It's clstypeslow's old old car. Haha I think two people owned it after he sold it and before I bought it. You did a great job on the kit.

Nice, the wheels look great. Not a big fan of yellow foglight film, but to each his own.

Yeah but the blue on your color I think might be strange looking. Don't get me wrong I'm all for crazy colors but I just don't think it will mix well with the car color.

I think that lighter colors would def benefit the car. Maybe teal a goldish color?

It depends on how much you can get the kit for, and if you plan on doing the work yourself, or paying someone to do it. If done right with the kit, materials, paint. $1,000+ give or take.

Keep in mind the further you push the wheels out the lower of a profile tire or more of a stretch tire you will need to run to avoid rubbing the outer side of the fenders.

Also with the 5mm spacer you might be kicking youself in your ass because it's not nothing you will even see as far as increasing your stance.
5mm is less than 1/4".
I would do 10mm minimum in the front.
What's your wheels offset now ?
The tint job looks clean.
How much it cost you ?

You think I can get away with 10mm in the front with 225/45/17? I could adjust the camber I suppose. I know I can for the rears. My wheel offset is +45 I think. My wheels are 17x8. Tint was $130.

I'm not the wheel master but,
10mm would sit your front wheels flush.
Depending on how low your drop is I supose.Is weather it would fit good.
If your tires are already tucked under your fenders then running more camber would be a must with no rub.
If I was going for a stanced look with your wheel I would do a 205mm wide front tire. It would give you all the extra clearance you will need for the 10mm,even possibly 15mm with a little camber. 15 would get the stanced look in the front.

You have the 5/10 on the way I would definitly try the 10 in the front.

Well these tires have ALOT of tread left on them so I have to deal with them. I think ill try the 10mm up front might have to raise my car up a little up front. and 12mm for the rear. What you think about that? Thanks for the help by the way.

I had my CR-Kais flush - not hella flush since thats not my style - but flush.

They were 18x8.5 +43mm running 235/40s. They stuck out ~8.3mm further then what youre currently running, assuming your wheels are in fact +45mm. I wasn't slammed like you though, but the front didnt require any mods but the rear needed to have the fenders rolled and the tabs trimmed.

I guess I will turn this into my build thread.

Last night while driving home from the movies I ran over a HUGE rock and cracked my oil pan. FML.




Picking her up from the shop tomorrow.

Also, I plan on painting my wheels teal. Im getting tired of white all my previous cars have had white wheels. Heres a photoshop chop of how it will look. C/C Welcomed.

Also, did lime green to. Dont like it as much as teal.
