And that is what this is, a hobby. Telling me I have bad taste because I have new wheels and tires and my car is not lowered is just ignorant. So when my car is mildy lowered and not slammed to the ground because I have to drive in the winter with snow on the road and do want to be a snowplow, do I have bad taste? I personally do not like black wheels because when they are in motion they look like black steelies but I do not say people with black wheels are in bad taste. This tread is for people proud to show off their rides and not for belittling peoples decisions.
While I do agree with this, I do believe that if a person gets new wheels then sometime down the line, they should upgrade the suspension. Doesn't have to be slammed, just has to at least eliminate wheel-gap. I also believe that you should get wheels before suspension, just so you can see just how far you can drop it.
With that said, there are some people who get wheels, bodykits, custom paint, etc without ever thinking about the suspension or they say that the roads are to bad for a drop. Bad roads are everywhere.
Now to keep this thread on topic:
