not really
a D17 with an automatic transmission is one of the worst Honda engine/tranny combos out there as far as modding goes. The only thing I can think of that's worse is like a D15B8 or something. lol

highly not recommended. 18's are too big IMO and many others'. The reasonable limit is generally accepted as 17"

I have some 17" rims i'll have for sale starting monday or tuesday next week, if you're interested. They're the ones in my sig. PM me for details. I live in Titusville.

They're hyperblack, which is kind of a gunmetal/silverish color.

They're Azul Cross 6 wheels, with Nexen N5000 205/40/17 tires.
They're 17"x7" with a +40mm offset

Two tires have 50-60% tread left, and two have around 30-40%. Two rims are slightly bent (not as in twisted, but as in dented) on the inner lip from a pothole, but the guys at this shop were able to bend both of them back to nearly perfect shape.
They don't leak air, and they don't wobble. They perform as if they were never bent. The bend/dent is on the inner lip, it is not visible when the wheels are on the car.

Two rims have very minor surface scratches from when they were accidentally set on their faces on my driveway when I was working on the car with the wheels off.

Tires were recently balanced.

I used the wheels and tires since December '07 (one year and one month ago).

I'll also include: (all are used)
-muteki tuner lug nuts (16)
-extra muteki tuner lug nuts (8 i think)
-locking lug nuts (4, one for each wheel)
-all lug nut keys
-hub centric rings
-chrome valve stem caps
-a spare tire (Fuzion ZRi 205/40/17) that is nearly brand new (used it for like 500 miles and took it off to replace with matching Nexen) for just incase you run over a nail and the tire is unpatchable.

Looking to get $300 for everything. (paid $670 for everything new, and $60 for that other tire; just to give you an idea)
