Are We Going Nuts?

Wheels Too Big? Car Too Low

Are our hot rods getting too low with wheels too large?

When did hot rodders adopt the lowrider look for their cars? As far as I'm concerned the current trend of 20-inch wheels and tires with a body slammed on the ground is too Tijuana. I understand we want to lower our cars because it looks better and can improve handling, and larger wheels look better than stock 14s, but some people are throwing good taste to the trash bin. Technology is great, but how far is too far. Just because your air suspension allows you lower your car, that doesn't mean you should display it on the ground. I like to drink Scotch, but I don't guzzle it a gallon at a time.
