      About an hour ago I saw one of the ugliest car "projects" ever. It was driving by so I didn't get any pictures, sorry. But I definately got a good enough look.

      A brand new (still with temp plates) H2.........

      With 23" rims and low profile tires!!!!!

      What the hell was that person smoking? I can kinda understand any other vehicle on that setup, but an H2? The suspension wasn't lowered, it was just on comparatively small tires. I can even understand 26" rims and semi-low profile tires to keep the stance right, but this just looked all wrong! Basically the thing was on 28" tires, when it comes with 35s stock.

      Can I say enough about how crappy this looked?

      I know just what you mean... Kind of like those people who will take a late 90s Cavalier and put 14" 100 spoke rims on it with low profile tires and wheel spacers so the things stick out about 6" from the body of the car. It really makes you wonder what was going through their heads when they decided that would be cool to do.

      Hell, I've seen "low-rider" Tahoes, what's the difference?

      But the H2 body lends itself to off-roading, I can imagine it was just flat ugly being lowered like that.

      But Hey.........Variety is the Spice of Life!

      Big rims on an H2 is a bit much but don't knock lowered Tahoes.

      I've seen WAY too many H2's already. At home this weekend I must have seen 5 or 6 which for a new truck like the H2 is a bit much.

      a tahoe on 23s is one thing.... but an h2? that is just dumb.... lowered is ok.... but stock height with tiny tires is dumb..... like a ford festiva on 17s... come on :rolleyes:

      No offense Alec, but a lot of people who i haved showed your car to says the same thing about your car. I mention A supercharged explorer they say cool. I mention a supercharged explorer on what 31's 33's (i am not sure which kind you have) and they ask if your a moron or not. Really pop open you hood and park next to the H2 with 23's on it...... I am not bashing your car, I like your car. All I am saying... your one to talk.

      UMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM:rolleyes:

      What does that even mean? Trucks on 33s should have limited power? Superchargers are a street thing only? Are your friends morons also?

      this is just getting stupid

      I'm not saying that I don't like all trucks with rims and lowering. I'm just saying this one looked really dumb. Even if it would've had a bit of suspension drop if would've looked a lot better.

      And I'm sorry for liking power AND wheeling :rolleyes:

      I wasnt saying that you were saying that. I do not know how you got that out of that.

      Usally people when they get their car supercharged.. its for racing. just like when people buy an H2, its for off roading..... Its like a car having a split personality. All I was saying is your one to talk. Again I like what you have done with your car, no offense.

      I agree with some of you guys. I love street and offroad trucks. Explorers with some 35, body lift and suspension lift is nice. Explorers with DUBS, dropped a few inches is nice too.

      But if these guys have $$ on hummers, range rovers, etc, they should really how nice boards like this one. Gotta have the "coolness" on doing things right. Gives them some ideas :p

      Oh yeah I have a picture of a yellow Hummer H1(not H2) with 24s...sad but true...if you guys want to see them, please somebody give me the email addy and you can host them.

      Also got a nice lift Ford Excursion picture lifted with DUBS...yup 20s! The tires are some huge(am guessing 35-40s) mud boggers...so I assume these are custom tires. anybody wanna host this?

      Man, sittin at work saturday, I about flipped... I saw a new H2 filled with college guys... interesting part was the H@ was lifted probably 10" at least and rollin on 33s. Its crazy, living this close to Houston, we have a few Hummer dealers around us, and there are H2's showing up everywhere! Seems like every man who owns his own company has bought one for promotional purposes, or at least thats what he told his wife...
      But man, that H2 with 33s was cool... even though it was funny looking... it was cool...

      just guessing here- but they must have been WAY bigger than 33's. H2 has 35's on it stock...
