33" tires. Old school measurement for off road tires, most are metric now. I call mine 35" but they are actually 315/75/16. I think the only true imperial off road tires these days are made for 16.5" wheels, which are basically obsolete so even then there isn't much on the market. Also, rims are part of a wheel, that annoys the crap out of me.

Man you guys are really making me miss having a lifted truck. I had a nice meaty set of 36" Dick Cepek tires ready to go under my 93 Exploder, but I never lifted it enough. Kept blowing up transmissions when I still had the BFG 31x10.5's on it.

Speaking of tire/wheel sizes, I just found out yesterday that there's a such thing as a 390mm wheel, and BMW used it back in the day. I found 3 really nice looking 390mm tires while cleaning up the old shop. I think they came off of the e28 that got scrapped because it needed a flex disc.

yup, metric wheels/tires specific to euros. Short lived and nearly impossible to find tires for anymore.

Been looking for a set of Drag wheels, 3.5" skinnies up front and some 15" for slicks in the back. Just finding 4x100 front skinnies is nearly impossible, and the ones I can find are going to be $700+ for two with tires...

Well I've got 3 tires if anyone needs them. lol (might have the 4th laying around too and just haven't found it yet) So that must have been a Euro e28 that my boss made me scrap, huh? The car was in great shape. It MIGHT have needed brakes, but other than that the only thing wrong with it that I know of was the flex disc. The driveshaft was slapping the bottom of the car when you drove it, making the exact same noise my first e30 made when my flex disc blew up. If I had known it was such an easy fix I would have bought that car.

Skinny 4x100's shouldn't be hard to find with all the Civic's running them on the rears around here. Just do a search for "4x100 pizza cutters" and you should find some. I just did a quick search and one of the first couple links was to a forum where a guy in Chicago was selling a set of drag wheels. It was 3 years ago, but it's possible he still has them.

yeah, those tires are probably WAY too old to run safely on the street.

Most Civics seem to be running 13-14 skinnies in the rear, I need at least 15" to clear the BBK up front.

Also, this is why Honda fans get a bad name, pulled this off Honda-tech.com:
if you dont want to gring off a little on the caliper you could always add a 1/4 of an inch washers to the studs and they fit fine ...and the rear the HX should fit with no problems ...

I see nothing wrong with washers instead of real wheel spacers.

Maybe your work has a whitelist instead of a blacklist.

Maybe it's blocked because this site shares an IP address with sites such as "thepenisbetweenus.com" lol.

Woooooooooooooooooooooow really? That's fucking hilarious. I wonder how that happened. Maybe the owner is doubling up on his server space and hosting both on the same boxes? Damn honda kids. Filling their stereotypes out nicely.

Check it out http://domainbigdata.com/216.250.120.125 or http://domainbigdata.com/74.208.88.89 you can see a list of some of the domains on the same IP. That's weird, yesterday I found that 216 IP, but when I look it up this morning I see that IP as the nameserver address, and 74.208.88.89 for the domain. Either way they're both owned by 1&1. It's rare to be the only domain on an IP with a shared hosting account. I looked it up to see if you had your own IP so I could give him some alternate methods of trying to get to the site since it's blocked.

Wait, how does a penis between us relate to Honda kids? lol
