View Full Version : Custom poked out tires?!

So out of boredom, I took my AWD drifter and unmounted my tires and started dremeling away. At first, I had Dr. Kustoms "rounded" edged tires in mind but that' didn't suit my style (Looks nice non-the less). I went for a more tuner/JDM feel and decided to get that "Poke"/"Tire stretched look.

For those who are unaware of the "poke" look, here's a reference.

And my results:

I realize my pictures don't do the work much justice, neither do the wheels and their offset as well as the body choice, but it's a start.

My current setup with the wheels are 0's all around and all of them are wide. Hoping to get the better "poke"/"stretched" looking with 1 offset or 1.5s with even more camber. We'll see!

Thanks for looking

Not a new trick, but nice job man! I did the same to 1 set of tires, but a minimal job to keep some contact patch on them.

It looks decent, just lower the front more and redo this mod to a set of Wide (11mm) drift tires and it'll be good. :)

Eh, I don't wanna dish out too much for this car. I like it the way it is so far. Btw, this is Peter's old whip. aha
