    Hey I need to know if the HX rims clear Del Sol vtec brakes before I make a deal. I know for an integra, I heard you have to shave down the caliper a little but don't know if it's the same for a Del Sol vtec. If anyone can let me know for certain asap I'd really appreciate it.

    the integra and the del sol vtec have the same brakes, so if mods are needed for integra, they will be needed for the del-sol.

    Yea thats what i'm hearing. Del Sol vtec have the 10.2 rotors but for some reason I heard awhile ago the calipers weren't as big but I'm just going to assume the offset still prevents clearance of the caliper.

    That was my point of arguement but the offset of the hx's is what kills it. People on other boards are saying the vtec's won't work with hx's without modification.

    Just like integra's use 14" steelies & other 14" oem rims but the offset allows them to clear the calipers.
