I wanna go 17's tho, how much they weigh in 17's? got a link to a pic?

and I can get the tantrums for 650 and khumo ecsta 711 or 712 for 60 each, or I can spend about 90 and get better tires. so for around the same price I can have 17's. plus i think ive seen them before and dont like them, but cant remember what they look like.

They're not flashy or anything, but the 16's weigh 13.5 pounds each. At this particular site, I don't think they offer 17's, but you could get a set of 16's with Falken Azenis (awesome tires) for $950. Click the "wheel info" and "wheel and tire packages" links to see specs and prices. Hope this helps.

I am not sure if the Racing Hart Z5000 (in any color) is the same wait as, say the racing heart CP-10 and CP-8 wheels, but those wheels are suppose to weight 1 lbs per inch. So the 17" rim is 17 lbs, 18" rim 18lbs, etc. Of course, once you mount the tire, balance it, and add the air, it get a bunch heavier, but thats the same with any wheel, the tire and air add more weight. So, I know the CP-10 (discountinued, good luck, lol) and CP-8 are 17 lbs in 17". I'm not sure where to find them anymore. I checked wheelmax's website, and all they had now was knock-off racing hart...aka fakes. They stopped carrying them. The Z5000 I think is a simlier weight to those 2, and they all should come in a few different colors. BTW, your car looks nice, it was really clean looking. Why did you have to sell it? I admitt, I am notra great fan of chrome altezza's or the red A, but hey, it works on a white car (or silver). I think though, the car looked so clean, all red tails would rock.
Just go
Here is Dazz motorsports website, this link is for the "RH Eveltion" racng harts, and the regular racing harts. Everywhere else I went only had knock-off's. This is the actual distributor, so your good here.

I dont really like those slipstreams, even if they are light. plus I like 17's alot more I like the S7's in silver though. I like my sokudo 8's alot but i dont know how much they weigh since they came on my civic with tires mounted already. I dont wanna treuse them though sinec there are too many chips in the gunmetal part of the rim. and one lip is pretty scuffed up.

I have seen altezzas that look just liike those on my car but the clear was red, but I dont know how they'd look. but i was thinking of them maybe.

and i sold it cuz I only had it for a month and had been pulled overe for center of headlights too low, blue headlights, modified exhaust, illegal; taillights(but then i turned off my lights and said "se the red reflectors" and he said "oh, well hold on a minute" and came back and gave me a speeding ticket before he had even told me he puled me over for that.

and i also got a yticket going with the flow but i was the only car not stock on the freeway around me.

but I have learned i get tickets in whatever i drive so im ready to go back ot the integra.

Yea, the S7's would look pretty slick on an integra. I say, get those. If they are a little heavier than you wanted....umm...oh well, lol...it'll look nice on a white teg. Also, I like that red tailight surround idea. I say do that, it still keeps a nice clean,red look, but looks different than stock, and it won't detract from the clean lines of the car like chrome would (or dark on white). As for getting pulled over, damn man, thats some crappy luck. Where in Washington do you live? They must be kinda anal over their. Good luck with the new teg, hopefully they'll be nicer this time

yeah, the cops suck here, i live on an island, lots of theft and drugs and almost none of oit is ever broken up. but of course theyll give tickets like crazy. if you drive at night they will just follow you for the fun of it, they dont do it overtown though, even on the north end of the island I was driving and passed a cop at 3 AM and i was the only car out and he didnt even look at me.

the thing that really pisses me off though is that i got pulled over 2 times by this cop and get a ticket both times, then i get home from my vacation, trunk popped and passenger door opened. look in to find my new panasonic cd player gone, amp mtx sub and all my cds gone.
call the cops and they come look at the cra ask what was taken and leave, no prints or anything, i know the kid would have top be in the system for them to show up but I later found out who it was and I KNOW the kids prints had to be on file and if they woulda just run the damn prints they probably would have mafde the arrest before the kid had time to sell my shit. and i understand in a big city with rapes/murders/and shit like that and they dont have time but that sort of thing doesnt happen here and they might as well spend their donut eating in front of chevron hanging out time doing some fucking work

For wheels I suggest Konig Heliums (btw they are available as 15s and 17s-bronze and silver colors)...they are light,cheap and attractive. Make sure you get what YOU want though.

I pretty much like 7 and 8 spoke rims, but skinny spokes, the 5 or 6's look too plain for me and any mroe than 8 seems top be too muchj, like hides everythign behind the wheels, i like them really open so when i get that nice AEM big brake kit they'll be shown off good

also anyone know how much velox vx8's weigh, they look like my sokudos but without those damn fake rivets/bolts that can either fal;l out or make them a b!tch to get really clean. the auction says lightweight but doesnt give an actual figure and i know how advertising is so...

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eB...tem=2430669738

the 17's are 760 with mounted/balanced 205/40/17's (make not listed) and tuner lugs. i put the link for the 18's cuz i think the pic shows them much better.

yikes...

Just to clarify things a bit on swaps....just about any motor can be fast if you have enough money to invest. Im running a stock civic HX motor and if anyone knows about them they are complete crap, but im aiming for 15.8 on a stock tuned motor. A friend has an all motor B16 pushing into 12's...

My point is that if you have enough money and the right tuning skills, any motor is a possibility whether its a turbo LS or an all motor SOHC.

well, yeah, bu8t the money yuo would have to invest into a 1.5 SOHC to hit 14's, you could just swap in a stokc B18C1 with bolt ons and hit the same times cheaper, and with the extra dough, be even faster. but If you got alot of money and just want to do it with your stock engine just to show that it can be done then that would be the way to go but id start out wiht a better base than a D15

motor

its only a matter of personal preference....also think about the money that could be invested in parts and tuning versus buying that CRVtec swap. Anyone who has built a GOOD CRVtec knows that it takes some bank to get everything.

B20B longblock - 900 shipped at most
VTEC head - say 350
VTEC ECU - say 150
VTEC harness - say 150
oil lines/plug/tee, etc... - 100
10 minutes on the drill press - free
labor - free if you do it yourself
knock sensor - dont know - say 100
VTEC oil pump - dont know - say 100 again

and dont you need a crank fluxuation sensor as well? lets say 100

so then theres a little under 2K, and ive seen everything cheaper than what Ive listed except for the longblock and the last 3 that i havent looked up the price of.

anyways, I personally dont think that the 2k into a 1.5 would be able to keep up with the stock CRVTEC, unless the 2k went towards boost. I mean 2k would buy a cam/upgraded valvetrain, high cr pistons, rods, and boltons. add another grand and you could do whatever you want with it, and then put that same thousand more into the CRVTEC for some 10.5:1's and boltons, and SMOKE the 1.5.
