The perfect wheels

OK, so I just found the perfect set of wheels for the 7th gen accord coupe. One look, I'm sure you'll agree.

And I already found a great deal for a set of wheels and tires.

Ready?


Post what you think about the 5zigen mk5 wheels (do a search on google)

What would you rather have mk5 or mk6? Silver or hyperblack?
I'm thinking the mk6 hyperblacks would look good on a satin silver accord coupe.

Good job nightshift, those are the MK5 style wheels. The MK6 has 6 spokes as opposed to 5. As mentioned before, these rims are made by 5zigen. Thus, I think these wheels should not be significantly heavier than the stocks rims.

So what do you think?

And quit hindering this thread with "post pics" type related messeages. Just flip a search on google. It's really not that hard.

They also come a darker black color.

Those look kinda like a skinnier version of the AV6 6 speed wheels. They get my approval

And a good PS to boot .

actually the mk-5's look better then the mk-6's to me......and the finish more closely matches that of the graphite pearl coupe...i might have to rethink my konig theory plan and think about these:



good call!

I'm glad I have sucessfully contributed to this board.
I'm not going to take away anything from the Volks, but talk about "been there, done that."

These rims may not be the lightest ones on the market, but when it comes to wheels, your getting a set for either cosmetics or performance. I would pick these for appearance only.


I was thinking about what plum accord said, how these wheels resemble the 6 speed AV6. He/she is kinda right. Therfore, I think I would go for the MK-6 style. Proabably black rims if you have a light color, siliver if you have a dark color.

Those of you who are intrested, the best deal I found is on wheelmax.com. I think it's 1100 w/ tires. If you find a better deal, let me know. I haven't heard the best things about that company.

Nice rims mrimage. How'd you get the "H" Honda logo on your wheels?. Those wheels don't appear to have the same type of center caps that you can pick up at the dealership.
