the g games wheels in 19 inches are about 23lbs, the second set of wheels are 15 lbs for 19's and volk gt7 are not availible in 19 inch yet and they are even heavier

id go with the Ray'z but id get silver, chrome is too much for my tastes and the gunmetal, well i dont think that style gunmetal would look good a silver 2k3 AV6

the bottom wheels are polished, like hre or i forged wheels, i had originally thought about the silver rays, but the silver dont match too well to the silver on the car

soryy yeah i meant polish instead of chrome.
have you tried to find any other Rays or volk wheels that match your silver, also if you dont go with the polished wheel, get one with a polished lip, give your ride a PHATT stance on them 19s

Well, I personally like gunmetal Volks so regardless of what you decide, the wheels will look tight. As for 19's, you will definitely be pimping on such "shoes"... but remember, performance will be lost... plus you gotta be more careful especially with pot holes...odometer will be inaccurate...

Not if he gets some 19" tires that are the same diameter as the stock tires. That should be no problem since 215-50-17 = 25.46" (stock), and 225-35-19 = 25.20" and 235-35-19 = 24.48". Take your pick, either one is close enough to make no difference worth noticing.

thanks for opinions, the 19 polished wheels really look good in person, look similar to hre wheels which are not passe, chrome on the other hand, is IMO, the gunmetal rims look tight in person also, but because of the way the spokes curve the wheel looks small at some angles and the gunmetal wheel is over 8-9 lbs heavier
your opinions are helping me decide, and the camber kit is for the rear of the accord, i can hook people up with a guy that will sell them for about $130-140 shipped

Well that kinda depends on the car, ive read a test that tirerack and road and tr4ack did on a BMW 540i a while back and when they went to 19" wheels, even tho they maintained the same stock diameter, the slalom speed was less, upsprunfg weight can be a major factor in countering the benefits of fitting bigger wheels.
but you are correct tho, if stock dia. is amintained it sould be all good. but theyre are exceptions.

^^^I think the main performance hit they were talking about is the fact that the heaviest part of the rim is far from the centerline of the wheel.

wheel weight is important because not only does the engine have to push them along (like with the rest of the car), it also has to spin them. 19's are harder to spin than a smaller wheel of the same exact overall weight.

Are the polished set Centerlines? I like the company and their devotion to producing lightweight forged wheels, but I really don't like their designs.

A guy I work with has those gunmetal wheels (I think it is the exact same wheel) (18" or 19") on his 03 Silver Altima and they look amazing in person.

I don't like chrome wheels much anyway..

Where can I get these rims? Did you get them yet? If yes, how do you look in person?
