    Makes em look kinda spiffy for those big parades, huh?
    Yeah.. it's the PARADE version. No plus to whitewalls in real combat.

    You think they have some trucks JUST for parades, and others JUST for combat?

    That's an ingenious plan.

    Wonder who came up with it???

    In Russia, they do paint and such for parades. Perhaps even put on the special wheels, I would not be surprised.

    It's a big deal over there, the parades, for the military, huge.

    They get ride through cities, show themselves off, such as in Simferopol, Crimea, below

    Russians love that shit. They love their military. It is a big point of their national pride...

    Nice looking wheels are all a part of that.
