Sorry that I have a job and didn't make it back here for a while. Dubs are rims that are 20 inches in diameter. No they do not need hubcaps.

I think you have just blown your cover as someone who knows about cars. Using the word "rims" when you mean to say wheels is normally a dead give away.

I'll ignore the sarcasm but thanks for clarifying what dubs are.

Back to the oh so intellectual discussion about fart can technology, my favourite brand is "Thermal". I'm not one for banality but if anyone's interested in what my favourite beverage is then it's "Mellow Yellow".

So if I call them rims I don't know anyhting about cars....hmmmm. I come here trying to find some people who love cars as much as me and I get berated about: a. not coming back and posting right away; and b: calling 'wheels' 'rims' or something.

Last time I checked even professional racers call them rims. If I heard "hey Jay, throw the slicks on those 18x9.5 rims." or: "hey jay, throw the slicks on those 18x9.5 wheels."--I wouldn't know the difference and neither would professional car people around the world.

I was hoping for a nice forum where we could talk about our love of cars.

Apparently you don't understand that a rim is part of the wheel and not the wheel itself. A rim is an edge, a border, something that goes around something. A wheel is the whole piece.

Only people from the "ghetto" refer to wheels as "rims."

Because a wheel is a wheel and a rim is just part of a wheel. Just because alot of people use the word doesn't make it correct. If you want to be part of the dumbing down of America, that is your prerogative. However, do not expect to be taken seriously or for us to let it ride.

does it make you feel like a big man to try and flame the crap out of people you dont even know? do you get your jollies from trying to look big? just because someone refers to something differently then you do, or if every now and then someone makes a spelling mistake? i think somebody needs to grow up and learn to just respect what other people say, and not feel the need to say something about every little thing.

Are you mad because I refuted your post with facts or because you choose to live outside of the facts. I told you it was your prerogotive and it is. Someday when you grow up you'll understand.

If you would take a moment to understand, then you'd see that I didn't mean the "ghetto" proper, but "ghetto" mind and understanding.

However, the prior pics of the cars and the "rims" vs. wheels serves as a stereotype that seems to fit well in our society.
