I think it is all about getting attention.... like facial tattoos and piercings.

It bothers me more to see tall wheels on street rods. "Back in the day" a serious horsepower car had deep rims and 10" tall sidewalls on the rear... either slicks or giant street tires! That's what a "serious" hot rod looks like to me.

It just hard to look at a car with 3" tall sidewalls... and think of it as "bad". {:-(
