I never said anything about it taking over. I just said that its a very big scene. I can show you numerous pics of cars from the west coast. What is this "press" you speak of? You can lose the whole "ghetto" thing too because not everyone that drives a car with big rims is from the "ghetto" or "the hood."
I had a air bagged silverado in high school. I think donks are ghetto in the way they lift them, not because I think anyone with big rims on their old ass chevy is from the hood. Hacked suspension = ghetto.
I won't deny they are over here. By press I mean the fact that random shops around here will build one to get into a magazine or for show purposes.
