Default 2006 EX-L V6 6 Speed Coupe Rims

Recently bought this car from my dad.



Now! It has 19inch rims on it that he bought with it stock (Well, as an add on)

I have never bought after market rims/tires and would like some advice if anyone doesn't mind. I would prefer a black/gunmetal finish - possibly a chrome lip but I am undecided.

I'd like to stick with 19inch rims but for handling I am okay with dropping to 18's if it would help. I also don't want to lower it anymore because of the fact that I live in Iowa and there are some bumpy spots I don't want to have to come to a slow crawl to deal with.

Also, I'm not opposed to buying new winter tires to place on the current rims if driving in the winter with specific rims is a bad idea.

I apologize ahead of time if there is a ton of posts like this. However, this is an Accord forum and I assume everyone enjoys talking about their Accords!

Thank you all!
Justin

Welcome. The first thing to consider when shopping for new rims is your budget. Some BBS LM-Rs or Volk CE28Ns would look beautiful, but without knowing your budget its hard to recommend rims that are $800 a piece.

Thank you!!

I have no budget. For rims & tires I am okay with spending up to 2k

Then I would get something higher end, that will hold its value and look good like a BBS, Volk, Work etc etc. It is going to be hard to make it look good at that ride height though.

I like this 7th gen with some Volk TE37s.

Wow.. that looks sick! I know - I would love to lower it but I will be suffering in the long run in repairs - guaranteed. Too bumpy, cracked, crappy driveways and parking lot entrances.

What do you think for size? 18 or 19? Without lowering.

What about color on a black car? I've never contemplated bronze - not sure how that would look but I am a fan of the

Volk Racing Wheels Rims TE37 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 inch Bronze
&
Volk Racing Wheels Rims CE28N 16 17 18 19 inch Silver

Thanks for the prompt responses.. I am about a month away from the purchase but want to get a good idea - I'll be photoshopping the rims on later to see for sure.

If those are 19s on it now I would stick with 19s, as with that ride height they don't even look like 19s.

As for color its hard to say, maybe a gun metal. Bronze might be a little too flashy for an otherwise stock car in my opinion.

What would you guess they look like? Yeah I can see what you mean about the flashyness though hmmm.

Originally - back when I had my 92 black lude I always wanted a gunmetal with a chrome/silver lip and it's still a thought it my mind.

Here are a few pictures I found that are similar style rims to Volks and in a few different colors.

Nice I actually like the bronze.. Those are all good finds thank you! - I meant though what did you think that the current size was if you didn't know they were already 19's?

They look like 18s, but its just the ride height that makes them look smaller.
