I am also looking for Type S rims here in Karachi. My car already has aftermarket 17 inch rims but I recently hit a concrete protrusion on the road real hard and one of the rims got bent. But mine is total 'saadi' one with pretty much no options. However it does have factory body kit and Mugen spoiler so it does look nice.
And yes the steering is really hard, doesn't even feel like power steering at times. I also have a Civic Turbo and just like you I feel a world of difference between the weights of their respective steerings.
