73 on 26" rims


Recommended Posts

Looks like a solid car... but the wheels are just too much. The people who commented on the video even feel the same way. If they'd just stuck with 20s... I never thought I'd hear myself say that... rofl

The 26" rims don't piss me off. Rims can be swapped. It doesn't take more than a set of stock rims to turn a covered wagon like this into a freshly un-Donked car.

 

HOWEVER - hammering the living piss out of the bottom edge of the quarters and the fenders to get those 26" rims to fit is grounds for capital punishment.

 

Why is it that Donkmobile owners are so content with spending a shitload on the tires, wheels, and spacers - but can't be bothered to have a halfway decent bodyshop modify the fenders when their tires won't clear? I've seen every hack in the book, but never a remotely nice job.

Jeez you need a ladder to get in there.

If you don't have time to do it right the first time, you sure as Hell don't have time to do it right the second time.

Sorry I'd need a frontal lobotomy (maybe more) before I WANTED to get in there...

WTF!!!! Stupid, just stupid.. :D I don't like it at all, but some people does and they have to follow there own style of course.. But it is just to big, can't be fun at all to ride on them, I think it loses some of the comfort with those big rims on :D

Yeah,

 

It kind of reminds me of the Seventies fashion craze when super sized bigger flares and bigger stacked platform shoes were all the rage. The more the bigger, the better!! Hmmmmmmmmm, well maybe.:D

I love how they left the brakes stock. The drums in the back look so stupid with such huge rims. What a waste.

I feel like we all laugh at them now, but if there was ever a gigantic flood, and all the streets were a foot underwater, the SUPER 32" DUBZ would be really effective in getting around.

I get it. Not my style but I get it. No different that folks putting squirel tails on their antenna back in the day or a chain steering wheel in the 70's. It's a style that started in the Miami and other Southern cities.

 

That said, there's no way I'd ride that. For the money spent on wheels and tires, you'd have at least thought that they'd upgrade the brakes.

 

Rear drums on 26" wheels? Hope he never has to make an abrubt stop.....
