    My buddy Civic_88ls Just got rid of his for100 bucks, mostly because they were curbed on one spot and yeah, had bald tires.

    They aren't bad for being heavy rims, but oh well.

    Mine were 16" that weigh'ed in at about 15-16 pounds. Not BAD, but not light either. I got rid of them mostly because I needed more sidewall for cornering and straight line traction problem resolution. ;)

    I'll admit, I should have kept them for Daily Driving, I LOVED the way they looked. I was accused several times of putting chrome rims on my car, because they had the brightly machined and clearcoated face with bright silver on the rest of the wheel.

    Yeah, SIR Kid, his were the 16's he wasn't happy with them because of the curb marks and needed money so he let all 4 go cheap. He upgraded though to a set of motegi mr7's in white. They are quite nice but a lot heavier.

    To answer your question 90 Accord, his clear coat didn't come off, I don't believe.

    I had mine for 2 years, drove int eh snow and ice, no clearcoat issues. The centercap stickers did start to yellow pretty badly, though.
