Right, the chunkier body and larger wheel wells allow second gens to get away with wheels one size larger. It also makes it harder for them to pull off the 16's that look so at home on first gens.

These are pretty astounding. I didn't really like the one piece wheels all that much, but these are pretty spectacular.

These are the concave models so they sacrifice lip for concavity. I'm pretty sure they will be making flat face ones with more lip.
