    Show truck - sure. Daily Driver - maybe, probably would ride like rocks. Towing - just a blow out or popping off the wheel waiting to happen

    Spending as much for all 4 tires vs 1 wheel is ridiculous, especially when it downgrades actual overall functionality. Economy, braking, acceleration, handling, towing capacity, suspension/bearing/transmission all take a hit...

    The aesthetics of sitting at a Walmart parking lot meet is worth it to a lot of people apparently by the amount of trucks I see on CO. YOLO

    This is great lol. One thing to remember. We are all lover of customization and trucks. The world is not vanilla and we don't all have to agree. Do whatever one wants to do and the piss with what anybody else thinks.

    I will try to get shots of the one in my neighborhood today. While it looks different, it doesn't look unfunctional. Its the guys daily driver. Hell if i run into him i'll take pics and ask him some questions about it.

    It will lose a lot of it’s functionality as a truck, and ride quality will be absolutely garbage.

    I see trucks like this all the time around here (Houston area), on the concrete. As bad as our roads are, I would never drive around like that for fear of replacing wheels on a regular basis.

    There is an “off road shop” in my town (Maxxed Performance in Baytown) that pretty much specializes in this sort of thing. The owner drives an F250 with 22-24” 14 wide wheels with ridiculous negative offset and rubber bands for tires. It looks atrocious and with my bad back, there’s no way I’d ever take a ride in it.

    I see so many trucks and jeeps around town with the huge Maxxed decals on them, and they all have the same styling. Wide rims sticking out entirely too far (one truck just about completely filled a lane on the highway) and tiny rubber bands for tires. Knobby rubber bands, of course, lol
