Donks still dominate amongst the "hip-hop" gangster wannabe crowd around here.

Hip hop rims are ugly. I prefer black rims, like BBS rims.

Those fancy rims and wheels are no match for Pa potholes.

There is no such thing as hip hop rims. If you were to buy the rim, you would only be purchasing the outer section of the wheel and have nothing to mount them to. That said, there is no such thing as hip hop wheels.

As far as the wheels in the OP's post, I've seen them around for at least 5+ years. They are ugly for sure but nothing new.

'Swangas' may be symbol of status, but police say they make you crime magnets | abc13.com

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.
