Rim Opinions???

Hey guys, I'm relatively new on this site, and own a 4th gen silver honda prelude si with an f23 dohc non-vtec motor (go figure :P).

I'm planning on buying some new rims, and after much thought, these are the two that i narrowed it down to.... Please let me know what you think about how they would sit on my car, or look for that matter!

Re: Rim Opinions???

personally i'm not into the huge 17 inch wheels on preludes, unnecessary. especially since you can't slam it! they'll probably fit without rubbing though if you don't go with too wide of a tire. i couldn't see the second set since i can't log into the site, but i would say go with 205/50/16 on some sick 16 inch wheels. rotas for life! by the way it's a H23A1 DOHC non vtec engine fo' yo info! good luck on the wheel search

Re: Rim Opinions???

17s will fit fine i have them on my car my tire size is 225/75/r17. the only problem is i lowered my car a inch and a half and if u hit a pot hole they hit the plastic in your fender well makes a awful sound like you fender is getting smashed. and they make the car ride rough due to the fact u pretty much have tireless tread around a rim lol.
