    Looks good, arr you going to keep them gold or respray? I think it might be better with a darker gold/bronze color. 225/45 is a awesome size for 17's, plenty of sidewall and meat for contact. As always your accord is looking sweet.

    Yeah they look OK, but up close the edges are chipping like crazy, when I was test fitting the wheels the lug holes were chipping. It was super annoying but that's what happens when you spray paint wheels without good prep work.

    Thanks bro, I'll probably end up spray painting them silver, I'm not a big fan of dark colored wheels. Although I'm really interested in spraying them "mag blue" but I feel like it'll be harder to sell down the line.

    XXR wheels are sold. I really need to put on the new wheels and S2K steering wheel, but school and clinical is taking up so much of my time. );

    The s2k wheel will look nice, your luck your already a stage 2 airbag setup, should be nice and easy install. I want to change my steering wheel but i the two wheels i want the rsx or s2k i need to swap the airbag charge. Ive done that work enough so its not too hard but the price is what kills me.

    ^ Yeah I'm excited, I'm really glad my buddy practically gave me the steering wheel. It's going to be such a nice upgrade.

    How have I gone through 2 sets of wheels and I haven't even driven on either of them yet? Haha, sorry fellas did a straight trade for these bad boys. 17x8 +25 17x9 +16 with 215/45/17 tires all around. Previous owner said one wheel is bent but I can't see it cosmetically, he says all it needs is new wheel weights and balancing but I feel like its bent structurally. Hopefully it's not too bad, I don't mind paying for it to get fixed cause this trade was a straight come up. I'm back in the real wheel gang! Oh and the wheels are plastidipped black, which I will be ripping off soon enough. :)

    I finally rolled my fenders today!! We’re one step closer to putting on the wheels. I’m not sure if I want to lower the rear to match the front or raise the front to match the rear. Decisions.. decisions..

    I peeled the Plastidip off today and the wheels look so much better! I took the wheels to a tire shop and sadly the passenger side wheel is bent. The car shakes going > 60MPH, so I just put back the stock wheels. I'm going to try and bring the bent wheel to VR Wheels on Monday and see if they can do anything about it. I really like how the car looks and I hope I can salvage the messed up wheel.

    The wheels look much better without the Plasti Dip. If VR Wheel can't salvage the messed up wheel, there's a place in Camarillo that might be able to.
