I remember when people used to make fun of Hondas, Acuras, Mitsubishis, or whatever, for having stickers all over them. Now those same people have upped the ante 10-fold....the more I look at that Lexus, the worse it looks. The sideskirts are totally mismatched, the rear wheel and suspension geometry look horrific, and I won't rehash the stickers issue.

yeah, stupid stanced cars, no style whatsoever....

they should take off their spacers, get tires that 'fit', and join the rest of the conservative community...


i mean, just look at these abominations!

Some of those aforementioned cars look great....specifically the P-cars, the WRX, and the blue/gray 4-door E46 . However, I fail to see ANY point what so ever in stretching a 205 tire over a 10" rim. Nor do I see a point in taking a performance oriented car, and putting -6 degrees of camber in the rear.

You getting the point? No matter how many times I say I'm not trying to do this or that, I still said it and many can perceive it the wrong way. So no, you really didn't think much about it in my opinion.

Leave it at hellflush or / thread. I don't care how many retards are calling it mexiflush.
Texas, Cali or Souther Florida, doesn't matter where you live.

Word Mexiflush (yes, I totally agree its st#pid word), but just like the word "rice", it's not any better either. IMO both words can be very offensive if you take it out of context. But most of us accepted "rice" as a form of "mod" (yea I know, ugly mod to some, beautiful to others - to each his own) that said, Mexiflush has nothing to do with ethnicity, rather it's just another word streaming up the forum to describe a car.

Bottom line, the thread is simply to show what is over done (better word to use), vs. a perfect stance, like the pics posted.

There is a difference between flush/aggressive which looks awesome, like the below.


and choosing poorly fitted rims and running stupid camber to try and make them fit. That isnt flush its fail.

stance3.... i'm disappointed in your "comparison"

you posted cars that sit low and they have completely flush wheels... i see no 205's poking out of a 12 inch rim with an offset about ET40 more aggressive than safe

i'm talking about the idiots that ruin their fenders because of the wheels/drop they are running

i hate this car regardless of what race the kid is , the car is wack. i saw it on stanceworks a few months back and blasted the fool. i dont mind the stickers but the poke is so untastefull and execution is horrible.... but i am sure its his first fixed up car so it cant be perfect. my first car was wack too..

i had 3 degrees of neg camber in the back for a while and it destroyed a good set of tires in no time. rear camber should be held to a minimum since it doesnt really help performance.




i dont even understand how this works.
