Yup these are 6J and OE are 5.5J. No issues whatsoever. The tyres are also upsized to 185.

Man, that Civic just made my pants wet . Beautiful choice of alloy wheels and just look at the gloss on that body. Fresh from a wax job?

Hey guys thanks for the comments, The wheels with the white civic are silver finished and the one with the black civic are grey. Both are original rays 17" 57 optimise custom ordered from Rays India. Black one has carbon fiber grill with red H logo and lip treatment. Soon the white one will also follow.

Yes, lugs costed 10+ with taxes. Silver wheel is bit expensive than grey wheels, and also caps are extra 3k , I think. They have this breath taking alloys in their office for CRVS, one of the best I have ever seen in 19". Just waw,Wheels come with 3 year structural warranty and one year finish warranty. I will soon get a crv and put those wheels on, its that tempting.

i have seen those wheels.the crv ones.
even i was lusting about the rays wheels.but the ones i was interested in were the 99 B which were 33 grand apiece.too expensive for putting on the civic.not worth it.
and as you say added to that 10k for the lug nuts etc would have made it far too expensive.
if i has a beemer or something they would have been worth.

Default my new alloy

hello people , here is my car with the new LENSO samurai alloys. I wanted hyper silver but got ended with gun metal finish. Comment on it and is there any possibility to paint this with hyper silver.

Alloy is LENSO SC r1 model , POLISH/GUN METAL finish . Tires - YOKOHAMA S-DRIVES 205/55/R15

@jakky: crazy alloys dude, they are the Lenso Samurai SC-05, the colour is called dfx or might be dark blue.

love these alloys.

You can get them painted, but you will not get the 2 color paint that is present on the original wheels.

I would suggest you get the front break calliper and rear break drum painted red and smoke the lights and there is no other car sexier than yours.

99B start from 18" I believe, though they are more of performance wheels - means very light weight .I have lifted one of those and are almost half the weight of ordinary 15"alloys. I think the lighter the wheel the expensive it becomes.

99b has inbuilt caps, no extra I think . I have seen couple of crvs and accords with Rays diamond cut, Should say worth every penny. Asked for Crv some 19" dolce or spada something, it was 1.3lks
