I am getting omni power coil overs to slam my car all the way to 4" and put it on 16x7 rota GT3s in royal red, I think it would look really clean,but they come with a +40mm offset will it rub in the rear?

you sure you can find any good 16" tires that are the correct diameter?

Yeah some Yokohama ADVAN tires 225/40/16
that aint even remotely close to the size you need. stock diameter is 641.5mm. youre lookin at 580mm.

641.5d = 2014.31c
580d = 1821.2c

basically, when youre speedo says youre goin 60mph, youll really be goin 54mph. your suspension drop of 4" coupled with your tiny tire size is going to make the actual chassis drop 5.23", and your car will then be undriveable, especially with the ridiculous amount of negative camber youre going to have unless you invest in a camber kit. the size tire that youre going to need is going to be either a 215/55 or 225/55. luckily, there seems to be a good selection of 215/55's and 225/55's.

btw, what type of yokohama advan? and are you sure they even make any in that size, cause i dont think they do. personally, if you want a yokohama summer tire, id go with the es100 (good bang per $). if you insist on allseason, advan s.4..

lol I said 225/40 not thinking at all... After I posted I thought wtf that is some skinny tires for 16s"Think before you post". I found ADVAN S4s for 116 a pop 225/55/16, that what I meant to say in my previous post. I was going to invest in a camber kit no matter what size rims I would have on my car. I was thinking going with 18s black on black but everybody seem to have that. So I decided to be different more JDM , Rota GT3s (GAB auto sport replicas) with Royal Lip and Red powder coat. Do you think that would look good on a black coupe?

i think it can look good...but you really need the negative camber to fit the lip needed to get it to look good...i'd say +40 would look ok...but the lower offset the better it will look...camber can allow you to fit the lower offset...if you are willing to roll the fenders...



need i say more?

They weight less than 15 pounds I believe, and +40mm is only offset those come in. Unless I get the GAB autosports authenic wheels(GT3 is a knock off) they come in a lower offset but you have to order outta japan. I think 16s would be original, and unique comparing to everyone having their 18s or 19s, because the bigger is not always the better.
Is it still possible to oder Omni Power from V6p store?

Here is a pic of the 16' rota gt3's on my car with 205/55/16 tires.
noice! idk why i love tiny wheels with big sticky tires. maybe its cause theyre efficient. maybe cause i love can-am cars and the 60's, 70's, and 80's of le mans. lol

I like how your car looks pure JDMness, and I also fell in love with that red DC2 Teg... I'm trying to make my car as much JDM looking, even though it is a such hard task. I'm still wondering if I can fit 01 JDM Civic foglights in 02 bumper holes!

Thankyou for the comment.

Umm are you on a budget? Cause there is an OEM foglight kit meant for your car on eBAY right now. Here's the link OEM 01-02 coupe foglights .

As far as the modding for fitting the 01-03 civic foglights...the shape of your bumper does not look like it would be able to accomodate it. But you can try. I wish you could accomplish that...it would look hella nice.

That is a nice ebay find for those headlights pretty cheap. Though I dont like the boring white oem fogs...is there a way to swap the bulbs to JDM yellows, and what type of bulb do fog lights take?

Idk maybe h11 not to sure. You can change the bulbs or put rock blocker film. Good luck. Buy em though it would be so much less of a headache.
