As the title says guys/gals, if you've switched out your factory set up for something different post them up for us all to see.

I'm new to Honda & looking for some inspiration in my hunt for black 18" wheels for my wife's Orchid Pearl Touring Sedan that we're picking up this Saturday.

I'll be going with a set of Motegi MR126's (18x8) with Michelin Pilot Super Sports in 235/40/18 on my Crystal Black Pearl Civic Touring. Also putting on a set of red Honda logo MGP caliper covers to cover up the gross looking calipers. I'll post pictures once I get them put on.

You can also thank this Rim and Tire Size Calculator :) 225/40/18 would be pretty close to the Touring's stock size as well. Tire Rack's support chat recommended 235/40/18 or 225/40/18 for the Civic on the Motegi MR126, which are 18x8's with a 40 offset.

I really dig the chrome lip/black center wheels on the white sedans. Nielboy I think you two would dig 225/40/18 tires and look into Enkei's lineup, especially the Enkei Lusso. It's a classic design similar to BBS LM, to me the best looking wheel in the wheel world. Enkei makes great affordable wheels, definitely put that on your list of ideas.

I had the exact set of XXRs on the bottom, no issues for 3+ years. But stay away from STR wheels, gravity cast wheels and are known for cheap quality. I even talked to a company that sells them and they talked badly about them. XXRs get a bad rep too but they actually hold up very well
