Couldn't you just look through a list of all the wheels that would fit your car and then choose a set that you like? None of us are you and so we don't know what you like. If you want suggestions then at least provide us with a small taste of what cars and styles you like. Without that we might as well just post every Civic ever fitted with aftermarket wheels.

I'll admit I had to google FA5. There's a few codes that should be recognizable to enthusiasts. S13, S14, S15, E30, E36, E46, EF, EG, EK, NA, NB, NC, AW11, SW20, GC, GD, FC, FD, AE86, etc. Most of those are common knowledge. Using the chassis code as shorthand really only works if everyone understands the shorthand.

LOL @ $2200 for both.

A good set of wheels (in at LEAST a 17x8 to fit that car) are going to be $1500-1800...unless you buy some knockoff heavyweight garbage.

FYI, for all you "wheel and coilover experts".... I have legit 3 piece wheels on my car in 18X9/10 and good coilvers and spent about $2K.

It can be done.

HOWEVER... OP is a lazy fuck.

I'm sure that there are plenty of nice sets that can be had for his budget, but without an idea of what it is I'm supposed to be looking for (does he want to track this, stance it, just lower it and keep it usable?, Does OP have an EX, LX, or Si because apparently it matters, and should more of the budget go toward coils or wheels?) this is a fool's errand. OP's car has a lot of aftermarket support. He could pretty much pick whatever it is he wants.

OP, for coilovers check Raceland Ultimos for cheap coilovers, but be aware that you get what you pay for (~$400). If you're looking to spend a little bit more go for Megan Racing EZ Streets (although they don't fit Si) for ~$800. Another set that may be better quality is the H&R Street Performance Coilover (~$980). I'll caution you about making buying decisions based solely on price. Everyone here has done it at some point and they'll all tell you that it rarely works out in the long run.

As for wheels there are way too many sets and styles to mention here, but depending on how much of your budget you spend on coils you're looking at about $250 a corner. If you can try to find something at AutoAnything.com so that you can stretch that budget by spending it all on your wheels rather than shipping. Given what I've read on forums you want to keep the offset high and close to stock (mid 30s to mid 40s) and as a personal recommendation although up to 20s are confirmed to fit I'd go with something more conservative to keep it feeling sporty.

I guess he didn't specify he wanted them to be good looking wheels...in this case...I guess it could be under 2k.

Oh burn...

Used parts are used. Just the tires for my 18s ran me nearly $800 with my wholesale account.
