They are cell phone pics, so don't hate. I got these for a STEAL of a deal, so I couldnt turn them down. Now Im not sure if I like them. Im getting springs to lower the car about 1 1/2 inches, which I think will make it look better. But my main concern is Im more looking to have my car like "clean and nice" and no so much "sporty and fast". Being they are Enkei Racing wheels....Im getting the "sporty and fast" vibe. Am I making any sense? What do you think...

They are 17s. Yet everyone sees them and thinks they are smaller. I think its the lip that makes it look smaller. And the fact that its not lowered yet.

I have 17" EV5s that I also got for a semi-steal, they make me want to crank the coilovers down some more. I still like them far better than what I traded for them though.

Wheels or not, there is nothing "fast" about our cars. =P
Unfortunately, Im beginning to agree. Im not going to make a firm decision until its lowered.
Ladies and gentlemen... suspension before wheels. Always!

There's nothing fast about a stock Civic either. But every 16 year old will get some cheap five star "racing" wheel and think they are the next star of the Fast and Furious.....Not really trying to fall into that comparison. I'd rather just look like I have "nice shit".

And yes, suspension first would have been preferable. But I am broke. Wheels just happened to become available first. :)

I ordered the Tein S springs yesterday. It won't be long before it's lowered. I neeeeeed to paint the rust on my brakes and calipers too. Looks terrible.
