They say pictures are worth a thousand words. When I first came across pictures of this car I could only come up with 2 words: Clean & Simple. This EF civic is from the JDM motherland AKA Japan. It used to rock CST Demon Cambers, and it already looked really good, but these Work Ewing Mesh really set this car off!. I always think Chrome wheels look best on black cars, and this is proof.
Those Ewings are clean, look at the detail on these wheels: chrome with black windows accentuated with gold caps and bolts. This picture was actually the wallpaper on my desktop gor a year!
“The wheels are E-Wing Mesh 15×7 (10) all around with 10mm spacers up front and 15mm spacers in the back. Tires are 165/45R15 & 175/45R15 in the back. If it was up to us we would run an inch wider in the back though but it’s sexy regardless, don’t you think so?”
Ride height is perfect, brought down with a set of Cusco Coilovers. Can’t stop looking at those wheels.
On the street, I don’t know hats up with the mask though haha.
This car with its timeless looks will always be a classic… Bye Bye!

Say what you want, but this car is hot! Due to it’s “Stance”, this car has caused some mixed heat on some internet forums. Obviously
this car is not daily driven, but it just looks right. Not only is the car built, but the owner also took his time and built the wheels.
“So I am sure most of you have seen these. I spent nearly a year buying parts/pieces/wheels to make the set you see here. They
are the ONLY set I have ever seen on a BMW with a 5×120 bolt pattern, let alone with stepped lips ”
– internet user “KarlSpackler”
Front wheel profile, note how close the front lip
is to the ground.
Rear wheel profile, thats almost 5 inches of lip…
I do agree with the owner, not only do you 17″ SSR Formula Mesh barrels, but you hardly see 9 or 10 inch wide Formula Mesh Barrels
as well. This car has the perfect blend of Euro and JDM.
SSR Formula Mesh – Stepped Lips
17×9 +10 ~ 3.5″ lip
17×10 +0 ~ 4.75″ lip
72.56 center bore
White powdercoated faces
Black Anodized Hardware
215/35 Falken 452s front
225/35 Yoko S.Drives rear
I’m not sure if this car had a full feature anywhere, but if it does please let me know so I can add it here.
I was watching a replay of the Barret Jackson Auction Scottsdale 2011 on Speed Channel the other day and spotted this 1985 Porsche 911 wearing a nice set of one of our favorite wheels: the BBS RS. This spiecimen of RS appears to be of the 16″ variety, and color coded to the Porsche’s hue of red. They also sport full height caps and look to be at around 10″ wide in the rear. This Porsche sports a Slant Nose front end and isn’t bad either. – BBS RS Porsche 911 Cabriolet on Barrett Jackson Auctions
Many celebrities are known for thier car collection. Jay Leno has whole warehouse full of unique cars. Tim Allen and Frankie Munoz have thier collections. Jerry Sienfeld as a nice Porsche collection. Now what sets Comedian and host of “The Car Show’s” Adam Carolla’s Car Collecion Apart? He Collects Datsuns, yes the common man’s econobox maker from Japan, Datsun. Don’t get him wrong, he does have Lambo’s and Ferrari’s, but he has some nice top notch Historical Datsuns.
What a beautifully restored s30
“Scattered throughout the room, bathed in natural light from large windows, we found a Datsun Camel GT pace car built by Bob Sharp parked next to a Paul Newman / Bob Sharp Racing IMSA 300ZX. A few feet away, sitting next to the tool cabinets with its rear wheels riding on rollers to ease movement around the shop, was a custom Datsun Roadster 1600 racer with radically-flared fenders in bright orange. (Adam hasn’t raced each of these, and he may never, but he currently participates in his share of on-track competitions in his stunning Bob Sharp Datsun 610.)”
