The lude

Needs TLC Cosmetic customization to my liking

Its winter here though up in Kenosha, Wisconsin

Need some help on some good places/sites to get such things.

I know of sites that could help but more is appreciated...
I know of:

password JDM
Tire Rack
eBay (Don't Really want to use)
Speedquest in Waukegan, IL
and some tinters in milwaukee freferred from my uncle who drives a SVT

Mods will be on hold till warmer season arrives...so i have time to research.

Mods Id like to do:

Tint...40/45%
Rims...17s? Show me some sites to look at good ones, prefer to be not silver rims on the black lude.
Lowering?...Adjustable would be good since kenosha roads suck, whats a good set up?
OEM Lip Kit...just a thought...probably not though.
New Headunit for the stereo
Possibly a 10 or 12 sub. (Audio Connection I know of up here)(amazon.com)
Possibly a respray of paint

All I can think of at the moment.

Whats some good sites to look for rims at? and where to possibly get the headunit, lip kit, sub?

Headunit I know you can get at walmart or target or something, but are those cheap pieces of sh*t or are they quality

Re: The lude

Not really sure what you're asking, but I'll attempt.

Websites:
1010tires.com is a good tire/wheel place
majestichonda.com is very good for OEM parts


Rims: Get good quality ones. Don't get cheap rims like I have, you'll just spend more in the long run. I'm not familiar with rim companies though.

Lowering: Coil overs are reportedly the best way to go. Form & functions are supposed to be good and resonably prices, koni yellows are good but mad expensive, and I think teins are really expensive too. Just don't use lowering springs on stock struts, or the struts will fail.

OEM lip kit: You can get it from a honda dealer (I'm pretty sure, it IS oem...), rather expensive, very good looking. Usually they don't have the color you want but I'm told the best route to go is to just suck it up and take whatever color and get it sprayed. '


As far as sound stuff goes I have no idea. However I do know my brother had a blaupunkt (spelling?) headunit in his truck that played louder and with better quality than my buddies aftermarket headunit with amp and subwoofers. I think he got it at wally-world, but I'm not 100%.

I do the same thing. I usually go searching for parts on sites like horsepowerfreaks, then go find the same part on ebay for a better deal.

I usually end up buying from an ebay store called streetrays. They have good prices and fast shipping.
