just bought a 93 civic eg hatch thats had a b16a3 engine conversion, its got bald rear tyres so alloys and some lowering springs are my first mods, but im stuck on the wheel choice, ive narrowed it down to:
16x7 rota gt3'sin red

or 16x7 rota grids in green
Image

Apparently 16"s are a bit big on them, what about 15"s?. And you'd be better putting some JDM 'Teg springs on it to drop it a little and keep some handling prowess rather than manky off the shelves.

White alloys IMO.

And pretty much what Scott said on the springs/wheel size statement.

its coming with a rolling road printout showing 174.8bhp, so with the buddy club exhaust and manifold, j's racing venturi intake, a high compression head gasket and some buddy club spec 3 cams that should be around the 200bhp figure. im saving first for the alloys and suspension tho, then the exhaust and intake, but i hope to have it looking and sounding good by early next year.
