Since starting my blog I have noticed this a lot lately.

I am not a purist so I don't really care from that stand point. It seems some vette wheels work visually better than others.

Plus, seandub's car used to look better with the (several) previous green wheels.

Lol, I'm on the Stance Works boards so that I post as little of the same content as them as possible.

I dig Sdub's car on the BBS's as well. The vette wheels look weird and not just cause they are Vette wheels.

take the plate off or center it....get rid of the ****ing green hat or bandana on the dash, get rid of the euro plate in the window and that car would look soooo much better...

the above of course is with the bbs wheels.

Those cars look awkward and silly, IMO. Since when do people put wheels on their cars to make them look uglier than stock?:confused:

I'm pretty certain this trend came from the Audi/VW scene... Guys have been putting Benz wheels on their Golfs, etc etc for years... My ex (and still a good friend of mine...) has an Aviator TT with Bentley rims... Thing looks amazing *th-up*

I like that black e36 shlammed on the vette wheels although, Is he not rubbing like a champ? Honestly I havent seen any e36 with vette wheels in person, but depending on the style, it could look good,

The white one for example, looks insane with the green rs's, but with the vette wheels to me it looks like shit! Clean up the stickers/garbage on the dash and that car is killer!

VW did start that as someone said, and im surprised bimmers didnt start this earlier, especially that both bolt patterns are similar (5x120) so its only spacers invovled!!!

(correct me if im wrong)......

With GM wheels being in the range of +50up offsets, its need huge spacer for them to fit right, but if u do it the other way around, u can actually fit some nice rubbers for a track car with those wheels and they are faily light too.

Fe9L
11-18-2009, 11:36 PM
so then those e36s arent using regular spacers?

ZiMMie
11-18-2009, 11:46 PM

no is not regular spacers.
Its more like an adapter since it will be 30MM or more.

You will also need wobble bolts and lastly bolt hole with enough clearance (which is why u end up getting an adaptor spec'd out for vette fitment}.

+1 on this self proclaimed shlammed proclimation! until your tucking tire, orrrr are poking with a cunt hair spliting the gap between the tire and the fender, you aint shlammed, and a euro plate isnt going to change shit!
