Default Why do this to a C4? Poor car.

The wheels look so goofy this far out to the edge of the body, plus the deep dish is ridiculous. Tires too tall, and profile looks horrible. What else can be said?

Can't stand the aftermarket badge. The wheels look cool for about 5 minutes...

If it makes 'em happy!

It's just the wrong size tires and needs to be lowered. The exhaust tips aren't doing anything for me either..

Taller sidewall = better traction at the strip.

It does have the 4x4 look, too. Sits about 5 inches between tires and arches. Like it's been jacked-up. Odd.

Hey, nice 1st post. Welcome to the Forum.


Here's another pic to show off the 4x4 nature of this one.

The wheel spacing looks fine to me. Sidewall height is pretty normal also. Although the tread is a bit narrow for those wheels as the sidewall is angled inward from the wheel.

Here's a picture of my rear tires when they were new, stock tire size:

Lol, I didn't mean anything by it. I haven't been on there in over a month. Also didn't realize that was my first post, been lurking for a long time, finally made an account in July, just never posted apparently. Spent too much time on FB until I did the permanent deletion.

Never noticed the rear wheels are wider than the fronts on this car.

I've seen much much worse tbh. Honestly the little extra sidewall isn't a problem to me. What bothers me the most is that the rear tire needs a larger cross section to match the wheel width. Just my opinion though.

At first I thought someone have chopped another C4 into a dune buggy or something more irreverent.
