Black rubber hubcaps

Black: the new bling!

Huge rims and tiny balck tires are now in. But what next? The cultural augurs at BUNGCO predict chrome will be out, with tire decoration aimed at maximizing magnificent blackness.

To that end: the Black Rubber Hubcap. These caps present the illusion that your entire tire is a solid piece of rubber. No more chrome or ridiculous fake spokes.

Some folks dig the flat black, but most will no doubt customize their flat blacks with colored chalk, in a manner akin to an Indian parade elephant.

       A guy in my neighborhood has a Porsche that is coated in green speckle color pickup truck bedliner.

       I don't think the 'cool' people will decorate theirs with chalk.

       + I like the no-hubcap (black) look. Also, the *little* chrome hubcaps that a lot of police cars have.

       [nuclear_hobo], do you live in Texas? That's a popular vehicle fashion there.

       Semi-baked by a guy here. He has large discs over his wheels match the body color of his vehicle, only the black of the tires shows. If he had them painted black instead they'd give the same visual style as this idea.

       a "gravity car", [BJS]? what's a gravity car? (cool looking though. not much leg room...)
k_sra, Sep 18 2007
  

       A "gravity car" is a vehicle which is powered by the force of gravity (like going down a hill).   

       I have an idea that might be better! Make the hubcaps (and tires) out of colored rubber!!!   

       I think carbon fiber wheels or hubcaps might be "in" in the near future. Although, rubber is much more affordable.

       "Gravity Car": Fancy term for "Crate-With-Wheels".

       aw, too bad. i was hoping for a floating car, of course. but that would have been an anti-gravity car, i suppose. do they have those yet?
