    Because they are morons, I never understood that either why people will spend 2000.00 for tires and wheels and put them on a 92 Hyundai that is only worth 200 bucks..

    sell. in case you compromise that could recommend that undesirable human beings does not be allowed having sound structures and advantageous rims. I recommend in case you have a motor vehicle you bought for $one thousand money, and you're telling me i'm unable to placed over $one thousand money properly worth right into a sound equipment and a few rims you're being stupid. it particularly is discrimination in the direction of undesirable human beings. particularly, is $2000 money approximately to purchase you a extra valuable motor vehicle? i think of not. I recommend if I even have an 8-music, i might prefer to stand up with cases and get a CD participant. The audio equipment would possibly not artwork or not that properly, and if i'm a music lover, that may not going to fly. If i prefer to have advantageous bass, i might placed money into some subs and a amp. additionally, if i'm helping some broke down hub caps, i might prefer to get some presentable rims. Now i'm not a value is stable genius, yet I surprisingly doubt the possibility of me getting audio equipment, subs, an amp, a CD participant, and new rims for purely $one thousand. i understand you have been only attempting to single out drug sellers in the hood who circulate overboard, yet damn, you probably did not ought to single out each and every broke n*gga in the hood who needs to play music and have advantageous rims. I forgot to function the reality you may get rims and a sound equipment, off perhaps a pal or somebody, properly worth extra desirable than what you definitely pay, if something, and placed it in a motor vehicle properly worth much less.

    Why? Well, to each his own. Image is everything. Even if the car doesn't run cause it's out of gas, it sure looks good there with those rims!!

    And just in case you didn't notice it, it has a sound system that will rock your world so you do notice it. Then you see the fancy rims.!!!

    Won't run, but man it sure looks and sounds good!!!!

    It has a lot to do with what the media portrays as being hip and cool. Kids are completely gullible now when it comes to the latest fad or fashion and big business is right there to suck up their money. The younger generations have become completely materialistic, more in tune with name brands and accessories than they are with social and world issues. Television , magazines, and billboards are full of shows and ads aimed at selling "must have to be cool" goods and services to our youth. Selling fads has become a business standard.

    because they want to fit into the class of the so-called "hood rich" . . but fail to realize that they are trying to live beyond their means . . . if your rims and your stereo system cost more than your car, that's a problem . . and instead of buying all those accesories, you need to invest in a new car!

    to kinda add to your question, i even see those same types of people spending all that money when they live in homes that have matresses sitting on the floor and clothes sitting in boxes.. spending all their money on their cars when they don't even have the basic things that you would expect to find in every home.

    the answer as i see it....

    a status symbol.. they think that having a cool car makes them more important people, so they spend every dime they can manage on their cars...

    because they think it makes their car better when honestly it bring down the Worth. The only good thing about it is when they put a decent stereo and speakers.

    I have noticed the same thing. The only thing I can figure is that they want to look cool broke down on the side of the road.
