hey..bro, great set of wheels...can you tell me the cost and do they come in 16" too...i too have a white civic. 17" look great but i have a feeling that the ride would get rough and the big potholes might even break the alloys. therefore want to go for 16 inchers.

thank you all.
sanchits i have no idea about their size in 16 inch.But if you ask me the ride quality hasn't gone bad at all.also i'm really careful over bumps and potholes,even with the stock wheels i was careful.
Just a little bit of care and you'll see that these are not bad at all.
About the tires.Well i had heard that these tires are quite noisy on bad roads.And yes they are.Even on slightly broken roads they make such a ding!
Though i haven't been able to test the grip levels but the initial feedback is good.it feels better controlled in fast corners.
The only problem i have right now are the lug nuts.the ones i have got are those stupid allen ones.in which an allen key goes into the nut.and they are not of good quality either.
i wanted proper good chromed ones.these will rust very soon.
so if any of you have a link to someone with 12mm X 1.5 very slim nuts,please let me know.

Great alloys! They go really well with the car.
As another poster said, these are simply the best alloys I've seen on a Civic! Congrats!
EDIT: Great choice of rubber too! These tyres will not let you down!
