look through Instagram, scroll through a few car pages, today’s style is of, one could say very evident, you’ll see bolted on wide body’s, that is what it, you know, that’s a thing right now, you know, you’ll see the huge wings, that’s a thing right now, and you’ll see some of
the wildest wrap jobs you know what I’m saying, people don’t dab anymore I’m not doing it, but I really wanted to for a quick second, but there’s one thing that seems to be like all other
builds have in common, and that is stance, and when I say stance I mean like excessive double digit camber, it seems to be happening
way more often now than ever before, which
always begs the question on like whether it’s a fad, a trend, or really if it’s ever going to die, now the camber serves like a really very little
functionality other than helping like dudes
run super wide wheels and being able to sit fender to lift, now don’t get me wrong, you
have to appreciate the time and the custom parts needed to achieve these insanely
slanted boy clout points as they would say, but will
the trend actually die out, that’s a pretty good question, by the way I’m Alex dot F I and today we’re gonna be talking about just that on if stance
cars are gonna die out, or if these styles are going
to be around for much longer, don’t forget to subscribe
and if you’re looking for aftermarket wheels,
tires, or suspension be sure to check out Fitment
Industries dot com, boom, sales plug out of the way,
bang, bang, bibbidi, bop, with any trend in the world, that’s exactly, you
know exactly just that, it’s a trend which means
naturally things die out, when new ideas come up and everybody wants to be part of the next big thing, its a common, it’s a
commonality we would say, and if you look back through US history, specifically at car culture, you’d be pretty insane to see
how far we’ve come especially in the space, you know, few decades, the 60’s and 70’s was
an insanely weird time, because you had the muscle car haven and then the 70’s came, and then the EPA ruined
everything that was fun, and then you had everything that went into like wood station wagons, and then going in to low
riders, and things like that, then you had the 80’s and 90’s come around with the Japanese cars
started to get imported and you had the Honda’s, the
Datsun’s, and the Nissan’s, and the things like that, then you had Honda Civic’s
with insane body kits, mini trucks with wild paint jobs, pretty sure people were
taking their new Scion FR-S’s and BRZ’s and then pretty
much the same thing, there pretty much doing the same thing, just the platform changed, they put them on the ground instead of lifting them up, they put the 20 degree’s of camber on it. So the question is, is
well could it be a trend? Now here’s the thing you have to take in to consideration, the
automotive scene is much more than just than the United States and if you look over across the way in to Japan and things like that, or even Europe, you’d see
that the whole European and Japanese stance scene has been a thing for quite a while now, so you can’t just knock it off as a trend, especially as it gets more common in the good ole US of A, the US of A is like mid west of USA alone, like the USA is the last one to get any of the cool stuff, the mid west in the USA
is always the last one to get any of the cool stuff, like Yeezy’s are the thing right now, but I’m pretty sure they we’re the thing like seven years ago in California, I wouldn’t even be shocked if that was the case, now before you type your comment, I already know what you’re going to say, but Alex, most of the cars
are so super popular now, and the racing scene is
huge with no stupid camber, now listen I get it, that’s true, and you know it really is. But have you seen the
Mustang’s and Camaro’s that have been rolling around with the insane camber wide wheels? If you jump out to our gallery, you start to see people
taking those muscle cars and doing just that, you see people taking all
sorts of different vehicles and making all crazy excessive styling, now take it back to 2000’s, probably the most recent
of a different sort of generation change and a lot of it had to do with flat profile
wheels, the hood scoops, the roof scoops, you had the lips, you had the flat profile wheels, you had the crazy vinyl on the side, but at the time that was the cool thing, one that’s always remained
the same though is the fact that it’s always been some sort of excessive expression of nature, now if you look at GT 86’s, 350 Z’s, GTI’s, Camaro’s, Volvo’s, you could pretty much run slanty (inaudible) set ups on all of those and people are rocking
the hell out of them. So will they really die out? Some people say it should
have never have started, and other’s are now hoping that they will just please, you know, please end, Oh my gosh, please end, we’ve seen the comments, we’re there, we usually
have to respond to them, because we hardly eye everything, or we just delete them, because you guys some
times are little bit mean. Right? But it’s a trend, that started really, I mean for a long time ago, it’s been a thing for quite a long time and now that the people have gone kind of to social’s more and more often, you’re just now seeing
a little bit more of it, Now has it gotten a little
bit more socially acceptable? Yeah. Do I think there ever going to die out? That’s a question that
really kind of depends on what people are replacing it with, because really with car trends they last about five to seven years, give about one to two generations of vehicles for people to roon the trend and then people want to
go do something different, because not everybody is doing it, you can actually see that start to happen with the big wing thing that’s happening, now people are trying to
go to the duck bill set up, because they don’t want
to be like everybody else, they want to do something that’s unique in their on way, stance excessive camber that whole thing was the unique thing and it has been the unique
thing for some time now, that’s pretty much it. Do I think? Or do we think that stance
cars are gonna die out? Maybe, probably, because I don’t think that it’s a staple of the scene just yet, but if it continues to be as successful and as prominent as it has been, in the past three to five years, it might just be the
low riders of the 70’s, you have to remember that
taking it back to the 70’s and 60’s, and 50’s and 80’s, and 90’s there was always stuff
that people were doing that made cars inherently less functional, but people still just had that much more of a fun time with it, any time you’ve probably
done something unique, you just have to look back about 30 years and you’d probably find somebody that’s already did it, accept in a more weirder way, with more hair, you
know like puffier hair, probably some more hair spray, some things like that and you know it might be something that’s not for every body, but it really kind of comes down to, I don’t know. Does it matter? Let us know what you guys think in the comment section
below, we’d love to hear it, and of course don’t forget to subscribe if you’re looking for
wheels, tires, suspension, or you want to see what people
are running for their set up, so that their on stance or not, we have a huge aftermarket gallery, with other 10 thousand
vehicles over there, that you can actually
see what’s super common, now stance is obviously the loudest, but you’d have to be pretty surprised at how many people are actually going for pretty standard look these days and instead of going
for the stancey thing, they have a tendency to be going towards the super meaty track
set up, pretty interesting, anyway I’m Alex, we will
see you guys later, peace.

