Maybe I am just becoming an old fart, but I hate those damn spinning rims that the bangers are driving around with now. I was just driving down the street and one of those asshats is stopped at an intersection waiting to turn onto the street I am on. I almost hit the brakes because for a second I thought he was pulling right out in front of me.

Am I becoming the youngest old fart at the age of 27, or should these things be illegal?

Poll coming.

I'm a 28 year old old fart, and I think that those spinner rims are the stupidest thing I've ever seen in my life!

Spinners are ghetto

I love spinners, but hate those damned moving rims!

They serve no purpose.
They distract other drivers.
IMHO, waste of money unless your intent is to piss people off or cause accidents.
Link Posted: 8/20/2004 9:39:18 AM EST
The first time I saw a car with them I thought they were stupid. After this, I am starting to think they are dangerous.

Like most "bling", spinners are flashy and eye-catching, but there's no substance and less sense.

I did see a set on a Chevy Avalanche, so I knew that the spinner-er had some money (unlike those who have the typical econo-ricer).

I want to know how they perform in (and after) a Pennsylvania winter, with all the salt and grit and stuff that gets on the roads here.

They're completely pointless and there is no way in hell I would ever get them...but I can't help but think they look kinda cool in a cheesy sort of way. Sort of like lava lamps.

Bah. Probably just means that he/she's on welfare, and MY tax dollars are paying for his food/rent/whatever else. Then he can afford to drive his big flashy car.


ETA: Last set of "Spinnahs!" I saw were on a lowered Chevrolet Suburban. So low, that while I was a the light next to them, I could damn near see the entire roof of their car from the driver's seat in my Suburban. Of course, I laughed my ass off, got the obligatory "F you, crackah!" look from the dumbasses in the car. I happily drove away, knowing that I could navigate the speed bumps in a parking lot MUCH easier than they could

Maybe I am just becoming an old fart, but I hate those damn spinning rims semiauto rifles that the bangers are driving around with i see at the range now. I was just driving down the street shooting some trap and one of those asshats fired like 5 rounds in 3 seconds is stopped at an intersection waiting to turn onto the street I am on. I almost hit the brakes because dropped my perazzi for a second I thought he was pulling right out in front of about to turn it on me.

Am I becoming the youngest old fart at the age of 27, or should these things be illegal?

Poll coming.

What the hell is up with middle class white kids today anyway? I see more of em', even here in rural America, trying to act "Getto" and "Black" like they're some god damn lower class crack dealer, with their pants hangin' off their ass. Makes me sick to see kids act like that. I know they were raised better then that. I though for damn sure I'd never see a low rider in my neck of the woods(saw plenty of em' in Phoenix though) but there they are, crusing around like their in E. LA or something. What in heck happened, back in the day kids in this part of the world were into Hot Rods not low riders. I guess it's like a jar full of crap, after a while it all settles to the bottom. Damn shame too.

I agree, except when it comes to something that is likely to cause accidents. I think at that point you have crossed the line where your rights end and mine begin.

They're pretty stupid (and ultra-expensive), but I don't think they should be banned. Only AK-16s with banana clips and more thrusts per squeeze should be banned.

+1. Damn liberal gun owners wanting to ban spinner rims!

Seriously, this seems to be the biggest double edged sword I see among 2nd amendment lovers, that in itself seems illogical.

Now, my opinion on the rims:

They are totally STUPID. I see douchey morons drivng them all over OC, even white upper class soccer moms. There is no racial group this belongs in, only the moron group.

Sometimes I see people with 20 inch spinner rims on their suburbans with a little tiny band of rubber surrounding the wheels -which is supposedly a tire. Just STUPID. Even saw a spinner which wasnt spinning while the others were. . No matter how bling your ride is, spinners just make it look so gimicky and cheap, despite the fact that they can cost upwards of 1k per wheel! REALLY STUPID to pay THAT much.

Should they be banned? No. Let stupid people have their stupid gimick wheels and look dumb.

I only mention a ban because they almost caused an accident that involved me today. It is almost like, "I can drive at night without my headlights on because I have the right to."

I owe nothing to ensure YOUR survival, thats your job. If you wander around aimlessly in condition white, get distracted by a pretty birdy flying by which results in you crashing and dying thats Darwin at work my friend - nothing more. No Difference between the pretty birdy and some asshats spinners.


If on the other hand I were to toss spike strips in front of you, then I would be liable.

You are falsely giving off cues that indicate you are moving when you aren't and that's my fault if I take it for what it appears to be?

I would argue that if YOU are unable determine whether another motor vehicle is in motion or not, you are the one endangering others.
