WTF Is That?: Car Spotted With Foot Long Wire Rims Protruding From Wheels

March 16, 2018

This is a short video of a Cadillac spotted in Houston, Texas with wire rims protruding further than a foot out from each of its wheels. It's a perfect example of how to do it completely wrong. Although, I don't have much room to talk, I rock spokey dokes on all my rims and a baseball card between the spokes of my back wheel. "You're talking about your bike." No, I'm talking about my Ferrari. Of course my bike I've never even had a driver's license, but only because I refused to take my mask off for the photo. "Plus you failed the driving test." That creek came out of nowhere.

Keep going for the video.

Thanks to Luc, who agrees they should at least shoot flames.

    something to keep a motorcycle from trying to be next to me in the lane(or more likely buzzing by at 80mph inside my lane)? I like it

  • David Gabel

    And I thought those 6 inch long "spikes" that are for lug nuts was bad. This is just poor taste douchebaggary

  • Someone played Spy Hunter on NES too many times...

  • captaindash

    NOBODY has played Spy Hunter too many times. It's impossible.

    I would just get in front and slam on my breaks in front of them…

    I wanna say I hope you get shot, but less. i hope you get tased and shit yourself in public i guess

    (and that any accident you deliberately cause gives you back problems and the other guy is some poor elderly mexican woman with no insurance so you can't sue over it and have to pay the bills yourself)

    "Houston, TX"

    Of course it is.

  • DC Madman

    Over the line dude.

  • GeneralDisorder

    One toke, man... one toke.

    It is stupid and illegal in most states, that what it is.

  • jeff

    It's stupid and illegal in Texas too. I think you can't have anything sticking out further than 3 inches from the wheel well.

  • Doog

    Spy Hunter?
    I feel like you could just take an umbrella frame, without the actual umbrella, and attach it to your rim.

  • Guesticle

    it'd go nice with my whistler (goes woo)

  • asdfadfs

    haven't you seen any gladiator movies? this is to attack the other cars' tires if they get too close

  • TheQiwiMan

    I've driven through Houston before.

    These kinds of defensive modifications to your car are definitely needed.

    Will be welding a machine gun to my car next time I have to drive through there..

  • Jenness

    I hate these things and think they should be illegal. It sucks when a semi goes on one side and one of these on the other, it's like Mad Maxx.

  • Guesticle

    by that logic morotcycles should be illegal

  • Mark

    I'm surprised they are not illegal. Typically anything that extends out past the body of your car is considered illegal for safety reasons.

  • jodyberry

    And THAT'S why bikers don't split lanes in Houston!

  • Guesticle

    they should be mandatory on all cars!
