    I was thinking of getting a set of RBP wheels but I have found a couple of forums talking about the chrome pitting really bad and that RBP won't do anything about it. The wheels are like $400 a pop so I really can't afford to waste that type of money. Any info would be appreciated.

    I wouldnt suggest their rims, simply for the price, your not getting anything special for that cost.

    RBP is lame. i have a couple buddies with fullsize trucks and they all have RBP grilles and such (of course XD Rockstar rims) and theyre not the best quality from what I saw. defenintly not worth that price

    everything they make is over priced, and the center caps of the rockstar rims are super ugly, but underneath they are a really nice 5 spoke rim

    Bro Rim:: Any rim/wheel that has intrinsic gayness, that is it cannot exist without being gay, and transferring that gayness to the vehicle operator. The rim attempts to spice up the car buy adding completely non-functional pieces to a rim with designs like a star or a penis [which should be released any time soon]. The rims are often black, accompanied by some diamonds or chrome in an attempt to show off their bling, but realistically only exposes the operator's short comings in size. These rims often go well with flashy grilles that cost $700+ from places like RPB.

    Wait a second, I like to think the terms that I use are current and cutting edge but this reference to the use of the term bro is new to me.

    So if I don't like something I would say something along the lines, " Those wheels are totally bro." or "I really don't bro those wheels." Is this correct?

    the first one was close, if you really want to use this term in the way the guys on here do, then you should say "those rims are "too bro"."

    For anyone that may need to add more of a Bro-ish look to their wheels I will be offering my services. For only $15 a wheel, I shall use a bedazzler to spice up your wheels.
