Re: 2011 GC Custom Wheels

WOW...in your own mind bro

Yes in my own mind that is what I think. Maybe at 27 I am just too old now. When I was 16 I bought a Navigator and put 20s on it. When I was 18 or 19 I bought a Yukon Denali and put 22s on it. Bought another YD a few years later and put 24s on it...then I started seeing soccer moms and everyone else with 22s and 24s and people with more money than taste with 26s...so I went back to stock.

Its not about the size, it's about the quality/style of the wheel, my brother had 24" asanti's black with chrome lip on his black RR, and it looked awesome, but I see people putting $1000 24's around here that look like complete shit! It's all about the taste

I agree with you there most the oversize rims out there are just plain ugly. I also live where the roads are about as well maintained as Baghdads because of constant freezing and thawing so having some tire sidewall makes a lot more sense as well.

I also don't understand buying a truck with a sophisticated 4wd system and then neutering it. When you upsize that much you are left with all the capability of a minivan, towing excepted.

Re: 2011 GC Custom Wheels

he bought it that way haha, in florida there is no need for 4wd, he just bought it because he wanted to look cool he sold it a year later for the same price he paid though, so he didnt do too bad i guess

Re: 2011 GC Custom Wheels

Yeah I am not going to hate if thats what people want to do...but personally I think it looks outdated.

If a set of giant wheels are going to make you happy who am I to argue with that? Just don't get those emblems with your rim size on them ok?

Repo....youre just gonnaa have to get over the big wheel thing. We cater to offroad and street jeeps and im personally not gonna allow bashing of either! If you can't handle that...then maybe JeepGarage isn't for you. Your opinionis fine one time in one thread...but not every wheel thread on the site.

Re: 2011 GC Custom Wheels

I wouldn't say I was bashing them, just that I don't see the point anymore. Just trying to get a little healthy debate going.

Anyway I promise never to have a viewpoint thats in conflict with your own from now on, and I won't say anything disparaging about oversize wheels...at least until someone asks about 24s.

Hugs and Kisses.

Re: 2011 GC Custom Wheels

Its not that man, its true....every wheel thread your bashing big wheels...

like your not the king of wheels, we dont need to listen to you.

some people like them, some dont. Simple as that. I agree with Scott, seeing you bitch, moan, and whine in every wheel thread is kind of annoying.

Like Scott said, JeepGarage is street/offroad community, and it always will be.
