As for fitment, ive done some research and ill be getting the 9th gen tire size with either wheel set up. Either way if anybody could please confirm fitment of the 10th gen wheels on the 9th gen.
Ill be getting LEXANI's LXUHP-207 tires
Any advice or comment is welcomed, thanks. Screenshot_2019-01-02-16-49-11_1546551515994.png

I'm with Coastie. You're not having any luck finding used wheels?

I havnt bothered too. Is there any reason i shouldn't get brand new replicas?
I might end up getting the 10th gen wheels just too see how it looks, i still got another month to buy them anyways.

If brand new replicas are what you want, then, no, there's no reason to not get them! I just thought you might be able to save some money on used and get genuine OEM.

I finally recieved my wheel today, i went with the 10th gen civic wheel and I love how it looks.I can't wait to install it!
Im looking to install them near the end of march, im currently stuck at deciding which lug nuts i should use.
Continue using my stock acorn nuts with the one lock

Have all lock nuts

Or use 4 open ended nuts with the one lock nut

Im leaning towards the all locks look but i want to hear your input thanks!

Well i finally got to install my wheels and the 1.5 inch drop springs on my two-tone civic. I like it. I think my steering feels lighter, these tires definitely have less road noise. Merry Christmas!
Wow! It looks great! You made the right choice for sure.

Looking good, and once the springs settle it'll drop a little more.
Really? Cute. I never thought it would have to "settle in". When i first installed them, it lifted me an inch then i drove bck and forth as a joke and it settled and dropped.

Wait so you put lowering springs on and it raised the car an inch before you drove it?

Well i put them on upside down, the car some how got raised an inch. Then they settled and it dropped. I wasnt aware that they had to settle so i tried putting them upside down and thats were it is now hahah. Its quite a rough ride, turning is quick and awsome but god i feel it more when i hit bumps or even the slightest pothole.
