That's a real beauty u got there!
Compliments to you.

Just wondering, do the 225's scrape the arches during Sharp turns?

May be picture angle playing its part! It was the 1st day and I wanted to see how the car looks without centre wheel caps! It actually looks better without wheel caps but I will put the wheel caps on when I am doing a complete photoshoot of my Shark!

Thanks Monaro! Nope, 225's do not touch the wheel arches, because the profile is 45 and it brings the overall diameter in line with stock 15" wheel size! Thanks again for your compliments, do check out my thread for more pics and details about my Shark!

Thanks bud, nothing like your A4 with 19" alloys though!

You are right with your observations. I myself have seen Again 4 and Again 5 alloys many times on Civic Si and VW Rabbits. About the CTR wing, no offence but I feel it will be over the top for my car. I do have the OEM Honda wing on it though. I feel I may not drive a 'Look at Me, I am a Race Boy' car to my office wearing a suit, so no Type R wing for me. I was even contemplating to get my car repainted in Milano Red color but decided against it for the same reason.

My pick would be the 5 spoke black alloy with polished face, Beat would look awesome with it.

^^You can check the urban model of Neo Wheels, its available in White machined finish and it looks awesome on white color cars, here is a link for your easy reference http://www.neowheels.com/wheelmatch/...us=on&mySound=, I hope this will help you in making the final choice.

My pick would be the Black Alloy with Polished 5 spokes.
Those would look killer.

Do check if they have it in white option too, instead of the polished finish.

I will make changes in the hub accordingly, just looking for 18" or 19" Chrome Alloy RIMs with lots of option to choose from.
