Dvinci Blade 2 22*9.5 with hankok ventus wheels 265/35/22 ... looks really nice .. the only regret is i wish i got my tires a little bigger ... from the back they really look tiny .. hopefuly in another 10k miles or so .. sorry pictures are not all that ..

Good looking wheel... but you're right, they do look a bit small.

Either that's a bad angle or it looks like you have a bigger wheel well gap than a stock FX :shock:

no acctually its not as bad as it looks .. i was going 2 go for some springs .. but on the long run it will ruin the car .. so im just going to leave it as is . also because i have the sport package i should also have the sport tuned suspension if i am not mistaken .. so maybe the picture is not as good ..

nice car(s). it looks like you had the RSX lowered? planning on lowering the FX? (i see you made a note that lowering wouldnt be "good" in the long run.....please explain)

I think KSA is referring to increased/faster wear & tear on suspension components. As long as the drop isn't more than 2", or doesn't cause the control arms to not be parallel to the ground, it should be OK. Eibachs only lower about 1.5".

exactly what i mean .. all SPRINGS lower the car resulting in the control arms to become slanted down insted of being parallel this can cause alot of strain on them and in the long run can start making a noise and maybe something more serious especially if the aftermarket wheel weights alot more than the stock . except if u have a forged wheel which is great for u .. i had this problem on my ACURA.. i had it on my BMW x5 4.4,

Correct. But your tires are roughly an inch shorter than stock. That's why there's more gap between tire and fender.

Thats exactly what i ordered for my 22's and I'm lowered. I think that will fill the gap perfectly. The other person who was saying that your gap is bigger only has 20's on his car not 22's BTW, unless there is a stock rim in 22 i don't know about.. I would forget about all that mumbo jumbo about control arms. You obviously like for the car to LOOK different or you wouldn't have put the money into the rims. Go low bro, it will look MUCH better... Just my .02 but why go that far without finishing the job. 20mm spacers too..
