My Red Type-r with BBS now fitted

I've been through my fair share of cars, from my EP3 to 350zs, and S2000 and an EVO. I bought my FN2 last year to help save for my first house. I've heard alot of bad things about he FN2, but I absolutely love it, Its a great little example and I got it for a steal. Anyhow, I put a few little mods on including wind deflectors, side stickers, tinted fog protectors and gel badges. However I couldn't resist a set of BBS reps when they came up for sale on the forum a little while ago. I don't actually know of any other red FN2 with these fitted.

18s 8j wide and I believe ET35. The offset is spot on, I would like the eibach springs next but I dont know if the 30mm ones are a little brave. I reckon I could get away with it even with the low offset. Opinions please.

Looks great, go for the ABP 30mm springs which won't give you any issues and will look spot on!

Wheels look nice, personally I would have em powdercoated white

Could'nt help notice your cars ride height looks very high for a Type-R.

Lowering a must IMO.

For those of you who says ET38 is the limit, these wheels are ET35, and they look amazing

There's no problem having low offset as long as you combine it with the right wheel width and camber setting.

Look great, i'd maybe go with 15mm springs instead full fat 30mm, will catch at 30mm.

Thanks for all the replies and comments fellas. I'm confident with the height it is now, that the 30mm ABP springs will be perfect. Its not the trend to have german car wheels on a Honda but I absolutely love these.

As much as white is tempting, I'm definitely going to be getting these done in anthracite. As it stands there is no rubbing at all.
