    Have 95 NSX that came with 18" Enkei Aegis. How much?

    I'm just wondering how much this guy paid for the wheels new. Not sure of width, but 18" on all 4.

    Also, it has 215/35/18 on the front, what is the next step wider? The tires he as on it seem a little narrow for the wheel...

    Enkei Aegis rim specifications are here. I can't remember how much I payed for them...sorry Might want to call Ben at Wheels Boutique for the latest prices.

    I previously had 18x8.5 (f) w/215-35 and 19x9.5 (r) w/265-30 and the front rim was too small for the tire. I am presently running J-line rims. I still have the Enkei wheels. Here is a pic of them on my car before I did the widebody with a 25mm spacer in the rear.

    Looks just like mine. I've got a 95 Targa with 18" Aegis on it. Just got it last week and can't wait to get home from my business trip to drive it!

    I have ground control coilovers and I installed them on the car myself

    Here is my take on lowering cars, if you know you are going to ever want to raise or lower the car because of possibly going through different rim setups, tired of scraping in the front and guaranteed ride height satisfaction (where you exactly want it), then I recommend coilovers.

    Eibachs on stock shocks will be cheaper but in my opinion a lot more work to put on the car. If you do a search on PRIME, you will find some old discussions on this.

    Any wider, and you run a good chance of rubbing on the wheel well liners. Even with the next step wider (225/35-18), some owners have reported rubbing, although some others have not.

    The NSX was designed with a rather narrow front wheel well, so that the driver's legs are positioned straight ahead, rather than at an offset angle.
    NSX. Spread the word.

    The wheels on the front look too wide for the 215's so that is why i ask. I bought the car with the wheels on it and it looks great but that is the only issue. I'll leave well enough alone...



    BTW - here is my 85 Capri I have fun with in straight lines. Best ET of 11.25@124MPH (With stock bottom end and 170000 miles)

    And a pic of my new NSX.. Finally

    P.S. My car came with same Enkie rims, but it appears they retail in the 600-700.00 each depending on size and hyper silver or chrome finish....Brent

    Wow, i had no idea they were worth that much. Are the outside of the rims suposed to be polished aluminum? I started to polish the lip and it looks better...

    Re: Have 95 NSX that came with 18" Enkei Aegis. How much?

    i have the Aegis 18" all around in Chrome finish. works fine, had them for almost a year now, i love the classic look. i'm thinking about lowering a bit 'cuz the front is too high with 18s and stock spring and shocks. may i ask what coil over do you recomment? i'm thinking about the Tein RAs but worries about the ride qualty since i drive my NSX daily.

    btw, Ageis are pretty expensive wheels, not to mention the tires too! how much did u paid for your NSX if you don't mind me asking.

    The lip should be clear coated, be careful when polishing. Brent
