I think i might change what wheels i get. As some of u know i was going to get some 17 in ssr competitions but i think i might get some 16 in spoon sw388's now. What do u guys think?




Does anyone have a picture of these wheels on an ebp civic?

I would go for spoon sw388. Because it look good and weight reduction too. I loved that rim myself. I'm going to get one for next summer.

It's your choice. Both of these rims look good too.

if the price bothers you, the Rota Slipstream wheel weighs in at 11.9lbs comes in 9 different colors including sw388 flat black, and is an exact replica of that wheel. I think it might even be lighter than the wheel it is a copy of and you can find them in 15x6.5in for under 100 bucks each, the 16s costing only a little more than that- up to you, but its gonna be $365 for a full set of those and most of the people that see them wont even be able to tell the difference, you probably wont either. dont get me wrong, i love legit spoon shit, and like spending money on totally useless things sometimes, but the rotas are a deal thats hard to pass up considering how light/strong they are. have fun deciding what to do. peace

sw388's are the best rim you can buy, they are not for look, they are for performance. a 15in sw388 weighs 9lbs. The rota's and the sw388s look totally different, you can tell the difference a mile away. The spoon wheels arent actually black, more of a flat dark grey, or almost a primer black color. The rota's have a little shine to them, but they still look good, I had a pair of 15's, I am getting some more of them in 16in. The rota is a great wheel for a good price, but they arent the same as the sw388's

they're both black, but with a different finish....you can hardly tell the difference if the cheesy centercap wasn't there...

myflysi- 2.5 lbs does make a difference...maybe he's not going to be in any competitive racing or maybe he is, so giving approximate measurements could prevent those unwanted comments, ya know?
