Had my car serviced today and I told the honda guy to leave the hubcaps off when they rotated my wheels. Honestly I think the car looks better without the hubcaps on. It was dark before I could get some pictures but i'll post them tomorrow.

i'm saving up to get some ultraleggera's or something similar but lighter. until then i'll be rockin the steelies. no offense to the dude who painted his hub caps but i can't imagine that looking better than steelies in person. trust me i don't think i look sweet riding around with steel wheels, it's just a money issue. but i think it's more important for me to like the look than everyone else. it looks kinda track car'ish to me now.

buy Si wheels.
I personally just painted my hubcaps and roll in those till i get the SI wheels i ordered painted and what not.
I just bought a set of Si takeoff wheels/tires on EBAY for $800 shipped, I can't wait to install with my H&R sport springs and Progress rear sway bar. I personally think setting up a decent suspension is the MOST important thing everyone should do. Spoilers/Turbo/SC/Nos-all just for show (unless you do 100+mph every week). Nice suspension basics and good tires RULE!!

haha too bad it'd be illegal to put lights on the top and vynil down the side. it'd be fun to be a cop for a day.
