    check out your rims front to back and side to side, are they "pointing" in the same direction ? on the drivers side you have both a L and R rim,

    Honda designed them to "face" or "rotate" in a certain direction, look at the spokes on a rim, some of them lean to the left, the next rim will lean to the right if you follow my angle, they were designed for some or other reason as left and right handed rims, and if a manufacturer is going to do this, as it must have cost a fortune, they must have had a special reason to do it

    the rim should also be marked with a L or R somewhere on the lip

    from what I remember when I owned a civic with similiar rims, the spokes should not "dig" into the ground when going forward rather the opposite way around

    your rims have probably been switched at a service or in that prang you mention.

    I appreciate the advice, I'll look into it. However, please realize that these are aftermarket rims made by Enkeii, not Honda. How are supposed to rotate them?

    they look pretty much like the stock ones I had, but have a look at your car on the side !

    the front rim and the rear rim are going in different directions, the front "spokes" are in a different direction to the rear "spokes" any good wheel and tyre shop will take the tyre off the rim and swop it around side to side, while still keeping the tyre direction constant, I would be curious to know if the other side has the same problem.

    if it doesnt bother you then no sweat, just thought I would mention it

    Yes, alloys are primarily for performance-enhancing. I take it having handed alloys allows for more efficient brake cooling perhaps....?

    you need to swap the rear driver tire with either passenger front or rear wheel. i'm sure what you have right now is a byproduct of tire rotation gone wrong (appearance-wise)

    sweet setup, can't wait to see the gps mount and your on/off switch, ohh and i do see what they are saying about your rims. no big deal but just for cosmetic reasons you might want to look in to that. question, is this the car you had 13k of damage to? sweet ride!!

    gps mount

    Here is how you should run the gps receiver- run it under the rubber frame, around into the trunk.
