Tuesday !

Well the day is near !
This Tuesday Iam getting my HFP rims with Falken 245/40/19" tires from the dealer who shocked me and id price matching Amazon .1
and 2 minus the 98$ shipping so 1700$ otd. ?I am still in shock
Oh yea for a 2011 accord coupe v6 exl

Bought it right after Christmas as a present for myself .
I traded my 06 Lexus is 250 fully loaded and moded with al F-sport parts and tsw rims etc.

Well the dealer loved my car so we played the #S game for about an hour , then I finally drove it , needless to say I was disappointed it had more pitch than a Cady. So I said no thank it rids slopy and I wanted white with black anyway but this was the closest to what I wanted a fully loaded w/ nav model ..

So in closing They threw in the HFP suspension ,Installed my 3 piece camber arms when I got them (free} ,threw in the body side moldings ,splash guards and a 55k bumper to bumper mile warranty
Its certified so it has the 100k powertrain .

Well after I get these rims ill post some pics I hope they don't look funny with such a wide tire 245/40/19 its still x8 and my 18x8s are 235/45/s

just have to wait and see how the whole HFP package comes together





This is how all the coupes should come from the factory!!!!!
Handeling is like butter ,so smooth it feels like electric p/s
And taking an onramp turn at 75 is nothing no pitch with the 245/40s over the 235/45 the difference is amazing .
Anyone ?ing getting the HFP kit {well suspension and rims and tires } Go for it you will not regret it , Looks and drives like a whole new machine

The 11 accord coupe v6 . Coming from my lexus it felt like I was on air ride suspension and had more pitch then any coupe I had ever been in on OEM suspension/struts
As soon as the HFP struts were installed it rode like I was hoping it would stock!!
Plus it looks rediclious stock . I was able to fit all 5 fingers under the front fender well !!! now its down to 2 fingers and hopefully 1 with the 19s

Don't understand your post . I just started on here yesterday wasn't aware I had to post a certain way or place ? Whatever I am
just looking forward to getting these rims . So sick of oversized Vossen and Avants 20x10 they look lame with the tires so stretched like they could just pop off !!

Also people with only 4cyl 190 hp losing 20hp due to wheels ????

even the v6 its a killer on the axles and all the suspension . your not investing just losing money where as actual Honda parts sell for what you get them for years later....find a used set of HFP rims they can be rashed and still sell with tires for 1200 $


The proof is in the threads from acura forums to civic and accord forums .Plus its the only great looking wheel with a 55 offset ,perfect hub centric ring, and doesn't effect your warranty either . No having to swap back to stock when you do have blown axles or a noisy suspension ..

Also if you look on a lot of these forums the people who join the slammed club and paid 30k for thir car almost new ,then dumped another 10k into it with rims ,audio ,etc cant even get 15k today .
Face it todays Hondas are NOT holding value as previous gen.s did .

Possible because they are American cars now made in Marysville OH.

Um, did you say 1700 for HFP 19's!?
Theyre 600 for all 4 shipped on eBay. Plus 800$ for tires tops.
I put Kumho ecsta 4x 245 40 19 on mine,
went through those in roughly a year
too many bubbles.
Ended up switchin to the Kumho Platinum LX

EDIT: Just chked ebay, theyre $250 each now. lol
Last month I saw em for $650/set/shipped.

In the case of air conditioning is not turned on, the air conditioning vent in the car with the wind automatically when the car stopped when there is no wind, feel the wind blowing in directly from the outside.Why?

The vent is open unless you select recirculate. Even with the hvac off, you still must select recirculate to stop the flow of air.
