    I have a 97 Del Sol S with factory steel wheels. I want to get better wheels soon. I have seen on other del sol's, they have an alloy wheel that is 5 spoke and the face is pretty flat and cut with ta black "H" in the middle. I have noticed on several others latly, they have had a 5 spoke wheel that was more rounded that looks tons better also with the "H" in the middle but it wasent black. I am guessing these wheels were what was put on the earlier Del Sol's. If this is right, does anyone know what years they used them? Thanks!

    Not sure on the years or if your set on a set of sol alloys...but just a side note...If you want OEM honda wheels...the 99 GSR blades on my sol look pretty sick.

    I NEVER would have put the 14" 'Fat 5's' off the del sol/Civic EX on my ride... I put the thinner 5 spoke design Del sol/Civic/Acura Integra wheels off an LS Integra like what's pictured above on my car for a month, and everyone kept asking where I got those cool hubcaps. :rolleyes:

    Fuckers.

    Anyway, I didn't like the way the 14" tires felt on my ride, so I got my cool li'l 16" wheels at that point.

    Now I'm rolling 15" Rota Subzero's! :D
