    car rims that dont move....need some help...

    anybody seen those rims yet that stay totally still even when the car is moving?? i seen them in the gangsta girl rap video and they look awesome, the car will be driving at whatever speed but the rims dont rotate at all. they gotta be connected to some inner part of the car that doesnt turn with the tire. do any of u guys have any idea what im talking about or possibly have a name???

    yea, i saw something like that on 8 mile... it looked like spinnners, but he locked the spinner portion of the rim up and it just stayed in a fixed position...

    Are these the ones they call spinners? They spin but you can't tell it when the car is moving. If not then I haven't seen the ones your talking about yet.

    Ive seen them, they basically work on the oppisite idea of a spinning rim, the inner part of the rim rotates while the inside stays stationary...

    It's nothign complicated. the outter part of the rim, the part you can see, rests on ball bearings. That way its inertia prevents it from moving. They don't work perfectly, there will be some motion.. especially during fast accelleration or deceleration.

    Hey man the rims you are talking about might be Davins.http://www.davinwheels.com/2003/index.html
    They were the original spinner makers I think. Now they have wheels with a black inside that makes it look like they arent spinning when the spinner part is not spinning. The site can explain better than I can.
