Default smaller tires on rims

is there a specific name for when you get a smaller depth on a tire to make the rim look like its sticking out, giving that angle on the tire corner?

I think the more low profile the more "square" they are, and some of it has to do with tire manufacture.

Yes it has.
But on which setup is it likely to happen first. 265 on a 18x9.5 Or 205 on a 18x9.5.

here in FL I hear it called stretched...

looks pimp. I personally have not seen any blow up.

If it's just for looks I guess it would be ok but if you do hard cornering or put in alot of highway miles I would stay away from it.

just my .02

I think he's referring to stretched Canadian tires. Poke would be protruding from the fenders. You can have stretch with no poke, and poke with no stretch.

I ran 205's 19x9 BBS's on my GTI and had people telling me "i think your tires are flat" all the time. I never had problems with traction and I pushed em hard for 3 summers. Although they were KDWs and it was only a GTI
