WHAT THE? 20-INCH WHITEWALL ALLOY WHEELS

WHITEWALL tyres are one thing, but white wall wheels?

It sounds crazy, but they are real and we checked them out at Meguiar's MotorEx in Sydney over the weekend. The premise is that if you want decent-sized brakes on your big custom cruiser, they can be tricky to fit behind old-school rims.

You then pop a modern thin-sidewall tyre on it and Robert is your mother's brother.
