How to stretch a tire... and how you don't.
First time we had to use fire to make a tire stretch out.
Stretching 195/45R15s on 9Jx15 BBS RMs.
Didn't work at first, but we got there!
As more and more people cry about handling and whatever when it comes to

It's meant to look good in the first place, handling just comes second.
Stretching tires that much will make the handling in fast corners
worse...normal driving you won't notice any difference though.
On my MKIII GTI, I run 195/40s on 9" wide rims for daily use and meetings,
while I run 215/35s on 9" wide rims for track use (see my onboard videos on

little, giving you a more direct steering, while still allowing fast
In combination with harder rubber bushings, more stiff suspension setup and
unbiall top mounts, etc.etc. this results in an almost GoKart like, very
direct handling...sure not the fastest setup, but fast and fun enough for

MR2 WBK : Credit Card Clearance? WAT CLEARANCE?????!!!!!!
While people brag about the credit card fitment...
PS: yes, I do drive the car with that fitment.
So no, it's not just for taking picture/video; I drive it like that.
I can drive with that kind of fitments since the WBK is fiberglass.
On bumps, the WBK flexes and shaved the tires, along with the letterings.
If you have stock metal fender, most likely, it will cut the tires through
and blow the tire.
Next video will show how the letterings are shaved off after running some

DIY: Wrapping Rims in Matte Black Vinyl
I wanted to try a new style for my winter rims, and instead of pinting them
i wrapped them in vinyl, Costs about $10 a rim.
http://www.ebay.ca/itm/321097538225 This short video shows you how to wrap
a rim quickly(sped up 3x), There really is no downfall to doing this, faster and cheaper then painting, the
vinyl only weighs .4 ounces or about 50 grams. and thats spread out
throughout the rim and if you dont like it then just peal it off. If you
want more info or you want to buy some vinyl contact me at
firstname.lastname@example.org Or come contact me at 8thcivic.com please don't send a
message though youtube, I don't come here often.
Check it out on ebay for the full written DIY.
