Sorry, not used to people offering up exactly what was asked for. :lol: :lol: :lol:


I'd bet that is the most gangster wheel fitment of any FX16 on the planet. 8)

W3RD. It's pretty ridiculous. The whole look is amazing. Never thought an FX16 could look that hard.

Yeah--too much. Leave that to the VW guys.

First pic looks perfect, IMHO.


That set up is for a vDub too haha.

Those vw guys love crazy stretch for some reason

That is so stupid.. especially on a FWD car. :roll:

On a RWD car, now that seems more suitable.

where do you guys get your 195/45/13 tyres from? I've got some steel mazda RX-4 rims which I think are either 5in or 5.5in wide and I don't want 205s on the car as they are too large. A 195 tyre would be near perfect!

Can someone please explain any REAL benefit to tire stretching other than trying to clear your fenders on a lowered car? It seems to me that any advantages of running such a wide wheel are negated by running a small tire (because the contact patch is what matters). I would think that hard cornering would also increase the risk of the bead coming undone and causing rim damage or a crash. I'd like to hear both sides....advantages vs disadvantages. Thank you.


Us drifters to do it because it gives us more feedback for when the rear tires are gonna lose traction.

For the extreme examples, they are just for style points. 8)

So it seems the easiest and cheapest tire i could find for 13's is Sumitumos 205/50R13 so I think that's what I might get. Also searching threw craigslist i found some random steelies with 205/60R13 that i might pick up, I wanna ask the seller to just part the tires tho since that's all i need - http://seattle.craigslist.org/sno/pts/1867182003.html
And they're 13x11" Compomotives. I'll post pics this weekend
