come on dude.... face it, stance is the rice of 2010+
body kits and wings were 2000+

same thing, different era.... in my opinion, stance is a little less tacky than rice, however when you start adding roof racks as a fashion statement and stuffed animals with "illest" stickers, guess what.... you just riced out your car, "german" style

No. Stancing does NOT improve handling. Stretched tires, stupid camber, and little to no effective suspension travel does not improve handling. It doesn't belong, does not add to performance, and thus by your own definition..... It's rice.

That's what I was saying, the people that take the things to the extreme, ruin it... "Stancing" / Fitting wheels is an art (to the ones who actually know what they're doing).



I can fit about a finger between the fender and tire and it doesn't rub, at least like you'd think it would... ask so lowww & dbworld4k, they've seen the car in person. It has all of the ingredients to be called a "stance car"-- I just don't fvck up my fenders, slam it where it's un-driveable, and do things to the car that draw too much attention to it...

Anyone else notice how 95% of riced out cars have non matching body kits that are all scratched up? Its like they were trying to peel out and ran into a concrete post.

I don't see how you draw that conclusion. I was just letting djnekkon know he was misguided or misinformed, and that by his own definition, stancing is rice.

Maybe you are a God in this site, but you are confused. Stanced doesn't necessarily mean stretched. You can stance your car in many different styles. stretched is just one of them. I stated "stanced cars handle and look better (pick one)". stretching is less Dangerous than is using fake wheels as if they were performance wheels. People doesn't participate on any type of stancework crew or club and want to become the new preachers. Have you worked your susp on a daily basis? cuz I do, and I garantee that if you know what you are doing **** won't happen. lecture yourself...and yes your car is stanced and if you add bbs caps will be rice
