    I'm about to order some wheels from these guys but I called and got what sounded like a voicemail system for a cellphone (kinda ghetto). Just thought I'd ask to see if anyone has Yays or Nays for this company. Thanks.

    i bought my azenis from them. they are local so i just drove down there. they are nearly impossible to get ahold of on the phone, but have good prices.

    Great thanks i'll check it out, one other thing, i just talked to a company and the guy there said 215/45-16 (Azenis) on a EJ civic will throw off the speedometer? He suggested that I get Yoko Parada 205/45-16. Now unless I can't do math the Yoko's will throw it off worse than the Falkens. See my reasoning below:

    Stock: 185/65-14; 185*.65 = 120.25mm
    (120.25*2)+355.6mm{14" in mm} = Total diameter = 596.1mm

    Falken: 215/45-16; 215*.45 = 96.75mm
    (96.75*2)+406.4mm{16" in mm} = Total diameter = 599.9mm

    Yoko: 205/45-16; 205*.45 = 92.25mm
    (92.25*2)+406.4mm{16" in mm} = Total diameter = 590.9mm

    The difference between stock and the others makes the Yoko's F'up the speedo the worst...The only problem I could forsee would be the 215 width being too wide???

    Thanks.

    i'd run the azenis no questions asked. to hell with a speedo reading a couple mph slow or fast. =)

    Yea, that's what I was thinking, my last questions on this thread (I promise :lol: ) Is that would the 205/45 Parada's be better handling/driving/acceleration than the 215/45 Azeni's? And 40 or 45 offset on the rims? Thanks y'all!

    50 - 1

    lol

    personally, i prefer a +42 wheel, but rota is gay like that :D
    really, its your choice. but 6th gens tend to havy tiny wheel wheels, so id run the +40 to help avoid rubbing
