Hot rodding comes in many shapes, forms and sizes, literally. What was once a hobby built on backyard engineering with late nights in the garage or shop, has become a bit spoiled. Late-model “hot rodding” has lost most of what actually made it a unique and specialized niche. However, as enthusiasts, whether you like them low, lifted, fast or from another planet…the point is, we all have a different idea on what hot rodding is.
Case in point, some of America’s deep obsession with large wheels. Not long ago, a set of 18-inch wheels were garnering up all the attention. When the 20-inch wheels were introduced to the aftermarket, the public went crazy for them. The auto manufacturer’s followed suit, too offering up factory wheel sizes to match the aftermarket. Have wheels sizes gotten out of hand – probably.
While most enthusiasts can agree, a larger set of wheels and tires can help a vehicle perform better on the street or track, at some point, the wheels diameter can have a negative impact on performance. But if you’re not into the performance side and enjoy more of the aesthetics a larger set of wheels can provide – hey, that’s just hot rodding.
While cruising for the latest in the market via AutoEvolution.com, we stumbled on this ultra-unique video of a late-model Silverado sporting some serious dish. Different parts of the country experience a variety of subcultures in the automotive hobby.
What’s popular in one state or part of the country can not be as popular in another. From our experience, it’s safe to say the deep South including Florida value vehicles with abnormally large wheels. Thirty-two inch wheels to be exact. These guys in Florida are in a league of their own. Dynasty Customs, located in Tampa Bay, Florida are no stranger to the aftermarket wheel crowd. In an effort to showcase their capabilities, they’ve fitted this late-model Silverado with a set of 32-inch, ENZO wheels from Forgiato.
The truck also has custom tinted taillights, chrome mirror housings and grille. Unfortunately, it’s difficult to really experience the sound system. Although, a close look at the truck shaking is an indication that this truck can really bump. Check out the video above. Is this just too far or have we not seen the end? Let us know!
