hey guys I'm new to the forums and civicx. Just wanted some opinions on my car and what to build. So far I've just tinted the windows, upgraded halogens to LEDs. Everything is pretty much stock. Planning to murder out the car all black. Smoked side markers are coming in this weekend and wrapping the chrome to black. Im also in a dilemma because I just bought a new set of tires for the civic but people have been telling me to move up from 17s to 18s. Anyone sitting on 17s? Thanks

I find tint and chrome delete on these models is always a good start. Upgrading interior lights to LED also adds a nice touch.

For the tires, it's really up to you. 18s are stock on the HB Sport models and they look good. If anything, people tend to go 18 and a bit wider. Depending on the 17 though, I'm sure you can make it work especially since you already have them. Enjoy the build!

Idk here’s mine on 17s and I don’t think they look small. I’ve had friends actually debate downsizing as the visual isn’t much different but the ride is so much better

Did you lower it by any chance? Or is it just stock?
