When rollin' on 24s just isn't enough, a company by the name of Pimpstar has come up with new rims to take care of the not-enough-bling problem that so many people are having.

Pimpstar rims contain full-color LEDs that you can program using your laptop and a wi-fi connection to show an image of your choice on each rim. You can also pre-program each wheel to alternate between up to 6 images at pre-set time intervals.

What's that? You want to see these in action? Well you happen to be in luck because we've got a video of the Pimpstars in action right here.

Our favorite rim image from the video has to be "Hey Baby, Call Me". I can imagine the mad-dash for the cell phone when a lucky girl happens to see that on your rim.

Since the rims can be "programmed" via wi-fi and assuming they catch on, you know someone will figure out a way to hack them. That would give the term "war-driving" a whole new meaning :)
