Also known as spinners or choppers, these are rims for a car which typically come in 18inch and higher sizes, making them popular for trucks and SUVs. 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 bearings .

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.
