    What are the kids doing these days to their cars?

    I'm not 40 yet, but I guess I'm *old enough* to not understand WTF the kids are doing to their cars now-a-days.

    What is this thing (specifically the off camber wheels haha).What are the kids doing these days to their cars?-what_is_this_car.jpg

    That ones pretty conservative compared to what I've seen. Now because of this thread I'm driven [pun intended] to start snapping photos to post up.

    I will get some pics too. I like the ones where the rims are worth about 4x what the car is worth.

    These guys see dedicated road race cars with 3-5 degrees of neg. camber and think they can run that on the street. Tires wear out in a thousand miles.

    But it looks bad . . . Not! They pay good money to make it uglier. My 87 year old father made a comment recently to me. He laughed and said "why does a loud muffler and wheels give these kids the false feeling that their car is faster?"

    To the OP, they call it "stance" and yes those who do this to vehicles are idiots. It looks terrible, provides Zero performance benefits and ruins the ride.

    Putting some NOS, Monster, and NISMO stickers and that should be good for 15hp at least y0!!!

    There is a guy at work that has a 350z badged as a Fairlady Z, which is fine except the front bumper is falling off and the whole car just looks beat up.

    Every generation has their own thing. I'm quite sure there were people that made fun of the mods done to the cars of every generation. And at some point way back, guys on horses, laughing at guys in cars. I've seen rides that were done right, that looked good, and I've seen the trash like posted above. Stance doesn't always mean ridiculous camber, or super low either, it's simply how the vehicle sits.

    First time they hit a set of railroad tracks, they have to do 2 mph to prevent blowing the whole thing apart.

    Yep and yep. The stance thing is how it sits from front to back and not how the wheels are offset or off camber. I'm willing to take a stance on this.

    In the 70s before I could drive, the thing was to jack up the back end of the car about 4 inches, and stuff huge tires mounted on cragar SS mags. They stuck out way past the fenderwells, but it didn't matter 'cause the car was jacked-up so high. And it wasn't just musclecars that got the treatment, but Monte Carlos, Cutlasses, got it too.

    When me and my friends finally got our Mopar musclecars, we were all about factory wheels and none of that jacked-up stuff.

    So anyway, there is always a group that goes for style over substance, and then there is a grey area on some mods.

    And occasionally you'd see someone who went full dragster, with skinny, skinny front wheels/tires. Can't imagine how poorly those handled!

    Seems like "dubs" are on their way out. Can't imagine those rubber band tires on huge af rims were good for anything...

    Yes, the word stance can have that meaning... however the guys who do the off camber thing call that specifically "stance". There is a whole thing called "Stance Culture" that revolves around that ridiculous style.

    Sweet, glad I know what is called now.

    Honestly, people driving Prius's probably think the same of my lifted Wrangler....."dumb truck, big tires, what a waste of gas"
    Yep, but it's fun and goes anywhere.

    I was more curious than anything, don't live in a big city so just starting to see these around here.

    Half the BMW X5s I see have 5 degrees of camber in the rear wheels.

    The other thing I see in the burbs out here in TX is lifted 4wds with 22s and low profile tires. So they have a truck jacked up sky-high, but can barely roll a curb with it, much less go off-road. It goes without saying that the wheels must have an offset such that a minimum of 3" of rubber sticks outside of the body of the vehicle.

    Have you seen the four door JK Jeeps rolling this style around Texas too. It's the new and improved Mall Crawler fad I guess. Plus, it seems you need lots of LED light bars for the mall too.

    Well they're calling it wrong. It's a slang term for several things in the so called "tuner" car world. The true meaning of the word in the car world is how the car sits front to back. By adding different mods as off set wheels and or off camber axles doesn't make using the word stance legit in the actual words meaning. It's a generic slang term thrown around in today's tuner world.

    That's because stock wheels have gotten huge and now come in 19" or 20" from the factory. I remember when cars had 15"s as standard size and you "hooked up" your car with some sweet 17"s LOL

    I can agree with that.
    I used to street race a long time ago.
    You can't set up a street racer like a track car, it simply doesn't work.
    Streets are too rough, with dips etc. A person needs more travel, sidewall, shocks that are sporty but not stiff etc.
    Anti Roll bars shouldn't be so stiff on a street racer either.
    Too many fall for the ad hype.

    What you see all the time in that crowd, is high performance shocks set up so stiff, they pack up.

    In the UK you see very few modified cars these days. Insurance companies have nailed the kids to the floor. They so much as put loud seat-covers on and they'll get crucified.

    To be honest, it's not a bad thing. They were a menace. Idiot kids still pollute the roads but there are far fewer of them.

    Aside: Friend of mine climbed out of the car window and into the car next to us one night, at sixty MPH...

    Not only that, but the bigger the rim, the lower the profile. Wife just bought a new Escape, and THANK GOD it has the 17" wheels. 17's are just bearable, the ones we test drove with 19's were harsh. I like the sportier ride of the new Escape for what it is, but I don't want to feel beat up after a four hour ride.

    I put the tallest tires I could fit in my '03 Escape a few years back, and it was super comfortable during our 3200 mile trip in 2016. Aired down, it handled loose rock service roads in the Rockies well, but I'm shooting for a LOT more tire in my next vehicle.

    My wife's new Escape can never go down those roads. There's no room for a taller tire, and I'm not going to hunt for six months to find a handful of 15" rims that will fit but make her cringe when she looks at them. At best the next set of tires will have a softer sidewall. Yet another SUV that has fallen victim to the mall crawler mantra.
    I will suffer no butt-hurt fools!

    It's like that scene in American Graffiti when they tied the cop car to something.

    Back in high school in the late 80s/early 90s mini trucks were pretty popular, actually anything lowered was popular. We'd get Jimmy'z stickers and cut along the bottom and over the wheels and slam the wagon all the way down!

    We are at about 8500', so maybe the thin air makes a wing bigger than the car a necessity.

    I put 22s on my 80s vw golf GTi when I was a wee chap, had to lower it 60mm, change the camber etc just to stop it looking like a jacked up monster truck. Cost a small fortune, the handling wasn't ruined but the acceleration and my back was. And I had to drive on roads without speed bumps.

    Got plenty of poontang tho
