    I'm trading my 17's for some 14's as a backup set of wheels. i already have my flat black 15" Rota Slips and i just want a extra set of wheels. Saying that, these are some pics of the 14"s. My question is, are they oem honda wheels?

    The guy's cousin said they were SI wheels. after looking at them for a bit, i thought they were hx wheels, but the hx wheels have 8 spokes, not 7 like these do, BUT they are like identical to the HX wheels besides that. i havent seen a SI wheel that looks like these, so idk. u think its a good trade?

    I figured they would fit. Anyone else think they are HX wheels? I want a couple more opinions.

    HX Wheels

    Those are pictures of a set of HX wheels I bought a LONG time ago... and I know for sure that what I had were HX wheels.

    If what you have pictures of are 15s, they could be JDM ITR wheels from 1996. I'm pretty sure those were 7 spokes with 4 lugs, but then the wheel pattern would have been 4x114.3 instead of 4x100. I think. It's been a while.

    They DO look like Enkei wheels though, and Enkei is who made that style of wheel for Honda in the HX, VX and the R I believe.

    Ah, I stand corrected- sort of. Newer HX, not older 6th gen like I had. :)

    thanks :)

    and im not sure on the weight i cant find anything anywhere for them
    if i had to guess i would say somewhere in the 12-15 area :shrug:

    should work well for throwing a set of slicks on... definitely better than the 17s :)

    get the tire off of them and weigh them then post it up :)

    yeah the 17s will be gone as of tomorrow afternoon when i get off of work. i'll roll on the hx's till January when i can get my rear tires and get them and my bfg's mounted onto my Rota Slips. then i'll stash them back till i get a extra block built and a extra tranny to throw a lsd in and get me some mickey thompsons to go on them hx wheels. i think i'm losing torque now bc of the 17s. so much weight and rotational mass that it is slowing me down. that, and they are 8" wide, which is prob helping with traction but hell, i wanna burn them down!!! i wanna spin the hell out of them in 1st and chirp the shit outta 2nd and chirp 3rd a least a lil bit.
