Bumper extensions? And what are you trying to tuck, the stock wheels?

ok, so everyone is clear.

i made this thread so i could illustrate my aspiration to lower my car enough to tuck the tires just under the fenders all the way around. sorry that i didnt exactly make that clear lol.

im getting a deal on some megan racing street coilovers, so when i put them on, im going to go max low and work my way up from that point.

But you purchased a Toyota, not a Volkswagen?

Also, I'm not following your logic. You wanting to tuck the wheels and bumper extensions is predicated on having the stock rims. Until you get new ones. Which I'm taking literally as you will only tuck the stock rims but not new ones in the future. If that's the case, wouldn't it make more sense to just get new wheels? Are bumper "extensions" permanent? It would just suck to do work just to have silly stock rims when you intend to get better ones. I know I'd personally just do a modest drop and leave the rims alone until I got what I wanted.

To each his own though, if that's what you want go for it. I've never seen tucked rims on an All-trac. - Oh wait. I forgot I own a fifth gen.

oh boy lol

when i say bumper extensions, i mean the fender quarter pieces that go right below the side markers. not something aftermarket, the ones that come from the factory, that make the bumper look like that fit all the way around.

and as for the rims, for the time being i will run the stock rims, just because i wont have any serious issues with rubbing if the fenders fit around the rims and tires. with bigger rims with a lower offset, there will be need to roll/pull the fender possible even flar them, and if it gets bad enough i will radius them to get the extra clearance.

when i do get different rims, i will get them to fit properly with a camber kit, and modifying the control arms and tie rods for extra turning radius, as well as more camber. when i do get bigger rims(16x9.5 hopefully), i want them to be able to sit flush with the fenders, not tucked. the only reason i want to tuck the stock rims, is because they have such a high offset, that it would be ludicrous to try and correct the sunkeness of the rims.

lol to everybody.

Not everyone aspires to have all out performance, not a bad thing. Cars go through phases sometimes. Having a rare car that is inspired by current trends will definitely get attention on the street and in the parking lot. Maybe thats what he wants? He is a fellow trac member deviating from the norm, nothing wrong with that.

Ian, ill help you get the wheels tucked but it will def ride harsh and handle like shit and with the roads here in chicago its going to be dangerously low...

im fully aware of the consequences that come with having a low low car. hence why i want skid plates. no oil pan messes for me! :) thanks for the back up eugene lol

and yeah, thats pretty much what im doing. making it something deviates from the norm. id rather have my car, my way. i do like many of the builds on this board, but the way many people mod, just isnt for me, thats all. i want something that people can look at and be intrigued, or be haters. either way. im getting promo, and thats what matters lol.

I feel like your implying that I said, or that someone else said there was something wrong with that - which is not the case in any of these posts. I just want that to be clear.
