haha thanks man! It all depends what you are going for. If you do not mind your car standing out from the rest then id say go with them. But it is very very common to see these wheels.

haha Ive seen it. I thought about picking it up and customizing some stuff but I am not really looking to have a kit right now. I like the no kit look. Until i get bored i guess....

good however I think the spring rates could be different. Going to probably put on some swift or eibach springs to hold me over until I go air some day.

Few that was a lot to respond to! haha thanks again everyone!

a small update on my car.


So I gave in and decided to go with air. I acquired a AirRex set up and went from there. I took some time to put this together as I decided to do a custom install however it was not going to be your typical flashy show ready install however it would be some what clean and more of a reliable set up for daily use.

Here is the last photo taken of my car with static coil overs.





for my trunk set up I was just going to mount everything on a board and do some custom wiring (since I work at Rywire) and some simple hard lines.

here you can see the beginning of the wiring. Concentric twisting going on here thanks to my man Der.



fast forward a bit and here is the final product before it went in the trunk. My friend Aaron from Ballade sports did the hard lines and pretty much helped with the entire install.




here is a pic right after we finished the install.




one thing I was worried about was the front cambering in a little more to match the rear. I do not like super aggressive camber however I do like some camber and I like it to match from front to back. Future plans are to get some arms to fix the caster issues on these cars since that is preventing me from driving as low as i would like. At that point I will also get the camber pretty even front to rear.



here is a pic of my car at Wekfest LA. I will post more as I take more.






I really want to give a huge shot out to Chris aka Chrispy for always being helpful and giving me great advice !!!

Looking clean sir. I have an appointment with Elroy at AutoFashion to get my fenders shaved on Wednesday . I hear a lot of good things from Primer auto body, a lot of my friends go to him for work. Im really picky with who works on my car and the friends who owned Sinful Enhancement auto body unfortunately closed up shop. They did all my body work on my rsx and their quality is impeccable.

wow looks very good indeed, I am debating what to do to lower scratchy a little, coils or springs def not going too low since I am riding on 20" staggered.

what coils did you had initially?
