new rims, check out my car

Picked up these rims the other day for a pretty good deal. the thing is, the tihng is i don't think they are rota's because i had some circuit 8's before this set, and they say rota in the inside. For the most part i got a good deal for the rims, and just put some tires on em today. With my new set, it says TE37. any suggestions? i'm going to call up mackin industries tomorrow to find out. But check out my car also.

Re: new rims, check out my car

iono if they're real TE37...because real te37 dont come glossy black with a polished lip...

it most likely "te37 style"

Re: new rims, check out my car

i sure wish those knockoffs had the red lip instead of a polished lip..

car looks nice though... looks like your sitting on stock suspension? any plans for that.. you might want to drop it now, thatll really set it off

Re: new rims, check out my car

Looks good. A few things you should consider doing, IMO:

1. Paint mirrors or get some new ones that match

2. Move license plate to front bumper on a side mount. In the window just looks tacky.

3. Paint your calipers black. Red stock calipers look tacky, but painting them black really cleans up the look.

4. Clear foglights. I think yellow would look bad, with the black-and-red theme you've got going.

I think the chrome lip looks fine, at least for now. I'd worry about the other things, the lip may grow on you. I, personally, am not a fan of red lip on a red car.

Just my $0.02.

Re: new rims, check out my car

i think the car looks clean. i like the rims because you have the honda emblem on the grill and the headlights look cleared, it works imo. definitely agree about the clear fogs, but overall the car looks good.

Re: new rims, check out my car

there's a thread at honda tech where people talk about the authenticy of wheels, I don't know for sure. I would try to contact an official retailer to find out some details. And I'm pretty sure it'll say made in japan. I don't think the knock offs are allowed to do that. Not sure. Nice set though!
