Why? Is either really more or less useless than the other? I guess I figure if they own their own vehicle it's their business but it's stupid either way.

I don't know him either. I took the same guess as you did. Stacks are hillbilly and lifting a caprice is ghetto.

I agree with muddinman. Not a racial thing at all, instead safety. A 36 inch rim probably weighs 200+ pounds. I have yet to see one of those cars with any kind of upgraded brakes. There is no way that a stock braking system could handle that much rotating mass. I do not even believe that there is a braking system out there that could lock up a wheel/tire that large. The cars performance in every way is compromised beyond a safe level to accommodate those wheels. It will not be able to safely steer or stop. That is assuming that the car was even lifted properly, which it probably was not

Stacks on the other hand are just a dumb waste of bed space and a non-creative way to end your exhaust. Sure, they lower EGT's I guess but they in no way compromise the safety of the vehicle. Just give you some insight to the person that is behind the wheel

Not any different that someone one running around on 42" tires, don't think over ever seen a lifted truck with bigger than stock brakes.

Very true and sad to say. I have slightly upgraded the brakes. I wish that with more people doing 17 inch wheels, they would get some 13 inch rotors on the front

There is a big difference. Most trucks running 42's have one tons with a braking system meant to stop a truck and trailer and usually come stock with a set of 245-285 tires. Most 3/4-1ton trucks have dual piston calipers up front. A simple pad upgrade is plenty enough for a set of 42's on h1's. Most metric body and g-body gm cars came factory with 14" wheels and very small tires. That being said they didn't need an extreme duty braking system and the system it is equipped with is no where near enough for the cars running 30" wheels. Also most of these "Donk" cars have extremely unsafe lifts. (not saying there isn't a lot of hack ass shit on 42's)
Our local bone yard has a lot of ex-Donk cars and I have personally seen more than one with a broken spindle from having to large of wheels and tires.
