Ok thanx man..
A friend of mines running 215-35-18 on a sir hatch lowered n had problems he had to raise it back.
On Friday last i went ahead and bought a set of Kumhu Escta ku31 205-45-17. Reviews where good needed some smooth riding quite tires. Haven't installed them on car yet. Will be redoin entire suspension with superpro bushings, spc camber kit with d koni yellows n gc coilovers hoping to get a good ride.

If Enkei was smart they'd continue to make those wheels :roll:

Damn, dat cut too close, allyuh hadda remember d offset.
Narrie did u find the offset?
I see, those tyres good, but depends on load& ride height you may encounter problems.
Congrats on the purchase though, I miss my Honda :(

Those are enkei shoguns not arashi. They are heavy as fcuk tho and u don't have a correct set.
The shoguns are directional and face the same way on both sides of the car
