That guy is completely f****d up !
Too much time on his hand.
If he wanted to stand from the crowd, he did it hands on !

But then again, wheels that sticks that much from the car ... not so nice.
As they say, taste is personal, not discutable.

Wouldn't be my choice of design, but they'll still look sick.

I guess everyone has their own style but IMO stretch and hellaflush looks pretty lame on a BMW. Maybe on a ricer it works but not a Bimmer.

idk, somethings can be pulled off nicer than others. With that design it's kinda hard to judge w/o it on the vehicle

the amount of work that goes into making a custom wheels is ridiculous. The price tag he's proposing on his custom "art" is not for the weak hearted either.

I do consider what he is doing more-so art, than anything else.
