BLACK & WHITE photoshot

24 August 2004
On an older thread, I posted up some of my wheels and asked for the community's opinion as to which wheel set up you guys like best and it seems the Volks SF-Challenge won hands down across the board.


I do like the car with the SF's 19/18 set up, but I can't seem to motivate myself to put the Volk's back on as I think I really like how the 02+ OEMs look on my car. Also, after a day at NIGUEL MOTORS (new clutch + headers) the car drives and response sooooooo nicely now. The SF-Challenge looks nice and yes...it added a bit of bling which was nice, but did feel very heavy when driving the car. I didn't notice at first how heavy my car felt sense I ran nothing but 19/18 since day one when I first purchased the car, but now with the smaller wheel set up, clutch, and headers....wow! I'm loving how she drives now. The next step I guess would just to go FI, but for now, I think I'm going to stick with this current set up.

Had some time to do a photoshot so here are some pics I just wanted to share.

Just some pics of my current set up.




Looking great, I see the brides are out... wondering who's going to be getting them??? :biggrin:
Looks nice and agree that the OEM rims give much more driving pleasure. Have you thought about painting the mirrors black ... IMO would look good with the CF hood

I love it, you gotta roll with what works and on a white NSX, the NSX-R OEM looks never gets old to me. True, straight up JDM, flavor:biggrin: That being said, Id go with the 02+ side skirts and replace the one's you currently have:wink:
glad you went with the 02+ oem wheels with spacers. It looks 10x's better now.
man....your car looks gorgeous.... every time i see a non 02+ like yours, i wonder if doing the conversion i'll be doing the right thing :confused: :confused:
What's up Hac?

Great pics.... I like this one the best..


I know what you mean regarding the weight of the wheels. I just replaced the 18/19's Work Meisters S1 with 18/19's Advans AVS Model 5's and I could tell the difference between the two sets. The Advans are much lighter which made my NSX feel very different in a very positive way.

So, the Advans may not be as responsive as the 17/17's that your sporting now, but if you ever decide to go back to 18/19's there are some options to consider.

Besides, you know what they say;

Ladies Love 18/19's on an NSX :biggrin:

Hey Hac I just noticed your lug nuts are different than my OEM ones. Make sure they have a ball seat(OEM) and not the conical seat for aftermarket rims.
LIES! That's a color photo, not black and white! :tongue: :wink:

JK looks good man hehe. :biggrin:
Great pictures.. You using a SLR? Your baby looks like it still has OEM paint on it. :)

Actually...those pictures where taken with a point and shot camera. lol..just played with angles and manual settings alot and yes...90% of my car is still OEM GPW. :smile: it's getting harder and harder by the day to keep it OEM color. I'm trying but my battle is coming to a losing one..and one day I will have to spray her down entirely.
Just revisited this and have some questions ...

what size spaces are you running on the OEM 17's please?
Have you any clearance/rubbing issues?
What effects on handling?

Thanx in advance, Paul
old thread but i just saw it.

great looking car. everything looks great.

still not sure if i like the OEM unpainted lip with such an aggressive side skirt(lower than oem)
