the C5s i think will stand out more black on black. and it has that lip around it will look nice, imo of course.

lol if you don't get the racing hart CX in white i might get those.

Dude the whites look sick on a white car. My homie got a white on white 5th gen accord, so Im thinking about getting black on black to be totally opposite, but bronze wheels looked always tempting to me. Do gloss black wheels lose their shine to them after a while?

Too long of the wait for real JDM wheels... Plus I don't really have the patience/money to get the real JDM wheels plus I would have to part them out when I sell the car and that would be a big loss, but if I didnt car I would get those they are only 700 per rim + 3 months of wait....

Get a good picture where your wheels show and have someone on this site photoshop it for you, but i would lower the car first before i bought wheels...when you buy wheels before you lower it, you might regret it cause you can only lower your car on the specs of the wheel, if you get suspension then you can test how low you want before getting rims...my opinion only tho..good luck

BTW the rh CX in silver or the bronze evo 5, black on black is played out and white wheels look weird on a black car...

I need new tires asap, the rims will just sit in my garage for coupe of weeks before I get my coilovers, its raining outta the ass anyway. I'm gonna go with bronze I guess, because that would be pretty unique out here; havent seen any accords with bronze rims. I don't need anybody to shop for me I can do it myself, but really does not help me see anything, because I can put everything on my car to make it tight but its not real . I'm gonna prolly go with Enkies EVO5 or RSVs, thought about 5Zigens FN01R-C, but they would look weird on 6th gen more of a civic rims.

C5'S FTW they were my old wheels, I had my friend buy them right after me because he liked mine but his is for a V6 5 lug univ He has not driven much on them after he moved to the ATL might of been used for less then 1 or 2 months before he took them off.

He wants to sell them infact they are just sitting around the garage, I spoke to him last week about them but did not post anything for him. They are 18X7.5 with a +44 offset I think it could be +45 but they fit fine, Black with polished lip and the tires are pretty much new paid new $1700 for them and they come with lugs nuts, center caps etc and he only wants $975 no haggle price shipped or $900 picked up if I'm correct. He now lives in Atlanta needs to buy a new car so if your intrested let me know.

Another local friend of mine's has the Enkei RSV's on his 6th gen and he's bent or cracked his wheels 3 or 4 times, Enkei on good will gave him free replacments I would not trust Enkei's durability at least with the RSV model.

C5s are nice though only negative part about them they are not authenic Racing Hart Japan made wheels just iminations. Where are they made? Though Racing Hart CX is real, but I don't like the design.

Its the new white, ahha .. I agree with the bad quality of the Enkei's .. I say stick with BRONZE. Not too many accords black with bronze wheels .. Bronze NOT Gold just to clear that up .. Those Racing harts would be SUPER easy to get repowder coated bronze . Now that would look SICK !

I hope that's not what your counting on to get the ladies to drop their panty's lol. But I don't have a problem with how Enkie's look but they quality and durability sucks for sure. Don't get something only because no ones has them, I don't care who has my rims as long as I like them I'm going to buy them it's always nice to be uniqe but if your not willing to spend $2000-$4000 on wheels then your going to still see your Enkie's around on other accord's, civic's, teg's etc just my 2cents. For example if you really want to be different why don't you go all out and get something custom made, vtecaznracer did that and got him self a custom set of JLINE wheels you can be uniqe but as I said it won't be cheap.

Werd! It took me 4-5 months to get my Work wheels from Japan. If I knew it would take that long, I would've ordered them last winter instead of end of spring. I just got them on 2 weeks ago and it's fall now . It'll probably come off pretty soon.

Gunmetal is hella ugly on black imo...I like the bronze or black on a black car, but lip has to be polished...honestly Enkeis are too played, I'd rather do what smokedout said I can powder coat them Bronze those C5s or the CXs, and get a better quality rim. I don't know what girls be droppin their panties for Enkei wheels, lol I know some ladies that drive way sicker cars...that I do. I want to go with quality and durability at the sametime...with looks.

don't listen to the guys that opposed my comment. I'm tellin' you man, you'll get the honeys with the bronze enkei's. They are just tryin' to make you purchase the "typical" accord RH's because they want you to have the same wheels as them. lol.

Do it. Do it!

If you don't believe me, you'll end up getting RH's and no chicks. lol.
