fake skirt!

When you get excited by the photos of Justin Bieber's custom Rolls...





Because you can't wait to find out how they engineered that articulating front wheel skirt!

As for the obvious question, “how do the front wheels turn?”, well, West Coast Customs says the front wheels are much thinner than normal, and have been given positive camber.
