Re: WELL.. got the new rims onn..

agreed... they look way better but would look soooooo sexy if it was lowered. It would do your whole car justice. sell your old rims and slam that beast!

Re: WELL.. got the new rims onn..

Well the clearance problem was the caliper arm hit the rim. I was sketchy about the spacers iv only heard about problems so i went with the smallest one possible.. and then noticed it wasn't big enough so i just shaved the arm a bit, looks fine though. :) Thanks for the comments guys :) LOWERING WILL HAPPEN.. eventually :)

The exact same thing has to be done on LX/EX Civic's to fit Si rims on them. Takes a marginal amount of metal off the outer edge, doesn't hurt anything

I vote you polish the caliper bracket and caliper. It would look sexyyyyyy.
