^ had those on my 07 Civic Hybrid... Looked nice. Worked well. Am sure I sacrificed some mileage.. Noted when traded it in for me CR-Z, it (my Civic Hybrid) sold the next day. I still see it around and still looks good.

similar thing happened to me.....

i traded my 07 civic EX (dropped, Si wheels, full tint....)

it sold just a couple days after they got done certifying it

i had it for 3 years exactly and kept it flawless!!!

I'm confused about something- maybe someone can get me on the right track. I've seen many, many threads discussing rim weights. Of course, the larger diameter rims are going to weight more because there's more metal. But, wouldn't the tire be somewhat less weight and thus compensate a bit? Should we be talking about "wheel" (i.e., rim and tire) weight combined? I realize this may be a little challenging with so many tire combos possible, but with unsprung weight being the equivalent of 4x the sprung weight (so I'm told), isnt talking about just the rim weights only part of the equation?

our stock tires (195/55-16 dunlop sp sport 7000) are 19 lbs each

tires for aftermarket wheels are gonna be heavier 24-26 lbs each (depending)

continental DW's are probably some of the lightest (20-22 lb. area)

I know it is a kill-joy, but out of all the wheels I've seen - cannot find anything I would want to replace my aluminum Honda OEM 17" with - after the lowering and rear spacers... Still waiting to find something..
