Saw this on another group and thought that there was a certain amount of truth to it.
I expect that the wheels would be susceptible to road damage as well with so little rubber to protect them.Putting low profile tires on a vehicle that has an unsprung solid axle = stupid. That car has to have a monster amount of wheel hop. Even if you went middle of the road between the 2 it would make the car handle like crap and the ride quality would be p00p
But it looks cool - at least to them.....I laugh at the ID - 10 - T people that own hondas or other imports and they lower the car 3-4" and then put on big wheels and tires that have next to 0 sidewall. By lowering the car they essentially made the whole vehicle unsprung weight because of how stiff the springs need to be in order to keep the car from bottoming out. Add in there the loss because of the side wall height being so small the handling on that car is now destroyed. so much as a pebble and the car will be hopping all over the place.
