Looks good, but what the prob with more stretch? What about camber to get them to tuck a bit more?
They are DY Design Champions (Dai Yoshihara Discount Tire drifter) and they are one piece.
Champion is their signature wheel style emulating the wheels used to power Dai to his 2011 drifting championship. And these "fakes" look more real than most. It really looks like a two piece wheel because of the small gap between the face and the lip. But you can reach in behind and feel face welded and molded to the barrel. You can see what I mean in this picture
And the tires are 225/40/18 on 18x10 wheels and the brand is Sailun. I know, cheap, but the tires I got with these wheels had extreme toe/camber wear. 1" of inside of each wheel was destroyed. Rest of the wheels were untouch/like new. They even had nipples still on the flat part of the outside. So not much of my buds tires were touching the rd.
As for more stretch, I went bagged over static because I'm "not about that life" and didn't want to replace tires and bumpers and axels and other static problem sheit over time. And I didn't like the way the 215/40 that came with the setup looked either. So I won't stretch(too much) because I know too many people who have had their tires debead. And camber would create wear I don't want at normal driving height. It already naturally cambers a bit the lower it goes, so all I need is a little pull and roll and I should be good. I may opt to have a little more camber all around but nothing too extreme.
