Lol this place used to be Canada wih Rick

Thanks for the input. I know the tire choices are few. Was actually planning to do this next year when the car comes off the road. Trying to stockpile parts now so I don't sit on my *** like last winter

Two of the guys I share shop space with own RHD Civics. They're a huge pain in the ***. Totally not as cool as you'd think they would be.

I see RHD CRX's, Preludes, Civics, Integras etc. rolling around locally and wonder ... "why the hell would you import that ---- when you can get a Skyline, RX7, Supra etc."?

From an engineering solid mechanics standpoint, the longer studs with spacers are the better, safer choice.

Most flares don't flow with the side crease and most don't extend far enough down the body panel. I've only seen one set that start at the crease. IMO this gives most of them a tacked on look.

If you are getting spacers to fill flares for wheels that already fit, yes straight up homosexual. Not the type of gay where its just a normal dude who plows dudes, like the annoying in your face west hollywood super fabulous gay.

Have you ever seen a flared miata running 15x8 wheels with spacers? It looks like a broken skateboard from behind.

If you are getting flares to stuff in big tires and wheels, rad.

If you have flares and anything less than a 245mm tire, you are failing really, really hard.
