i got the car from the second owner for $3500 he also included the stock seats and hx rims with new snow tires and a new driverside quartel panel cause it has about a inch of rust.....also the title from which the motor came out of.....it had 115k before the rebuild....the shell has 150k

Anyone have a sugestion on what wheels i should get......i know im going to go with the function form coilover set up.....for wheels i want a similar set up as childs ( size wise).....i dont know if i should go xxr

i saw the enkei 92's......i think this is probably what im going to get..........through me some suggestions i dont want to spend more then $800 on a wheel setup ( not including tires)

Yeah I'm going to take my time I figured if the previous owner took the time then I shall also..... One if the biggest selling points for me was that it came with a paper trail not someone just saying that it has this that and the other he gave me receipts pictures extra parts...... I'm really happy I came across this car... Thanks and stay tuned in real work should jump off in a couple of months

You're lucky to have a girl that knows her s**t about cars/Honda's, I wish mine did. Are you just looking for bbs reps or other rims?
