Like any show car, they look good in their own way - and it's obvious a lot of effort went into building them.

As a driving enthusiast, my personal preference is for 'functional" looks that match a particular driving environment - whether it be street, track, or trail!

A bit of "stretch" is nice for street & track, when functioning to stiffen up the handling response of tires a bit taller than the ones pictured. I'm sorry, but when they get THAT low they start to remind me more of the industrial tires on a fork lift. Solid rubber for the street, despite the lack of worry over punctures, was deemed too rough a ride long ago when Firestone's pneumatic tires swept the market....

Cheers!
