    I can't remember who was looking for one or who sent them a link to a website that sells them. I bent the fuck out of mine...

    I bought one, it was definitely worth it. No one wants to sell a single hx rim. I looked around for awhile. Someone almost sold me one, he ended up flaking out. He wanted a ridiculous amount for it too.

    $150 for a brand new rim that is super lightweight, you just can't beat the price imo.

    But shitttt I don't want to cough up that much money lol. I was hoping I'd find a cheap set of old beat up ones that some ricer took off of his HX cause he just got a set of 22" Donks.

    You would think you'd be able to find a set like that. There's not very many of them around though sadly.

    I found a couple at semi-local junkyards, hopefully they're open on the weekends. I wouldn't mind picking up a set of BBS BMW basket weaves for the Crx, and I'm sure the Civic wouldn't mind trading every now and then.

    Those look decent. Any offset issues? Is this an attempt to hock them or are you just making a substitute suggestion?

    No offset issues(+45), only the bore has to be opened up a little(you can do it with a hole-saw; only needs to be about 2cm deep to clear the axle nut).

    I'm keeping mine, but Miata wheels are widely available and lighter. They're just a little wider than HX's(14x6 vs. 14x5.5), and the heaviest Miata wheel of that design weighs about the same as the HX(~11.5lb). The version I have is about 10.3lb. If you get the BBS 14" version, those are even lighter IIRC
