    Hey, If I ended up with a set of 18 inch rims for a honda civic 88-00. What am I to do with them, where would I sell them?
    (of course this is hypothetical, but would influence the buy).

    That's what I was guessing... Gosh. Who puts 18 inch rims on a Civic.. Maybe I would get lucky though, and be able to do a trade with somebody for some 15 inch OEM rims.

    Thanks for the thoughts.^_^

    You could get 3 sheets of plexiglass/glass/wood and make end tables and a coffee table.

    Hmmm, side thought. What should I replace the 18's with? I was thinking 15 or 16 inch. More leaning towards 15's because my brother has 16's on his 1990 LX.

    What size rims would You suggest for a 1995 Dx Hatchback? Based on performance? Style? Price?
    Nice rims, good price, able to find good priced tires for them.

    What about some 205/45x16? I was actually thinking about 16 inch rims instead... then I'll have buy a crappy set of wheels for winter.
