They kinda look like what Doc did to the wheels on the BTTF Delorean 
that was pushed by the train to reach 88 mph...you might even 
say "Doc Brown" started that trend look!! Yea I know they were train 
rims.with no rubber,but they have the same "look"
Personally I think it just looks plain stupid,it's the opposite of 
having a jacked up car with really tiny tires.Both look silly and 
stupid.
