Grand Theft Auto V’s success owes to the fact that it has something for everyone to relate to. No matter what kind of diverse things you may like, GTA V will never disappoint you, and out of the many side activities it has, there must be something that will attract your attention.
Even if you are a car junkie, it has something special for you in the form of detailed customization garages where you can customize your vehicles to every last detail. With that said, we bring you a complete guide to stance a car in GTA V. Let’s get right into it.
What Is A Stanced Car?
Stanced cars are a type of customization in such a way as to keep them as low to the ground as possible. They have considerably stretched tires and have a hugely negative chamber.
Now stance doesn’t necessarily mean slammed on the ground, scraping the pavement. There are a ton of different ways to stance your car.
There are meaty setups, flush poke, tucked, stretched, hellaflush, and the list goes on, stances, just referring to how the car sits. Over the years, it has been used more to refer to slammed cars, cars as low to the ground as you can get with wide flashy wheels.
All the race cars are as low as they can be for aerodynamics and traction, along with wider tires to put that power down.
Lowering your car significantly increases its visual appeal and makes your car stand out in the crowd.
Modifying a Car in GTA V
Grand Theft Auto is simply a treat for car enthusiasts, where not only can they drive your favorite car but can also modify them down to the core in great detail. Vehicles in Grand Theft Auto V come in a wide variety. Most cars may be modified with performance upgrades, bodywork, and effects.
Just drive your vehicle to the nearby garage to have it customized. Only a true car freak can genuinely appreciate the detail the developers have put into making these customization garages, where you can customize your car down to a minor feature.
Although, customization for your car might not come cheap. However, make sure to fill your pockets before going for customization.
How To Stance/Lower A Car In GTA V
There are many low vehicles in Grand Theft Auto V, especially the Super Cars and Sports Cars that are very low to the ground. But often, a player wants to play with the customization and lower a vehicle of their own choice.
First of all, let us be clear that in the customization options of GTA V, there is no option to stance cars available. But using some techniques and methods, you can lower your cars and get the proper look of a Stance Car on any vehicle of your choice.
So, in addition to this guide, the players are encouraged to play around with the customizations of your car to find the best possible fit for their car. A step-by-step guide is given for you to follow given below. Following is our guide on how to lower your car in GTA V.
Make Sure Your Car Doesn’t Have Armor Or Bulletproof Tires
Before trying to stance your car, first, make sure that your vehicle doesn’t have bulletproof tires and doesn’t have any armor.
For this, go to Wheels->Tires->Tire Enhancements and ensure that you haven’t applied bulletproof tires to your car. Similarly, in the Main Menu, set the Armor to None.
If you have armor or Bulletproof tires applied, you won’t be able to stance your car.
Lower The Suspensions
You want to have your car lowest to the ground as possible. So go to the Suspensions in the Main Menu of the Customization Bar and then select the lowest possible option. In the vehicle showcase, you will feel that your car has lowered.
A vehicle customization garage can only contribute this much to lower your car in GTA V. You need weapons to reduce your car further. For the next procedure, do as follows.
Choose A Less Noisy Weapon
The following steps to lower your car will involve weapons, and you need silenced or less noisy guns so as not to attract too much attention or heat.
You can preferably opt for any Assault Rifle but with noise and suppressor applied because you don’t want cops messing with you while lowering your car.
Use The Weapon
With the gun, you choose to lower your car, aim right at the center hubcap of the wheel of your car and shoot some fires. You will feel that side of your vehicle has lowered.
Repeat the same procedure on all four tires, and by the end, you will have a stanced vehicle. You must be precise while shooting so as not to damage your tires.
Some cars in Grand Theft Auto V do not support stance by this method. Then you will have to resort to other approaches to lower your vehicle.
When you look at your car wheels, there is some gap between the wheel arch and the tire. Aim right in this gap and shoot three times to lower your wheel. Then repeat the same procedure for all the other tires. You will have your vehicle reduced.
If even this doesn’t work, shoot the edge of the wheel arch for all wheels; it will do the job.
While shooting any of the places specified, make sure not to hit your car’s bodywork or damage your tires accidentally.
Camber The Wheels
After doing all this, there is still something that you can do to give a more lowered look to your vehicle. You can camber your wheels for this purpose. Unfortunately, there is no option for it in the customization menu of the game, but if you are interested in doing so, you will need to know how to play around with game files.
In the install directory of GTA V, there are some files with the .gtx extension. These files represent all the vehicles in the game. Look up the .gtx file of the car you want to stance and edit its .gtx file to have your desired look for the vehicle.
But we do not recommend this method unless you are an expert at doing such things.
Lastly, we would like to clarify that, just like in real life, to stance a vehicle does not add anything to its performance. Instead, if a vehicle is heavily stanced, it depreciates its performance. But a stance car is visually appealing; that is why people lower their cars in real life.
Moreover, once you have stanced your vehicle, you can use the RockstarEditorto capture unique shots of your customized vehicle. For those who do not know, Rockstar Editor is a unique feature in GTA V that allows you to record, edit and share videos made from the game footage in GTA Story Mode and GTA Online.
The tool allows players to create stunning cinematic shots of your vehicle to see your hard work to stance that vehicle paying off. So basically, this is how to stance your car in GTA V.

GTA V also allows you to customize your cars with great detail of a good racing game. Here we have tried to explain how to stance your car in GTA V.
