thinking about rims again...

hmm so I have some money saved in the turbo fund that isn't happening ($200 lol) so i thought about getting rims. I have alot more to save obviously and it seems the rims i want only come in 16s so i would need new tires too. so i think in a year or two if i still have the car I want to get these rims and some tires. what do you think? or other suggestions? lightweight is a requirement but i also want them to look good.

Those things are crap, regardless of how much they charge. They're soft and flexible, a lot of people can take them racing and turn 4 into eggs in a single season. Realtime racing stopped using them because they were fed up dealing with bent ones.
I really don't recommend those wheels at all. They're just not very strong.
For that much money, look at Volks (CE28, TE/LE37, SE37K), look at Wed's (TC005) and look at Work (Forged Emotion), or find some slightly used Mugens.

Not to mention SSR is floating the bankruptcy line.... I think someone took them over, but if they fold again and you need to replace one,you're going to be SOL.

Rotas are supposed to be pretty strong for lightweight wheels arent they?

Why not just start saving for a new car since you seem so dissatisfied with your Civic?
