Written Off after 20 days! :'(

Only 20 days ago I bought my first 2008 civic type r.

Last Wednesday afternoon a young guy who thought it a good idea to text whilst driving hit me @ 30mph whilst I was stationary

The insurance company wrote it off yesterday.

10 days ago I spent 600 on new tyres... Which it seems I'm never going to see again... Unless I go swap them, being clever I kept the part worm tyres and sold them on eBay :/

I need to find 4 x 225 40 18 tyres by Friday morning! Or some type s / standard wheels that someone fancies swapping there standard wheels and tyres for some 18" type r wheels only.

Any suggestions?

Is it mechanical or just body damage?

FYI the standard wheels are 17" so not sure if that will trip you up.

My fault as I wasn't clear; I meant "standard" to mean non-CTR rims as OP mentioned getting Type-S ones to replace with.
