tires do play an important role in "slamming" because you obviously wanna adjust your coilovers or bags, whatevers enough to tuck the tire, cover the wheel, whatever. trust me one number up or down on the sidewall or width makes the greatest difference. if you have stock wheels that have like a 60 series sidewall then cut down to a 45 series or something of that nature, given the width of the tire stays the same. you're dropping your car down about an inch each time you drop a size from 55, 50, to 45 because of the skinnier tire. so if you had a stock car that had 60 sidewall tires then dropped to a 50, you can bet the front of the car will also be 2 inch lower cause its sitting on less rubber. the skinnier the sidewall and the more you try and close that gap with your suspension the more slammed its going to look and be, vs a fatter tire and a drop to match to cover that tire gap, your frame aint gonna get closer to the ground as the dude with the skinnier tires.

I'm definitely no expert, and I'm new to this concept but that seems pretty dangerous.

Don't understand having to suffer through the horrible ride and having to worry about bottoming out just for appearance irl.

 

And sorry to OP for taking this way OT.

lol so much more horrible things happen from lowering your car, I'm lucky enough to have not busted my oilpan, but i've already ripped CV boots, crippled exhaust manifolds, blown up front lips, and ripped my exhaust piping hangers out. all thats in the past and its def not worth it.

Retard question: how do you post pics? I always slam my cars and take pics but have never worked out how to post them. what code do i need from the social club website?

Exactly why I don't go too low IRL. My Aristo already scrapes the exhaust on driveways and speed bumps and its only just below stock height.

Bags would be a much more practical option, but it's more of an investment than just changing springs etc.

Damn the sh*tty roads here!

This kid man, I just can't stand stupid motherf*ckers who think they know everything.

 

My brother slammed his car and f*cked his front tires because he had 20 inch rims with a 17 rims tires, he had to change the rims to 17 inch and he didn't keep f*cking his tires afterward.

 

Also, I can get a Honda and take JDM parts and install them on it, and I live in f*cking Miami and buy the car in Miami and it can be considered a JDM, because it has "Japanese Domestic MARKET" parts.

 

Bitch, get the f*ck out of here.

It is impossible to get a 17" tire on a 20" rim dumbass.

Also, your definition if JDM is incorrect.

I question his opinion on that also because the car wouldnt be considered JDM it would just have JDM parts. I could get a ford focus and put in a japanese air freshner and that would be JDM. but depending on the year of your honda it could actually be made in Japan and therefore be a factory "JDM" car. My car was made in Suzuka, Japan but its sold in the US and the steering wheel is on the left.

Some quick pics I just took of a few of my slammed rides.

Yeah it's not JDM but this car is my absolute favourite to slam and slide in. I have yet to find a car that has less traction than this when its slammed...if you love drifting you should definitely try it out! My schwartzer is generally either metallic red or blue, but can also be seen in variations of white/black.

I had a futo originally which was all black with the wide body but ended up getting rid of it (no Idea why) and I've only recently got one back, which I've kept pretty simple. I like the no spoiler and roof lip combo personally.

I don't use my TT Stratum as much as I should. For some reason both my drivers and passenger windows are always broken, even in my garage? I like the R32 front end and I've always loved wagons.

I alternate between black on black and white with black rims. 

 

Hope I didn't post too many pics, I tried to keep it short! 

Love the cars you guys have been posting.

On the subject of tuners and the Mid Night Club, I took a quick snap of the rear of my custom Elegy, complete with the aforementioned sticker:

For comparison, here's the real-life equivalent:

Such a cool little detail - it's the sort of thing that makes me really dig this game, simply from a 'car nut' perspective. Likewise, I just had to get the 'Wangan Master' rims on one of my rides - ended up using it on my Honda Civic-stand-in, the Sultan RS (looks close enough to the 7th-gen sedan version to make a decent substitute).

So I just bought a carbonizzare and I can't slam it. I've tried two different sets of rims and I tried with each level of armor up to 80%.

I can lower one corner twice, but after another 10 shots the car is on fire. I'm so confused!? No other car has done this, do I need 100% armor?

what's JDM?

It stands for Japanese Domestic Market, its hard to explain but look up JDM cars on google images, like honda or nissan, its like that. 

 

Also a fantastic way to get laughed at in your local apartment complex. Too many people down here love to "slam" their car, without realizing what that means when you live in an area with speed bumps freaking everywhere. Also, ruining their own suspensions. 

 

 

You don't need to worry about speed bumps if you go over them by turning left or right, also it would only ruin your suspension if the tires or rims are not the correct one for a slammed car.. Meaning you have to modify the suspension along while slamming for the rims and tires, so they don't get f*cked up.

 

It only happens to amateur.

 

You "slam" a car BY MODIFYING THE SUSPENSION.

You put in lowered springs or coilovers to lower the car.

 

Speaking of amateur.

 

 

LOL @ JDM

 

None of these cars are JDM only actual Japanese cars are JDM.

 

Nissan, Honda, Toyota are from Japan.

 

Most car posted in here are Japanese..

 

lol....

JDM by definition means Japanese Domestic Market, in other words means a car MADE IN JAPAN FROM JAPAN. And if you didn't know, most Japanese cars are made in US, Canada, Mexico....

 

 

No f*cking sh*t you modify the suspension to drop a car, you imbecile. What I'm saying is making sure that you have the right tires and rims when slamming.

 

JDM means modifying a car with Japanese parts. Most JDM cars are Japanese because JDM are mostly meant for Japanese cars. It doesn't matter where the f*ck they are made, it matters that they are Japanese.

 

Imbecile f*ck, I swear the people in this forum man.

 

I can tell you're really mature. LOL

You quoted your own stupidity. 

 

You're wrong on both points.

 

JDM cars are from Japan. That's sort of what the acronym implies....

 

Rims and tires have no effect on slamming because

a) if you are slamming a car you obviously don't care about or are ignorant of the effects on ride/handling/detriments to other aspects of the car

b) they are fine as long as they fit in the wheel arches. 

 

Have a nice day

:)

 

You don't need to adjust tire profiles and rim's if you're just lowering it. You only need to adjust rims and the tires if you are adding some camber to your car.

Well that's the funny thing about GTA, it's a VIDEO GAME ergo I can do things in it I would never do IRL! Crazy concept huh??

I'll even go a little further than that, honestly I don't think a car that's been lowered enough to get rid of wheel gap is bad looking. Does that mean I should automatically approve of scraping your car on the pavement with a retarded amount of camber? No not at all!
