      Happy Tuesday TCL!

      I am bored and I have been feeling white wheels on white cars lately, particularly with a polished lip.

      I would love to see some more:

      Yeah, baby! The ultimate hand-me-down cruiser of 17 year-old suburban kids who thought they were hot stuff because their car had sporty cladding...until it was replaced by the next generation Grand Prix as the ultimate hand-me-down cruiser of 17 year-old suburban kids who think they are hot stuff because their car has sporty cladding.

      Really; I know a dozen people from high school who had/have Grand Prixs. They were usually driving with the windows down, blasting a Wal Mart sub, and doing the gangsta lean so they can barely see out of the car. I think, in general, did half its business in the Toledo area.

      Well, unlike Rick Ross.......Tom Wolfe has an established career and isn't a novelty act.

      ...anyone else getting tired of seeing white cars?

      Reminds me of seeing silver cars 8-10 years ago.

      Racing wheels or not, they look like they've been swiped from a CJ7.

      As long as they are color matched, I think they can look good. Nothing like being a few shades off though...

      They're Jeep wheels... just like the American Racing wheels fitted to the General Lee will always be "Van Wheels" to me.
