    These look great! Have mine up for sale, hoping to move to something like these. Might hit you up if I move mine. What color spoke stickers did they come with?

    Spoke design and weight. Overall very very close and both used as track weapons

    how well do they really work for “racing “ given the offset is way off from stock?

    all the people running track days are OBLITERATING times set by stock sized wheel/tires with forged volks (either these te37sl or ce28) in 18x9.5 sizing with 30-40 offset so they work really well. Also theyve been working well for 30 years on every single vehicle type of drivetrain and suspension type, our civic doesnt have anything magical thing going on suspension wise, as much as people love to internet mechanic.

    Are you one of those people who thinks if you go any lower than stock offset the car suddenly has torque steer everywhere? Look at all the people tracking their cars 18x9.5” +40 offset-ish is what everyone uses... and they always work very well.

    I've read on here of people with +40 offset that it makes huge torque steer, so do your research before buying anything, people.

    and we're telling you it's wrong. I personally own a set of TE37s and there is zero difference except increased traction and cornering because I run a 265. Stop spreading fake news

    I seriously cant believe people believe this based on one article. As long as you keep your contact patch for the scrub raidus the same or MORE (most people go 255/265) with STICKIER/BETTER tires as people do when switching over to these smaller, lighter wheels - in some cases almost 10lbs saved per corner (also less stress on the suspension points that have the torque steer!!!) then you will be fine.

    Holy moly peeps, let's bring it downa notch. I'm only passing on info I READ FROM EXPERIENCED PEOPLE ON THIS SITE. It's not my words, it's theirs. Just don't want anybody spending a ton of money, thinking everything's peachy, only to find out OOPS it was a huge mistake. All I'm saying is do your research. Yikes.

    and theres tons of people tracking on this site, the pictures i posted are all members on here. And they do ACTUAL track racing, not glorified parking lot runs autox.
    here's the spoon and mugen cars who run oem style suspension still as well with 9.5" +45ish or lower offset wheels. Guess those guys don't know what theyre doing either and make monkey marketing slower than oem cars ... guess ill trust "baldheadracing" on civicx instead!
