    everybody on this board is gonna vote for the hood. go to superhonda and everybody will say "get dos blingin' shizzy dubs y0". but if it were my money, i'd spend the money modding out the engine before i spent it on weight reduction. it sounds like you're somewhat of a ricer, by you avatar and what you choose to, in my oponion, waste your money on.

    i don't have pop up headlights- look at my gallery, links in my sig..

    i guess you can call me a ricer.. i wanna look descent before i go for speed.. my car has 140,000 miles on it, and it doesn't have much potential; thus requiring a new motor.. i want to look descent before i swap in an h22. rims, cf hood*which first, i ono*, then save for the swap, is my plan

    Why would the 17's be considered rice in the first place? Whats wrong w/ rims? As long as they arent blingin, I dont see the problem. Accords aren't exactly small cars either.

    i voted for the rims. you'll get alot more performance out of rims than from a cf hood...plus, a car with a cf hood and stock rims looks ricey. about the size of the rim, i wouldnt go more than 3 sizes above stock, or it starts to look ghetto IMO...and they would probably rub alot too.

    17's have no place on a Civic... 15's, 16's max(although it is hard to find good tires in 16" sizes)... on a larger car like an Accord or Prelude i would definatly go with a 17...

    there aint nuthin wrong with that B) all the "show before go" bashing is really just people's opinions. if this was hondagallery everyone would support your decision.

    all i'm going to do to my car before the swap is lower *already done* rims and a hood, and i could care less if you think i'm rice or not, because i really don't care what anyone else thinks about my car. i was mearly asking what one i should do first because both are going to be done, but in what order.

    Voted wheels. 16"s are ok on Accords, just don't get those tiny tires like mine (205/40's) Get at least 50's . But on 17" wheels, 215/40's look good.
    CF hoods are the :ghey: unless on a white car.
