Those rims really make the hatch look complete. Best part about them is that they are easy to find, cheap, and simple. Looks good!

How much did the gsr rims run you? I've been thinking of picking up a pair for the old gen2. Was trying for some crx si rims but I can't get my hands on any, I know a guy who has 3 sets and wont part with one.

I really think these rims will do the car well.

I paid $450 for them with near new Nitto 450s on them. Almost as much as the tires would be alone, so I think I did alright.

The Prelude arms will be on soon to correct my little camber problem, now I'm just waiting for some time to put them and my new fuel injectors in.

There's an SE-i at my local boneyard with the rims still on it. One missing centercap and needs new tires but the rims are in good shape. If anyone is interested, I can pull and ship for ya.

Actually this color was only available on Hatchbacks from 88 and 89 I thought ... the 86-87 was darker I've been told.

I need some new lug nuts ... :rolleyes:

The balljoints come seperate from the "A" control arms?:confused:
That is so cool! I guess you learn something new everyday!:D
Please confirm my theory!

Yeah on the prelude arms i believe they do. On our arms there are connected so when ur balljoints are gone u have to buy the whole freakin arm! i am going to do that conversion also! :pimp:

Sure, the Prelude arms us a sliding scale to adjust the camber, bascially it is two pieces, one attached to the wheel well, and one attached to the ball joint. Quite a nice idea and it looks to be an easy install also.

The ball joint is replaceable alone for around $35.
