The wheel/tire fitment goal is something like this: low, flush


Tabs let them cheat the laws into having lower offset wheels stock. I will bet it's mostly designers like me b****ing and whining to have better wheel fitment, and the lawyers coming back telling them it's not possible. Then the designers come up with some little cheat that allows both of them to get what they want: a cool looking car they can legally sell.
