Riverside County's roads have a love affair with big alloy wheels and rubber band tyres ...
In my opinion , Classic , Muscle , Pony , etc. , cars don't look right with wheels which are larger than 15" in diametre . Certainly there are some exceptions ( I've seen some gorgeous scale representations here with big wheels / low-pro tyres on Muscle cars , and I truly like them ) , but those exceptions are few and far between .
Like I've said before ; I admire Foose's work . As an artist and a gear head , I sincerely admire Chip's artwork (i.e. , the drawing of the project car which is being built) . I may not like all of his custom touches , but my opinion's of little consequence . Like anyone , Chip , et al. , has to earn a living , and if 33" wheels on P375-35R-33 tyres and multi-tone paint schemes pay those bills , then so be it .
Can't fault the guy for getting paid for building what his customers want
