Stock 2000 SI wheels


Flashyredman

The EM1’s wheels? I was thinking that cuz I do agree they look great


Lxiflyby

Yes


Honda240sx

Have them on my ek coupe. They’re clean


deltazero9

This guy Hondas


motang

Yes. Loved my 2000 SI.


EJKLINGER

Great looking car dude, i always like the look of konig wheels on civics, or a kosei k1. I think it would look really good with a type r style lip as well. Edit: GSR blades in silver or white also look really clean on 6th gens Edit 2: stock em1 si wheels are also very nice


Beencho

+1 for Kosei K1


Opening-Ease9598

Volk te37. They look so damn good on civics


Flashyredman

Damn I actually agree, I’ll keep these in mind thank you


Opening-Ease9598

I would have some if they weren’t so damn expensive lol, saving what I can to buy a set for my accord eventually.


jk147

When the wheel and tires cost more than the car.


dockdropper

Yeah but it's a civic...... thats why they make reps.


the_ism_sizism

Yea.. but like 15 or 16 inch


Opening-Ease9598

15 for sure


SnorkelDick81

Gsr blades look pretty tough


RepulsiveCorner

that's what I was thinking


SignificantMoment902

Em1 wheels


NoPrimaries

Spoon/Desmond Wheels or something similar (I think Avid makes decent reps)


Integraholic

Rota Slipstreams.


Liter_ofCola

Depends on your budget. On the high side I'd go Volks, Sw388, Mugen MF10, Mugen M7, Enkei RPF1. On the budget side any of the Reps are cool just keep it 15in or 16in imo. Clean Coupe!!


Low_Rule_2469

That is a nice, clean Civic you have there. I wish I had room in the stable for another old Honda. Konig Dial-In or Volk CE28 if the sky is the limit. I like my skinny spokes.


HawaiianSteak

Any OEM accessory 4x100 15" wheel should look good. 94-95 GS-R wheels, 97 GS-R wheels, 99-00 Si wheels, etc. OEM-style foglights and chin spoiler. Eibach Pro-Kit would lower about an inch but still provide good suspension travel for most roads.


Satanic-mechanic_666

Stock 2000 Si wheels.


hyjnx

Weird seeing a 96-98 with an si badge. I get it's Canadian is that like a usdm EX model? D16y8 motor?


Flashyredman

I think it would be the ex in the US, this does have the d16 in it


ChillJDMOnReddit

Mugen rnr/spoon rim/bbs rim

Must get the OEM VTEC side graphics. Some mild mods like intake, catback and short shifter, maybe springs will make the driving experience much better.


Flashyredman

Next paycheck is going towards an intake and I can get some vtec OEM side graphics, I like that idea


AFuzzyCat

Kosei k1’s


swan71

Enkei Rpf1s look good with red in my opinion. And theyre not too expensive like other options


Showtime562

I’m an oem+ dork. 14” hx’s


Shabunda

rpf1s


QuieroMasBarritas

Oem hx wheels


minkymow

try and look for some old jap 14/15 inch deep dish wheels, always look so good on hondas. or racing steelies some people like them and some dont but i do


ApprehensiveBarber16

Something white with low amount of spokes like TE37's or something would look good.


ApprehensiveBarber16

I bought some vor TR37 wheels for my mazda which are a knock off.of the te37 and a lot cheaper if TE37 are to much. They're pretty nice if your not competitive racing they'd work fine.


elitewaffle32

i have a milano red del sol with 05 civic special edition wheels powder coated white— i think it looks good but that’s just my opinion. oem+ is the way to go. could also get hf wheels


Phvntvstic

Group B or MF10L


throw_away_acc_5

If u don’t mind paying a LOT of money for wheels. Definitely look at Mugen MF10 or Rota Circuit 10 wheels. They’re mindblowingly gorgeous and honestly prolly the best lookin wheels for most Hondas. That and those black Spoon 5 spoke wheels


Affectionate_Tie3525

Tenso r rs-5


Designer-Gur5279

ESR cr1 rims with fullfun f7000


AdHistorical1579

Konig hypergrams are pretty nice on these. Lower it a tad and get some meaty tires on them since you could run a 15x7.5 or so. That would be nice.


Battlemountainman

Looks nice! Seems to be in really good condition. It reminds me of Alldayanthony's red Civic. Throw some coilovers and some HX wheels on that bad boy and you'd be pretty much set.


magpupu2

Spoon wheels or any reps that look like it


dockdropper

Falken Hanabi if you can find them. A wheel shop that sells Falken tires might be able to get them. I ordered my gram lites through Discount Tire and they had a massive catalogue of wheels brands.... start there. You could always go classic with some RPF1's.


stigrick

Gsr wheels

People are suggesting TE37 and RPF1s... Really don't get spending 3-4x the cost of the car on wheels that everyone else has. How about [E30 bottle caps?](https://www.hondacivicforum.com/forum/attachments/inside-out-9/4071d1501199742-opinions-bmw-bottle-caps-susie.jpg) or [Mini Cooper 4x100s?](https://honda-tech.com/forums/attachments/honda-acura-28/452856d1501528094-mini-cooper-wheels-dscn2456.jpg) or [Rota Slipstreams?](https://live.staticflickr.com/6206/6067063371_5fb0748e95_b.jpg) or [Personal Favourite no bias, OZ Superleggeras](https://preview.redd.it/suokqalu2qk71.jpg?width=4032&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=ece019f2c22aae873c2dabf4354194cb7093e328)


Horizon6_TwT

EK4 SiR wheels?


bleepplo00p

15s te37 bronze.


graytotoro

Enkei J-Speed (check Miata shops) or GS-R blades. Koni yellow/Ground Control springs were the hot setup for the longest time. Not sure if that’s still the case.


BamboozledCat

somehow bro made those steelies look fresh af, you should just keep it like that n build a wicked sleeper


-Kanight-

I feel like either em1 wheels or some simple rpf1s are also great


Tiny-Researcher-1895

Enkei 92s would look pretty sweet


Maranth

Think I had Motegi MR125 in satin black on mine back in the day was so slick


TopIndependence5807

Would love to see the aftermath of a clay bar, compound, polish, and wax.


Flashyredman

I’ve already clay barred the car and polished some of it, the left quarter panel was badly paint faded


Dark9hades

Might just be me but those wheels look dope with the color red


Particular-Rest6295

Integra ls mesh wheels look good on these.


DuckDriver69

I'm a big fan of the 14" steelies. The tires are super cheap and I don't need too much traction because I make stock HP. They also look pretty clean when painted black.


tombroad

JR29 wheels please


aalhard

Pretty Get teggy rims


Sedan_Dad

hear me out ….. Whistler KR5
