Re: new wheels today.. opinions wanted!

Not bad, dont think I remember the old ones. These arent anything special, but they work well with the car. Fix that dent on the drivers side *crings*

Re: new wheels today.. opinions wanted!

The new are more "Classy" but the rear lip is bad. So they kinda even each other out.

Re: new wheels today.. opinions wanted!

thanks for the input guys!

im surprised so many of you dont like that rear lip. imo, its the nicest rear lip they make for these cars, and i did A LOT of research. anybody who sees it in person is always impressed! no exhaust. when i bought this civic i knew the engine was weak. not worth spilling money into that (also- i dont like to fall into that fart cannon stereotype). i had a conservartive chrome tip, but they always get rusty even tho they claim "stainless steel".

this summer i will get a t2001 front bumper.

yeah, the door is actually worse than that, i touched that photo up wiith photoshop cuase its emberrasing. some biatch hit me on the highway, of course she had no insurance. she never paid so i sued her and won, not a cent in 2 years now... ist our legal system great? if she moves out of state, shes clear.

Re: new wheels today.. opinions wanted!

I don't think the gills in the rear lip are too bad, as long as there aren't actually holes there, but I think the dual exhaust holes that absolutely dwarf your actual exhaust combined with what looks like either a fake diffuser or just a inverted wing are definitely out of place... it looks like you don't even need one exhaust hole but there is two of them.... why? argghhhhh :head assplodes:

I like the wheels and the rear kit. The front looks a bit naked though in comparison to the back.
