s. Sprewells are distinctive in that they have a spinning attachment mounted on them so that the attachment spins even after the vehicle stops, since the attachment has ball bearing
Sprewells are named after Latrell Sprewell, who founded Sprewell Racing, and automotive customization shop. He appeared on MTV with a customized Mercedes-Benz sporting rims by Davin Wheels with the aformentioned attachment. These wheels quickly made his company a mint, becoming extraordinarily popular among the hip hop crowd and ballers everywhere. They can be incredibly expensive. I have heard of some costing upwards of twenty thousand dollars.
