I'd like to see him with my 500 pounds of DJ Equipment!!

Too wide of a tire is no good in the rain.

I'm not too sure about this look. I don't even think it seems safe. It looks like any hard impact would unseat the tire out of the bead easily. Not to mention your wheels are seriously prone to road damage.

But why on earth would you do that if you're going to drive it casually only? Is it only for the sake of looks? I always though changing out your wheels was an upgrade for handling and not looks. To me that looks like a serious downgrade.

Don't get me wrong. I'm not hating. I'm more questioning, but if that's what makes you happy then it's all good.

I'd rather enjoy driving the car than have people look at it.
My 18x8s are pretty flush, and they don't look like they're broken :s

Thread revival here but, just because hellaflush isn't your thing doesn't mean that he's not doing it right. It is a purely visual art. Guarantee that if you were to go to any major car meet, they will have a huge section as would sound enthusiasts, high HP monsters etc. I personally wouldn't do a lot of things to my car, but if they are done right, I have mad respect. Don't hate because it's not your thing.

'93 Rx7 FD3S- 445rwhp 397rwtq Daily Driver__ SOLD!

'06 MazdaSpeed6 GT Black Mica
Mods:Cobb AP (Stage 2+ 93oct B-tuned), MS CAI, Forge BPV v1, Denso ITV-22's, Whiteline RSB, SURE RMM + Dreadnaught, SURE shifter bushings, SU test pipe, BC coilovers.
