Rsx rims and drop it. I personally don't think the 18's look to good. Just my opinion

Re: Which rims?

I had 18's on mine and got rid of them because they didnt ride well and too heavy. I would say the 16's

18's


16's


16's= better mpg, less flats due to pot holes and quicker throttle response depending on how heavy the others are.

This is just my 2 cents. and being that the 16's are lighter than the 18's which i am guessing they are.

Re: Which rims?

I even find my 17's heavy and I know quite a few RSX owners to find the stock 17's really heavy. I wouldn't use 18's but that's just me. Either light weight 17's or 16's.

Dude are preludes look alike Your old 18's look like my current rims and those are the RSX rims I wanna get. Yeah you made the exact point for why I wanna get some 16's. Mine feel heavy aswell and I can't get my car aligned 100%. What tire size do you have exactly man? looks good not to thick or 2 thin....

Re: Which rims?

Why do people take something that is such a personal taste (such as rims) and ask everybody else what they think? It's your car, your bank and you're the one that's gonna have to sit in it day in, day out. Buy the rims that YOU like.

Re: Which rims?

I think he is asking more about size than looks. Performance and what other people have expirenced with theres to make a better decission on what he wants to do. Yes rims are very personal and probably the most interchangeable part of a car that defines it but I am very willing to take suggegstions on what might look better than others and see what performs better. that is why i chose to go from 18's to 16's, and i love it...

But then Again man, brash is right. If you like the rim get it. It is all personal choice. Pick what you want to look at when you walk out and see your car in the drive way.

And i Have a bigger tire in the back then on the front for mine.
Front: 205/45/16

Rear: 205/50/16

I am about to repaint them i think. Not sure though. really debating on color Ideas..

Yes I am. I care about performance more than looks but looks do have to do alot with what I want. I like both my current rims and the RSX and I'll choose what I want RSX is my choice.


Hmm... what's the reason for having a bigger rear tires?
Looks good man. Maybe a Metalic Black Dupli-color

Re: Which rims?

no reason. just gives it a more staggered sporty look i found a picture with it. Not a great shot but i am repainting my wheels this weekend and doing the breaks so i will take a picture and post it then. but this is it now.



Still kinda debating on wheel color but i have it narrowed down.
