Have you all seen these HRE Davin rims yet? I saw them for the first time two months ago on the 02' Cadillac Escalade and I thought that my eyes were playing tricks on me. Pretty damn cool looking, technically speaking, but I don't like the designs. The outside part of the rim spins freely from the rest of the wheel, even after the vehicle stops. I have heard that these cost close to $10,000 for a chrome set of 4. Bling Bling! Check it out in these vids:<P><A HREF="http://www.davinwheels.com/videos/autoshow.avi" TARGET=_blank>Davin Spinning Rims!</A><P><A HREF="http://www.davinwheels.com/videos/wheelspin.avi" TARGET=_blank>Davin Rims Close-Up!</A><P> <IMG SRC="http://www.davinwheels.com/images/SC430_small.jpg"> <P>-Drew<p>[This message has been edited by InDy (edited 12-06-2001).]

I was craking up so bad last time when I saw it on MTV's The Crib. <P>They sure take the Homie's Chromy to the next level. The ultimate ghettofied wheels I've ever seen.

My left rear has been dragging a while, and now it's starting to chew up the rotor.<P>

I don't know, if the family doesn't get another car that I can drive in the meantime, I will get some new rotors when I have a chance. <P>I wonder how much would it cost one to restore a 240 to a perfect condition. I was seriously considering changing out the carpet and the int. trim and just put another 3 Recaro seats for the car. Oh..yeah...did I mention that I want to repaint the whole car, get new bodykit, dechorme all the parts, and grind down that rain gutter? <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/biggrin.gif"><P>That's some expensive project, though.<P>

When they came to the cars they showed those wheels and they described it as the closest thing to moonwalking for your car. They also had that cool paint that changes color based on the angle you see it.<P>I wish I was rich...ridin around in the jacked up XC90 with the spinin wheels and black windows...hahaha...bling bling<P>

It's call the 'Import Touring Show' or something. Man..the two hosts just sound like some 10 yr old on crack. For some reason, one of them along with the owner of APC, who shows up every show (I guess he owns the show), reminded me of some cheap porn movie directors that get interview on TV all the time.<P>I guess just the way they talk and describe those southern r1ce.<BR>

In other words, that $74 was for a PAIR (hehe, just messin' with ya <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/biggrin.gif">).<P>

Wasn't a quality show like most things on Speedvision so I don't bother taping it or anything.<P>

I was kind of excited at the start of the show because I thought that they were going to show some cool stuff, but damn was I wrong. Those announcers are so annoying and the camera shots suck really bad. They never show you the whole car, just parts of it. The announcers act like gangster-wanna-be's and speak in this ghetto type language. I hate the way they do the camera effects and zooms, it makes it even more dumb than it already is. I mean this stuff would even make SnoopDog roll over in his grave it is so stupid.<P>-Drew<BR><p>[This message has been edited by InDy (edited 12-07-2001).]

Gotcha~...it's speedvision, not swedespeed. <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/biggrin.gif"><P>Yeah..those two guys are just way too funny. Hearing Caucasian guys trying to be ghetto and all....is just way too much fun, especially when the older announcer does it.<BR>It was def. not a high quality show...the camera crew on that show seems to be on drug most of the time. Well, okay those two guys, too. <P>

Damn, thank goodness for the 'editing' feature? Man, I must be such a junkie, that I type Swedespeed unconsciously at times. <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/wink.gif"><P>The most annoying thing about that show is the camera shots, because I can always just mute the volume to shut up the announcers. <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/wink.gif"><P>-Drew
