Talking What makes it "Rice"?

So, past "Fart Cans" & "Wings" sized for aircraft, what makes it "Rice" to you?

One look & ?

Just a ?

Or anything

Where does "Cool" turn to "Rice"?

I'll throw one out for argument,

"Stretched" tires are Cool, when stretched so the beads don't seat?

RICE!

When a car modification is intended to imitate an actual performance mod, but doesn't actually improve performance.

Alright, Micah seen it. I agree with the stretched tires, that just looks bad.

I will add goofy 22"'s, spinners, etc.

I just typed a ridiculously long post, then I sipped some scotch, and decided it wasn't worth posting... because it occurred to me...

What is rice?

I don't know... Looking at the auto fails thread, I've seen some decent looking cars in there that I'd totally rock. Others that look like they were created on an acid trip. All of them seem to have landed into a ces pool now called the rice thread...

So... if I paint a hood black on a mustang it's cool, but if I do it to a civic it's rice? Some civics I prefer the black hood depending on what generation it is.

Am I missing something? Someone care to fill me in?

A bov and/or a turbo timer.

I typed "BOV" in caps and some infernal machine that doesn't know what an acronym is changes it to lower case.

In my eyes, rice is turning a car into something it is never meant to be.
