What's happening to the custom wheel market? Why are most custom wheels seen today TOO big? What happened to the tight 13's and 14's that I always used to see. I don't like to hate, but I can't stand seeing big rims on tiny cars. The big rims look good only on SUV's to me and that's just a couple of them. I'm always going to stick to the 13's & 14's no matter how much they fade out. How does everyone else feel?

man, small rims will NEVER fade out. If you talk about lowriders you talk about hydro`s and small rims. There are alot of posers and players and ignorant people who think they cool by copying some rapper. shit i will always ride 13s even if im the only one in the world, and i think most true lowriders think that way. We should respect the old schol, because those are the lowrider-roots, and wires were there from the beginning!

wow 6 people think they arent fading out. its sad but true. they are fading out. and i dont think big rims are going anywhere anytime soon. why do you think they are so cheap?..because nobody (not including myself) wants them anymore. why do you think 20+ cost so much? because people will pay.

hell naw ... i know small rims are less out here ... but to the heart i aint changing cause another crowd is doin it ...let them do their thang i'm gonna do mine ... i talked to as-10 mini trucker out here on 17' or 18 inch alloys ... but he assured me he had a set of d's at home for it ... (he's forgiven)

love knowin that me and my ride have the same size feet ....

and if i ever come out with anything with rims bigger than say a 17(remember about ten years ago this was the biggest?)you can be damn sure it's gonna be a monster! (say maybe a hummer with white walls...lol)

Lowriders roll 13's and 14's only, nothing else will ever be accepted its as simple as that, anything else just isnt lowriding.

If you took Southside Player and put 20's on it, it would no longer be a lowrider. :cool:

Ask half those guys out west and theyll tell you,13s on the lowrider but something big on the daily driver. Even they are starting to do differnt things with their rims,like paint ,powder coating and even BIG WHEELS ON G-BODIES AND LACS,at first i was aganst it but cars are front wheel drive ,uni-bodies now, we gotta do something to them.

And it would be a lowrider , just NEW AGE , not that 20s would look better than 13s on THAT car.But that is an option for someone who doesnt want to cut a clean classic car.If you got 13s you need lifts or it just dont feel right.
