When I drive my car in town, people often look at my car and smile. They sometimes point at it and smile while showing their white teeth. I didn't know the reason for some time after I got the car but I know it now. It is because of the special wheels on my car. They are actually not wheels but wheel covers over the original wheels. They are made of lightweight plastic so that they can easily spin when the tires rotate. They keep spinning for seconds initially even after I stop the car at traffic signals. Of course they were installed not by me but by the ex-owner of the car. I didn't want to stand out by having such childish equipment and thought about taking them off, but I didn't do that because normal wheels are dirty and it is still better with the caps.
