Tuck or Poke on a 156 sportwagon?

Im selling my 156 saloon (see classifieds) as i need a more practical estate.

Just planning modding the replacement car, has anyone got pictures they can post for the sportwagon with tuck or poke on the wheels.

Also whats the best suspension for a low stance.

Re: Tuck or Poke on a 156 sportwagon?

Hi.I really must be out date here just hitting the ripe old age of 40 but i'm not entirely sure what 'tuck' and 'poke' mean exactly.I have allesio 8jx18" alloys with 225/40/18 tyres.The suspension is a progressive eibach sport kit which i think is lowered by about 25/30mm from standard.Go to to my profile and have a look at the photo's and see what you think.It's entirely subjective as to what a low stance is,but it might give you an idea as to what you are looking for.To give good handling characteristics i have left toe out the same as standard,but take into account a vast increase in tyre wear when fitting very wide tyres/wheels.