100 thoughts on “Will Stanced Cars Die Out

  1. Do you think stanced cars will die out? Let us know! Also, dont forget to check out

  2. im cool with other people stancing but i would never do it to my car because i like to actually drive the thing. sometimes it looks nice and sometimes it looks like shit, but thats everything in life

  3. Love the scene for different reasons, and you never think something new can come from it but that’s how everyone felt before stance came into play. It’s all a game of time and place

  4. I may be in school, unable to watch the video through, but you know what I'll never forget?


  5. Debating of buying the shirt for a chance to win coil overs but I ain’t even got a car yet. Cause the dude I was gonna buy my 350 from never responded. He said this week but hasn’t said anything. Smh. School next week too.

  6. I think having wheels flush with fender is always a good look. Having wheel gap doesn’t look good. A mild drop and a good fitment is nice but people have taken it to the extreme. People wanted more. They wanted more low. More wide. They wanted it so much they sacrifice drivability with all the excessive camber, shredded tires, and buckled fenders. That’s the stance that I hope dies. The average Joe that just wants no wheel gap and good fitment? That’s always welcome.

  7. ( I AM NOT BEING A DOUCHEBAG I actually like how cambered cars look…) but can you camber gang bois explain to me what is the point of destroying your subframe bumpers and such?

  8. I've always loved the track inspired look on ANY car – but this does come with a caveat: ridiculous, overdone aero and canards and splitters really look goofy and cartoonish on a street car. When a vehicle is purpose built for track use and those items are actually dialed in to match the performance level of the car, and the track it's running on, it's awesome.

    I think for most street cars, a mild track inspired setup looks wonderful. Some aero work? Yeah. Racing style wheels and rubbers? Yeah. A PROPER suspension kit (with the right amount of camber – 2-5 deg)? Yeah.

    I think function is far more important, but function can also look DAAAAAAMN good.

  9. I really hope stance goes away. As much as I love a clean stanced seatup I can’t stand it when people have a crazy amount of camber with crazy stretched tires.

  10. Played Out? Maybe.. Die Out? I dont think so.. maybe die out for an individual as they get older. Like getting blacked out drunk 6 nights a week.

  11. Of course they will die out. Just like every other car style trend. You can see how dated cars from the early and even mid 2000s look, and the same will happen to the slanty bois

  12. I live in Michigan and because there are so many pot holes and bad roads we don’t see as many slammed cars and we usually see hatchbacks and muscle cars

  13. props for adding a VW Passat/Jetta to your video. I have a passat TDI and I never see anyone do anything with them in the modding/ performance scene.

  14. I think they will, but not due to being replaced by a new trend. I think they'll start to die out with Enforcement getting stricter and stricter in a lot of places with stuff like that, and people will get tired of being pulled over and fined for it. That, and I think people will start to realize how expensive it really is to run a setup like that, so less and less people will either get into it, or continue it, leading to the decline. There are some really nice stanced cars out there, but as with any group, there's 'bad apples'. Those in this case, imo, are the people with stupid amounts of camber (well into the 10's), running static or just super low rides who just destroy the frame and undercarriage.

