Just like most of you, I've probably spent too much (time & money) on upgrades. Here are the latest; added the OEM Ground Effects kit (except for front bumper) and chromed the Acura/Honda Silver Star 5-spoke 17" wheels.

Wheel closeup, pictures don't do it justice. Will try to reshoot another day in better light and angle.

ok i hate you
I like the matching look of the gun metal gray Silver Stars with you CG, looks much better than it did against my PW.

BTW, did your Silver Stars come with 4 new air pressure stickers?
Can't figure out where they belong yet, have you?

Also, have you noticed even though the 5 spokes are the same size as the OEM (7 spokes), the recommended rear air pressure is 1 lb less.
Silver Stars = 32PSI/Frt - 29PSI/Rr
OEM 7 Spokes = 32PSI/Frt - 30PSI/Rr

Anyone have a clue why?

That's really odd... perhaps has to do with the bead shape.

Anyway, the stickers should go over the ones on your doorjamb... DOT requirement for OEM parts.

I thought so too, you would think the pressures would all be the same?

Anyway, thanks for the heads up on the stickers, they just don't match up with the OEM sticker. If I put the new one on, it covers up other data. Anyway, I just put it next to it. I guess even Honda can't do everything right? (LOL)

LOL... yeah I guess just put them next to the OEM and maybe sharpie out the old ones... doesn't hurt cuz that's what a lot of non-OEM mechanics (or tire shops) use to set tire pressure.

Had another thought about pressure... perhaps the five stars have a different mass, which affects unsprung weight, which affects the resonance characteristics of the suspension. Lowering the tire pressure may be necessary to quell a harmonic. Sounds anal enough for Honda to come up with...
