I ordered a set of them friday. I wont get them till monday though. Tell me what you think.



I decided to go with the 18's this time. I sold my old wheels to a customer wednesday. I use to have a set of 17" Katana Inspire. So, until then, Im stuck rollin on stock.

yeah definitely not on an import of any kind...truck rims just don't look nice on cars...esp. when mofo's put on 20's on old school monte's and caprice's - look like hos on stilletos

Oh my god man. I have never seen so much animosity. The wheels are not SUV wheels, they are regular +40 wheels.

Yes, the car is lowered on TEIN SS dampers with the optional pillowball upper mounts.

The wheels only weigh 16 lbs without the tire. 21 lbs with the tire. Thats lighter then the stock wheels I had on my 03 civic.

I will post up pics soon. Yes, they are going on a hatch. If I dont like them, Ill just sell them, it will be an easy wheel to move.

Also, about the performance thing, right now its a stock civic, so, performace was lacking from day 1!

Even though they are ligher they will still take away about 5-10 hp because the rotational mass is being increased by 4 inches.

Aren't you gonna do something about it? That's like driving a Ferrari and giving it 1/8 throttle and saying its slow. There's just so much you can do w/a Civic...
