    Bwahahah. So I needed new tires. I decided that I also needed new wheels.

    Pics up later doods. (that's why it's not in media... yet. I'm sure someone will move it once I get pics up. probably Mike lol)

    Yeah- the 18s grip the road pretty well because there's not any tire to do it with. :p

    LOL, Motegis are so heavy. I had 16" MR7's on my Accord and each wheel weighed 20lbs. In comparison, my Speedy Lite 6's are 16lbs in a 17".

    But as long as it looks good :)

    OK, took some pics. Weather sucks here right now so the car's dirty as fuck.

    [​IMG]

    Side profile. Note the park bench firmly perched on the deck lid.

    Rear right wheel.

    [​IMG]

    Left front wheel

    For good measure, my new VIS hood which I got out of the insurance dealy.

    EDIT: OK, Mike, do your thing! :lol:

    EDIT: For those who will ask, future plans include window tint and removing the wing.

    usually I have the back seat up, which effectively conceals it inside the trunk. I had to put my old wheels in the car tho so I put the back seat down.

    Only for you... I should just lock the thread because it's in the wrong forum. :p :lol:

    On the other hand- it's a very clean install job on everything, but I think there are too many strong straight lines and flat surfaces on a car that was the curviest Civics to come out of a Honda factory.
