I thoght it was joke. I was hoping it was. But sadly, its true. I came across an e-mail describing how if you can't afford to bling-bling your ride, now you can rent the rims & tires to front like you're a baller.

Can't afford some spinners? Do something stupid like rent a set!

Check out them out: Rent-A-Wheel (CA), Rent-A-Wheel (FL), Rent-N-Roll

An actual quote:
Actor Ray Smith, 29, of Inglewood pays $60 a week for his rims, which will amount to more than $3,000 over a year for a set that could be
bought for $1,560 cash. "It's not that bad," he says. "It's affordable."

Earlier, I blogged about how I hate seeing the fake spinners on cars, maybe this is the solution.

I agree, nice rims are a near necessity to make your ride look unique, and special to you. But if you can't afford them... stick to aluminum, or plastic hubs.

*sigh* My people, my people. Why must we continue to waste our money trying to impress other people?

That's funny.

Dangit! Why didn't I think of this business?

On one of my visits to South Carolina, I came across many tv ads and stores advertising "Rent A Rim" I couldn't believe it. I thought it was a joke that I wasn't in on, but long and behold......

My mind is actually boggling right now. I mean, really. Wow.

So is there a rim repo contract to be had with these companies? I mean, how do they handle the customers who don't pay up? Or do their rims have some special tech that will render them inoperable upon non-payment, like the grocery carts that stop at the yellow line?

Some people have their priorities in the wrong place. Renting rims? What's next, renting gold and/or platinum fronts?
