Those are 17's? They look quite small in the pics. Maybe the raised stance of the car is playing tricks?

Thanks for the suggestions buddies. But as stated in the pics posted by Arush, that particular friend DID make a nice choice.
Keep up the good work Raman and Arush! :-)

Wow thats a nice replica of the m6.
Are there any replicas of the m5 mags?
Arush, if you dont mind can you let me know how much they cost? And if they are readily available in the market?

Unhappy

To be honest, I did not like these alloys.
Somehow it seems to be over-done. The original alloys were definitely smarter.
The new design spoils the low hung profile and apperance of Civic.
