Slammed cars


The car arena is full of variety.  From the plain jane every day stock car to the motor swapped 2,000 horsepower race car, its safe to say there is something out there for everyone.  One such choice is called stance.

The stance movement doesn’t just revolve around the way a car sits at rest.  It encompasses the entirety of the vehicle in question.  Some of the factors are paint scheme, functionality, wheel choice, tire sizing, body flow, and the quality of craftsmanship.  As this automotive moment drives forward and continues to grow more and more examples are popping up everywhere.  Some are works of art when they are completed whereas others will scar your mind forever.  “To each his own” is something I tell myself quite frequently when it comes to other’s taste in cars but sometimes I just can’t help myself.

Here are a few examples of stance cars.  Take a look at the entire car and not just the wheel choice.  You be the judge and jury for yourself.

  Honda Civic Hatchback


Here is an example of stance done correctly.  The tires have been stretched quite a bit more than most people would like to see but sexy is sexy.  A level ride and wheels that aren’t too big.  Clean attention to detail is the biggest draw to this beautiful Japanese car.


Subaru WRX Wagon


 Here’s an example of a stance fail.  Sure the adage goes “To each his own” but somethings just can’t be ignored.  The first thing that comes to attention are the hideous five spoke wheels that have been spray painted to match the color of the car.  The wheels are also way too big for the fender arches.  They just don’t flow like a wheel rounded stance car.  Some might like this Subi but I;ll have to pass.


 Mercedes Sedan


This Mercedes Benz was never going anywhere fast even in its original form and there’s nothing wrong with that.  This example appeals to the low rider side of the stance world.  Clean body lines with the right wheel and tire choice would make this German car stand out in a crowd for sure.  I call this one a win.


 Subaru BRZ


 This is an example of hellaflush.  The large amount of negative camber paired with stretched tires are appealing to some in the automotive world.  The Rocket Bunny body kit on this Subaru BRZ help the car out some but the wheel and tire choice aren’t very practical for the real world.  I’m on the fence with the BRZ.


 Liberty Walk Ferrari


 This Ferrari boasts one of the finest examples of stance in the world.  Functional ride height, killer body lines enhanced by Liberty Walk, and a set of shoes that couldn’t be a better fit.  Everything on the car ties together seamlessly.  Its hard to top the exotic body lines and factory stance from Ferrari but the owner of this 458 Italia has a vision and brought it to life.  Beautiful!


Mazda RX-7 FD


 The Mazda RX-7 FD doesn’t need any help looking sexy.  However if you add the perfect combination of wheels and tires and then pair it with the correct combination of suspension you will get Victoria’s Secret Super Model Sexy status.  This white rotary machine has been transformed into a work of art.  Functionality and form have been retained making this one perfect example of stance.
