Navpreet, dude I'm turning GREEN!!! Your car looks WOOWW!! Wish the roads where I stay were good enough to run 17s.
About the lug nuts, I think all chrome ones will get rusted eventually. Keep the ones you have. Once they rust, get them painted white.

The Michelin PP2s are very nice, great handling and very silent (I currently have them on my Civic). If budget is no constraint, you could go in for the Pilot Sport or the Yoko Advans. Those rims deserve better mates

kartik the tires are yokohama s drives.

abhik,ramie,shark80,ashthedivx,hydrashok,zoom-vroom,kpzen,

thank you all for the kind words.

shuvd i'd still say go with your heart man.get a set of white type m alloys from lenso.even i have to be careful with the potholes.and normal driving at about 30-40 kmph through broken roads will be ok.these tires will handle it.we make them sound too brittle but they are quite tough.
By the way great idea about the lug nuts.wonder why didn't it strike me earlier.

vikram well the advan and pilot sports are currently out of my budget.
i'll give you an idea.i initially was looking for a 3-4 lakh lancer or honda.then upped the budget to 7 for a MIVEC lancer,then upped it yet again for the Cedia.that was the end of my personal limit.Dad didn't like the Cedia.says it looks like a bigger logan.so bought the Civic with dad's support.and finally took a loan from sister to get these alloys and tires.i barely have money for petrol yaar.lol.

Excellent look of you Civic! I must say. Alloys really enhance looks of cars many folds if selected cautiously.

Do you remember ad of SUMO Vista on TV. I am sure you will get similar experience in your Civic. People simple fell in love with you Civic (and of course owner too).

Enjoy!

Navpreet - great choice of alloys. The only thing I feel is they are multi pcd. Don't these come in a single PCD option ?

Read somewhere that the multi-pcd alloys are weaker as they have lesser metal to handle the stress (logical)

But your car rocks !!!!! Those pics are shot in Dehradun ?? I always loved that place!!


Cheers

Ricky ji this is the only grip i have against the wheels.they are only available in multi pcd.i checked out international sites and forums too.very weird but true.though the same wheels in 14 and 15 inch size come with single pcd.talk about weird marketing policies.
Yes those shots are from dehradun.IT park area.nice road there.


thank you faithless.were you born in 1984?
