i would expect failure either from the bead unseating or bands in the sidewall breaking. thats kinda the point of the bands, to hold the rubber together...

this whole 'preoperties or rubber' argument seems pretty pointless considering theres much more than that to a tire.
Unfortunately there isn't anyone to my knowledge that would be able to engage in those mathematics out of the box. Hence why I'm taking it piece by piece. Understanding FBD's, application of appropriate formula, etc, before getting into something like this:

This doesn't really have any bearing on anyone's soul except in the negative.

Dude, holy thread resurrection......

But I've learned that people that don't like guns, tend to like stretched tires.

Which makes perfect sense. They are sacrificing safety either way. lol

Wow, this guy is should NOT be on this website.
he wants to get rid of his Rotary,..


what an idiot!
he probably wouldn't even try to rebuild it,
he'd try to stick a V8 in there!!
Wooow. He should be thinking 20B,
not V8.

So, if you run a stretch because your car is underpowered....

Why are you running too wide of a wheel int he first place?

A heavier wheel is only going to amplify your "underpowered" problems.


Stretch tires is a complete "looks" thing. There is no real performance aspect. If you are underpowered, then you would want lighter smaller wheels, and then you would end up with the same size tire that you would with a stretch. So, in reality, you are doing it for looks. Underpowered argument is easily and forever proven wrong.


Being a dumbass that doesn't know how to budget is another explanation. "Oh shit bro, I want wider wheels, I guess I better go spend all my money on those ultra cool 10 inch wide wheels, cause they look mad-jdm-overnighted-tyte! Yo! Oh shit, I dont have enough power to rotate the wheels, let alone put tires on them... better stretch some shitty ass narrow tires on there and say its for performance. No one will ever know!"

Stretch is dumb. Unless you have the fucking balls to admit you do it for looks, it is dumb. THERE IS NO REAL PERFORMANCE REASON TO GO WITH STRETCHED TIRES. spend your money right and buy the right sized wheel/tire combo for your power levels and drifting abilities.

Besides, drifting is the SLOW way around the track. ;-)

^ stiffer sidewalls, something most street tires lack. because no one on a budget drifts on 140TW tires that actually do have stiff sidewalls.

im not a drifter (despite my sig). but with a shitty tire, stretching makes a huge difference. good tire, not really any difference at all.

Well i guess this is where i need to be on this issue. Ive read thru this thread now, and all i see is the same stuff. it doesnt hurt my feelings any that people here dont like how my "wheels fit" or how my "tires dont fit". since ive had my wheels/fenders done, i get like 3 thumbs up a day. from all different kinds of people. so, i must be doing something right. yea i have to swerve pot holes? i dont care, its about a passion. you guys who dont like this have your style, and we have ours. so be it. its how cars and the car scene is always gonna be. so....feel free to rag on my car if you'd like. it wont be the first time ive heard it lol

You're welcome to do whatever you want with your car...
...just as long as you don't hurt anyone.

My beef is the dumbasses who claim it's better for performance to run a hippari stretch.
If you're building your car for style and getting thumbs up, then that's your choice.
I like to build my cars for performance - not to impress others.

That's it in a nutshell.

Nope, I don't claim to out perform anyone. I just like style, and cleanliness. And my car isn't all beat up and crapped out. And I made sure of it when I was doing this to the car

If it's your style, then you're welcome to do whatever you want with it.
It's your car.
I don't have a problem with that.
Enjoy your ride.
