    I've always wondered that, too. Makes them look kind of creepy. Like scary toys.

    They need fender skirts and spinners. If any of you remember those.

    Back in the day whitewalls here were so common all car tires were made with them. If you wanted tires without it, you had to pay to get the whitewall machined off.
