People tend to develop some basic preferences when they are young, e.g., I still think the Ford GT40 is the coolest looking race car ever built.

But it's just a theory.
I think most just assumed big rim = better tires. Then again, a lot of people whines about tire wear on these sport tires. If you can't pay for it, don't do it.
