Hey guys I need some pics of some awesomely stretched tires. THe domestic crew that I know and am part of there is a little bit of discussion about stretching and I need to show them some realy stretched ones. there was one pic but it was a crappy MK4 and they were only like one tire size too small for the rim. I want to show them some like the 165's that I think were on 8's?? Let me see em guys!!

NOBODY?? I can't believe that in this forum no one has pics of stretched tires. I saw a ton when I was on here all the time when I had my GTI.

no spacers. the wheels are stock steel wheels widened to 8 inches, but done the old school way with a band instead of a new shell. all of the widening was done in the front. so it's stock back spacing for those wheels. no, eight inches won't really fit in there, but that's what baseball bats and stretched tires are for.
