Having a fast honda is like coming out of the closet. you surprise everyone at first, but in the end your still gay.

Use flat black paint next time with a No gloss clear coat. Will match perfect.

**UPDATE 06/24/2011**

Just met with the guy I got my wheels from and he sold me 4 almost brand new tires and I traded my subs for them. So I should have them put on Monday and will have updated pics and finally get my wheels back on!! YAY!..anyways so I got rid of my subs and got new tires. That is all for now, and I will put up pics of the new tires now. They are Westlake SA-05, 215/40/R17 tires.





--------------------------------------------------------------------------
Oh yeah I also painted these yesterday. Fuse box covers.

Took my wheels and new tires to the shop this morning. The very last tire had a small unfixable hole in the side wall but luckily it was early enough that the shop can order me a new tire and have it in tomorrow morning. Only $100

okay so ive been dealing with a grinding noise in the front left wheel for a few days now. Just got the chance to take off the wheels and have a look. it seems that the calipers and grinding the rotors but that doesnt seem right so i started moving the whole assemble back and fourth and it moves a little bit around the lugs but not terribly..i think i might have a wheel bearing going out but it does this on both sides. now sure if everyone's does this but ill try and take a video and show you guys what im talking about. if so then ive got 2 wheel bearings to replace. also i check the insides of my wheels and tires and dont see any signs of rubbing or scraping the tires/wheels so i know thats not the problem.
