Lookin at these 3 rims

What's up guys, i'm lookin to buy some new rims this week for my black accord. I've narrowed it down (i think) to three different rims, the Tenze mean 6, passion 5, and RS 5, all in a gloss black finish with chrome lip. Here are the links to a pic of each of them, tell me what you think.

Mean-6 : http://www.tenzoracingsports.com/roa...n-6/index.html

Passion 5 : http://www.tenzoracingsports.com/roa...n-5/index.html

RS5 : http://www.wheelsnext.com/product.ph...&inum=&large=1

Thanks.

I'm all about the Passion 5.
Don't forget pics! I'm still wheel shopping for my NBP.

I like the RS5s on 7th gens....the Mean 6 in 18s look too small for the 7th gens IMO...I have the mean 6s in black on my 6th gen and it looks good....but I've seen the RS5s only in gunmetal on 7th gens...but in black....they look sweet

thanks for the input guys, i still can't decide betseen the three of them. Thinking either the passion 5 or the mean 6. The RS5's are clean but aren't quite what i'm lookin for. I'll be sure to post pics when i get them.

Mean6 doesn't look as good as in pics.

I remember back in the days when I had my av6, I looked into Tenzo rims.
Mean 6 was one of my option too. but after I saw one in real life, it turned me off.

I say go with Passion-5. Very stylish. Just make sure you don't get anything smaller than 18s.
17s look small on accords.
Not to mention Dark color wheels + polished lip = makes the wheel look alot smaller than it actually is.

Hmm, still can't decide between the mean 6 or the passion 5, in my opinion both look pretty sick. As far as getting a 19 in rim, i live in denver colorado, and the roads blow here. Plus 19's are out of my price range.

Yeah. That looks sick. who's av6 is that.. that is freaking beautiful.

but my opinion still stands... After I saw few of those on integras and spec-Vs..
I decided that its not as good as it looks online.

Don't get me wrong though. Im just saying, that I expected MUCH more when I saw the pics of the Mean-6s.
It still looks pretty sweet compare to other damn uglyass wheels.

To thread starter, why not look into some other brands?
Tenzo wheels aren't cheapest either.. if tenzo 18s are your price range,
you should find alot more that might fit your price range in wheelmax.com.
(even though that isn't the best place to order wheels. many complaints.
then again, many successes.)
