Re: how to make my wheels look slanted?
you need to buy front and rear adjustable camber kits.. adjust them to negative, and you'll get that look... looks good with a low enough drop IMO, but its super bad for your tires, and your axles..

Re: how to make my wheels look slanted?

Here are some before and after pics. Lowered on Skunk2 springs

real bad on tires, you sure you want to replace tires about as often as you change your oil?

well my sol has a 3" drop and i dont think im tucking enough to pull it off.. only way to pull it off and look good with it it to get a full coilover set (not ebay sleeves or any junk like that) drop it a good 3.5 to 4" and get a low offset wheel.. all in all... *not worth it*

Re: how to make my wheels look slanted?
The "wheels sloping out" look is caused by dumb people who lower their car, but can't afford the proper parts to get their camber corrected.
After one set of tires, they could have bought the right parts, though.
To me,this look screams "I AM AN IDIOT!!"

This is also NOT a performance enhancement. There are no race cars that have this. Do you wonder why?

:duh) :banghead)

Re: how to make my wheels look slanted?
Also one thing that i wanted to add. If you are going take your cars to shows then just get the camber kit like a skunk2 and for DD have your camber set right, and for the show then lower your car somemore and do negitave camber. I would go to a shop that has lifetime alignments so that when the show is done you can raise your car back up fix the camber some and take it to them to adjust it to the correct spot.

Re: how to make my wheels look slanted?

negative camber to an extent helps, but excessive negative camber can be worse than a stock setup.

Re: how to make my wheels look slanted?
Really, there's no gain to this.

Except looking RAW as f!#%..!!

I'm sorry don't know why but it looks awesome...totally not conventional. It's just a look thing...but I like it some ppl don't.

Re: how to make my wheels look slanted?
My guess is it's just pipe from headers back and then at the bumper a tip to resemble a "muffler"

BTW, tires are slanted but pay attention to how much tire is on the ground he's got about full tire.
