We've had some much needed rain here the last few days, so I decided to take advantage and shoot my new White Orchid Pearl EX-T under some lights.

Modifications thus far:

  1. Miro 563 18x9.5 wheels + BF Goodrich G-Force Comp-2 A/S XL tires
  2. XenonDepot LED Lowbeams
  3. "Turbo" Canada-style vinyls (add 5 HP each)

Loving my new Civic!

Looks tits man! It's funny because I was looking at these exact wheels earlier. The 563s and the CR-Kai copies are my wheels of choice. Im jealous because I wanted a white / black interior Touring but all the dealers around SD had white with tan :(

Looks nice, didn't think you can fit 9.5s and those tires look meaty, what aspect ratio you running?

Thanks! Mine is WOP/Tan and I think it's great. Even on hot days it's nice and cool inside. Plus I like how the seats/trim contrast the dash.

Thanks. The tires are 255/40/18.

Nice. Could you tell me what the name of the LED lowbeam is?
I believe it's the H11 LED bulb. This one here: http://www.xenondepot.com/H11-LED-headlight-kit-p/h11-led-hl.htm

Where were you able to get the turbo vinyl?

It's amazing how much better these cars look without the OEM Honda rims.

I agree. While the stock wheels aren't terrible, there are better options out there. The real difference is in the tires. I am not sure why Honda decided to go with the strange FT140's on these great cars - the tires are mushy in corners and decidedly nervous in the rain. My new tires (and presumably almost any tire that is well-rated and reviewed) have made driving much more engaging.

How do you like the tire? Especially in wet condition, am planning to buy 4 of these for summer.

Ugh. I thought about doing a rain/water shot with my vehicle also, but decided I didn't want to get wet. Lol. It was the first time my car's been in a rain here in Florida in the month that I got it, and it would've been a good photo opportunity.
