Never bent one b4...at first, I thought I was looking at the RSX Type-S rims when I saw your car
Yeah theyre kinda similar... they are the 05 EP3-R5 Si HFP wheels... 17's

how fast were you goin?
Between 55-60... but it was at the bottom of a curve... a van came across the yellow line on the road and i had to go off the road to not hit it... the pot hole wasnt on the road, but on the gravel shoulder (I live in the country so the shoulders arent paved)

Last winter, I did the same to two HFP rims on one side simultaneously, along with ruining the tires. I feel your pain... :sadwavy:

How much does it weigh? You must be hauling ass now.
Yeah dude I'm like 50 pounds lighter which means i have at least 25 more horsepower. And soon im gonna debadge it and that will make it like 10 pounds lighter which means like 5 more horsepower. Plus, I already have the sweet 8thcivic stickers on there which adds at least 50. So....

140+25+5+50= 220 horsepower

man, im faster than Si's now :laughing:

hahaha
