yeah I'm not into the whole VIP stance thing, but I do think it looks good if that's what you're going for.

they certainly don't drive very well like that. I don't think that Z is on bags either, I think it's just dumped on coil-overs air-bags are more of a VW thing... most dumped Nissan guys are straight coil-over.

it's basically the new-school version of lowriders... like I said, not my thing but I do think it looks good.

BTW the court case is over, he won but only got $5500 out of it.... IIRC his repairs were around $8K and it was another 3-4K to repaint and install the new kit once the repairs were done.

you will NEVER see my 240 with alignment like that.

I do have a tough decision to make though, the wheels I bought were mounted with stretched tires from the previous owner... do I put them on as is or keep driving on the OEM wheels until I can afford properly sized tires for them?

Personally I would wait for the tyres. Tyres are not meant to be stretched regardless of what anyone says.

Some of the drift boys run stretches but they are on a track. So if the tyres fail in anyway theres no huge danger.

How much of a stretch is it?

it's not that much of a stretch but the lip of the rim definitely sticks out past the rubber :-/

I mean normally I'd just stack wheels in my garage but I put cardboard between each wheel because they'd be metal/metal contact otherwise.
