    I just bought the 15x6.5 Rota Slipstreams (Black) on www.modacar.com for $99 each that came to $468.00 shipped!

    Now all I need to find is a set of Potenza's S-03s :p

    Unfortunately they didn't have the gun metal ones in stock :(

    yea jason throws in lugnuts and good lugs cost you a decent amount. That makes jason alot cheaper. I decided that i am going to get the rota group n but that will not be untill i get my swap done (long way down the road)

    not to mention his shipping is free most the times (included in his prices)
    468 shipped could have been 425 from a shop that helps out hondaswap by advertising with us and offering it members the best deals.
    ohh well :/

    I got my Rotas today....woohoo! they look so badass!, I love the center caps.
    Unfortunately I couldn't afford Bridgestone Potenzas S-03s so I got Kumho Ecsta Supra 712 instead :(
    Size 205/50 -15V

    Turns out the wheels didn't cost $468, they were $456 w/ shipping.

    Otherwise I ordered black Kyokugen lug nuts from Jason so I can't wait to put those on, because the silver ones I have right now look kinda funny.

    I'll try to take pictures of the wheels once this fucking rain stops in Dallas :angry:
    I guess the rain is a good way to test the new tires. :D

    Walmart would've mounted my tires really cheap, but they wouldn't put the wheels on my car because they weren't stock. They were afraid I could sue them if they put the "wrong size" wheels on my car.
    Turned out the Toyo place where I got my tires put them on for free.
