it looks as well.
Here is a 255 federal tire on a 10.5 rim:
Here is a Toyo 245 on a 9.5 rim:
Maybe what he is looking for is the wheel/tire sidewall moved out to elimate wheel well gap?
I might be nuts but stretched versus non-stretched doesn't seem to do much anything for the look of the car per se.
At least not compared to a nice flush look for the tire to fender with no gap and/or lowered to remove excessive height gap.
Are spacers just the easy (cheap) way of going for the off-set wheels look?
I like the OEM wheels enough to not want to go looking and shopping (even if I had the extra cash in hand) but I do like the effect of having the even look of wheels/tires to edge of fenders.
