    17" :roll: 35mm offset may tuck, but you should just avoid 17's they look wrong on Civics.

    :withstupid: if you really want larger heavier wheels just go with 16s. I'd rather stick with 15s and 14s and have 11 pound rims.

    depends on the tire, but in my case, my tires way mopre then my rims do.. i have 15" rota circuit 8's, which are a whopping 12 lbs..

    i weighed the rims with tires on... combined they weighed 30 lbs.

    Yea, i bought them already.. 38mm offset 17x7 18lbs... the same as my wheels and tires now, so that kinda sucks. But as soon as i get my military pay comin in i will save for a swap to balance the loss...

    Does anyone know the formula for rotating weight or whatever (to tell how much weight i will really be adding)?
    thanks again...

    Ohh and the reason i got these wheels is because i found them for $649 w/ tires mounted and balanced w/ lug nuts and shipped... Ohh and they painted them black for me too(left the lip polished)...

    If anyone wants to see them heres the link

    Thanks for your guys' input... and thanks for stopping the jacking of my thread...
