New Wheels!!

Ok I picked up my wheels today and they are perfect. Great shape, no corrosion, 2 tires are good, an they came with locking lug nuts ad hub rings.

But I have two questions:
the hub rings are from a 96 civic will they fit my car?
And I want to try on a rim when I get home. Do I need a torque wrench for the lug nuts or can I just hand tighten?

they should fit fine, no hub rings needed. you could use them if you hear vibration from the wheel, but thats not likely. they should bolt right on just fine

What do you mean by hand tighten? If you mean using a torque wrench by hand, you can. If you mean using your hands to bolt them on, you can't.

i'm sorry, but you can hand tighten anything to where they will stay on, if you're not a pu$$y that is

I think there is confusion by the meaning hand tighten, I do't think he means with his fingers,I think he means by hand with a lugwrench or socket and ratchet.

Lol. Another thing... The tires they came with (bald) are 215-35-r18. They look way to small, I know everyone is saying get 225-40-18 but will they look a little better? I'm not dropped yet so they look goofy

225/45/18 is the biggest i would get. but 225/40/18 is one of the most common to use on 18x7s. thats the tires i just recently bought
