Talking New wheels and tires *pics inside*

Finnally got around to getting some new wheels and tires, the one major improvment is the tires.. Holy crap these things hold to the road like glue.. I can't even get to squak them anymore they have such good traction.. Gonna get a weight reading when I replace the brakes but I figure there still lighter than stockers. Really have a good excuse to get the HFP suspension now, the wheel gap is gross....Anyway the Wheels are 18" Icon J-spec's, wrapped in Yokohoma ES100...Here's the pics, enjoy!!

Definately time for a drop. Nice wheels.

I have the same tires, they're so sticky you can hear the rock pebbles/sand flinging off as you drive.

on the tires, I've got them and they rock! Even when you do manage to get them to slip (which isn't easy), they don't squeal like the stockies, you just hear a little rubbing. Awesome!


EDIT: Oh, and nice wheels!

IvtecV6_ACCORD, do you have a rear sway bar? After the tires and wheels, that was the next thing I did that made a HUGE difference in cornering. At least I thought so.
