I'm doing one last mcok-up of my build for Cranky's "Naked" CB, and I need you help! Help me decide which wheels look the best.

Here are the choices:

1. Honda Silver 5-spokes (a.k.a. "Blades")
2. Silver Mugen 5-spokes
3. Chrome Mugen M-5's (a.k.a. "Spider Webs")
4. Gunmetal Acura Integra Type R wheels

Thanks for looking,

Steve

I'd pick 3 - distinctive, and their delicacy goes with the car.

i like the gunmetal ones and the stock honda ones. The honda ones are the only ones that would fit the car in real life (4 lug vs 5 lug )

If you wanted to get real technical Scott, you can make 5 lug wheels fit. You just have to change the hubs to Acura Integra Type R's. Very common swap in the tuner world.

Very true. Swapping over to 5-lug opens up more opportunities for wheel/tire combos.

Thanks to everyone for the feedback. I'm kinda surprised that the opinions are almost as split as my parts box options lol. My intent for this CB project was for a reasonable stock Civic with mild mmods. That is why I built this kit as Left hand drive and stock height suspension. The only things left to do is add the wheels and glass. Sorry to disapoint some of you looking for the "slammed" look, but maybe my next Honda build ;) . I was leaning towards the Mugen M-5's that I purchased specifically for this build or the Type R wheels (mainly because my daily driver is a Silver Acura with Gunmetal rims B) ). There's no denying that the box stock "Blades" look good as well.

I guess we'll have to see what the final product looks like :D .
