Re: what do ya think of these bad boys?

they are nice looking, but will take alot of fab work to make sure they fit, i rock 8inch wide wheels but they are only 15's, definantly gonna have some rubbing issues, and you will need to invest on adjustable suspension with nice struts. they are nice looking though

Re: what do ya think of these bad boys?

Doesn't look too bad - but check the offset before going too far. The seller has said yes they should fit to every car questioned - none of which I believe have an offset anywhere near the ludicrously high offset required for fitment to a Prelude.

Re: what do ya think of these bad boys?

i think they would look savage on the lude but i'm not sure if they'd be worth all the rubbing issues and stuff...

Re: what do ya think of these bad boys?

Agree with pretty much everyone here. They look like they may be a little too big. I would drop down an inch. Your losing performance and ride quality with 18". Even 17" is too large, but its not insane like 18's are.

I do like the color and style though, and I think they would look nice on your lude. And just like everyone else was saying, go check the fitment guide to see what offset you need and if they'll rub or not.
