Check out these celebrities and their wild rims.
Expensive rims are getting bigger and more ridiculous than ever. While the latest in huge rollers is an epic 40-inch wheel, no tire manufacturer has even bothered to make a product to cover the thing. The biggest wheel and tire combo currently available is a 34-inch made by Lexani. The company has been making high-buck wheels for years, and its Asanti line comes encrusted with diamonds. Final asking price? A cool $1 million. While nothing comes close to touching Lexani’s huge 34-inch pieces, plenty of celebrities still cruise around on big wheels. Check out DriverSide’s list of the top 5 celebrities with ridiculous rims.
Marky Mark is a certified car nut, and while he spent his misguided youth pilfering his neighbors’ cars, he can afford some seriously nice metal. The former leader of the Funky Bunch chauffeurs his daughters around in a menacing-looking Mercedes-Benz S550 with steam-roller sized rims.
Magic Johnson has his own mega-wheel ride – a custom “Magic” DUB Edition 2006 Lincoln Mark LT. The sinister looking lux truck rolls around on 24-inch TIS 06 wheels. Ironically, the wheels are probably worth more than the Mark LT these days.
The queen of, well, we’re not quite sure what she’s queen of, bought herself a Bentley Continental GT as a Christmas present last year. Evidently, the car wasn’t quite flashy enough for the tabloid diva, so she had the car disgraced, er, modified by the crew at West Coast Customs. The result is a Barbie-pink creation. Believe it or not, the massive Asanti rims are the least ridiculous part of this car.
Olympic gold medalist and all-around basketball guru, Dwayne Wade, knows a thing or two about ridiculous rims. The Miami Heat guard owns a Cadillac Escalade EXT with color-matched 26-inch GFG Trento 7 wheels. For those of you who are counting, that’s nearly one inch for every year Wade’s been alive.
Four-time NBA Championship winner Shaquille O’Neal cruises around on some of the biggest wheels of any celebrity out there. His 2003 Hummer H2 has 26-inch Asanti AF127 wheels with the Superman “S” engraved on each of the five spokes. Meanwhile, his 2004 Rolls Royce Phantom cruises around on more modest 24-inch Superman wheels by BBH Luxury Wheels. We're not sure if Clark Kent would be ashamed or proud.
