    A bunch of my buddies have been telling me that the word being passed around the local car shops is that PA is passing some new laws regarding the modification of cars- They said, no car can have wheels more than 2" larger than stock, no aftermarket exhaust whatsoever, and no more than 2" lower than stock height- Can anyone verify this is really true? I mean what's going on, what are they trying to do, I don't see what harm a person is doing by having a set of 17's on his civic? If this is true, man i'm screwed

    they are gonna put a lot of shops out of business, not to mention all the wheel shops around that only sell bigger rims- I mean shit, what harm is it realy doing- I can imagine a ton of accidents stemming from cars lowered more than 2 inches- In fact, lower cars are more stable, so one would assume less accidents would result

    :lol: so true.

    As far as I can tell, previous laws state that "ride height is permitted with limitations"

    If you wanna look up laws head on over .....here:

    or call:
    (800) 932-4600 and ask someone. ;)

    :withstupid:

    I slid through an intersection Saturday and my car is light as hell*... think of what would happen if someone with an SUV with all that weight tried that...



    *it was raining, I was doing the speed limit and the light turned yellow, I tried to stop, then realized 2000 Si's don't come with ABS, tried pumping the brakes, slid into the intersection and said fuck it and dropped a gear and went through... I figured if I did get stopped for it, I could say I tried to stop. :unsure:

    yeah or even more important than SUVs with huge wheels and stock brakes, how about the god damn SUVs themselves, why don't they crack down on the real problem which is the enormous amount of gas the country consumes (mainly thanks the gigantic suv's on the market) instead of picking on us guys who are just enjoying a hobby

    I just don't think you're seeing it. I don't know how many times I've seen a Z28 get busted for just "breaking traction" downtown... cops around here LOOK for street racing...whether you're doing it or not doesn't matter.

    oh oh ok I see mang. ;)

    Probably because this import craze is making the cops pay attention to it...You got fucktard ricers revving at Domestics and accidently rammin their cars into the rears of the cars in front of them. (you've all heard the stories) I bet that's why. :)

    Right next door in ND the hot rods have a car show on wed. and they do burnouts and run without any mufflers. They also have no fenders, just open wheels. But of course I get pulled over twice in one week for no front license plate because I was driving a lowered civic :ph34r:

    well, if you dont go 2 inches over stock, you have less of a chance plaguing your gas mileage and fucking up your speedometer. :p
