RimTuck.com is all about database of wheel fitments for various vehicles. It’s purpose is to show how different wheel fitment may look, and also aid those in deciding what wheel specifications to choose from for their vehicle.
The site contains aggressive fitments which require excessive camber adjustments, body modifications, stretched tires and any other means to create their specific stance… Let’s check some of set-ups out!

Stance is so important that it can either make or break a car’s tasteful appearance whether they got the nicest paint job, nicest body kit, and/or even the nicest wheels. All that is nothing without a good stance. This is a very subjective topic, but I think we can all agree that if the wheels don’t fit right, it just ruins the car’s body flow.
The stance of the car simply consists of two things to work… dump and flush (no relations to toilets.) Lowering a car alone already improves the appearance of the car. It gets rid of that nasty wheel gap that should be left to off-road, dirt vehicles. Flushing the wheels is when you bring the wheels out as far as possible without having the top tire treads past the fender lip. This flushed look helps the body panels to continue the flow down to the wheels. It makes the car look more “whole”.
Of course, stance is a simple concept, but to achieve a good one, it involves quite a bit of homework. Lowering suspensions, camber, wheel size/offset, tire size/stretch, fender roll/pull, and other factors are needed for this to work, but this is another story as it can become very involving. There may also be negative effects such as premature wear of the tire, suspension components, and hazardous driving conditions depending on how extreme the stance is.
“Any car can be made to look real good. All it takes is a good stance.”
