Every year at SEMA I look for the largest wheel I can find, and every year the diameters get a little larger. This year I found a 34-inch Lexani rim in the Asanti booth. It's so big that any vehicle shod with a set will be resigned to forever travelling in a straight line.



These giant wheels are so impractical that we've often wondered what people do when they pop one of their pretty low-profile tires. Thanks to Asani, now we know. Unfortunately, the tailgate-mounted spare probably exceeds the H2's maximum payload, which means throwing some groceries in the back might bend the frame.

Follow the jump for some more shots of Asanti's booth.

      what ever happened to the lowrider lifestyle when you rode on 13 and 14 inch spoked wheels that were truly beautiful and classy? instead we have wagon wheels rolling around!

      How old are you people? Times change, styles change. I agree that wheels this big look ridiculous but 20's to 24's can look good on the right vehicle's. For the guy looking for performance tires for his '80's jalopy, get a new (or at least newer)car. If you're driving a clunker w/ 14x7's on it then chances are you aren't going to be buying "performance tires anyway.

      32" wheels will look right at home on all those 92 Caprices and 84 Regals. They'll need a 10" lift kit to get it done. Imagine, a $1200 car with $5000 worth of wheels...and they're leased!!! Who the heck leases rims????....P O S E R S

      The clear wheels will not help brakes cool indeed. I wonder how well the plastic will hold up to the heat. I don't know anything about "polycarbonate." I know some plastics will creep over time and some will shatter under excessive load - both of which are not good for wheels.

      You guys know where this is going right.

      Don't like 'em, don't need 'em, don't want 'em, can't afford 'em.

      This big wheel craze is stupid, stupid, stupid. It looks bad, there is no functional benefit, it's expensive, and again, it looks bad. As the previous poster stated, for fools with money and without taste...

      Oh man, these will look great on my neon.

      This is so absurd - cars are beginning to look like Conestoga wagons crossing the American prarie!
