How Low is TOO Low?

Lowered Cars

I always get a kick out of street cars that have been lowered within an inch or two of the tarmac. Sure it looks good, but 9 times out of 10 lowering these things makes them completely undrivable. Road imperfections, potholes, speed bumps and even foul weather are the enemies of a lowered car. Hell, even getting in and out of a driveway can be a hassle. Understand that manufacturers go through great lengths making sure that their cars will perform flawlessly in all sorts of conditions, because in the end, these are street cars. That doesn’t stop the masses though from tinkering. It’s a tough choice… do you go for looks alone or usability?

    A good blend of both. Lowering your car to the point where its undriveable is hardly smart, particularly if it’s your daily driver. Granted, if this was your toy and you only brought it out for show and tell, sure, whatever floats your boat. I’ve never understood the obsession for HUGE rims and a car so low that you can’t get a hersheys wrapper underneath.

    while i agree that lowering untill its undriveable isnt a great idea i really like airrides where you can either have it lowered untill its undrivable or high enough to go over the tallest sleeping policemen. also i agree with james that huge rims isnt that nice i prefer stretched wheels over 16 inch rims.

    I remember seeing a guy with a ridiculously low jetta trying to leave after getting his car fixed. He spent a good 15 minutes scraping and navigating around the uneven parking lot just trying to leave. It was almost comical. In no circumstance is being that low a good idea in my opinion.

    If the rim is level with the fender or lower, I think that’s too low.

    If I can’t drive through a normal parking lot with normal speedbumps, it is too low.

    when you have to set ramps to leave your garage, plan your route before leave, crack your crank case often and your car rides lke shit. It’s too low.
