Click above high-res gallery of 30-inch wheels

It doesn't surprise us that someone makes a 30-inch wheel. It does, however, that someone actually makes a 30-inch tire. We are behind the times because Pirelli has been making the Scorpion Zero Asimmetrico in 315/30R30 sizes since 2006. We spotted two separate Hummer H2s sporting the tire along with two separate wheels - one with the Giovanna Caracas-8 and the other with Asanti AF 143, both, of course, in chrome. We'd really like to know how a Hummer H2 handles with 30-inch wheels in place, and we can't imagine what these do to the ride quality. The real kicker? We did a search for the Pirelli tires and found that they run for just over $2,000... each. If you include a spare like the blue H2 did, that means you're putting out well over $10,000 just in tires.

      I took pics of an H2 SUT at the local mall wearing those same Asantis and 30 inch tires, seen here:

      I speculated on the outrageous cost at the time but didn't think the tires alone would be $8k. A quick google search hasn't produced an estimate on the price of the wheels though, I would be interested in knowing what the total cost of the package would be.

      30-god-damn-inches? Isn't that like a friggen wagon wheel?! Somone impose government legislation to stop companies from wasting so much metal on stupidly oversized wheels. Use it to make, oh I dunno twice as many normal sized wheels instead!

      I must be old or something...but I just don't get the point of wheels like this, on a vehicle like a Hummer H2.
      They both just reek of conspicuous consumption, it's all about "over the top image", with no point what so ever.Those wheels and tires take a reasonable capable off road vehicle(that sadly is driven by soccer moms and wankers most of the time, not true off roaders) and make it absolutely useless.It won't be a moment too soon when this trend(big wheels on trucks/suvs) is finally over.

      If those were 24s or so with larger tires I'd like them.
