15x7 rim offset ?
#11
The rear does look to be poking out quite a bit for 34 offset wheels. You could always just get some stock wheels like SI alloys or some Integra wheels to start. They are pretty cheap now and look decent.

since the last couple days, these wheels grew on me. starting to get the hang of what makes it rub and what doesnt (which is new to me and teeth clenching at the same time). alsoi have a thing for 5 spoke wheels on the civics (always on the lookout for slipstreams but never found a dealer or used set).

but on the goodside im gonna take my car by the only reputable shop ive heard about around here (teknotik) and hammer them with questions and also maybe lower/camber my car.

I've heard of Teknotik before. I think they are a Rota authorized dealer.

so i found this website (i know a lot exist)

http://www.willtheyfit.com/index.php?wid...45#content

it just had a cool little diagram that i think helped me out. i was crunching numbers on paper on found this website with everything i did on paper on there.

it looks to me like whether i change the rim or not, its the tire thats the problem. guessings its the 205 (if i go with the 6inch rim i would need a 185/195 to rid the rub (stock wheels)). i figure im not low enough to even hit rim and its just tire for now. just have to stay aware of how i turn and dips in the road (maybes thats the life of this stuff)

i dont want to sound stubborn but i appreciate all the help and thoughts but i think im just going to stay with the 15x7 et34 and just plan suspension next (some stiff coilovers) to try to help me out.

thank you all

hello, sorry to bother again with the wheel questions, but these how are my rims sit around the hubs.

rear

front

is that okay? i heard something about rings that are suppose to fill up that space, but i also heard that its just about the lug nuts that hold the wheel against the disk so it doesnt really matter.

does it matter? will this increase the chance to snap a wheel stud, or bend them? is it cosmetic?

on a side i have re tightened my lugnut about 10 degrees each time ive checked since i got the rims. every 400km i think 3 times. so just wondering if this would be related or my lugnuts are just doing their lugnut thing.

i didnt want to make a new post for this question as its still about these rims. thank you

Hub centric rings are suppose to be for keeping the wheel mounted straight when putting on the lugs keeping the wheel symmetrical around the hub (rather than lug centric which could be off), but most people found that it was useless as long as you use the proper star pattern and torque the lug nuts to proper specification. In the end it's really up to you on this one.

I've never used hubcentric rings, no problems to date.
