Im sure you all remember this photo shop picture


below is now my new current setup on my ride I change the game up completely on what this car looks like. New wheels, new suspension fully setup, custom exhaust just to start with so much more in the works. Hope everyone likes it. I will say right off the bat if your not into lowered cars or modding any vehicle this thread is not for you. :)

Enjoy!
shot of the debadged rear, new exshaust thanks to www.robearacing.com
new fully adjustable coilovers thanks for help from www.xlevelonline.com
and a very special thanks to Leo and Vossen wheels for making my visualization come to life! 20x10.5 all around yes they fit and no they do not rub driving daily! www.vossenwheels.com
mmmmmm those curves, pure fitment at its finest and once adjustable arms are installed she will got a bit lower for shows.

Look for Vossens full photo and video shoot online in march. This will be my setup for 2012 car show season. few other mods in the works I will update as they comes along.

I'm one of those guys who do my best to keep my cars as factory as possible, but I've got to say the car looks great. Did you paint the top black?

On a side note... I think my CT will be the first car I put aftermarket wheels on. I recall Crashmaster wanting to darken things up a bit. On mine, I've considered removing the badging in the back, which is what I think I saw you did, and slightly tinting the lights. If I did that though, the wheels would definately have to go. I'm guessing this will all happen in a few years, when the tires need to be changed.

I honestly think Honda missed the mark when it comes to wheels on the CT. It appears as though they were going for a tough car look and missed the sporty part altogether. While I don't imagine it's a mistake, people tell me it reminds them of Porsche's new car... Panamera I think.

I'd love to see Honda take notice of your car and consider it a concept of what they should be offering on the CT. Again... It looks great.

Jay, you mentioned my wheels and they are currently off getting a darker 'satin black' paint job. I'll send some pictures when it is done. As for the above special cars, I worry about suspension issues. I have to wonder about hitting a bump while turning. It does not appear to be enough fender space. I would like to see a few more pictures of the wheels and tires.

I am definitely a big fan of how this came out as it is exactly my style. I got my white CT back in November just because I also wanted that photoshopped pic to come to Life. I been searching online and I haven't seen one that I like that even comes close to this...

I have only added HID's so far due to it being winter but am looking to order the suspension and wheels in the next few weeks. What suspension do you currently have? also do you have the AWD model?

***PICK MY WHEELS PLEASE****

I'm planning a black CT project for FisherHonda.com wholesale parts site showcase car (www.AllDiscountParts.com). I'm going with Mikedct's original lowering setup on my BLACK car. Need everyone's opinons on 20" wheels on my BLACK CT. Here are the considerations;

1. TSW Rivage in BLACK: http://www.tsw.com/alloy_wheels_rivage.php
2. Demoda Concerto MACHINED with MIRROR LIP: http://www.demodaconcept.com/concerto.htm
3. Demoda Aviator MACHINED with MIRROR LIP: http://www.demodaconcept.com/aviator.htm
4. MRR HR4: http://mrrwheels.com/hr4.html
5. TSW Vortex in HYPER SILVER: http://www.tsw.com/alloy_wheels_vortex.php

PLACE YOUR VOTE PLZ! If anyone has the time and is great with editing, I'd love to see a photoshop of any of these.

Congrats Mike! Looks amazing and thx of all the emailed advice. Also, thx to "Starbai" for his photoshop skills on the black CT that inspired Mike and me!

thanks mark, and now that Ive seen the new TSW those would look hot in the black with the machinced bevled edges. Stick with a 20 inch 5 spoke and your car will turn out hot. If you wanna do a big face wheel like the others MRR also has a concave wheel that would look sick as well I will email a pic of it.
