new wheels and painted calipers

i got round to fitting my new wheels this weekend and painted the calipers with a nice little decal which wont be to everyones taste im sure

good days for cleaning the car and sealing the wheels too bonus!

on a side note the FALKEN FK452 works great in the rain

great job! Those alloys really suit the car I'm still, saving for some 17" Type S for mine

Nice alloys mate, one of the very few civics I've seen with nice alloys picked by the driver. Random bottle of fairy liquid. Nice

Looking great, one question, did you remove the callipers for painting? Or even the discs/pads?

Looking good mate, think the decals on the calipers are a great touch too! and totally agree Falkens perform very well in the wet
