I honestly wish I knew what they thought about themselves and their vehicle driving down the road like that.

Who cares let them do what they want with their money.

If they want Spree wheels let them have it. What are they doing to you?

BTW I don't think it's a "hip hop" fashion.

The distinctive wire wheels were originally created for 1983 and '84 Cadillacs. They went out of production for years until a California company called Texan Wire Wheel started making them again. "When you have these swangas, it's like, 'Yeah, you're that cat.' You know what I mean? You're that guy," Murray said.

Wow. That article is just sad. Yeah, one solution to not being robbed is to not have nice stuff. But I'm sure I could think of some others.....

I'll go ahead and say it. I like 'em. Would I have a set on any of my vehicles? Hell no, mainly because I wouldn't be caught dead owning any kind of car they would look good on. But on the right vehicle I could see the appeal.

For that matter, I'm also a fan of the 'low-rider' look. Again, I would never own one, but I like 'em.

Donks? No. Sorry. Just too ugly for me. Only trucks should be lifted.

Mike

I think you mean Sprewell's

"When Davin Wheels was unable to obtain a booth at the Auto Show, they were invited to join another vendor at the show, NBA star Latrell Sprewell's Sprewell Racing. Coincidentally, Sprewell is a Milwaukee native. For this reason, spinners are sometimes also called "Sprewells", although Sprewell has stated that he was not the inventor of Sprewells.[3]"
