Size of wheels usually shown to let people know you have money. Or to show how big your wallet is with how big your wheels are. Seen on all different types of vehicles, but primarily old skools. The bigger the wheels, the more money you have. Kind of like how a Mercedes VS a Rolls Royce in a competetion...24's = Mercedes, 26's = Rolls Royce. The larger the rims, the higher in status you are.
26's are in, 24's are so last year. 20's used to be the big thing...now 26's and 28's and even 30's + are being rode on vehicles. 24's are old news everybody has them. Old skools usually require a 7" - 10" + lift kit to fit rims that are 26" plus. Cars with rims as big as 26's usually sit higher than your average truck. And are often referred to as "Sky-Scrapers" because of how high they sit after putting on such large wheels.
