  1. Wheel noob - 19" / 18" performance change questions -

    Much of what I stated here is my personal preference. You can't really "disagree' with my personal preference. You can have a different personal preference. You can not like my personal preference. You can think I am a fool for my personal preference. But you can't "disagree" with it. It is what...
  2. Wheel noob - 19" / 18" performance change questions -

    I am familiar with Houston. I live in Charlotte, a bit cooler, but no real winter. My advice: If you like the stock wheels, and the way the car drives, get a set of PS4s and drive them year round. You will never regret the decision. 30K lifespan, great wet and dry, in any temps down to the low...

    Where do you live/What is your winter weather?
  4. Super Clean Type-r For $26777

    Flood damage is generally an automatic total. Insurance companies learned their lesson on that one a long time ago.
  5. KTuner Extended Testing And Tune Results

    This is the exact shitty attitude I got via email correspondence with KTuner. Big reason why they never got my money.
  6. michelin ps4s tires 265/35/18 500 miles review

    I have OEM wheels. But to answer your question in general, if you go to a 40 series tire from a 30 series tire all else being equal, there will be a loss in resonsive crispness and turn-in.
  7. michelin ps4s tires 265/35/18 500 miles review

    I have been experimenting with different pressures and can't tell a big difference on the street. They seem to be very forgiving tires with a wide operating range. I am currently at 39/36.
  8. KTuner Extended Testing And Tune Results

    Is this a completely OEM car?
  9. 2020 Civic Type R Price Announced at $36,995 (a $695 Increase)

    At least you are capable of SOME level of honesty. Not really sure what "theories' you are talking about. Nothing about you so far has been "deep". In fact it has all been painfully easy to peg with only the minimum of observational skills. You did. Whether you knew it or not. Are going to now...
  10. 2020 Civic Type R Price Announced at $36,995 (a $695 Increase)

    Dude, what are you talking about? post: 774160 post: 774162 post: 774163 Do you think we are incapable of a simple search on a forum? Above are three identical posts, by you, on three different sub-forums in a span of 7 minutes. That makes your above claim deceitful. About normal for a car...
  11. 2020 Civic Type R Price Announced at $36,995 (a $695 Increase)

    So you claim to have a 2017 CTR, yet you just joined this site? And then, for your first posts, you spammed the identical post on multiple threads, none of which were really relevant to the thread in which they were posted? I mean, you couldn't even bother to individualize your posts for the...
  12. Spare Tire for Type R

    At $230 shipped for just the wheel, what is the justification for this over a factory setup?
  13. Spare Tire for Type R

    I didn't use those parts out of my kit anyway. They are still sitting in the OEM plastic bags collecting dust in the corner. But I don't exactly see the point either, unless someone just doesn't want the tractor yellow wheel in the back of their car.
  14. D-Street Type R AutoX info sharing

    I plan to AC mine some, so this bar is far more appealing to me than the Karcepts. I DD mine about 2500mi/month, so the Karcepts is just too much with the maintenance and harshness. I could install this bar with stock links at a mild setting to DD, and in a matter of probably 10 minutes swap out...

    What range settings are people typically using the Karcepts? Is the extra stiffness available with the Karcepts actually needed?
  16. Civic Type R After-market Wheel Guide

    The amount of additional room compared to virtually any other FWD car on the market is significant. I fell into the same trap as just about everyone else, including many wheel builders/retailers, into assuming the clearance was limited similar to everything else. It simply isn't. Here is a...
  17. Civic Type R After-market Wheel Guide

    I have never seen a FWD car with much suspension clearance, so I made this incorrect assumption myself. It wasn't until I got my CTR on a lift and actually looked that I found out there is about 3/4" of clearance everywhere with the OEM wheels. Here is one of my posts with a more detailed...
  18. Civic Type R After-market Wheel Guide

    The Engineering Explained Youtube channel is decent, but he has plenty of mistakes as well. I have commented on his YT about this before. So don't take everything he says to be 100% accurate. You should also know that I am a mechanical engineer, primarily working in the automotive and...
  19. Civic Type R After-market Wheel Guide

    A 245/40R18 gives you virtually the identical diameter, so the speedo is not affected by the change. If that matters to you. A 275/35R18 also gives the same diameter BTW.
  20. CTR Owners In NC?

    I haven't seen one in a while. Probably at least 6 months.
