      300 mile 225s probably have something to do with it. I'm being stubborn and not stretching the front.

      Moar because this is my first set of real wheels, and I'm amazed that they fit the way they do. I've obviously seen bryangb's car, but I still wasn't sure.




      The benz is owned by one of my good friends Allen, and he basically jumped up and down in pure excitement when he saw my car. Probably half of the pics he took yesterday were just my Audi! Also really love his car

      Why would you not want to stretch the front? Just to make things more difficult later on?

      Yes. I am not a fan of stretch, I didn't want to do it in the rear, but to get the wheels to work for now I threw the 225s on there. I want to go wider tires eventually. Am I being dumb? probably.

      i like the look of just stretch in the rear, though it's gonna suck if you keep popping your fender like that

      One good roll and it should be fine. I think Vegas and I rushed the driver side since I had to drive home and hour to get to work in like 6 hours or something stupid like that.

      I just won't turn left when I reverse, psh. Easy.

      Being that low and not liking stretch doesn't make much sense. If you want to go wider tires lift the car back up...

      Being this low period doesn't make sense. My huge NeedingAnAudi sticker doesn't make sense. Not deciding what to do with my headliner for a year doesn't make sense. But whatever, I've been enjoying myself a whole hell of a lot more these past couple days.

      Well, no, not really.

      You want to be low and run low offset wheels, but do not want to stretch the tires to clear fenders? That's just asking for dented fenders...

      Doesn't really compare to a silly decal on your back window.

      How bad is the rubbing? I wanted to go about as low as you are, but haven't gotten around to rolling the fronts yet... Looks sick - reminds me of my setup.

      Front rubs, but with a roll it wouldn't be too bad. Smaller tires would work better, but I just don't want smaller.

      S4 skirts would look good.

      My next set of wheels (if it ever happens) is gonna be something wide with a decent lip. I wanna keep my VIP inspired theme.

      I'm with you, I'm not a fan of stretch either, but I like being low. I'm sitting at 23.75" GTF though so I'm not really having any problems right now. I don't think I'll go any lower though, and I may bring it back up that 1/4" because I was shooting for 24" when I dropped it again a couple days ago.

      IMO you car looks great.

      I was at 24" when I first put them on, thought it looks sick as hell. Then I measured and discovered it was 24" and not 23". 23" has been my summer height goal since I bought the car 2 years ago.

      Planning on going that low, rolling the fenders should have been done before you placed on your wheels. That's what I did, and I'm not as low as you (more into a clean functional look, than a stretch, poke, etc). I paid $50 per side, but you can find someone to do it for way less if you don't want to do it yourself. Also, car looks really good.

      Uh sir, that's what this post was all about. I did roll the fenders, just did not roll the driver side as much as the passenger fender.

      looks awesome man, but i think you shouldve stretched those tires. the only reason my fenders are wavy and rusting is because of the winter wheels

      Yeah I don't like the wavy fenders. But actually I had a small crease in both fender lips when I bought the car, completely forgot about them. When we rolled the fenders, I realized that they were still there, so I had wavy fenders waaay before I had 18s.

      Oh well, my car was only 3200, and would probably be in the junkyard had I not rescued it.
