To poke or not to poke?

Well, it's a hawaii thing I guess. The "mexi flush" trend where people take 15x10 wheels with super low offsets. I'm gonna attempt to mexiflush the right way I guess lmk what u think these r 15x10 rock crawlers with a 4" backspaceing lmk if I pull it off

Re: To poke or not to poke?

Maybe I'm just not up to date on trend terminology ...

Is 'mexiflush' supposed to be the same thing as 'hella flush'?

What's supposed to be flush with what else?

If I read you right, one thing specific to 'mexiflush' is using unusually wide rims. Right?

It's like the rim pokes but the tire is flushed with the fender. It's also known as poke

Well I like it but I'm gonna put some taller tires. Not following a trend. I did this to set a standard. If your gonna run these kinds of wheels then be low. Don't leave a 2" gap that was kinda my point. And i drive this thing daily but the taller size will be better since my front xmember is 1/2 inch off the ground

Lol it did but I work at a body shop. So I can knock that out in less then a hour. You gotta make sacrifices too fit the wheel u want. Plus I have to go out this far for the wheels I'm gonna buy
