    After 10 years of various B series engines and cars a wanted to see what the k was like.

    Was after a dc2 or ek9, ended up settling on a k swap face lift model.
    Previous owners had build threads etc for it so starting my chapter.
    The car needed mapped when a bought it so had it done a few weeks after.
    Made 235bhp on a hard but fair Dyno.
    Been locked away over the winter but looking forward to using it soon.

    The car is still going good, puts a smile on my face when a use it.
    The mot ran out recently, needs some small things sorting to get it passed.
    A have some 98spec integra wheels for it, its on standard shocks with eibach pro springs, camber adjustment parts too.
    Am worried the rear tyres will catch on the arches if a fit them. Any information to help me??
    Its setup for better grip and handling, don't want to change it if a can.

    Think any 6-7" width wheels should fit without any major issues, providing the offset isn't too extreme. Have 15x7 et40 with 205/45 tyres on mine with no issues just for a reference.
