"Cen Cal" style trucks. WTF!?!

What is the point of this? Giant lift and tiny tires?

I think they're supposed to look like pre runners, but in reality look like ass.

I have NO IDEA what the deal is but more and more people are doing this. I work at a company that installs lifts and just last week we had a customer do 8 inches on a 2007 dodge and do 33's

He wanted 8 inches of lift in the front and 2 inches in the back. It left looking almost identical to the silver Dodge in that picture. Hammered shit if you ask me.

You don't want the tires to hide all that bling.

I work in Fresno, the shithole capital of California. I absolutely hate these trucks, and they are everywhere. I asked one Mexican guy when he was going to buy full size tires for it? He wasn't amused.

I don't think the the rim should ever be more than half the size of the tire. If you are running an 18" rim, you should have at least 36" tires. Pretty soon, we will be seeing trucks running 26's with super low pro tires with a 12" lift. Something kinda like this:

That place "Show Off" in the first picture is in modesto. I drive by there all the time and try to look the other way so I don't fawking puke. Theres another shop that does stupid shit like that in hilmar. Those worthless piles of shit are all over the place out here. It's fun to point and laugh when they stop next to you at a light.

Disco is a class unto itself



Seen a shit ton of trucks like that. And the cars where even better. Imagen an 80 Olds Cutlass with red heavy ass cloth on the seats, imagen old stage curtains and around the doors they have those hanging ball thingies. the whole interior is one fabric and one color. Then they have a paint job worth 20k and a stereo to match yet they live in the hood in an apartment infested with god knows what

I think the neon green suspension paint clashes a bit.

Its the new clown car. Instead of honda civics with 18 inch wheels and tires that are way to narrow for the wheels. its ghetto ass trucks. The stack is the new fart pipe muffler.

I don't get it at all. Maybe I should ask the hardcore wheeler drivein' it...
