One of the best alloys on a Civic! And they look so shiney and sparkly! Kudos for the superbly clean car!

The Civic looks HOT, A welcome change indeed. The Rims suit the color perfectly. Even the Tire Size is rare too find. Its the Perfect upsize in 17" with the right amount of rubber to drive the car around. Kudos on a superb looking car

Thanks bro. I earleir had 225/45 R17 on my octavia and the ride was bumpy. So, this time i tried the 215/50. And, yes the ride is much better on this one, just the right the amount of rubber.

Thanks for the compliments.
Actually, the distributor of Nankang in Punjab is a freind's friend.
So, got them at the dealer price. Will PM you the price.
The alloys are for 24k for four.
BTW, even i have used Nankangs for 2 years on my octavia, and was very much fine with them.

Nice set !! Did you buy them recently? I went to Pal for my alloys too, about a month back, and this set was one option I was considering in 14".

@flyingspur
Yea,bought it a couple of days back. Actually wanted to go for wider tyres on 13" itself, but I liked these rims enough to settle for 165.
