I definitely think 16's with a drop is as clean as it comes, same with 15's. but IMO....17's are just too much, a tad too ostentatious for me.

There's no such thing as a stupid question; just stupid people asking questions.

do you like how it looks? if so, it shouldn't matter what others think, if not, rectify it.

Actually, no. I don't like the way it looks, that's why I don't post it up that much, just can't afford the coilovers and struts I need.

No I long to be dropped but i need new struts and I don't wanna do it the cheap way with Ebay springs. The car already rides like crap, I don't want that to continue with $30 coil overs.

If you're going to do it, do it right. And that's gonna take a lot more than $30.

the only reasons to go bigger than 15" are for fitting bigger brakes on your car, or because the tire size you want wont come in 15"

also, with bigger wheels, bigger tires are much more expensive, so are you really saving and conserving your money by buying bigger wheels?

in my opinion, big wheels look stupid on our cars unless youve got some big ass stoptechs with 13" rotors or something along those lines

the oem wheels for integras are not light, i have rota slipstreams i picked up for 280$ used in mint condition, and they weigh 12.6lbs per wheel. I plan on buying some enkei rpf1's somewhere down the road, they weigh 9.6lbs per wheel, thats a lightweight cast wheel if there ever was one.

the benefit of having smaller wheels gives you better turn in response, and like someone else said, less rotational mass, your car will have less difficulty getting the car moving

and less difficulty getting the car to stop, and it'll ride better with the stock size. plus I love the look of my 15 inchers.


Thanks tegger!

Everyone's got some nice pics! Keep 'em coming!

Quick question, what's considered a light-weight wheel?

mag wheels are the lightest you'll ever see. some weigh as little as 6 pounds. single piece forged aluminum wheels are light also. once you dabble in multi-piece wheels is where a lot of weight comes from. my OZ's are 3 piece and weigh 44 lbs a piece with rubber....but they are sooo dam pretty

There's no such thing as a stupid question; just stupid people asking questions.
