The term Donk used to refer to solely to a highly customized Mid-70s Chevrolet Impala and then any American-made full-size car from that period. But nowadays, any car on large custom wheels falls into the “Donk” category.
As the popularity of Donks continue to explode, car enthusiasts everywhere are turning to do-it-yourself solutions to Donk their rides. And with the availability of full Donk kits, it is easier than ever to transform your ride into a legitimate Donk. Here’s how:
Know what you want
Custom Donk kits are custom designed for you. Lifts range anywhere from 3 inch above factory default to several feet. The higher the rise, the bigger the rims, typically.
Determine what size rims you want. In the Donk world, the bigger the better. Cars raised high over the manufacturer’s standard cruising height are sometimes called “skyscrapers.” This is typically done for show purposes only. If you plan to use your Donk as a daily driver, it may be smart to consider a lower option.
Purchase a Donk Kit from a trusted supplier
