Which rims should I choose?

Hi Guys,

I am thinking to put some rims to my Eternal Blue Coupe vic, since winter is over . But I wonder what color of rims should I choose (black, gun metal, silver) that matched best to my Blue. Here are some rims that I have in mind, Let me know what you guys think. Thanks

Here is my vic:


motegi RT5 black,silver




motegi FF7 silver, gun metal, black

Yeah, I prefer the RT5 more than FF7 but too bad RT5 doesn't come with gun metal color. Do you guys know any other good rims out there?

For some reason I think bronze would look good on that color...

I wonder if I tint my window 35% and change the headlight to black housing, will it be better to go with black rims or it doesn't make much different?

I like Sub Zero rims from Rota, what do you guys think?

bronze is ugly i think. you want the rim to compliment the car, blue and gold compliment one another, blue and bronze (shiney brown) dont lol

don't get either motegi wheel. RT5s are ugly and FF7s are too common. Try and find something on ROTA b/c they are cheap

Hey Guys,

Thanks for all of the inputs. I have been looking at some of the Rota's rims, some of them look cool. I wonder where can I find a good deal on Rota's rim. I checked on ebay, they don't seem to have many in it.

This rim I found it on rota website, do you guys know where is the best place to buy this rim. I hope that they have black or gun metal for this rim.

I wont get motegi's because I think that most people in my area has them and they are kinda heavy. Plus not much of the good looking ones are 16"s. I would go with Rota's, they look good and are light.

bronze, gold, and silver are your best options as far as color. there are many other good wheel companies besides motegi, so search around. and do me a favor and take that pinstripe off. thanks.

Motegi's suck. They suck more then a ***** at a vacuum cleaner convention. Not only are they heavy, like you said, they don't balance worth ****. When I worked at good ol Wal-Mart TLE, I saw a guy come in with some 16 inch Motegis, about a month old, not bent in the least bit, and they took about 4-5 ounces each to balance. For comparison, the worst rim on my car took 2.75, and it's bent to hell.

LOL Yeah I'll take that off.

Wow I never know that Motegi have such a bad wheel. The only reason I choose Motegi was because I went to Sears Auto and they recommend Motegi to me. Well I am changing my mind now after I went to Discount Tire co. Here are some rims that I found pretty cool





Do you guys know the performance of those brands (MB Wheels, Rage, LiquidMetal)? and which one do you think is the most fit to my car?

I think that's maybe just the sample picture. I searched by my car and picked out some of those wheels, and they do have 4-100 bolt pattern for them. I am not quite sure about gold man, I think it would be too shine without adding body kit and drop my car. I still have my 1 1/2 years extended warranty from honda so, I am not planning to drop my car pretty soon. What do you think?

truthfully i think cars look really funny not being dropped and having rims, it makes them look like 4x4s but i still think the gold compliments the blue the most.
