Whats a good price for RSX type S wheels?

I am trying to get a hold of a set of RSX type S wheels for my 5th gen but I have a couple of questions.. A guy has a set, he said one of them has a little curb rash the rest are perfect, it has 2 brand new tires and 2 w/ 70% tread. What is a good price for them? My second question is, are the stock RSX wheel/tire set ups the same diameter overall? I am just wondering if the speedo will be off?

Re: Whats a good price for RSX type S wheels?

They're not the same overall diameter...IIRC the rsx type-s comes with 215/45 tires which is a little bigger than stock prelude setup of 205/50. Better ask him what size tires they are. Not saying you can't run that setup but...I think you'd prefer 215/40 on a 17" rim.

I run the 215/45r17 and actually my speedo is on now.

No rubbing or anything. Also that way you get a little better ride.


As for price? They are cheaper than what I paid back almost 2 years ago now. Really it boils down to what you want to pay for them and what they are worth to you.

i paid $450 total and ended up w/ 7 of them... LOL


stock tires for the rsx type s rims are exactly what Honda4Life has wrapped around his.

offer that guy $400 and see if he bites. that price is more than fair!

get some pics :photo: up once you get em

Do you have 1 that I could buy? Or does anyone else know where i could get 1. The wheel that he said was "curbed" is almost undriveable.

i have 3 extras... 1 is for a backup and the other 2 are curbed pretty bad. i'd sell a curbed one to you for $50 plus ship and you can just get it repaired.

Let Me Know

Re: Whats a good price for RSX type S wheels?

Ok guys here is the deal, I picked up the wheels for $400 3 are perfect and 1 is beat up a little (you can see in the pic) I found a killer deal on a set of 215 45 17 yokohama S drives, they are literally almost brand new (they still have the factory paint on them and the little rubber hairs on the side) I snagged them for $300! Here are pics:

Not too bad, I saw a set all four with new tires only about 700 miles on them go on eBay for about $900 they were mint though, so pretty good find.

i purchased 7 of them bc the 2 guys i bought from would not part out the sets. i have 3 left since 4 are mounted. 1 i'm keeping in case i fuk one up the other 2 are curbed and pretty nasty buy i'd part w/ each of them for $60 each plus ship or pick up is avail too. you can contact an auto body shop to get them repaired.

they look hott as hell and it's HONDA OEM so i don't care what other ppl have. it's kinda like sayin you wouldn't buy a CF hood cuz too many ppl have em or JDM fogs...
the way i look at my lude, your lude and everyone else's lude is this. do whatever you want to your lude, it's yours, so do what makes you happy and don't pay attention to ppl who talk shyt.
