Budget Bling

On the way in to the office today, I saw either (1) an example of over-reaching or (2) marvelous commentary— perhaps both.

By now, you’ve probably seen wheel spinners (as the term is currently used, though that’s also been the name of things like this and that), and they’ve probably been huge, shiny chrome wheels with a spinning add-on component on a huge SUV. At least, that’s the way I’ve always seen them.

This morning, on a Nissan Quest minivan, I saw spinning wheel covers. No extra large diameter, since they were covering stock wheels, and not particularly shiny. I didn’t see any other custom or aftermarket parts on the vehicle. Imagine the last wheel covers on this page with a significant layer of brake dust on the Quest.
