HFP EP-R5 17" 5 Spoke Rims

Hi V6P, I drive a 2006 Accord Coupe V6 and I finally decided to buy some new rims. I'm trying to buy 4 new HFP EP-R5 17" 5 Spoke rims.

Does anybody know where I can get them for a good price? (CollegeHillsHonda.com for $725 + $109 UPS Ground shipping)

Also, do I also need chrome "H" marks, exposed wheel locks, unexposed wheel locks, and short lug nuts?

Buy 18's, it will look better. Check the classified section. 17's are pretty weak. I've seen oem 18's for around $400

Thanks for the recommendation Michaellowrider, but I really like the design on the HFP EP-R5 17" Rims. If Honda makes the same rims in 18" I'd get them instead.

Sorry about that toinkee69. I'll follow this thread for updates.

You asked for a tire recommendation in the will it fit thread, and since that is not the proper place, I will answer here. Low pro tires on 17's will look small and throw off your speedo and odo and increase your wheel gap. I had hankook v12 in 225/45r17 and I liked them but it looked too small, it only looks good if your slammed tucking tire. With that said, if you must I recommend those in that size as it is the closest to stock while still looking low profile. The stock 215/50r17 size doesn't look very low pro no matter what brand/style. I went the opposite with my current tires, falken zeix 329 in 225/50r17, not low pro but still sporty looking and fills out the wheel well much better.

michaellowrider, thanks for the info. You just convinced me not to get low profile tires for my 17" rims : )

I think I'll just keep my tires for now but switch my rims to HFP EP-R5 17" 5 Spoke Rims. I'm still looking for these for a good price but they're hard to find... I only saw for Civics with 45 offsets.

The CIVIC one with 45 offsets will work fine on ACCORD as long as its the 5 bolt

^ funkbro2, aren't both Civic and Accord EP-R5 5 bolt? And doesn't Accord need spacers if we install 45 offset rims?
