All comments welcome THANKS!

Pics came out great. Car looks real clean. The rims don't look bad, but there is something about them that just doesn't flow with the rest of the car IMO. If you were to paint them what color were you thinking?

i completely agree! they just don't flow i think it may be the studs in the outerside of the rim. And as for a color i was going to go with black :S or i was really interested in the bronze though i think it would look good.

That picture really makes me second guess on not picking up the jdm red badge

The JDM Badge is da bomb baby :p I love my JDM badge on my black baby!
I love the look of that car....my rims are HFP but I would go with the bronze anyday if I had my time back....maybe eventually I will take the plunge for new rims...its a disease!!

Btw, Car looks great...really clean! Flows alittle off..you know like when a woman puts on nice sexy black dress and on her feet she wears white shoes!!! fashion No-No....Your baby needs some sexy shoes to go with her outfit :D I have to talk in my female terms to explain my thoughts ;)
Can't wait to see what you do....

love the pictures. i went into halifax and drooled over it the other day lol. cant wait for christmas :D

as for the rims, i wouldn't bother painting them. i would sell them imho. but just to let you know (if you didn't already know) no matter what rim you pick, it will always look off riding at 4x4 status. your rims would look semi decent if you lowered it 1.5".

as for colors. white, black, bronze

here's one of the nicest NBP civic's on this site imo. nice and clean.





i believe the rims are a 18x9 +35 (or 17x9 +35) enkei rpf1 powdercoated white.

I'm partial to white wheels but Janet's post of those beauty bronze Volks (TE 37's?) has me thinking to go with bronze. Either way good luck with your decision.

wow.. those white rims look so good :)
I cant afford new rims right now either, so sometime over the winter, after i get my steelies on, im just gonna get my stock 16's powder coated..
Anywhere around here that does a good job powder coating rims, with somewhat good prices?

Precision Powder Coating Inc. 24 Simmonds Drive in Burnside. They have a website you can check out. I can't exactly remember but I think it was like $70/75 a rim. Turned out great.
