Having big wheels protruding from the sides of a car at weird angles is the opposite of what looks good:


      E-Types are beautiful, but on modern cars, the hip dysplasia stance isn't too sexy. And neither are aftermarket wheels on stock suspensions 9/10 times.

      some things deserve more respect.

      it was my first time using the eastwood, rented out a shop for the day and went to town. took my sweet ass time. sweat my ass off and ended up very happy. no cracked paint, no kinks and no rub.


      sorry if you're an old fart, your problem will fix itself soon enough and my generation will run this bitch. truth.
      Bwahahahahaha..... AAAAaahahahahahahahahahahahaha.....

      What the hell are you talking about? When your generation "runs this bitch" (whatever the hell that is supposed to mean) I really hope I'll be dead and gone because I wouldn't want to listen to your nonsensical babble anyway. Work on sounding somewhat intelligent, it'll get you a lot further than chest pumping and posturing.

      Also, learn to take criticism. You made the choice to post pics of your car in here knowing full well what people think of that style. It's not a friendly environment for that look. Then you start testiculating (that's when you wave your arms about whilst talking bollocks) that you're going to run the world or something. You're not making any sense, nor are you capitalizing letters at the beginning of a sentence... the rest of us learned to do that in 1st grade.

      If you want to get smoke blown up your arse about your car, go to stanceworks where you know you'll be in an environment of like-minded individuals. Alternatively, post your car and display a bit of humility. Be aware that not everyone will like it, but if you act like a grown up you'll automatically get more positive responses. Don't come in here with an attitude that you're the greatest fabricator on earth just because you rolled some fenders - guys have been doing that for eons. You ain't the first.

      i like that a lot. if i put new tires on there it would look a lot better but the wheels came with the falkens. i plan on using these wheels mainly for drift events. drifting on friday. 20's up front, then i can burn off front and rear stockers and the 20" rears.

      Really, guy? You have an E-Type and you classified it under "some old British iron?" I was expecting some old MGs or something. Is there a thread dedicated to that car?

      Looks more like you're the broke b!tch since you can't even afford tires that fit your wheels.
