It gives new meaning to the words "wheel bearing"

When I saw this, I did a double-take, then a triple-take. Was this a real product, or was it my imagination? Then I realized that I live in Portland, where many people's bumper stickers proudly proclaim, "KEEP PORTLAND WEIRD". So yeah, at that point, it didn't surprise me.

If I ever had to drive a car with bear-shaped wheel covers, I would probably have to scrape them along the curb for twenty-five solid minutes every day.

Update: By the way, I forgot to mention that I saw this car in the parking lot of an auto parts store, where I was actually buying wheel bearings!

I have also seen these up here, and always woundered why anyone would put these on their car?

So wrong! Were there are bunch of beanie baby bears in the front dash and back window? And maybe a cheesy license plate cover? That would fit.
