New 18's

Well, I could not turn this down...I sold the 17's that I picked up a month ago(nice but not exactly what I wanted) and sold my factory blades that were pretty much shot and a "little" bit of cash(about $200 out of pocket) and now I have these near brand new 18's with under 2000KMS on them(the rims still have the original sticker on the inside of them) To top it all of the guy threw in a set of C/F eyelids for free too

what do you guys and gals think?

Yes, I know that it looks like the big wheel that honda never made but I'll post more pics in the spring when I get the adjustable suspension I plan on buying over the winter installed

The rims and tires tuck into the wells nicely once lowered.

Just thought that I would share.

I threw in a couple of before and after pics too.

Edit: I will be painting the factory callipers shortly and am on the lookout for a baer big brake kit with some nice slotted or cross drilled rotors

Re: New 18's

damn is that 30 series rubber? I thought you lived in snow country?

Congrats on the purchase, how much you think you can get for those eyelids?

why put off today what you can wake up late and forget to do tomorrow.

Re: New 18's

I think that they are 215/35zr18's not 100% though. I am planning on putting the eyelids on eventually...not right now as it is getting cold out and I don't think that the 2 sided tape would work really good in the winter. They normally go for around $35 to $50.

I am only going to have them on for a couple more weeks, then on with the 15's for the winter

Re: New 18's

Before you invest in your big brake kit, make sure that you'll be able to fit your 15" steels on(not likely)

Re: New 18's

I realize I never actually said congrats in my first post
I like the wheels though, darker anodizing + simple design looks good on white cars, the lude doesen't get much love from many wheels but those do seem very fitting.
