Instead of vague abstractions, what about the nitty griity on actual wheels?
Brands, styles, new trends?
Ever see them skateboard style lowered cars and trucks with the low profile
tires jutting from the fenders? Solid rims on motorcycles that almost look
like they belong on a car?
There's a vast aftermarket for custom wheels out there. Does anybody study
this stuff? What's hot and what's not? *That* would be interesting, minor
variations on the wheel theme and what's more apt to be utilitized by
certain subsets of the automobile enthusiast population.
Heck even bicycle rims have variations, spokes versus mags for instance.
