Cool pics Pacman.  For my taste, if one is going to roll on 20+, they need to be tucked SoCal lowrider style.  I still enjoy looking at those who choose otherwise though.   8)

The guys w/ 22's and 24's on their cars usually have to drive real slow over driveway entrances and speed bumps because their wheels are rubbing on the fenderwells and suspension- FAIL.

I dont know about that.... I build that 70 chevelle and we had 24's on it at first and they never rubbed and we could drive 70 down the highway great. Now yea if someone takes a car thats POS and puts wheels on it yea stuff going to rub I see that all the time down here.. But when you hotchkis under something it makes it ride so much better! :D

To each his own- your car, you run what you want on it. The wagon wheel look just isn't my thing- I see it down here in socal all the time and for me it's played out.

Ruined those Chevelles, those rims look stupid, may as well put a fast and furious wing on it as well, to each his own.

Nice pics Pacman.  Like mine, these all sit a little too high for my taste.  Hoping I can bring mine down another inch, but it likely won't happen for a while as my money needs to go toward other things on the car right now.

I apologize for them being Camaros, but they're 2G with 'em tucked.  I dream of tucking the wheels on my T/A like this.
