Cool little by little!!!

i got them on, no too satisfied about the look or the ride, first of all it shakes a lot and i took it back to the place they mounted and balance them and they re do it right in front of me so it's not balance, i really dont know what it is. and the look, it looks like a mounster truck cuz of its height!! i need an urgent drop but tires are 225/40/18 so i really dont now if i'm going to be able to drop it with little cash!! u know what i mean... but anywayz chek it out!









dont kill me with negative comments pleasee!!

Re: little by little!!!

looks fine, needs a drop tho, but if ur shaking, u need a rebalance, find a place that has a hunter road force balancer, one of ur tires might not be seated all the way, it does happen with low pro's and big rims, specially if u dont balance with a road force balancer, it wont pick it up, id get em checked

Re: little by little!!!

Be careful with your drop on those tires. You are going to have crazy rubbing issues. I had a buddy with that same size wheel/tire combo, and he was barely dropped at all and rubbed over almost everything.


If they balanced your tires, and they are sure its correct, get the car aligned.

Re: little by little!!!

Nice rims! but 40 seems like an awfully big profile for and 18" rim it probably won't look so monster truck if you go with a lower profile tire but if you do that you are going to get a much harsher ride from the lower profile i would go with what every one else is saying drop it an inch on sports springs

Re: little by little!!!

tinting the windows and blacking out the headlights are a few cheap mods you should do to help give the car a matching color scheme. The wheels only look out of place because of how painfully stock the rest of the car looks. Don't rush into lowering the car on a low budget, figure out exactly the type of suspension you want, save up for it, and buy it later. Take it from me, 3 different setups and a ton of wasted cash later, i finally have what i want.

just realized you're in germantown, im there every thursday taking an accounting class at MC. You should come out to one of the get togethers we have in rockville every once in a while.

Re: little by little!!!

does anybody knows or have tryied these cheap 29.99 ebay colilovers (i'll put the link up) on stock shoks? because i thought about trying them temporarily until i save up for a good kit. i dont care about the stock shocks cuz i'll get a full kit when im ready for it. i just spended too much money on rims and new tires now saving up for a susp kit will take me a while. (full time student and worker) is it a bad temporary idea?

Re: little by little!!!

honestly you get what you pay for, DO NOT BUY THOSE!!!! i promise they will be a headache to install, maybe they wont sit on teh strut properly or they will ride like ****. if your tite on money you dont need to spend crazy on full coilover set up but for the sack of god please just save 300$ and get springs you will be much happier even without the height adjustment. As for the tires no offence but BAD call. I have 18's on my civic (love them wouldnt go any smaller, actually going to 19's) and i run a 215/35/18 and its the ****. my rims are 7.5" wide and 35+ offset and with these tires the guy selling me them didnt think they would fit and said i couldnt get my money back if they rubbed. Well anyways when they were mounted up i could pull u-turns and no rubbing anywhere. Anyways to make a long story short, i ended up putting tein flex on my ride nad slammed it so its pretty much as low as i can go before any incline becomes a mountain! with a good alignment i can still crank the wheel to the full turn and do donuts with no rubbing and my car is slammed on 18's so dont downsize to 17s, if you sell your tires buy 215/35/18 you will be happy. it will also make your car look lower with a smaller profile and rims bigger. SHitty ride no doubt but honestly my stiff suspension doesnt help. The ride is nothing you cant get used to i dont even notice, its the passangers bitching that get me more aggrivated lol. Live with the rough ride and ball out!

Re: little by little!!!

Yeah stay away from those ebay coil overs those are actually slip ons and they will give you a really bouncy crappy ride and you will be so unhappy that you wasted the time and money trying to stick those things.

Listen to Edwin (Skipbarber) don't go cheap on your suspension save up take your time and then decide what you want, and do it right. You will be a lot happier in the long run.

I took my time with my suspension and it's perfect I would not change a thing. I'm running Tokico D-Specs with progress sports spring 2" drop in the back and 1.8" in the front with front and rear sway bars. It looks good and it rides great.

If you ever want a ride to see how mine looks/handles just hit me up some time I'm just down in Arlington; Germantown is not to far of a drive for me.

uruguayanboy - i went to mcdonalds on the pike today and saw your car today by the mattress store on 355, next to BMW..it looks a hell of a lot better in person. Were you outside at some point? I was riding shotgun in my coworkers 6thgen and we saw some guys standing outside, thought one of them mightve been you.

Re: little by little!!!

dont sell em, i run 225/40/18's on my car with eibach prokits and it not only rides great but doesnt rub accept at full lock. you will need to shave down the rear fender lip al ittle but that is easy as well. check out some of my pics and attachments of my car. i really like the set up i have because i have little wheel well bgap and it isnt so low that i scrape on anything. I had the progress springs on before and they were a lot lower and i would scrape my greddy evo2 everywhere. but with the prokits its perfect.
dont change just get the right spring set up

https://www.civicforums.com/forums/h...mageuser=25416

the first few you will see are with the prokits, the older pics at the end are with the progress springs
