im not confused at all. you just dont seem to have an open mind, its an idea...thats all.

nowhere is it written that lime green wheels are jdm and that they only belong on civics...

oh and by the way the only pic of the wheels i could find were 4 lug.

its deffantly one of those things that your going to either hate it or love it, when your going that extreme you just gotta do it and not think on it. I dont know how i feel about them, not to say that they look horrible on the car, but if you do get them you gotta make them tuck like in the pic cause any bit of wheel gap is going to make them look funny.

i already have black wheels with a polished lip...refer to sig. and there is no "jdm style"...jdm style is OEM honda,

i would just be trying to set myself apart from all the other riced out 4x4 neons with invader kits and neon underglow.

i am on honda-tech, have been since 2002...clearly a part for an sti would not be oem honda...but were not talking about sti's.

you stated that i should buy a honda due to the fact that im trying to make my neon look like one. typical jdm style IS oem honda...sure theres an aftermarket using the term JDM to sell their shit but type in "jdm style wheels" on honda-tech and you'll get laughed at.

majority of my friends own hondas too....so i know quite a bit...

heres a couple pics of my buddies cars.

thats a fun car to drive

Not feeling it at all. You will not be able to tuck the front wheel like that without airride (your wheel will rub really bad with springs/coilovers).

Personally I'm tired of seeing the black rim with polished lip combo on ANY car. Contrasting colors get my attention more nowadays. When Konig came out with the Kolors line they had a super orange color I almost got one time just to be totally off-beat and different...plus they're light as hell!

I say go for it.

Oversteer is when you hit the wall with the back of the car. Understeer is when you hit the wall with the front of the car.
Horsepower is how fast you're going when you hit the wall, and torque is how far you drag the wall with you.

I disagree. He just needs to roll and PULL the fenders out to get it to work correctly. After doing that, you won't have the inner fender liners anymore. Oh ya, run a good amount of camber in the front, also.

Here's my friend's Miata @ full lock with tie-rod spacers for more angle, pulled fenders, daily driver:
Image
It's doable, just not many Neon people do it? Or any lol.
Also might help if you are THAT low to not *completely* bolt the fenders down, let them move a little when/if the tire hits it.

I'd say zipties are your friend but I think you guys will crucify me! :shock:
