I've been struggling finding a rim I like for my TW FA5. I see everyone getting 17's and 18's. Is there anyone with just 16's? other than stock?

I think 16's would look great with a good drop like mine...I know most of you will think I'm nuts :dancing:

I'm not even totally sure what wheel I would get just yet, even if it was a 16" will, but it would be something with black spokes and a nice polished lip...like rota gt3/drag dr-16 and some Falken RT-615



I would end up getting 215/45 tires for the falkens...yeah I know my speedo will be 4.1% off with that...but I don't care that my speedo shows 60mph when I'm going 57...it could only keep me from getting a speeding ticket ;)


Here's some photoshopping I did

With and with out wheels to see the difference

Not only will your speedo be off but you'll accrue miles faster on your odometer.

I'm sure this won't be your only set of wheels like your EP3.:biggrin:

im riding with 04 rsx wheels that are 16's. im rolling with a 55 profile tires i believe. and the profile on stock si wheels are 45 i think so im not sure about that whole mileage thing. when i clean the gunmetal paint off that the last douche of an owner put on the wheels, i'll take pics. but i think they look sexy as hell. its funny how i think they look better than my stock Si wheels, yet they're my winter beater wheels. i got them for $300 with new tires. they were painted gunmetal but the guy didnt prep the wheels, so the paint rubs off and the wheels are completely mint underneath. i just need to powerwash them.

as long as you make up for it for example - stock is 215/45/17 as long as you get 215/55/16's your speedo wont be wrong

yeah, you're right, that would add on more miles, but not by much....not like I would care though :p I'd have to go with a series tire I wouldn't like to keep it about the same diameter.

I was hoping someone had pics :(

thanks man, those are nice, but I'm not wanting to spend that much money. I used to buy works, they are by far my favorite rim, but I don't want to spend that much.
