Your Guide To The World’s Most Hated Car Culture: Donks

What is this huge old car with giant wheels and a Spongebob paint job? That's what we call a donk, the most hated kind of car in the world right now. Why do people hate them so much? Allow me to explain.

What's a donk?

A donk is any car on ridiculously huge wheels.

That's all it takes to be a donk? Big wheels?

Well, donks are usually big, old American cars, and they often have flashy, tongue-in-cheek paint schemes, but yeah, all it takes to be a donk is big wheels.

How come I've never seen one before?

If no one has ever filmed a rap video in your neighborhood, you probably won't see a donk around. They're popular in the South and, predominantly, amongst African Americans.

What's their deal? Why the big wheels?

It's like jewelry for your car. Back in the ‘90s if you wanted to brag about how much money you're making you could get 20 inch wheels, those are dubs. They'd be chrome, or they'd have spinners. Then you could brag about having 22s, then 24s, 26s, and on to a brief flirtation with 40s. Things have pretty much leveled out at 30 inch rims by now, though.

So it's just a way to show off?

Pretty much.

But why are they so tall? That looks dumb.

Some of these wheels are so big that you have to jack up the body of the car so the wheels fit.

Isn't that dangerous or something?


Probably not. These cars are just cruisers. It's not like they're going around racetracks or anything. On the other hand, actually, this thing is definitely not safe to drive around in.

Uh, right. These things still look stupid to me.


Well, they're not any less dumb than those Volkswagens made into lowriders, or those huge, 12 MPG SUVs that soccer moms think they need a just to drive to the mall. Anyway, donks have a sense of humor.

Oh yeah, what's up with the Spongebob stuff?

This was a trend a few years ago to get the weirdest paint job you could on your car. It all went together with the zeitgeist in the whole culture at the time. Remember, this is when kids were wearing Blue's Clues backpacks and rapping about going stupid. It wasn't supposed to be taken seriously.

So if they're not supposed to be taken seriously, why do people hate them?

Other than casual racism?

Other than casual racism.


Well, people get butthurt when guys who build donks cut up cars that are otherwise cool. For the past two or three years, Camaros have been seriously popular with guys making donks because they're a cool car in the first place, and because they fit 30' rims pretty well. Anyway, Camaro fanbois hate to see one of their ‘performance cars' turned into a big, tall cruiser. Here's a good example right here.

Do you like donks?

Yeah, I love ‘em.

Even the ones with the wheels that don't look like they're moving?

Oh yeah, those things are sweet. You call that ‘skating.' It's not good for anything but showing off while pulling out of McDonald's, but who cares.

Seriously?

Yeah, I like any weird kind of car.

Dude, you're weird.

I know.

I still don't like donks.

It's okay, they're going out of fashion anyway and in a few years nobody will drive them anymore.

Okay, so where can I go to laugh at really sh-tty donks while they're still around?

Go to

 DonkSnob.com. It's the best website ever. There's even a donk there with a toilet in it.

A toilet?

Yeah, check it out.

HAHAHA no way!

I know, right? Donks are the best.

Calling any car with big rims a Donk is equivalent to calling any GM car made in the 60's a damn shoe box Chevy

A Donk is a 71-76 Chevy Caprice/Impala, fu*k what ya heard...

Certain groups of people go crazy when you don't restore your old school back to the way it was give or take a few engine suspension and wheel mods. But you should see how many people get heart broken when I say Im turning my Regal into a Lowrider.

Agreed, Donk has more to do with a old big body chevy car with massive rims on it.

I will say this, my sister BF has a new camaro SS vert and he put 30's and on it and I cant stand it. I find it to be ugly, should have spent that 4k on performance mods, but thats me.

I'll also as somebody else said, he only does 40 on the city and avoids potholes like the plague.

30's on a camaro ss It defeats the purpose of having a fu*kin camaro. It's your car & you do what the fu*k you want to do. But I cant understand when n*ggaz get muscle & performace cars old school or new & put non performance rims & tires on that bi*ch. Paint job & custom interior, digi dash, aint mad at I'd put some new technology ect in a ol school whip. But I'd keep some rally tires on or some good rubber on that bi*ch. In other words I'd turn it into a hotrod instead of a donk.

There's a body shop in Henderson NC that's got a donk that looks like this. Every time I'm in Henderson, I drive past the thing like

I don't care what classifies a 'real' donk. I just call them cars with big goofy rims, and keep it moving. Cats just out there wanting to be seen. It ain't even that serious, especially when someone is out there repping Air Heads candy with their sh*t. lol