  15. Back in 2010/2011 it was called hellaflush and it was just becoming a big thing… So we're looking at around 10 years of stance and I still love it just not on every single one of my cars but I always have a wide wheel slanty boi setup on at least one yes lol

  16. Stance is cool but only if you're bagged. Static obviously looks good all the time but whats the point of having a cool looking car if you can't take it anywhere you want or not being able having to have many passengers due to scraping? I did static for 3 years but bags is the way to go if you wanna go for the stance look.

  17. I couldn’t really say, other than in these video’s I don’t see tricked out cars in my area, some nice cars but other than some interesting classic cars all the sports cars look stock.

  18. Stance really depends on the person . I seen people who loved stance get rid fo their camber eventually. Feel like its never gonna die out tbh its too big

  19. For me IDC what the trend is…..I just like the car community, If they like something and make there car look how they want, thats fine, I could care less weather I think it looks stupid or not… Not everyone is that way, but making friends is the biggest thing for me when going to car shows and studd

  20. Ah yes, FI knows I'm only here for the slanty boy wheels 😂. Stance isn't going anywhere and it makes me even happier that is bothers so many people.

  21. What are some good budget friendly tires good for stretching ? I know y’all have a video on this but they most of them seem to be backordered or discontinued

  22. I think it'll phase out. But its gonna be a bit. I'm not really interested in stance, though some come out clean, alot come out of left field like "what happened to that". To each their own.

  23. As someome who lives in southern california who has buddies and family in the midwest i can 110% you guys are like 3-5 years late on every trend.

    Yeezys were in litterally 4-5 years ago.

    I remember when my buddies told me everyone was starting to drink fireball like a year ago and my thought was "damn we got over that 3 years ago"

  24. Well, everything eventually dies out and gets replaced by something else. Hopefully the next trend is as different as stance was once before.

  25. How do stance guys deal with the mind torture that is the scraping noises of the underbelly? My frs is slightly lowered and it drives me crazy when I hear my front lip or diffuser scrape on uneven's even more embarassing when I see waaay to low cars get stuck on speed bumps or driveways. As a car guy, I can't deal with that level of embarrassment…too much pride. 🤣

  26. What alex said was key… These are modern day lowriders. Hispanic/Latino culture been doing this. Im black btw and i pay respect and homage to where it came from. Its not going out of style any time soon. Lowriders been a thing longer than the viewers watching this been alive

  27. stance looks hella clean but if it's double digits it's not good for daily driving. But sometimes u can get in trouble for mad camber by the cops so just make sure your in the right area for it. For me I only add camber to the front wheels for more tractionboiz

  28. Love you guys at fittment industry’s, got a whole bunch of gear head friends just like you here in Miami. In my opinion trends like stance although look awesome sitting still at a car show, there just as impractical as those big rim chevys we see all over the place. In my opinion if I’m gonna put money into a car I should be able to drive it anywhere without worrying about tires or my oil pan or other issues that make these rides impractical. I have a Dinan S2 E39 with a built motor sitting on 19’s with air ride and I drive it daily. I even take it to New York during the summer time and spend a week with my folks. Not mocking stance in anyway it looks cool I just don’t feel like stance cars are good for anything except sitting pretty at car shows.

  29. I would not stance my car personally mainly because factory rally car cough Evo 9 but I Respect all car builds! I even like boosted handas lol

  30. You right, a lot of ppl done a lot of things to a lot of car. The point now is to do the same thing on a car that no one ever did it, to it. 😈 unique, unexpected, good looking ( not a ricer shit) car. Get the right choice ppl. There are still a lot of cars that haven’t been touched yet. The market is big. Good luck to ya all.

  31. It will.
    And so will the hot shit after that.
    It all stems from similar roots however, so it's all going to go round and round with the exception of some more creative craftsmen.

  32. I hate slanted wheels so much if its not for a reason, I know that a little bit of camber can look pretty nice, but i still think that a flush fitment looks so much better and is more functional.

  33. Lmao honestly tho, stanced cars kinda feel unsafe, like the fact that the wheels kick out like that make me feel uneasy about driving like I’d scrape everything

  34. Stanced cars look like a dog dragging its ass on the carpet, only blind people think it looks good. Flush and lowered is good but never go full camber tard.

  35. wide body and fenders are forever dope, but if i was constantly wearing down one side of my tires and couldn't roll over a speed bump id prob get pissed : P

  36. Could you do an episode on the Texas culture of swangers and elbows those super weird wheels I don’t know a lot about them but I want to learn why

  37. It’s nice if they are not cambered excessively.i think it’s a phase for young people or their is a certain way it should be pulled off.

  38. I personally love stance to an extent but of course it's going to die out. All car trends eventually go away or evolve into something different and fresh. But I'm sure like many things it will come back into style.
