Wheel/Tire choices
#11
I picked up a set of 15x8 diamond racing wheels last week for 100 and sold for 400 yesterday.

They're the most solid wheels i've ever had and weigh a ton but honestly I couldn't reason myself to keep $400 deep dish steelies.

Personally though, I'm more into crazy stance. The how low can you go type stuff. I'll leave this here just in case you change your mind about the clean look.

Wow, that VW is crazy looking!! I do like some of that stuff, I'm just not feeling it for my cars that's all. I know you get that look with camber and such, but how do the cars like that drive? Everything looks so off center, but do they drive straight?

Basically from what I learned since I've been getting into this stance thing is wider wheels will need more camber. I lean towards 15 and 16 would be my max. I don't worry too much about offset since my wheels are cheap and I don't really care much about deep dish and crap like that. Here's some help my friend has 15x8 -25 offset 165/45/15s in the front. Then in the back he has 15x10 -30 offset runnin 195/45/15 on -17 camber. And uh... from what I've seen not too many people are fan of Rotas. Apparently they're "fake" whatever that's supposed to mean.

195/45/15 on a 15x10............................ and -17 camber ?
Some people just over due this "stance" idea.... to the point where its just straight up stupid.

DTVN, hundred bucks?! That's crazy! I was interested in buying Diamond Steelies too so I went on CL. I saw em with slicks. It was the first time I seen a Diamond steelie without a stretched tire.

Vin, it's probably bagged. And usually super low cars are rarely daily driven. The dude up there with the -17 camber actually daily's his though. There's this guy with a RSX that I know. He lives by these rules of driving his slammed RSX.
1. Pack the car only with girls and never more than one guy.
2. Never go anywhere where you haven't verified the size of the speed bumps (He broke this rule as you can see in the picture below) Took 3 people to lift his car off the bump.

Paigow, He likes it. End of story.

I like my set up. Still functional as tire contact patch is on the ground like it should.

Some say to go lower.. but with mine, its either run more camber for the look and rub, or stay with a functional normal factory camber and have a small poke. If roads around here were smooth, I could go lower. But theres too much road construction and my F&F T1's still have some give to them.

Heres mine. 16x8 +25 with 205/40

Why not make a control arm that's threaded so you can adjust the camber back to stock and still go as low as you want with what ever wheels you want. I know a shop that does that for the trucks he bags so when it lays frame the front wheels don't sit in like that...he called it half ass'n it.

A better alternative is to buy front and rear camber kits.

this..

I will say, I have both to do what needed to be done to mine.

Stay away from cheap ones. Blox, the cheaper S2's, ebayand bWR. Some good ones are the better S2's, Buddy club, or HardRace

So then I can use wheels that are +25 even though our stock wheels are +45? When I am looking for wheels what offset range do I need to be looking at if all I want to do is go up a size or 2 (15-16)? I am not looking to have the wheels stick out etc, all I want to do is keep it the way it looks now, just a little bigger rim and a 1.25-1.5 inch drop. Would it be safe to assume I should stick with a wheel width of 6.5-7 or 7.5 at max?
