guy: is there like, a reason for that? like weight or aerodynamics or something? just curious man i ain't seen nothing like this before! it's crazy!

me, losing my patience: brah, you just don't understand! these are racing rims, brah!

i took off before he could further damage my IQ with more of his questions. because clearly two valve stems takes off 30 pounds of weight and streamlines the air flow over the entire car
The terms "rims" and "wheels" are technically not interchangeable, the rim is the "outer edge of a wheel, holding the tire." It makes up the outer circular design of the wheel on which the inside edge of the tire is mounted.

You might want to do a little research before posting and "further damage" anyone elses IQ with yours.
