The Worst Automotive Fads To Hit The Streets

Crazy Camber

The extreme camber, stretched tires and one-millimeter of ground clearance falls under the car modification trend called “Stance.” For most cars, a slightly lower ride-height and a nice set of wheels makes the car better, both visually and in the handling department, but when taken to the extreme, it generally ruins everything.

Atrocious ride quality, rapid tire wear, rapid suspension wear, inability to negotiate speed bumps or small stones, decreased braking effectiveness, weird handling… do I need to keep going? “Low and slow” can be cool, but when your car can’t function as a car, it’s pretty tragic.
