      ...I heard somewhere (here probably) that the whole "stretch" tire thing was because people in Germany were trying to avoid paying higher taxes. They'd put on bigger rims, but the tax was based on the size of the tire, so they would put on one size smaller and pay less tax.

      So I guess people saw it and thought it was "euro" and liked it. To each his own I suppose.

      I am a function over form kind of guy, and there's no way I'd do anything that goofy. Give me all the rubber on the road I am supposed to have please thanks.

      To me, tuners should want to emulate racecars, not low riders.

      That is why it is your opinion.

      Just because you have a wider tire doesn't necessarily mean it will handle better. Likewise, just because someone has a 'stretched' tire doesn't mean it will handle poorly. Big misconception.

      Again, this is an R32, not a Ferrari. Not sure why everyone thinks they are race cars.
