Love ebp!
Clean car man...
but what's up with the lip on the rear wheel?
Looks like it sticks out further than the tire?

yea actually it does. tryin to do somethin new. tire of seein all these low width wheel. like i said just tryin somethin new. im tryin to get my lip to touch my fender well with as much negative camber. it will look sick at the end. right now the rear is 18x9.5 but imma go with either 17x9 or 16x8 soon. it all depends

any issues w/ rubbing in the rears (with the "maybe rims)?

fastnite

its a really big issue. i gotta add more negative camber and i might have to roll my fender but not trying. i'll prob think of another method but for now the car with the maybe wheel is not driveable since the rub is pushing hard against the fender.

Honda Civic's cannot pull off the staggered look.

Go back to OEM Si's or get genuine wheels if you really want to spend money on wheels.

haha thats the problem now a day. i dont want to go down the street and see the same car as me and then we go compare who have the cleaner si's. Dont u think oem and jdm is already at its max. you see the same thing over and over and over again. But its just me. everyone have there own like and dislike. oh btw. the stagger look is not just for look. it will soon be rwd with s2k power f20

Actually, they can.

Go back to OEM Si's or get genuine wheels if you really want to spend money on wheels.

Take your own advice.

How about you all shut up and support some change for once. Yeah, that's right I said it. I like the last wheels but no bigger than 16's. Do some 16x8's with 10f 20r off. I know exactly what you mean about the lip-fender deal. With enough camber you can make it happen, you just gotta get the right offset as well. With a 16x8 you could stretch a 195 but I wouldn't recommend it. Just do a 205, it should still show rim lip and than you can fit it just how you want it. Props for not being influenced by all these wannabe JDM wangsters
