You guys can't even agree on what constitutes "stanced" based on the discussions of the pictures that have been posted -- so, from someone who is on the outside of this trend, can one of you explain exactly what stanced is??

The last two foci show the difference. One is low on relatively narrow wheel and fat tires. The red one is lower with wider wheels and narrow tires. There is more to it than that though, the wheels on the red focus normally wouldn't fit without careful calculations, specific tire sizes, and dialed in camber to match the width and offset.

What else would you like to know?

I'm being 100% serious and not a smartass at all... what constitutes stance? I still don't get what it is that is being done to the car that qualifies it as a "stanced" car. What's the difference between a slammed car and a stanced car? Is the urban dictionary description anywhere approaching accurate? Is there a quantifiable, specific goal? Wheel/tire surfaces as flush with the fenders as possible? Some of these new car trends (it's new HERE, even if it's not new globally) honestly just leave me puzzled. If I were to modify my car's suspension, ride height, wheels, etc. I'd just go for whatever I liked and what I thought looked good to me, not try to force it into the mold of whatever was cool at the moment.

No problem, you've got a good grasp on it.

It is beyond just simply being low, you can be low without having a stanced car but not the other way around.

It's also necessary to have some relatively wide wheels. For instance, it's generally hard to stance a focus on anything narrower than an 8" wheel. In many cases, an 8" wheel wouldn't fit a focus all that well. Some guys run 9" wheels and even 10" wheels on a focus.

What qualifies the car as stanced? Generally that's up to opinion really.

I think I speak for many when I say that "clean" is the goal, when you have a car that someone who isn't into stance tell you they like your car then you know you're doing it right.
