since when did these become turtle rims? anyway i think they are SE/LS rims?

And i'm gonna be biased and say the no center cap because it looks better on a lowered car, plus u save weight LOL

sidenote: you should paint them black, that'd be sick and you'd be the FIRST on TI to rock them.

Fuzzy refers to them as SE's I think. The "turtle shell" rims are off the '97-'00 Acura 1.6EL's.

BTW, +1 for no centre caps. Those extra wide centre caps make the rims look unproportioned (unproportionate? :S ) IMO.

Old EL rims are turtle rims. Anyways no centrecaps - with centrecaps is ugly.

I was just thinking I had those rims (without caps) on my civic si hatch like 7-8 years ago. Damn Ive been in the modding scene a long *** time I even had clear tailights for a short time when clear lights were the newest ---- around (not altezza but clears)

aren't snowflakes another name for meshies/webs?

they look better without the centercaps in those two pics, even though the car without them is lowered, imo.

"Snowflakes" = 96 GS-R/Special Edition

Meshies/Webs = 97-98 GSR/99-01 GS/LS optional


BTW No center caps, gunmetal and dumped

I know my camber and toe settings are all off
