    well as most of you know i have a 1990 honda crx si... well i have been having a bunch of electrical problems and have decided to get my parents to loan me some money until i get a summer job. so about two weeks ago, i bought a 1990 honda civic dx hatch. it is white with blue interior. it is in EXCELLENT shape. on the entire car, there are two very very minor dings that are only seen when brought to your attention. it is slow as piss and gets awesome gas mileage.

    i want to get a nice set of lightweight rims, preferably rota, which rims/color should i get knowing i have a white car? i really like the circuit 8's and slipstreams in gunmetal. any suggestions.

    the b16a in my crx is going into this hatch as soon as i get some free time. i have alot of mods and will post pics along the way of the install. to see a full list of current mods click here.

    those cars need to have color matched moldings and bumpers. I would suggest doin that :) As for a while car, you can pretty much put ANY color rim on them.

    Personally I think it depends on the direction your going with the car. If you want a clean race car go with black or gunmetal wheels. Black and white look perfect on anything and go great with carbon fiber. If your going show then you could look into powdercoating your wheels blue ecspecially if your leaving your interior blue. Blue and white look bomb diggity SON!!
