I don't have pics but from what I have seen the CL-S rims (01-02) have thicker spokes than the TL-S rims.

CL-S rims look better on the Accord coupe IMO than the TL-S ones. But try to find some other OEM rims since the CL-S rims have been done to death. The optional 5 spoke rims for the TSX look very good .

I believe other than shape difference, TL-S is 17x6.5 and CL-S is 17x7. If you look at the wheels carefully, CL-S wheels seem to be a bit wider than TL-S wheels.
CL-S rims have spokes protruding out at the lip compared to TL-S, so you will get scratches easier during parallel parking. In my opion, CL-S rims look better.

TL-S rims look better IMO. the thicker spokes of the CL rims make them look smaller and they portrude out more making it more prone to curbing
