Shaq's Ram 1500

Shaquille O'Neal has a very serious car collection and it looks like he has added the new Ram to his stable. Its much more mild than most of his highly customized rides, but it is wearing some large 26' custom wheels. The wheels are Forgiato Concavos, which have been paint matched to the body trucks exterior. Rumor is the set costs around $10k.

Not what I was expecting considering how many vehicles have to be custom modded for Shaq. I actually like that he didnt go overboard with the customization and I think this proves that the truck looks fantastic right out of the factory.

I think those tires probably reduced road comfort by quite a bit, even though they do look sharp. I'm guessing that Shaq has a tough time finding vehicles that he can comfortably fit inside.

Not a fan of the whole Dub styling with those Forgiato wheels, most wheels that brand sells are ugly. Thanks to Rap/Hip Hop music they became popular but I don't see enthusiasts rocking them.

Certainly not anyone who plans on actually using their pickup as a work vehicle, but we know that audience is shrinking. Going to oversized wheels like this is a quick way to remove all of the road comfort that FCA has spent so much time developing.

I doubt that someone like Shaq cares all too much about the practicality of a given vehicle. Odds are he wont ever be using the Ram as an actual work truck, so his mods are going to be more focused on style.

Its just weird seeing it on a board like this where 90% of owners would never go near doing such mods. Boards where it is popular have no substance.

People aren't buying pickups solely as workhorses anymore and aftermarket modifications have become increasingly popular. There isn't a whole lot of concern when it comes to simple changes like wheel and exhaust setups.

Even from just an aesthetics point of view those wheels are horrible. Seen 3 piece Forgi's fitted to some Sierra's and Silverado's that looked much better.
