VX wheels for Sale -- Quebec, Canada --

Hi fellow Ecomodders,

I bought these a few months ago with the intention of installing them on my Toyota Echo, but they didn't clear the front brake calipers and the wheels have been in storage ever since.

I am posting the sale here first, at a lower asking price, to show my gratitude towards this great online community that is ecomodder.

Price is CAD$100 for the set.

I would buy this in a heartbeat if I had a Civic. Really sad that they don't fit in the front. Would be awesome to see an Echo on VX wheels.

Have you thought about using wheel spacers to clear the disc?
They come in a wide assortment of sizes.

Tried with 5mm spacers and it still did not clear. Decided to keep the heavier, but still lightweight Mazda Miata wheels.

I'd buy those if you weren't 2 days drive away haha. Too bad shipping would be more than the wheels. That's a great deal though, should sell no problem. I paid $150 for my last set in about the same condition, and I was really luck to find them, and that was 3 or 4 years ago. We only had the VX for 2 years in Canada, so if you are out east and want a set, grab these.

Do you think they would fit and clear the front brake calipers on a 96 Civic (EK) with 4x100 bolt pattern? If yes I think I will try them and buy them if they really fit. Maybe we can set a rendez-vous so I can try one of them on the front. I'm Really interested in those wheels XD.

California98Civic is running VX wheels on his 1998 civic. Perhaps he can share his experience.
