    I've got an FN2 CTR at the moment and my tires are getting a little tired, I've wanted new alloys for a while now so I guess it's time to make the jump! I've came across some cheap used FK CTR wheels on ebay that I'd imagine would look quality on an FN. Are there any pictures of an FN running...

    Hi everyone! I'm starting to plan my next mod, which will probably be going +1 on the alloys (from 17" to 18"), but here's the thing..... I don't know what the hell I'm meant to be looking for!! Obviously I know how to search for 18" wheels, but then I hear words like 'offset' for example, and...

    Hi all, I am new to the forum and have just recently bought a 2008 civic 2.2 cdti ex model. The car functions well engine and transmission wise but the car pulls heavily to the right, it has 17" allows installed. If I let go of the steering wheel the car keeps going to the right and I constantly...

    Hello All, the current tires on the Civic HB is 235*45*R17. I am looking for an economical solution for winter tyres. what are your choices. It seems 215*55*r16 also fits the car and there will be no setting required on Speedmeter. Can anyone share the wheel size details also. Thank you Hayrettin

    Hello All, On Friday i was driving down a normal country lane in the dark and i suddenly smashed into a pot hole (passenger side). So the next day i had a quick look over and much to my amusement the pot hole has now rearranged my 19" Rage alloy. As you can imagine i was not too pleased. I...

    Just had my wheels done in gloss black but when checking them they have put several weights in a row on the outside and it just looks **** silver on black, did it have to be done this way? I don't notice weights visible on most black alloys I see

    So the OEM wheels, of which I am not a fan, have finally been replaced now that the slow boat from Japan has arrived! Also added new fuel filler flap and removed the Civic badge. I'd already removed the red striping. The plan to get the dark stealthy look with minimal red accents is progressing...

    Just joined the forum as I bought a 2014 1.8 SE Plus 5dr a month ago to replace a 2002 Civic that had served me very well. I confess the first month has been a bit up and down settling into the car but I'm getting used to most of it, except the ride... I bought an SE Plus because it had the...

    Hi all, not often I come asking for help but I am facing a dilemma. My FK3 is lowered on 25mm eibach springs with 15mm spacers in the back but I'm on the search for some wheels. Here is a pic of my car (excuse crappy quality): My question is - do I go for 17s or 18s? I don't want the car to...

    Thinking of taking my wheels off, fitting spacers and painting my calipers, just wondered if this is a DIY job. Taking the wheel off is easy enough, but just wondering about the procedure to put the wheels back on. Do they need torquing? or anything else doing to them other than just doing them...

    Bit of a strange one but i ordered wheel nut caps and thinking they would be pretty universial they did not fit! Can anyone tell me where to get ones to fit a Civic? Need them as my alloys are black and the shiney silver bolts just don't look right. Thanks in advance

    Hi folks, the winter is coming in soon, so why not get your wheels refurbished now so they are all sealed and protected for the winter weather coming? We are having a sale for one week only, starting the 6th of October with a saving of £50 off which means you'll get all 4 alloys fully...

    Hello All I have changed wheel sizes, I was just wondering if there are any settings in either the sat nav or trip computer which need changing? Does the AVG mpg and speedo work the same? Many thanks Chris
