New tire for Civics

Hey all,
Just got my Konig Blatants and put the new Michelin Pilot Exaltos on. What a great ride!
For those of you who are with me in Canada they are really hard to come by right now unless rodered from the US, but they are worth the wait!

Those Konig Blatants look awesome!! I wanted to get them, but I went with Eagle 169 (Konig Tantrum rip-offs). How much did you get your rims+tires for?

The rims were 1300 after tax and the tires I got for nothing cuz the old man works for Michelin. I think the tires are anywhere from 200 to 300 depending on the size. I went with a 16" rim with 205 50 16's. They look great. I was told that 17" rims are too big for the 7thgen and the tire size I went with was closer to the original diameter. I have a 1.75" drop as well.

Yep,
$1300 Canadian. I think it was worth it, the cars gonna look great.

hey RedsoxRyan: Nothin wrong with Toyo tires, the only thing to consider here is wear. The Michelin's will last a long time and it's not often you get a road hazzard warranty with a V+ rated tire.

Later guys, Sens vs. Leafs is coming on...Got to go do my Patriotic duty and watch the game!
Go Sens Go!
