who's gonna steal wheel covers? :lol:


You'd be surprised. Someone stole the wheel covers off my friend's Saturn! Another one of my friends had a hubcap stolen off his Taurus.


comon, they probably just fell off

there is a store near my house, that sells wheels and tires, but they also sell tons of hub caps. Guess what the name is, "hub cap annie"

Yup. You never know. Let's say someone is missing one or two wheel covers, or the ones he has are beat up to hell. He sees a brand new set on another car which just happen to fit his own. You know how people can be. If an a__hole can key your car for kicks, what's to stop another sonofabitch from swiping a set of snap-ons?

Gotta be alloys, no question about it.

I guess things worked out pretty well for me. I didn't have to shell out too much dough to go to alloys. If I'd wanted them when I bought my car, the alloys alone would have cost $1500 as an option from the dealer :shock: And if I had opted for the top-of-the-line FiT Sport (instead of my mid-level LX), that would have cost me $2500 more, plus taxes :shock: I came out way ahead the way I went about it. And I didn't have to go non-OEM.

Those are beauties, but mine are equally nice IMHO 8)

Don't forget Sypher, I did my buying privately, through the Toronto Civic Club Forums. There are lots of OEM rims on the market, but lots of them are garbage, as my experience would prove. So the chances of finding a set like the ones in your pic, in min t condition as mine are, would be very slim. I didn't want to wait too long to pick up the alloys. I was quite eager to get it done this summer actually. Plus, I could not stand the site of the stock steelies and wheel covers much longer.

True. I understand what you mean man, and by no means am I saying you're dont look nice. I just saw those rims on a civic in a used car lot when we were looking at cars for my cousin's bf and I just loved those rims ever since. They look gorgeous! More like something that you should find in aftermarket rim retailer rather than in a honda dealership :lol:

I'm gonna get a car with alloys, or I"m gonna buy some. Steelies just flat out suck
