I liked how they looked on Hondarulez Type-R and figured gray on gray would look pretty good as well.

Sitting at a stop light yesterday I saw a CTR this very same color swing through an intersection in front of me, making the turn swiftly and every bit like the agile beast it is. It growled subtly as it moved through. Quite a head-turner this thing.

It certainly does have a sort of menacing "presence" in real life, and I'm sure DCR's Type R with the grey wheels will look even better. :)

It is on the way. I'm actually proud of myself for not waiting until I was screwed on the OEMs in the middle of a blizzard, which would be typical.

That's usually what happens to me though we don't get as much snow as you, more ice. Good luck with the roads.

Winter soldier. First snow and 2 idiots spun out and crashed on 131 and gave me a nice half hour delay. This doesn't bode well for the real winter weather we get.

I've got a 1300 mile round trip next week and I am debating whether or not to rent a car or take the Type-R on a real test of winter and daily activity.

If you are going to be driving in harsh weather conditions, there is always the possibility of road debris (maybe a rock) being thrown at your Type-R from a passing car or a semi.

Also, if you are going to be in unfamiliar surroundings, I would be concerned about unknown parties messing with my Type-R.

I would go with a rental.

Snow plows are pretty good at throwing debris, also.

2 cents from a previous Integra Type R owner ... S*** happens regardless of how careful you are ... drive responsibly and enjoy your car.

You will be driving the rental ... missing that you did not drive your Type R

But I also understand if you end up renting anyway

I agree - what's the point of buying it if you don't use it?

(Said he with more cars than one can drive at any one time)

FK8 or a poxy Corolla/Dodge Disappointment?

Did a round trip to Knoxville, TN this weekend. Saw a lot of dead deer and several dead coyotes on the shoulder of the road in both directions.
