My 03' Mustang GT was lowered about 2" F/R and had to be mindfull of steep parking lot entrances, banked railroad tracks etc. When your mufflers bang on concrete it's not a warm and fuzzy feeling
That's fine then. My car had the Stealth exhaust and that middle resonator scraped off everything I hit. Sometimes I liked it, people would snap their neck to look at my car, then they get to look at my car, haha.

These is something to be said about "stancing" a car.. if you take the time and do it right it looks amazing... i remember zinger posting how many fenders he has ruined... it is a way of life... not the biggest fan of stretch and pole and massive negative camber but a slammed focus looks great

Too wide of a rim, with too narrow a tire is a look I don't prefer.

Probably because I have associated it with lowriders for the last 25 yrs.

Wobbs car looks good. Zingers car looks good. Srgt smasher is lost in lala land. If you do something like wobs car it will look good. I don't mind stretch and poke but there is an amount that just looks silly. Even when the tires are tucked and the camber is set. I like seeing a low car with minimal camber and stretch.

This is the ONLY car in the past two picture posts that can even be considered stanced.



Most of the rest are just low, the celica is atrocious and is no closer to stanced than a focus at stock ride height.
