Tires are P235/60SR-17 Bridgestone Dueler H/T D684 II

whats funny is on the review's they didnt do pretty good
& i heard the first version was on the crv and EVERYONE hated them

however yesterday in the HORRIBLE snowstorm
i was flying thru with NO problems, no sliding anything

i think the heavier wheels, wider & more contact patch helped the element significantly but i have nothing to compare it to since i only did one night of "light" snow driving with the oem wheels w/ dunlops'

X those Wheels look awesome, I jealous that I didn't think of that. Were the wheels expensive and did you buy them straight from an Acura dealer?

here's the story

i just copied & pasted it from where i posted it on Clubsi

oh and YES i'm crazy :)


Well last night i went to my gf's picked her up went out to for Dinner than went to see Hide & seek... She had to be up for work early today
so we were gonna go home but decided to take a spin to where we had our first kiss by the bridge & park to "chill" ;) ;) ;)
SOooo anyhow....
We pull up and see a Nissan altima with the windows fogged out... pay it no mind so we're talking and kissing whatever.....
than a newer honda car pulls up... & there's only ONE person in it ... but he's like RIGHT NEXT TO THE ALTIMA ..
and occsionally i'm looking over and see him staring at my car
So the altima leaves ( guess he was weirded out )
so i proceed to see the car back up BEHIND my truck and continue staring in my ****......
Was ABOUT to leave when he leaves first... So i'm like finally!
All of a sudden the ****wad CIRCLES the block and aims his **** at my truck with the HIGHBEAMS ON to see in ....
HERES WHERE IT GETS GOOD
i throw the car in DRIVE go chase the ****wad with the HID's blazing
than pull up on his passenger side and start KNOCKING on his window to open it up and apologize to my GF for being disrespectful.
( at this time he's a TAD scared... looks like a ZELDA PLAYER )
So we both pull away from the stop sign and get to a red light
More of the same he's staring straight and was a little frazzled
So me (who needs anger management) let's him pull away
than i speed up on his left cut him off
HITTING HIS CAR with my wheel lol and ripping his bumper off
than i jumped out of the car 0and started yelling at him
he nearly **** his pants
than he speeds off
LEAVING HIS BUMPER!! :laugh1:
than i went home :laugh1:
rim's a little scraped & i ordered a fresh new one today off Ebay :headbang:
I just found it disrespectful what he was doing & if he didnt flash his lights i wouldn't have gotten so "hot tempered"
That was my "eventful night"
Yes i KNOW i overreacted HOWEVER i don't think he will EVER do something like that again :headbang:
RIP = TL wheel :wtf:
