    I didn't know you could buy lights like that! I've always been a fan of under carriage lights, so to me this is really cool. lol!

    Lol those train wheels are sad I remember a guy came into a store I used to manage some years back

    and he was driving a Escalade on 25s I couldn't stop laughing after I seen it. That's ridiculous

    there is one on the internet on the 30s here it is.

    I here it's real popular in Lousiana fullsize cars with train wheels. Maybe it's

    me but anything over 22s is idiotic and probably makes most cars rather unpleasant

    to drive. I rode in a Suburban on 23s and that was no fun. The Lights are cool I have

    seen some nice setups I liked.

    I'm still wondering how those lights work in the wheels. Does that light ring rotate with the wheel or is it mounted in a way so that it stays stationary. If it rotates, how do the wires to power it not twist. OR, it is a wireless light? Fascinating!

    The ones I saw WCC do were stationary behind the wheels.

    I have to say the lights in the right color and right rim at night would be appealing.
