New drop!

Koni Yellows wrapped in GC Coilovers. Pictures in HDR ftw. (Same pix from h-i if you post there! hahaa)

Still ridin' dirty... but I couldn't wait to take pix.



















All critiques welcome of course. The wheels/tires are 16x7 wrapped in 205/45 tires, but I was thinking of going thicker like 205/50 or 215/45 for better tire protection and I also want to raise it a little more... Roads around campus sux. What do yall think?

nice. looks like the camber on the rear is off though. could just be the pics. looks like the top's leaning in too much.

i'm about to do Eibach pro's with tokico blues. i think the stock RSX-S are either 205/50 or 215/50. that's what's on my father in law's RSX-S and it looks good with 16's whatever that size is, that's what i'm going to do. if 215/50 will fit, that's what i want. i want the 50 sidewall for better ride.

been photoshopped. look at the dark around the corners. plus, compare that pic to the blue in the sky of the other pics. definitely enhanced.

Re: New drop!

Re: New drop!

stock rsx is 205/55/16. and i recommend 205/50/16. perfect. if you go 215/45 youll not get as many tires, 205/50 is more buyable, more choices, and an excellent tire size. not too big. Honda rec. so 205/50. it wont be that much of a difference between the 205/45. nice pictures, and drop. like the choice in rims on their size and the window visors!!!

Re: New drop!

^^^ Thanks for the info... so is it not worth it for 205/50s over 45s? I'll just wait until they wear out.

The rear is slightly dropped w/out a camber kit so that's probably why the rear camber is off.

Those aren't center caps in the rear... it's just what the center of the hub looks like. haha

I didn't lower the rear as much because people sit back there and i've always got loads of books and junk in the rear... it gets too low sometimes.

And yeah, all the pix have some degree of color enhancement... CS2 is my best friend. ehehe

Re: New drop!

205/45 would be a 23.3" diameter wheel

205/50 would be a 24.1" diameter wheel

205/55 would be a 24.9" diameter wheel

215/45 would be a 23.6" diameter wheel

my stock size is 185/70/14 which is a 24.2" wheel. so as burke suggested, the 205/50 would be the best fit to stock. mainly so the speedometer readings are still fairly accurate.
