recommendation for rims? pics?

Hi, just joined first post. But anyways.

I have a Red 2002 Honda Civic EX coupe. I havent done anything to it so its stock but I wanted to do a few things. I went to a few places around here to look at rims and wheels and liked the prices. But wanted to see other civic owners opinion.


I was thinking of getting black rims with a red lip to match my car, some people say get black with chrome, some say black with red lip. What do you think would look better?

Also since I dont want to spend ALOT of money I was thinking of sticking with 15inch rims so I wouldnt need new tires. Is this a smart idea? or are 15 inch waaay to small?



and question. Can someone provide some links to some rims that they recommend for my car? Im looking to spend around 500-700 for rims. keep it lower please. and FINALLLLY, does anyone have any pics of a red civic with 15inch black and (chrome or red lipped) rims on? I want to get an idea of what id look like.


THANKS

the biggest i would run is a 17, I have 17's on my 01 sedan, i had a nice lowering kit on it it looked nice the small tires made the ride less enjoyable tho. I'm gonna go with 16's on my 97 sedan. I hope it will ride better.

15 is way to small wen u have rims i think it looks stupid, but 17's are good but if yuo have a lip on the rims i think it looks better if you get 18's with a lip because it looks smaller than it really is, just my opinion! i have 17's

Re: recommendation for rims? pics?

go with 16" wheels, keep the ride and handling.

Volk GT-C in silver or Gunmetal would look good, then wrap'em in Falken 912s
