Yeah, thats mighty agressive looking. Definalty a 5 star ride.

Ritch...

Oh yeah, if your insurance askes if you want to insure your wheels, do it. They asked me yesterday, and I said no, and last night, I broke 2 wheels and busted 2 tires. Road construction company did not merge 2 roads together right and there was a 3 inch rise from one road to the other with a sharp edge on it and I got it good. $1600 damage for 2 replacement wheels and 2 tires. Ouch!

Here is the road where I broke my wheels. As you can see they put the reflecters in wrong spot. the cones show the correct spot they should have been.

I can empathize with your monetary loss but I just don't get those type of wheels for anything other than show. I think that would happen weekly here with the sad state of road conditions given the abusive winter. Wasn't the ride rather harsh...just curious?

I have to admit, the ride was still about the same. Honda rode great before and after the wheels. The only thing that bothered me was the tires were loud like mud tires. On a good note, they are accepting the fault (rare) and they are cutting me a check for the $1600.

Those little ridges are nothing compared to what we have in NYC. Sorry about your rims.

Big Wheels.

I had 20's on my 99 V and they pulled on grooved roads bad. If you rode weight in the back, they'd rub. Big rims not for me on V's. I'm shooting for some BFG long trail 225/75/15 on stock steelies (painted black):cool:

That looks pretty good. Would you mind sharing with us your setup? What size wheels with offset, size of tires, TPMS issues? That would be fantastic.
Wheels are Sport Addition KV5 from Tire Rack. 17x8 with 45mm offset. Just transferred the OEM Continentals and used the valve stems and TPMS units from the OEM Alloy wheels. No TPMS issues or any type of reset required. OEM wheels are up for bid on eBay.
