Okay, so I just got my '01' Civic coupe. No mods what so ever. Just wondering what advice you guys can give me in terms of what size wheels to hook myself up with. I am leaning towards 17's followed by a swift drop. Then an induction kit and exhuast system to add a few more hp. Any ideas or thoughts would be much appreciated. Cheers

ohsnapsjay08 will become famous soon enough
i'd say go for suspension first (like sway bar, camber kit and coilover etc etc), exhaust (exhaust first before intake then header last.. even just stock header will do) then rims then so on and so forth... it never ends but you never go wrong in suspension.. looks and ride quality (well if you get the right coilover or shocks/springs combo) and get it aligned then buy your great looking rims. (viseversa wont matter)

i say drop it first, get wheels..nothing bigger than 17" really, i had 17s on my ride but i wanna go down to like 15 or 16 cause it rides to rough, its up to you on that one but i would do all suspension mods first than focus on the boosting it since bolt on's for our cars dont do anything except sound really
