Thanks,I Put the First Coat of Cleaner wax to it for the year, Still have to put the Meguires NXT on yet.

Actually I put the Summer Tires Back on and the Caps Back on Today after having them off all winter,

The Rims have a few Cancer Spots on them otherwise they would be off.

I'm debating to buy another set of Rims and just mounting the summer Tires on them and using these ones for the Winter.

Maybe in the Fall i'm already Getting Sick Of mounting and Dismounting Tires every Spring and Fall on this car and I Bought the car a year ago this Month, My Old Sunfire Had Winter and Summer Tires/Wheels and it was great.

I could do the changeover in the yard as apposed having to go to the shop.

And also these are not the easiest Tires to switch over either with the low pro sidewalls.

Nice looking car. I would count a driveway as a photo shoot. I have two sets of wheels and the factory aluminium are the winter ones.

I'd gladly change wheels myself than go to a shop. Why does have lower profile wheels make it harder to swap wheels?

What wheels were you looking at? Chrome would look good, but get these:

No Sorry I should have said that a little better, what I mean I Work at the GM Dealership here and we have shop days on Saturdays where we can take our own cars in and work on them.

I Done My Winter to Summer Tire Changeover Today.

I Do the Quick Jobs there as in Oil changes Tire Change overs ETC, I am not licenced yet Since I started out in the Shop in Nov, I will not start my training till next year. Allthough I have been at the Dealership for 3 years, I was the Building Caretaker Before I went out in the shop.

The Reason why the Tires are harder to changeover is as the sidewall gets smaller it also gets tougher to work with less forgiving. smaller sidewall tougher sidewall (My Tires are 215/50/R17).

Allthough I Mounted Tires harder than these.

Yeah I would love to get something like them, They are Sweet, But I would go 18". Nice Taste of Wheels.

50 series profile isn't a low pro. My stock wheels are 225/50 R16, and the sidewall is fairly meaty, as is my 17"s, 235/45 R17. Low profile is 40 and below.

And Joe, those are just Polished Chrome. :agreed: they are indeed tasty.

Thanks Joe

50 series profile tires are becoming the norm for A LOT of cars, even 45's. 70 and 60 you'll only see on most small trucks and minivans now, not cars.

After I saw Where you were from, I knew off the bat, I was Down there a couple of times and when it rains there it really rains.

More than likely he did have a CAI, not many RSX's don't have a CAI these Days.

:) NOICE!!!!!111 very very clean any plans for the 6

Thanks, No Plans right now but that could Change.

nice man. I love that color. very cool
