My new shoes

Well i just got my shoes and springs in today, i have to wait for the tires by Monday, but i have to wait for my installation of everything by the end of this coming week, i just received a notice from the complex i live that i have to park my car in the streets for a whole week, so i kinda iffy in putting them on right now, which is pissing me off, but overall im happy!!!







I have a box inside my house which the following pics come from.

can't wait to see what they look like on your car. My roommate was gonna get those for his TSX, but the lip was too big without fender flares. So he got something else instead.

They are pretty heavy ~20lbs I believe. Looks like my rims kind of but mine have rivets and different pattern. Why 18x7.5 you should have gotten wider rims.

Can't wait to see, I'm gonna be picking up those Tanabe springs either NF210 or the GF210, only difference is that the GF210 has a higher spring rate which makes it stiffer. He could probably have gone with 18x8 or even 18x8.5 or 18x9, but 18x7.5 is a safe fitment, don't wanna be rolling or pulling fenders is my guess.

ok guys, sorry for my delayed in posting pics... i couldnt take pics today, ended up doing couple of urgent things afterwork, which took my day light away, i will wash my car tomorrow and post better ones, but as off now i post my crappy camera phone pics.

fyi- orignally i wanted 19's, but this manufacturer didnt offer 19's. They had 18x7.5 and 18.5. Both had an offset of 42. However, first of all i choose the 7.5 because it had a slightly larger lip. Secondly, i got this rims, wheels, springs, and labor to install springs all for JUST $1100. So i rather take advantage of the BARGAIN i got!

O YEAH, one more thing... i didnt post pictures earlier because i was at work! hehe, i was getting a client that has a accord coupe to check this site out since there is alot of knowledge withing this site.

ok this are the pics i took the first day i had them on.

Wow...it turned out great, the drop the size of the wheels & tires...I'm definately picking up a set of those Tanabe's NF210, maybe the GF210. Would the drop look like that if the set-up was on a Sedan V6 model? I'm thinking it might since a 4dr. is slightly longer.
