Tire Stretching.

I know a lot of you hate it, but i happen to love it. I've been looking through the "Stance" pages and couldn't find a website to help you guys out, and i remembered one! tyrestretch.com its an awesome website and give you specs about wheel, tire brand, everything. So if you wanna stretch your tires, check it out.

Re: Tire Stretching.

Between the fact a stanced car cannot be controled during a single tire blowout, and people driving on unusable sidewall, you need a third reason? Driving at 22mph on a 45mph zone because of rough road raping your underside is just plain silly...

Actually go right ahead, as someone who's been there, everone should learn this lesson firsthand.

Re: Tire Stretching.

Tire stretching is not dangerous as long as it is not over done. By overdone I mean trying to stretch a 195 on a 10" wide wheel. Thousands of people run stretched tires on a daily basis with no problems. Hell drifters run stretched tires with no problems. It being unsafe is a myth.

This. I've been running stretched tires(205/40 on a 9, mild stretch) for two years now on my DD and have had zero issues, just check pressure regularly. Obviously you would have a better ride/handling with a "normal" tire but stretched tires aren't nearly as bad as people might think.

Re: Tire Stretching.

It's not about stretch, the side wall is load bearing only to distribute the weight each tire carries. If you are curious, when drivers see an torn up semi truck tire on the side of the road, it unraveled due to loss of meat holding the tread to the sidewall. No amount of tire pressure checking will stop that. Those tires hold +8,000 lbs each under dynamic loading.

I would not jeopardize suing a tire company for making bad tires and destroying my car, by misusing the tire according to the recommended instructions, and tire guides. Yes, you can file a joint suit, but by yourself? You'd get laughed out of the law firm.

So when i see a $80,000 AMG rocking a $1800 stretched stance, i laugh because you truly see where that persons priorites are.

Re: Tire Stretching.

How many proven instances or accidents (due to properly stretched tires and not negative camber) have any of you saying that it is unsafe saw or heard of?

Plenty of people start Prelude projects that end up abandoned in garages and they are still a part of this forum. Doesn't mean they are real enthusiasts.

Re: Tire Stretching.

Everyone has their own style, and opinions. But I think it's stupid no matter how mildly stretched they are....... Show me the fact you have a masters degree in tires, and then maybe I'll consider the fact you call it safe, cost worthy, etc.

just remember that you took this conversation to a personal place, so if that's really how you wanna go about things, just let me know.

I actually wrench on preludes more than most people on this site.
I also attend prelude meets, weather my car goes or not.
I don't go to ricer shows like import alliance.
I also do not spend all of my time taking pictures of trends.

Who has been absentee from this forum for well over the last year?? Not I. I've been here helping the people that need help.

Being an Prelude enthusiast is more than just owning and driving a prelude.


-Yes I think tire stretching is a fad.
-Yes I hope it goes away.
-I'm sorry if you don't feel the same because the majority of the cars in your picture catalog are stanced.
-I think it's a dumb idea to take a car that handles well do do / \ to it

TIRES: What You need to know

Fellas! C'mon doing / \ to your car isn't thread-war worthy.
While I do not like deliberate extreme cases, if you make a 205 diameter tire fit a 17" rim , and the specs are met and the tires stretched, I have no argument there.

If I can sneek a pinky between the rim lip and the tire wall, you've gone overboard

Though I do kind of like the look of it, I just don't get how that could be safe. Your car literally runs on tires, why have some that barely work

Nuff said
The same can be said about all of you guys that are claiming it is unsafe. None of you have shown any proven evidence that stretched tires are indeed unsafe. Most people will point fingers at stretched tires being a problem when a problem actually arose from incorrect tire pressure, extreme negative camber, or just a really crappy alignment.

See here, countless testimonies from real people that have been running stretched setups for years that have had zero problems. http://www.stanceworks.com/forums/sh...ad.php?t=11804

I actually wrench on preludes more than most people on this site.
I also attend prelude meets, weather my car goes or not.
I don't go to ricer shows like import alliance. IA has only become a ricer show within the last two years, which is why I stopped going.
I also do not spend all of my time taking pictures of trends. Trends? How so? The bulk of what I take pictures of is drift and racing events. I do some trendy stuff, but its money in my pocket so why not?

Who has been absentee from this forum for well over the last year?? Not I. I've been here helping the people that need help. I'll admit it, I've not been around much lately. I had lost interest in this site and I've been focusing on other non-prelude related things lately.

Being an Prelude enthusiast is more than just owning and driving a prelude.


-Yes I think tire stretching is a fad.
-Yes I hope it goes away.
-I'm sorry if you don't feel the same because the majority of the cars in your picture catalog are stanced. The majority of cars on my website are actually drift and race cars, not stanced out show queens.
-I think it's a dumb idea to take a car that handles well do do / \ to it

Hit a sore spot didn't I? I was just kidding, you reply with a smart ass answer as did I. See that little winky face? That means its all in good fun.

Re: Tire Stretching.

Why not just have solid rubber (airless) tires made?

If there's enough demand somebody will do it.
Demand +Supply = $
