It does indeed, looks lovely. What tyres you running on the Speedlines? Those wheels look great BTW. Are you running spacers on the wheels?

Thank you chaps 👍

I'm running Nankang NS2R's all round. There ok for the money, but I prefer my previous Yoko AD08R's that I had before. They are a better tyre. That's just my personal opinion. I'm no race driver, just like a decent tyre should I want grip, but car is used daily so still needs to last a while.

I'm also running 18mm spacers up front, nothing on the rear. The wheels are et38 offset.

Only got mine on Thursday. It’s already sporting a Cliosport.net window sticker and has no doubt appeared on this thread before, but not in my ownership.
Not had a chance to clean it yet.

Looks great man, thought you were running spacers. What width are the tyres?

I've had AD08R on my DC5 Integra and I loved them but they were wide (225) and I think they might rub on mine as I'm running Cooksport Springs. Would spacers help in that respect?

My 182 is running thin tyres on OEM wheels and the arches swallow the wheels and it looks s**t lol.

Tyre size is 195/50/15. The yokos have a less bulbous side wall than these. Had them in the same size. I'd say 98% stick with 195/50 when on 15s with these. You shouldn't rub with that size on cooksports. I never did when I had those springs and tyre size on my old BG.

Standard wheels (8 spoke) are et43 I believe.

Ah, I'm running 16's bud so makes more sense now why yours fit. Wouldn't mind going down to 15's tbh as it may help with the handling. Really like those Speedlines all the same, look great against the Blue.

You ever tried a Dremel with polishing tip on? I used my dremel and autoglym metal polish, my old exhaust came up wayyyy better than expected although a little pitted.....
In all honesty I tried half heartedly 2 years ago and since then with it being a daily just cba.... may try that though, good tip!

@Dr Jekyll kind of like the juxtaposition of our philosophies with the RB's. Light and Dark almost.

White wheels, clear repeaters, silver bullets on yours, totally opposite on mine.

Looking forward to more lows on mine when the coilovers show up to match stance too. Although don't think I'll be spacing.

I've more carbon to add too, oooooooooo shiny

Any more pictures Coops? Was looking solely for BG but now I’m thinking RB.. just standard wheels don’t suit the colour!
Just search my posts in this thread matey or check my project thread in the projects section, loads of wheel combos in there as I'm a total wheel whore, lol
