imo that doesnt look right, the wheel isnt sitting in the middle of the arch and makes it look odd.

Thats becuase the car has air-suspension and has been lowered for show. It wouldn't be like that for day-2-day driving

They will be 215/35 R18, Stretched on to the alloy. Very popular mod done in Europe and by the Westside Cartel (UK).

Please will someone explain what is meant by "Stretched on to the alloy".

That implies to me that wheel / tyre combination is not totally compatible.

Yeah paul, it just means the the tyre is not wide enough for the rim, making the rim look wider than it is.

The wheel ends up sticking out more - or so it looks that way.

Personally I think it looks pants, but hey it's all about being different!

maybe i'm getting old!!
