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
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.
