    2nd Gen. Snowflakes on 4th gen

    Any one try them and ow did theht look. I know I'd be going to a 15" wheel which may be kind of dumb, but I think it would be aesthetically pleasing.

    I've got some gold snowflakes for my 78 and I think it would be cool.

    No offense man, but I think that would look absolutely horrible.

    A fifteen inch wheel will look TINY on a 4th gen, and the offset is all wrong, the wheels will stick way out.

    None taken.Offset, didn't even cross my mind. I didn't think 15 inch would like that much smaller but after seeing pictures of my talon with 15 and 17 inch wheels, I agree.

    I just like the snow flakes.

    I'd say it's pretty far away from owning civic with a fart tube.
    One's trying to use a wheel from a predessesor, something like a nod o a previous generation.
    One is trying to sound fast when it's not.

    I didn't know, I'll have to check it out as I think it would look pretty good.
    But I have a set of snowflakes in the garage, thought I could put them to good use
