well 16'' is as big as i would go. but pretty much any wheel that has a 4x100 lug pattern. look around in our gallery at some hatches. find some wheels you like. or you can go to google images or any other search engine and type in EG hatch. with just a quick search i found 1000+ hatches.

Yeah i know honda is the highest stolen car, and actually i wanna get my alarm but its too expensive for me to get the power lock, i asked future shop and they'll charge me around 300$ for the installation and 2 doors power lock. Do u know where i can get the cheaper one?
And can u explain me about the kill switch what for is that?
And how about the club? do u mean join a club?
Sorry man i'm not from here, so maybe i have some problem with some word hehehe anyway,
Thanks a lot for your advise, really appreciate that.

Hmmm I didnt think your car came with one, does it have a factory alarm? And a factory alarm is crap.

_JOSH_
Wow Thank you so much for the advise man, I will get the alarm as soon as possible and forget the wheels hehehe, but anyway can u tell me where i can get power lock cheaper than future shop or visions? I dont need the alarm system because i got one here, just hasnt install only.
well my alarm is arctic start, i got this from the boxing day only 28$ and its key less entry too, What do you think? is it good enough?
And what else you suggest for me to get to prevent those silly theft?
Thanks buddy
appreciate that

Theres nothing you can really do to keep your car, cause in the end they can always tow it if the want the car that bad. Some ways to prevent it though are:
-Lojack
-an alarm that is installed correctly(hide everything) paging alarm is even better
-with the alarm install extra options like hood and trunk pins, batter backup, more sensors

there are more, just be smart who you show stuff thats on your car and where you park.

350$ for your alarm? where do you get it?include the installation and power lock?or your car has originally power lock?
"For a cheaper price you just going to need to call around and get a quote"-> what do you mean?call where?
Well, yeah i know if they really want my car they will tow it and its even easier hehehe...
what is lojack? can you explain it to me?
Thanks man, appreciate that.
