Alright guys, so in today’s video we are
finally unboxing a fresh set of wheels
for my 2017 Honda Civic Si. Now because
I’ve already worked with this company
for the BMW, I’m once again going with
VMR wheels. So I’ll throw his email in
the description below but, Brandon from
VMR and I have been trading emails for a
couple of weeks now, trying to
decide on what set would be best for the car.
I didn’t want to go with anything
that was too sporty, or too stance-y, or too
fancy. I wanted something that
was the kind of a happy medium for this
car, just to give it a nice unique look.
So rather than go into all the details
and then explain all the offsets and
everything like that I’m just going to
go straight to the unboxing.
Eli: I see the design!
Pawinn putting his engineering degree to
use right here… we have thermodynamics,
manufacturing process for engineering
materials, and elementary linear algebra.
Then up here in case you guys
weren’t upset about him using textbooks,
you can get upset about him using
3-series BMW manuals under his Civic.
That shows you how Palin now feels about BMWs… just just kidding don’t get actually mad at him.
all right fingers crossed this goes well
Eli: It’s rolling…
but it’s I think it’ll be ok
ok put the jack back under
just a little bit at that perfect
Pawinn: oh man,
this is gonna be really cool!
I just told Eli that any potential lowering
springs are gonna be cheaper on my car
than his Audi. He’s not too happy
Eli: I mean it makes sense because it’s now D but
they’re cheaper than GTI Springs and its a newer car.
We got the wheels test mounted on the car right here and as you can see 19×8.5″
fits pretty nicely in this wheel well in
my opinion.
So these are VMR v721’s; they are 19×8.5″ like I just said and they have a +35 millimeter offset on
all four wheels and on the rear fitment
you can see right there they’re also
tucking pretty nicely.
So the fitment so far so now I gotta
pretty much decide on the tire. Eli what
tire size are you saying was gonna be good?
A 225/40 will give them a little bit more sidewall than a 235/35 but a to
/35 is gonna be a little bit wider, so it
may look a little bit meatier… this is
from our vinyl yeah.
I think the main concern is hitting all this plastic up in here because this isn’t something you
can roll back, it’s something you would
have to cut out. I’m all-in here all
along here is plastic it’s… a yeah. It’s
pretty meaty
there’s a solid piece of plastic up in here so a 225/40 is gonna give him a little bit
more sidewall but it may push the tire
in a little bit more, /35 is gonna have
less sidewall, which may not hit as much,
but it’s gonna be wider so it might hit.
It’s an aggressive wheel fitment at +35
offset and the 8.5″
Pawinn: but it’s not…people have run it before which I chose this
offset so it’s really nice to see that
it does in fact like looks like it’s gonna fit.
Eli: I mean it’s it’s pretty flush
here so as long as you get a tire that
rolls over a little bit it should be
able to (as the wheel comes up) tuck in
and the car’s gonna naturally “camber”
itself in as well
the rear will be fine they’re a little less agressive, and there’s no plastic here, it’s just fender liner. I’m sorry I’m getting dust
Pawinn: That’s Okay.
Eli: There’s no plastic here it’s just fender which would suck if you had to roll it because there’s nothing to roll.
but there’s no big chunk of plastic.
I think the front is gonna be your place of rubbing.
Pawinn: And to further verify fitment you can see that there is no problems between
the strut tower clearances as well;
there’s nothing also that I’ve seen
below there that will pretty much rub
into… so I think this is a really good
fitment choice. So if you guys like the

check out the ignition Tube channel because you’ll see what the hell this filter is,
what the hell we’re
doing and what we’re gonna be doing next weekend to his s4.
so yeah I mean rather exciting right that’s right so we’ll catch you guys in the next video
where hopefully we’ll be putting tires onto these wheels, mounthing them doing a finaltest fit,
and finalizing it with a new set of lug nuts because right now I have ball seat lug
so I’m gonna get ones that are conical to match the wheels.
Eli: We’re trying to join Stance Nation πŸ˜€
Exactly…Bye!

  1. the stock si wheels look way better. and 19s are too big also. even the hfp 19s look baad because they are 2 big.

  2. You might rub on the tab by the side turning signal, I run a 18x 8.5 +30 offset and it always rubs on it. I am on the eibach springs

  3. Hey Pa,

    To ignitions point about the front end being the potential issue of rubbing, what would your solution be if lets say you were rubbing the liner/plastic up front?

    Thanks a bunch

  4. Pop the hood and you can see the plastic fender underliner go’s all the way in the bay so if you remove it and it rains your engine won’t be to happy with water all on it.

  5. Thats not a aggressive wheel fitment''' its the correct offset and good choice!!!! +35 or +40 are awsome fitments on hondas'''' I call it Fit Stance and tuck them rims!!!!!

  6. Do u know what are the lug nuts threads size for the OEM wheels? I'm trying to get lug nuts for the OEM wheels.

  7. I noticed that you used a floor jack to lift the car in the center between the front and rear wheels. I didn't think this was a jack point, did it bend the metal there?

  8. Idk if you'll see this but do you know the threading on the bolts for the lugs and one more question did your stock lug nuts work for those wheels or did it block
