OMG i want them! but dont think i have a spare $436 then plus shipping and then all the arch work trying to fit 8.5J of goodness under the arches :drool

Im thinking, 14x6 front and 14x7 on the rear, dont mind a bit of arch pulling and rolling to get them to fit. Hopefully going lower at some point so it wont look strange with big ass tyres and arch gap, cant be having that!

Also reallly tempted to paint it matte black :smash

You want aftermarket shocks to go with them though as the standard shocks won't do much at all with springs with more than a 40mm drop...

Lows first, always!
Even standard cars on standard steelies look bitchin' cool when slammed!
My old EP civic for example...


Although it did look cooler when a bit lower on bigger wheels...

lol nah, i wanna keep this kit in full so i can sell it on when i upgrade :P
Got my old job back so will start making some money that i can throw at it soon
Found somewhere closer to me that does banded steels so i can deliver and pick them up myself and save myself £50 getting them delivered and picked up even though its a bit more expensive to get them done they are done, the seams flattened down and then primered so all I need now is £220 to buy steels and get them banded and a bit of petrol to get them there and back :D
