Sorry for the double bump but I got some rough picture so far.
It's the week before finals week so I won't be posting anything new or updates, but
this is a pretty big update if you ask me
The bumper and lip (replaced) has been repainted as well.

The wheels are
Work Emotion CR-ULTIMATES (Kiwami)
18x9.5+30
Color is Matte Bronze.
245/40 Nitto Invos (Front)
235/40 Falken FK452 (Rear)
Tucking No rub what?
AKM83, fitment sound familiar? haha

Please excuse the wheel gap, this isn't final, will lower it before Toyotafest.
and after I finish my secret project haha.
And excuse the dried tire gel/lube , my courtesy of my friend who was mounting the tires,
didn't wanna take a chance that might scratch my rims
.
.
.
.
.
.
.
.
.
Who's up for some meaty BECAUSE-RACE-CAR fitment?



Fronts



Rears



How do you guys like this kind of reverse-staggered look?

Nitto Invo's run a little big, and Falkens are made for the stretch, that's why there's such
a big difference between 245/40 and 235/40s. Looks kind of lopsided lol
So much more grip now and I can properly lay down the power :p

Bad pictures, more coming soon!

Actually from afar you can't really tell, but once i lower the fronts, everything should look smoother and you cant really tell that its reverse staggered!

and I use Meguiars Endurance Tire Gel :p

Best finish I've seen on tires.

Lol you're so troll man haha

thin rubber band tires on 22s? no thanks

that's not what reverse stagger is! it's the width not the diameter.

Now I don't have much torque steer and so much grip. Maybe it's just from the 245s not so much the reverse stagger :p

Lol!

That Meguiars endurance gel is real nice, gotta settle for the endurance spray around here but it holds up quite nice as well. I like the rims a lot, they do look like your old rims though.

Haha I hope the Endurance spray is just as good. The gel stays on for 3-4 weeks at least for me.
Starts fading after 6-8 weeks :p
One of the top contenders for best tire gel i've seen (i troll detailig forums )

Thanks a lot
Man it was a hard decision, I just couldn't find a set I truly liked.
I felt comfortable with the Work Emotions CR-Kai and loved the way they look,
just the fitment/staggered was not on point enough.
So after playing around with some spacers and then my previous VMRs, I knew what fitment
I was looking and absolutely love how they look.

I'm really sorry I cant get more/better pictures yet but I am planning to do a full detail before toyotafest along with more updates along the way

Wow, 245/40 tires up front? Thats pretty damn big. So do you get any rubbing issues when turning the steering wheel all the way?

On a side note, How can a car with an engine producing 250 lbs of torque come with 215/55 tires ..? What were Toyota engineers thinking?

haha yeah man i like how 9.5 +30 sits...a functional medium between tucked and flush

i love those wheels and was seriously considering buying your old works to switch it up and kind of wish i had

i guess it's not true staggered since the wheels are all the same width, but running meatier tires in the front will probably raise a few eyebrows at toyotafest haha

Yeah I had a set of 245/40s from before I tried to tuck them in the rears, but the rears wheel wells are smaller than the fronts (figures, FWD ) and so I thought of going with 235/40 all around, but might as well put the 245s to use

and I know right? Even my girlfriend's accord 2008 i4 = 225/50s..c'mon toyota cut us some slack but I think they did it for MPG purposes.

Lol hey man if anyone ever needs hookups Work wheels (or almost any wheels), feel free to PM me.
i can get a slight discount on things :p
Thanks though, i feel like they match extremely well with our cars!
and yeah it's not true reverse staggered (i think i've seen a track civic si with 18x10.5 in the front and 18x8.5 in the back), doesn't really matter as the rear tires are essentially being towed anyway.

you also can't really tell it's meatier from afar (at least right now before i clean em up)
but yeah it's definitely cool looking (and different!)

The reverse staggered look definitely isn't that bad. Looks like that's what I'm gonna go for on my first setup

Thanks for the pics... keep em coming!!

Lol i simply had a set of 245/40s that I tried to fit in the rears when I had my previous set but it did not work well..rubrubrub all day :p
So I heard from my friends that FWD track cars such as Civics reverse-stagger and so I was like,
why not? since we have a smaller wheel well in the back, fill em both up with rubber!

But tbh, I think the max we can fit in the rears is a 225/40 and the max in the front is 245/40.

235/40 with max camber is do-able with fender shave, but anyway.

Thanks for the kind words!

But anyway if anyone needs wheels or certain pats, feel free to PM me like i said above.

The shop I go to is a Euro tuning shop lol

review


my close friend picked up a set of wheels on the same day and wrote a review about them.

So I'm looking to get some center caps to cover up the wheel nut,
Work offers 2 kinds, raised and flat faced.
Which one are you guys feeling?
The right one is the ultimate, and left was my ex-wheels
raised face.


flat face.




Here's one more picture about how my car sits right now, just got done with finals week so
I can continue getting ready for the T.O.R.C. Toyotafest Car show on May 5th.

A few more mods coming in the immediate week, gonna finish up my secret project along with some other goodies. And Eyezack87 needs to give me my strut bar so I'll post pics when that gets installed.

If you guys didn't know I'm about to put in an order for more Toyotanation Lanyards
because of the upcoming demand!

I know I leave a lot of feedback on everyone's threads and I was just wondering what you guys think about my car as it stands. And I would definitely love feedback and what you guys have to say on which type of center cap fits the best. I'm going for that clean look, obviously not OEM but just clean. But yeah if you guys have any criticisms or opinions, i'd love to hear it
