So, I apologize in advance for my noobishness, as I'm kinda new to this.

Basically, I have a 2010 EX that I'm working on. As of now, I've just lowered it by installing Megan Racing coilovers. Next on my list is wheels and tires. I need a low profile so they don't rub, but want a wider stance. So I was thinking 185/45-15s and going with a 15x8 wheel.

Any thoughts or input would be vastly appreciated. :]

You got a red 2010 huh? Is it the tango red pearl? I think black is a good color to match the red paint. Id like to black the head lamps and get the 2012 tail lights that have the black accents.

You arent too far from me so to speak. We are going to have a meet up in MD in May. You going?

I think it's called Tango Red, yes. I wanted to get smoked out tail lights for it after I finish with the wheels and tires. I'd like to have it eco modded for the most part.

And depends, when in May and where in Maryland? :]

This is going to sound ridiculous, but how can you replace the radio when it takes up half the dash and has the hazards intergrated into the head unit? Wouldn't you have to rip the dash apart and rewire the hazards? :eek:

Also, update: I've settled on 17x7 Tenzo Concept 10 wheels and 205/40r17 tires. I should have them the end of this month. :D Next up is HID head and fog lights and tinting my tail lights.

It is very common for aftermarket companies to make replacement dash
parts to fit single and double din car stereo. One person here actually wanted the OEM glossy look and bought the actual Honda part that is used on NAV equipped models.

Also, if you have never upgraded a factory head unit or speakers, Metra (and others) have wiring adapters that make it really easy and reversible. One end plugs into the factory connector and the other end has labeled wires (or standard flat spade connectors in the case of speakers)
