I did not put 3 pounds of

I did not put 3 pounds of paint on them though. In any case, it is either enjoy my car while I have it or make that extra .1%. I'll make it up somewhere else, spend 10 bucks I otherwise wouldn't. It's never going to be as efficient as possible, I figure.

I think they'll look good on

I think they'll look good on the car, when I work on some more suspension **** I'll pop them on for a preview shot (again).

Thanks,

I'm currently putting my interior back in, wish I hadn't taken it out, damn me! I'll save weight some other ways though. Lots of interior will still be gone.

PS: I'll give them a final

PS: I'll give them a final weighing some day at the post office, I think the official stock weight is 9.75, so I'm thinking 10.5 or something now.

don't forget lug nuts, vx

don't forget lug nuts, vx came with some really short lug nuts, simaler to the crx hf's, honda used some longer lug nuts with their SI rims, and with the rims that used hub caps, it only added up to something like 4 ounces of extra weight, but it's unsprung weight, and if you don't need it, why have it, right?

I have *** clue where to

I have *** clue where to find some of those,

Anyway, I think that it might be neat to get the open ended honda lugs and deal with it that way.

I love to nitpick on free **** or cheap ****, but I'm planning to make this car an EV someway, and I ain't gonna need a bunch of crap to save gas when my energy independent household is charging my EV!

You can save a bit more weight by using two lugnuts.

Just kidding.

They look sweet! I'm picking up mine (HX) Sunday morning. They are in great shape so no painting required. I'm thinkin they look just like yours but are 14" and 12 lbs.
