Nice winter setup.

Word of caution though, OEM Honda nuts are ball seat, steelies are usually taper seat.

Should really get the proper seating nuts to hold on those wheels.

Did you just get a pair or a set?

Getting a set is a better idea, because you don't want your tail to throw out when you brake.. (then you will be at fault).. vs getting stuck.
