    I was over on the Sig forum today as I love their "rant" section as it's really funny. The topic was people that drive crappy cars with mega sound systems in them and blasting away to the irritation of everyone. Anyway, one poster mentioned that folks actually RENT big rims & tires for their cars so they can be cool on the weekends. Can this be true? Has our society devolved to this point?

    I know a few years ago, my brother (a mechanic at Ford) had a fella bring in his Navigator and during the conversation the guy mentioned he only had 2 monthly payments: his truck and the rims/tires on it. I cracked up hearing about financing big rims, but the thought of renting them really makes me wonder. Ok folks, is this true, can you rent big rims & tires for the weekend??? :confused:

    I've heard this is true, but I have yet to find a place where I can get them.

    There was a place near my house that was "rent to own" wheels and tires.
    I dont think it lasted more than a year or so.
    Yes even in Salt Lake City it can happen...

    100% true. There are several companies in this area that "rent" rims and tires. The shops are VERY popular in three communities in the Tacoma area.

    There is a rent-to-own wheel place here in town; it seems to specialize in chrome & LARGE.

    Another true vote here. You do have to live in the right area and it is cash only. You can also rent stereo systems and ground effects.

    I guess that in those neighborhoods, an "Intelligence Rental" agency would be a bust, as would a "Get an Actual Job" agency.

    i knew people in jersey that had a million dollar home drove a 7 series bmw and a 500 benz. They had furniture in their bedroom and family room and were making payments on all of that too. To rent a center.

    I must admit too that I had such piss poor credit at one time I had to do a rent to own on a COMPAQ computer. So yes you can rent rims I am sure of it.

    I've never understood your obsession with Fergie. I just don't get it.

    I'm not the kind of person who can get you that. I can photoshop you into a picture will all of them at the same time so you can brag to your friends, but thats about it.

    There's a place in Bradenton that rents tires and rims, though I'm not sure if sound systems are available too. Here, you have to rent them by the month not just for a weekend.

    Price a set of those "Twentytwos" with ultra-low profile tires - they can go for more than the car they are on! I saw a set priced at $5,000 once. I do NOT get it - I prefer to put my money in a solid vehicle that runs good and is reliable - not a clapped-out 70's grocery getter with rims that need a mortgage and a stereo system that could jar the bones of an entire small town!......

    The worse I've seen is where a car was blinged out on one side and ratty on the other. Depending on which way he was going, is what you saw.

    Yep. I seen em.

    If you see a shop that does, it's a very good indication to get out of that neighborhood post haste.
