Hellaflush look not street-legal in Quebec

Quebec's Auto Insurance Board is reminding gearheads that hellaflush cars are not street-legal in this province.

The hellaflush look is enjoying a surge in popularity.

To get it, owners lower the car's suspension and put stretched tires on oversized, offset rims. As a result, the car has just an inch or two of clearance above the pavement.

The SAAQ says hellaflush cars may be interesting to look at but have always been banned from Quebec's roads because of their stretched tires.
