I think some bronze or gold rims would look great on a green lude. If money isn't an issue then i would suggest some light weight wheels like rota, volk or rays. Other than that I think it would look great on stock rims witha nice drop.

For a green car I would definatly say silver or what I see as "hyper silver". Its a simulated chrome/silver look thats painted rather than chrome that weighs alot. If you have the money to spend try and find some light weight wheels. As previously said Motegi Track lights are a great wheel for the money(still expensive) however, flat black only. Its really personal preference. I thought a nice clean straight 5 spoke wheel with a nice dish would look good. I went with a multi spoke after my buddy mocked them up on my car. Also for winter wheels I have 7 spoke wheels off an 04 Accord. Gotta say they look real nice for a factory wheel.

05-06 RSX-S rims FTW. They look like they should have come with the car.

^^ yup i agree with Brash.. i think TEL's car looks sick. probably because those are similar to my rims.. but still i dig the polished lip.

I noticed nevrdun had a double post all i can say is FUK time warner cable right now.. their sh.i.t is F'ed up right now.. i double posted last night and i've been trying to edit/fix it but for some reason i can't.. off topic but maybe others are having that issue??
