    will a 14' wheel fit over a 10.2' rotor? i plan on using drilled/slotted integra rotors on the front of my crx for better braking. and what pads would you recomend that would be extremely strong but still streetable? thanks

    Well, the 94-01 Integra came stock with 14 inch steel wheels and 10.3 inch rotors, so I think it'll be ok.

    :)

    One of my friends is running the 90-93 Integra brakes all around (10.2 or 10.3 up front) on his CRX underneath the 14 inch HX wheels, and he didn't have to do any funny grinding of the calipers or shimming of the wheels to get them to fit.

    cool. i am thinking about getting some hx wheels or maybe rotas. i want drilled/slotted because if i am upgrading the brakes i want them to look cool too. i can get brembo cross drilled/slotted on ebay for cheap anyway so i might as well get the look.
