Does anyone on here like this whole "culture"? Because I find it completely ridiculous. Taking a perfectly good looking car, slam it to the ground, and put wheels that are way too wide for the tires. Not to mention the absurd negative camber they use. Some look good. Others need to be set on fire. Discuss.

I can't stand it. It has to be the dumbest car fad out right now. I can't wait till it dies, it can take the cars with it.

Same here. I don't see the point. It doesn't make the car look or perform any better.

I used to have a vw and would cruise with guys that would do this. i can understand lowering it a bit to kill off some wheel gap. but cambering out the wheels just looks stupid. it's on par with bro trucks as far as stupidity goes.

I like the look within reason, like any automotive fad some people go over board.

That poor, poor e30
The camber thing has enraged me since the first time I saw it. Looks absolutely ridiculous IMO, same with the super wide wheels.

Slammin on the other hand, is slammin!

The one thing I really don't understand is the guys who DD them and don't use airbags. I saw a video of a guy with a 350Z and it took him like and hour to get out of his garage because the ledge was too steep.

Yeah i knew dudes who weren't bagged, and would go through oil pans like nobody's business.

Same thing buddy.

It's a fad that will go away.

If you think it's the most ridiculous fad, apparently you've never seen one of these:

Difference is, lifting with the larger tires allows a Jeep to go further off road. A "stanced" car, especially one without airbags, can't go very far at all.

yeah limiting your car so that you need wood ramps to get into your driveway seems a bit different than adding offroad tires to a jeep.
