These are the tires I'm getting with the new rims. I had the identical tires on my Civic CX (check my Facebook) and they are the best tires I've ever had. Complete traction in any conditions. Total package is just under $2000 CDN (somewhere around $1975) but there might be additional tire taxes and recycling fees ect... i'll post pics when it's all done

Even if I didnt think those wheels were nice, which I do, thats way to much money your spending for me to be a nigger over. The last thread you made that I joked in was the cooking thread.... and come on.... the cheese monster was hillarious!

You should have no problems at all replacing your battery. All you should need is a 10mm open end wrench and maybe a pair of pliers.

Remove the ground side (negative) terminal end first then the positive with your 10mm wrench. You might have to wiggle the ends off with a pair of pliers, but thats no problem and long as you do them one at a time starting with the negative. Remove the battery hold down, also with your 10mm wrench. Sometimes those bolts can get a little rusty and be difficult taking off but I'm sure you can handle safely removing stubborn nuts and bolts. One side of your hold down bracket is attached to the frame and the other is attached to a J-hook. Just take the bolt out of the frame and you can take the hook out without even loosening it. Once the battery is out you return it to wherever you purchased it for a core return. That means you get a few bucks back for your old battery.

Install in reverse order remembering to install the positive first then the negative last. Basically the idea behind removing/installing the terminal ends in this order is so that at no point you are touching the positive end of a fully connected battery. If your tool is touching the positive end and you accidently hit anything metal on the vehicle thats not insulated then your gonna start welding without a welder, and nobody wants that. So remember, never touch the positive when the negative is already connected, unless you rape and shit. Make sure the terminal ends are nice and tight then fire it up! if you have access to a volt meter, engine running you should be in the 13-14 volt range with a good working alternator but since you said your beating around without worries after a jump, you should be fine. Go get em nigga!

Skill level needed to replace battery: 1 out of 10 :thumbsup:
