I had the original wheels for quite sometime before I made the jump to spend some money on wheels. One thing I wanted was to make sure I didn’t spend too much on the set-up as I also needed rubber. I have always been keen on weight and function of parts. So i had wanted some lightweight wheels. Naturally the price of such items is starting at about $1000usd…..unless I bought them used.
Also around the same time Espilar springs were installed.
The sizes are 18×8.5 in the front and 18×9.5 rear . The tires are 235/40 front and 255/40 rear, all with out spacers.
The rear seems to fit somewhat snug
This set-up is promising in the future events I will attend…fingers crossed
I seem to pass this civic every mon-fri when I walk to class. I also noticed something interesting about the vehicle and possibly the owner. Plati-Dip. Yes the owner sprayed Plasti-Dip on his/her wheels to their liking. For those not in the know of Plasti-Dip, it is a rubber based formulated paint that when applied to some surfaces and dried, it can be peeled off simply by pulling in a few swoops. I will get into detail about Plasti-Dip in the near future as I do not want to take away from the current project at hand.
The dedication and feeling one has towards a car seems superficial more times than not. To the owners it is an expression of them to the point of owning a certain make and model is not enough. Even if money is on a very limited budget they find a way to express themselves.
Here we have what appears to be a stock looking civic minus, possible, suspension work……
And here is the Plasti-Dip work on same wheels and, appears to be, suspension work…..
To use what you can and on your budget is what this individual has done without a care for those who may question such a method (putting removable paint on something that will see the elements first hand). One must remember that this vehicle belongs to this individual and is catered to him and nobody else for whatever reason. Just by the looks of it, it seems as though this vehicle and its owner will not part ways for some time.
