    Tell me what you guys think. Usually people with Civics like it but I never got many opinions from peopel who dont have Civics. Dont forget, this beast puts down about 100 hp to the wheels and probably runs mid.... maybe low 19s in the 1/4. Yup, runnin 19s on 19s...

    Mods: TeinSS coilovers, Xenon body kit, 19'' RHEvo C5s and a whoel bunch of other stuff I dont feel like listing.

    you know with a more modest body kit it wouldn't look bad.

    Rear bumper for dual exhaust = $500
    No dual exhaust = priceless

    looks good to me... i have 19's on my accord and love them...

    a friend of mine in Team eci just bumped his civic from 19's to 20's you would think they would look too big but they really set off his civic... any way ignore the neg. comments... people are always so quick to judge what other people like

    Is it a blue 6thgen civic by any chance?

    I wanted to get 20s but I wouldnt be able to dump it because the tires would be too wide. With 215/35/19 tires I'm dropped 3 inches and no rubbing plus I can go a little lower with no problem if I wanted to.

    The negative comments I dont mind as long as its something useful and something that makes sense unlike calling it "rice". That term is so played out its funny...... but if I didnt want opinions on the car then I wouldnt post pics of it.

    The dual exhuast they make for 2k1+ year Civics sounds like ass...... in fact, I dont like how any exhuasts sound for my car thats why I havnt gotten it yet. When I get an exhuast its gonna be custom made dual so it'll be quiet, or close as to stock sounding.

    Those ingredients usually make a very ugly rice mobile, but for some reason yours doesn't look that bad. I kinda like it. And at least you know it's slow and can admit it :rofl:

    yes it used to be silver with blue pearl until last spring it was painted a darker blue...
    i run the same size tires on my accord and keep it dropped about 4 inches most of the time should have an air setup soon though... your civic actually looks familar i may have seen in online somewhere else though where are you from?

    I use the car to go back and forth to college so I'm keeping it stock drive-train wise..... about 30 MPG with 19s and about 34-35 MPG on stock wheels totally owns me when my school is about 20 miles one way from my house. Having the car look decent (IMO at least) is just a bonus for me.

    Thanks for the comments guys.

    I noticed the same thing in the last picture - the camber looks off compared to the front wheels.

    The kit's ok, the rims are nice. I like 'em, and they'd look good on my mustang :rofl:
    Like I said though, the kit isn't bad. If it were molded a little better it would look a lot better IMHO.

    so basically you slowed your car yet even more with the 19s. It looks "fixed up" though. Some of us like some go with the show, but hey, if thats where you want to spend your money all power to ya. I'll give you props for not putting a stupid ass wing on there.

    I personally wouldn't go bigger than 18's (which I have on my car) just because you start shooting yourself in the foot at that point.

    I have to run negative camber because i'm tuckin about and inch and a half in the rear. I had the alignment shop set the camber to as close as they can before the wheels rub on the fenders and set the toe perfectly....... because toe kills rubber, not camber.... camber just makes them wear unevenly.

    I would never race my car so it being "slow" is irrelavent to me..... if I wanted a "fast" car I wouldnt get a Civic.

    Your 18s do as much damage as my 19s.... rotational mass of an already heavy rim will take more power to turn and stop then a nice set of light 15s or 16s.... I guess having 19s is slightly worse then having 18s.

    you guys really are assholes... not everyone enjoy's mustang's, 600HP, and screwing their sister. the kid uses it for going to and from school. He wants something more than a stock look. What has he done wrong?! and for the dude who said motor swap... try it in college. I am in 3rd year and know i have about 7 dollars to my name.

    i think your car is sweet dude. Looks top notch. Nice mods and not taking it over the top. My friend has a Black 2001 5-speed. 17" axis, Kaminara skirts, forget bumpers, nice car. forget those who bag on u.... do you like it? thats all that matters :)

    Not a fan of the kit.. its a bit too gaudy for me. As for the rims I like them. A bit low for my taste but eh its your car and if you like it then that great. About the exhaust check to see if Thermal R&D makes a setup for your car. I have catbacks on my car from them and the tone is very mellow and pleasing. Then again its a dual on an accord v6.

    If you had a different kit it would look decent.. How's the ride with those "too big for a civic" wheels?
