In these times of political correctness it has become quite fashionable to jump on the Green movement's bandwagon. But for folks who are into enjoying customized classic trucks, the notion of maintaining something vintage instead of throwing it away to buy something new is old hat. The quickest and most effective way to improve the appearance of any vehicle- whether it's a car, truck, or motorcycle-is to swap out the wheels and tires with a distinctive style that expresses the individuality of its owner. That said, the fastest way to tell the world that the owner slob who doesn't take pride in himself or anything he owns is to neglect the appearance of his custom wheels and tires. Of course, just like the poor guy who exits the men's room with an undetected stringing wad of toilet paper stuck to his shoe, maybe the slovenly owner hasn't quite learned to train his eye how to appreciate subtle details.

This might not have been the best way to describe a neglectful person- but beyond the obvious cosmetic advantages of maintaining one's custom wheels and tires, there is the preservation factor. Unlike disposable toilet paper, a particular style of custom wheel or tire might not always be available for one to buy.
