18" or 16" , Black or silver? check the pics

So i need new tires, i might keep the 18" Tenzo rims i have now or i might buy new 16" Klasse Modena rims in either the silver or black

Heres my ride what do u all think, i'm unsure on getting black rims.
Anything else out there that would look good? I'm definetly open to suggestions.

i would say 16 cause i think 18s are too big for a lude, but your 18s look better than the other 16s your looking at soo i say stick with your 18s

I'm definetly not set on those modenas, I'm really leaning towards a 16 as these 18's on low profiles are kinda harsh too drive around on.
Any suggestions for new 16's?

Firstly, car looks great. There aren't too many kits that look any good on a 5g Prelude, but that one's pretty ok.

Looks great with the 18s on it. I think if you put 16" modenas on it you won't be quite happy with the way it looks.

But it's up to you, do what you want to.

with such an "in-your-face" body kit, i think 18's will look much better than 16's. 16's will just look too small to fill up the huge wheel well created by the body kit and sideskirts.

but i do think the modenas would look great if you got them in 18's. they're pretty nice wheels

Well i've decided to stick with the 18's till next winter, that way i can definetly replace my timing belt/water pump this summer and upgrade to a tein suspension aswell. I'm gonna go with the nitto neo gens or the falken ze912's depending on availabilty as i need them asap.

Cars still gonna look ricey but its tasteful ricey...lol

I think you made a good choice staying with the 18's. You lude is sick. I agree with Brash22 that many body kits don't look good on a 5g lude, but I am really liking yours.

i agree with the vote for 18's.. i just went from 19's to 17's and love it... i just put on my tein's which are adjustable.. so if you were to go with the 16's you could drop her down and i think it would look fine.. or just do what i did and get 17's and a drop

I couldn't go any lower than i am now. The previous owner actually took a chunk out of the...i believe tranny housing(the lowest part of the engine/tranny right next to the crossmember). Its got some kinda cement looking hard goop over it but she still has a drip now and then. Im kinda avoiding that problem right now :( lol

17's in gold on the red car would be hot.

16's will look to smal on a kitted car IMOP.

18's just give up too much ride quality IMOP.

17's is a great size for the Lude.
