TXT me what your new whip is going to be or die.



Btw, fitment on this MKII is dope. Tucking in the front- poking in the rear. DOPE.

well done sir, i think you should go for it.

what i will tell you is that most of the members on most of the forums i visit are fascinated with "larger wheels" but really the medium size wheels with ultra low offsets hold the bigger lips and more concaved face. (if no lips) cant wait to see your set up sir!

example:

20x11 +20 offset AME shallenx wheel 4.3 inch rear lip
20x10 -8 offset same wheel 6 inch lip.

History of Streched Tires

I was curious so a quick search later, I found my answer. This maybe stating the obvious to everyone on this thread or perhaps interesting to some.

http://driftjapan.com/blog/car-parts...i-style-tires/

Nice to know. I guess once you realize the reason why you can begin to appreciate the look. For one, I would rather oversize the tire to prevent curb rash

I would like to hear your feedback.

Awesome thread
