Stance – Explained

9 November 2011 No Comment
Not too long ago I did a write up called: “From a judge’s point of view”. This was some useful tips for all our “show and shine” petrol heads. So, it’s just fair that I do something on Stance. This is to clear the confusion between the two as most petrol heads confuse the one with the other.
Stance is all about rims with a lot of offset, stretched tyres, and negative camber. To achieve that “perfect” stance-look, you must have suspension modifications that will allow your car to sit closer to the tarmac. Also, the right rim size and offset. This can be tricky as a wheel can make or break that look. The wheel must have a lot of offset finishing and steelies are the new trend nowadays. The lip can either be high polished, colour coded or covered with stickers. Tyres are just as important as the rim and must be able to stretch. Choose the correct size to fit the rim and try to get the lowest sidewall possible to allow the vehicle to be lower with less wheel gap. A negative camber will make the sidewall of the tyre sits as flush as possible with the fender. Camber and stretch allows the vehicle to run wider wheels than normal and tuck directly under the fenders for a super flush fitment.
This style is more common on JDM and Euro-styled look vehicles.
That includes:
OEM exhausts (Civics will upgrade to CTR: civic type R exhaust)
16inch JDM rims (Brands such as Volk, Rays, Spoon and etc.)
OEM headlight and taillights
Full Coilover systems
Body being standard with add ons like a spoiler
Badges removed and delocked
OEM headlight and taillights
The original lines of the car should be maintained
Full coilover or air suspension
15 inch or smaller rim size, most common now are steelies.
Well, this is just some ideas and tips to create that “go low and slow”- look.
