    I am looking into getting some lightweight rims and good tires. My car is a daily driver, but I also like going to the drift track, and I do hit the drag strip sometimes. Any suggestion?

    with 14'' wheels you will run into problems when you start going for brake upgrades.

    15x7 +42 is my favorite size as well. a nice 205/50 15
    tons of tires are available, and its a nice balanced wheel on a honda

    Does anybody have pics of 15x7s, +42 offset. I will be going with 15x7s, but I don't know what different offsets look like. If no pics, where does it put the wheel? Stock is +40, if I recall correctly. Does 2 mm make that much of a difference in appearance or is that just for clearance?
    Thanks

    14 inch wheels will really limit you when it comes to tire selection... not many decent tires will fit a 14 inch wheel, especially in the height you need to match up to your Civic/Integra transmission.
