what do you guys recommend for new rims?

i am doing a 4 lug to a 5 lug swap so im going to be in the market for some new rims.


i have been looking around and want to have something that looks like a deep but with 5-6 arms only.

nothing bling just simple.

in the mean time ill be selling my brand new in the box wheels and tires cause they wont work later on.
https://www.tunerfriends.com/forums/s...487#post119487
so if anyone wants to buy these just pm me or email me.
the lug pattern is 4x100. if you have 4 lug pattern check to see if it fits.

in the mean time ill be looking around to see what new rims i want.
if you guys recommend wheels i wanted to keep it looking similiar to the ones im selling. no chromies please.
they are going on a honda civic 91. the car is brown.
the ones im selling looks like this.

If you are planning on using spacers to create this 4 to 5 lug pattern change, I would advise against it.

oh, of course not. no weird spacers are being used. i am having a specialist make some custom wheel hub from oem parts. he has combined some acura and honda parts, new, to make my ef civic conversion. its very good. he knows his ****. i am paying almost two grand for his product.

his product is basically doing this for me.

i have:
91 civic 4wd (he also made one for a 2wd version)
front are disc brakes.
rear are drums
currently 4x100


conversion:
front larger rotors
front larger calipers
front larger pistons
rear disc
rear rotors
rear pistons
rear calipers
able to keep oem hand parking brake
change hub to 5x114.3
(the only items not oem are the rotors, ss brake lines, and upgraded bushings)
ALL OEM PARTS USED FOR CONVERSION
I AM KEEPING MY 4WD STILL A 4WD RUNNING CAR!

he said my car is the pioneer of all 4wd civic conversion.
there are no other older 4wd civic with a custom rear conv. with a 5x114.3

here are some pics from the first 2wd version he created.

The problem with getting offbrand wheels is that normally they're pretty heavy. That extra unsprung weight really hurts you, so maybe look for a set of used volk, rays, enkei, etc. instead.
