Click for larger version and a couple more pics of these Washingtonian rims

Next up in our whacky wheels from SEMA category are these spinners with a fun twist. Behind the blades the artist has painted the father of our country, President George Washington. And they are HUGE to boot. These particular rims measure 30 inches in diameter. As we've learned this year here in Vegas, 30 is the new 20. Although, considering the artist chose to paint Washington in his place on this country's favorite common coin, the quarter, we think 25-inch rims would have been more appropriate.

      I used to ask why, no I just look in dismay.

      Ahhhh Mr. Filipponio...

      As viewed from the side, two 25 cent pieces equal 50 cents, or "fiddy cent". Referencing hip hop's biggest star.

      Donks usually have the largest rims available, which for the moment are 30 inches. Using 25s would have been lame and too 2002.

      Let's stick to car culture and leave hip hop to the cool kids, M'kay?

      Why are you people complaining? If everyone had good taste (or whatever it is you define "good" taste as being), you wouldn't have anything to complain about, now would you? And most people aren't happy unless they're complaining.
      Face it -- some people find pleasure in different things and it's always going to be this way. I have gotten over getting irritated at this stuff, and just get on with my life and my brand of car enthusiasm.
