Those offsets seem relatively aggressive, and the 19" wheels will make it more difficult. I have 18x9 and 18x10 with +24 and +22 offsets, respectively. The fronts I have 245/40/18 and the rears are...

If you're going to post a picture of a car with extreme styling, you should expect to get extreme opinions. I chose not the beat around the bush in my original post.

Hahaha. I totally forgot about those threads. Thanks for reminding me.

Back on topic... I don't think jibby was referring to VIP style cars as looking like Mexican sedans running 'outie' wheels....

Cheap shot at an owner, anybody?


BTW, just because something is VIP Style doesn't make it good. It's all subjective. I'm seeing this VIP style thing become more like JDM was. Just because it's...

Quoted for truth. I said this before, but if I remember correctly, it was turned around on me as being racist against Mexican low riders.

You're right. Expressing a strong opinion is ignorant and lacks class.

I'll rephrase it. I don't care for the wheel fitment used on the Nissan. At all.

Why would you want that? Say goodbye to your paint on the rocker panels, I'd imagine.

Then I guess we'll just have to agree to disagree here :)

Let me ask though; what is the point of stretching tires, besides getting a wider wheel on the car? Does it offer better proformance?...

Maybe you should read my post more carefully. I specified that I was not talking about the lowrider style cars, on Dayton type wire wheels.

And I've only seen this style on cheap cars in cheap...

When I say lower income, I don't mean 'Mexican'. I mean, quite literally, lower income. I didn't necessarily want to say "poor people". Not race-specific.

That's not the look I'm talking about...

It doesn't really matter what my mom likes, LOL. It was just an example. I'm sure the same thing would apply to most people on the road though. BTW, that was one of the pics I showed here ;)

You're right, we all have our own opinions. However, it's getting to the point where the people running the (IMO) tacky looking wheel styles are criticizing those who aren't. That's totally off the...

I dunno. You guys must have a different meaning for the word "flush". To me, it means that the wheel/tire would be even with the fender. You guys running super low offsets with stretched tires look...

I see now. Thanks for clarifying. So, on a 9" wide wheel with a +45mm offset at all four corners, will it be a problem?

Obviously it can be remedied with spacers, but I'm really hesitant about...
