  1. Alloys Other FN2 Alloy Paint or Powder Coat?

    Wheels, Tyres, Suspension and Brakes (8G)
    Hi all. Well, I've always wanted a red (or in this case a Milano) coloured car with white alloys. However the alloys I do have are the stock Honda alloys. Now, I can't change the physical alloy due to insurance price increases but I can change the colour. Has anyone had their alloys powder...
  2. [How To] Refurb Those Alloys

    This is How To ... (Guides Only) (8G)
    One of the reasons why I got my CTS a bit cheaper than other models of the same year + milage was that the previous owner had curbed the living hell out of the alloys. It was a bit of a shame, as I haven't seen many Civics with these particular 18" alloys- so rather than replace them, I thought...
  3. Alloys Corrosion 17" Pentas' - Corrosion?

    Wheels, Tyres, Suspension and Brakes (8G)
    Hi guys, Had my Civic a few months now and one of the reasons I went for mine was the wheels. I love the 17" Pentas', I think the look brilliant! Unfortunately, both back wheels seem to be showing signs of corrosion. I've not contacted the dealer yet and was wondering if anyone has...

  5. Alloys Other Type "S" alloys onto a 1.4 S.I ?

    Wheels, Tyres, Suspension and Brakes (8G)
    Hi Fellas. I was wondering if anyone has fitted 17" Type S alloys onto the 1.4" SI, currently has the Grey 16" 5 spokes. Or perhaps someone has a suggestion for a different supplier of alloys? Looking to do it on a budget of course;) I like the current wheels but i think the car would look...
  6. Steering FN2 pulls to the right, but straight under braking

    Wheels, Tyres, Suspension and Brakes (8G)
    Hello everyone, I am in dire need of some thoughtful help. While leaving my FN2 being serviced by the dealer for the infamous clutch pedal issue I asked them to swap front and back wheels - so as to even wear as the fronts were starting to show a bit of wear on the tyre shoulders. Before that...
  7. Tyre Choice Rage Alloy's tyre choice?

    Wheels, Tyres, Suspension and Brakes (8G)
    Hey guys & girls, I've just become the proud owner of a set of rage alloys for my CTR, just wondering what people's experiences and recommendations for rubber to coat them with. Cheers Paul
