" style cars with the 24-26s all over. They are either painted in some candy/gum paint scheme, actual candy color paint (usually poorly done), or rusted out and dented up! 90% of them, I would say the cars rims cost more then the car. The 90s "bubble" cars are not much better! All rolling on chrome that looks more like a pizza pan then a rim. The chargers, challengers, camaros, 300s, and magnums can pull off the 22 range and not look too bad. I just really hate the "chrome" donk look. At least keep it color keyed and deep dish so its not so... so.... over-bling!
