    Rim Fitment Thread

    Well I just picked up an ilx last week and so far im very happy with it, mind you I traded in a 2010 TL SH-AWD for it.
    It was a huge change and Im still getting used to the ILX, the seats were definitely more comfortable in the TL, but Im loving the gas mileage of the ILX.
    ANYWAYS....

    I would like to start modifying my ilx and im sure there are other members on this forum that would like to see what other people have tried for rims/ tire / suspension options
    It would be nice to see some photos
    Im looking at getting 18" rota grids or varrstoen 222 in the spring, im not sure if varrstoen makes a rims that's not very aggressive.

    Ill start by adding the picture that Im sure we've all seen

    Its sitting on what I think is 18" enkei rims which in my opinion looks pretty good, but it needs a lower profile tire and a bigger drop

    So post some pictures of what you guys got going on and hopefully we can help each other out

    I was definitely looking to start a thread like this.. It's 100% sure that

    235/35/19 tires on 19x8.5 +45 will fit with a 5mm spacer in front and a 10mm in back. (SEMA car specs)
    I am probably going 235/40/18 on 18x8.5 +30-40

    You can assume most 2012 Civic Si set-ups will be like ours as far as size/fitment.. if you're looking to go slammed/fitted it's easier to keep the wheel 8" width or less.

    Right, I should clarify.. MANY things are possible.. depending on what amount of money and work you'd like to put forth. lol
