    I got a nice set of 17 inch wheels on my car right now but I'm thinking about going down to 15's to get less wheel hop and they are significantly lighter. I noticed that most the autocross guys are running Slipstreams and even people that don't race. So since there so popular do people look down on someone for getting them? I told a friend I might pick up some Slipstreams and he told me that I would be like everyone else. What are your guys opinions? What do you think when you see a honda with slipstreams. Do you think "those are nice", Or do you think "wow look at those, everyone and there uncle has a set of those" :confused:

    I say that every time I see a Honda in general. Get what you like. You're gonna try and be different like all the other millions of Honda people out there. Nothing you'll ever put on your Honda will ever be 'different'. It's your money, your taste, if you like the slipstreams go for it... I myself like the Rota Grids though.

    Yeah I was looking at the Grids too. Pretty nice looking wheels, they kinda remind me of Volks.

    I think It's more of an "I'm scared what people will say if I'm not unique" kind of post :).
