Lowriders are a community of Mexican-American people from LA who are centered around a type of customized car that contain pinstripes, murals and customized wheels, which are primarily Dayton wire wheels.

The 1950s were a prosperous time for lowriders as automakers were making cars that fit the scene but this culture slowly took a dive until the 1980s.

As lowriders re-gained popularity in the 1980s, it was the forefront of hip hop music videos and aesthetics. But because of gangster rappers and gang members abusing lowriders as a status, civilian lowrider owners often got pulled over and harassed by cops. This led into another dip in the 2000s and 2010s.

Lowrider culture took a dip in the 2010s as the popularity died down once again. But during the early 2020s, lowriders have had a major comeback due the COVID-19 pandemic. Lowriders became more accepted in suburbs as cruising laws in California were lifted in 2022.

DUB Magazine[]

DUB Magazine is an urban automobile magazine that was popular in the 2000s. DUB was heavily inspired by lowriders and donks as people started customizing their cars and trucks with big rims, underglow and spotty chrome.
