Number 1 i think would look the best out of the 3 the black spokes would go with the car an the chrome lip would really set em off an help the wheels stand out

Same 1 or 3 would look great. IMO they are too busy, I like a simpler rim with fewer spokes. Black on black is always good IMO, but I would say 3 if I had to pick.

I think I like the black/machined lip best.

Though #2 actually has a good chance. I found a first gen spd3 with them on it today and took a pic.

Number 2.

Black and silver wheels are so played out around here. So very very very played out. I have seen a black and silver wheel in some combo on every kind of vehicle you can imagine. I usually see about 25+ a day. And do you know what? THEY ARE ALL FUGLY!!


keep it simple and clean. Make it look nice without making it a Pep-Boys Ricer.

3!!!! The gunmetal is dark enough to give a little more of an aggressive look and they don't look like something found on every damn civic on the road. Black with chrome lip looks ok but it's overdone

understandable, when i first got my integra everyone was giving me **** to lower it and i had the springs at my house but waited 3 mos to put them on because i was working in the vineyards at the time which required driving on dirt roads every day

im suprised they dont make a drop for that thing yet though ... although my buddy used to have an 04 corolla s (bought brand new) and it took forever for him to get his eibach pro kit cause so many people ordered em ... best part when it finally got here his car sat in my driveway for 2 days on blocks cause we couldnt figure out how to get the back struts off haha my dad was pissed.

Edit: Figured id tell the story of how i got the integra springs .... friend of mine was upside down in his loan on a 2000 civic si and they share the same springs, so before the car got repoed he sold all the good **** off it, i ended up getting polished 99-00 civic si rims on brand new low pros and newspeed race spings for $375 .... everyone else that knew him hated me cause i was the first one to come up with the money ... the bank musta been pissed if they ever figured how much **** he parted off the car, it had civic dx interior and gauges, the b16 was swapped with a dx motor, and the front end was an unpainted 96-98 front, same with the taillights, bald *** tires on 96 integra steel wheels and hubcaps (off my car) i feel sorry for anyone who buys that thing knowing nothing about hondas and figuring its an si
