That's a retarded stretch, man. A little stretch isn't a big deal but that is pretty significant. Also, I feel terrible for your fenders.

lol didnt i say that i didnt rub?

plus you seem to be okay with 235/40/18 on a 10" wheel, which is a bigger stretch, but no love for mojo?

I think I just lucked out because he likes gt-c's. However, I'm fairly certain he doesn't like my stretch. Got more pics yet?

BTW, I'm GSM6 on 6crew... just to clear things up.

This. That's why I didn't buy his wheels (because I'd have to pull a ridiculous stretch).


I read that they don't rub....but to be honest...that's because you haven't driven the car hard enough. There isn't a chance in hell that your fender would still look like that after hitting a bump in a tight corner.


I'm still suuuuuuper mixed on this whole look/stance. You just caught me on a bad day.

I don't understand the point. Why not get the wheels in a size that fit the tires correctly? Doesn't look safe to me. Why have a setup that limits you driving ability? Yes you say you don't plan to do spirited driving, but the problem is more that you can't do spirited driving if you have to.

Ever park it next to any curbs? You must be super good at it. I like a big piece of rubber hanging over my rims because I'm a parking-ratard.
Plus it doesn't look so stupid like this.
