Extreme wheels

 The recent blog story on the Cayman and wheels reminded me of a Hummer I saw on the street in Stuttgart in 2012. It had what must have been the ultimate in extreme wheels and tyres. This combo would not last a day on our roads here in NSW Australia or quite a few other places. The ride even on smooth German roads must be appalling. I am curious as to who owned it. As it was Stuttgart it could easily have been an automotive stylist-Mercedes or Porsche.
The odd thing is that apart from making a very strong "look at me" statement the wheels look pig ugly and would not look out of place on a horsedrawn wagon. All very odd.
