does anyone seem to have this problem on their gen 3, or is it just me?



this happens even when the tires are filled to the recommended psi, and just fyi: it was about 60*F when i took the picture, so there shouldnt be a big psi drop

That is another reason why you need after market wheels with low pros.

yeah the thinner the side wall the less "flex" it has. when i was looking for tires, i was told that i could go with 215/60/15 for the flatter/smooth side wall.

Sidewall flex is for little boys. Real men keep it stiff.

Low profile FTW.

camber+ sidewall flex+14s=death

Low profile tires, especially summer only tires, have a much stiffer sidewall carcass, which is why they dont flex.

I typically run my tires at ~5 psi above "recommended" pressures.

Some tires have more flex than others.......those pics are too serious though. Nothing to worry about.

My stockies did that. Its normal, the sidewall is huge. My IS rims didn't.

You want IS rims, if you pay for them lol. mine are still sitting the garage.

I needed spacers at the rear to clear the struts.

4cyl need it at the front to clear the calipers. Dunno if you need it in the rear though.

Yeah shipping sucks cock.
