.........would you still invest about $500 in new rims on it? Or just keep the wheels stock? Just looking for some opinions here, thanks.

I have a 2009 Civic LX with steel wheels and plastic hubcaps, by the way.

most of us will eventually sell or trade our cars...but if you want rims get rims...if you dont mind the steelies and hubs then rock them

IMO aftermarket parts on a car wont increase the value. In most cases it actually decreases the value. Wheels are more of a cosmetic upgrade and everyones tastes are different. So in otherwards wheels you like someone else might not.

If you want rims then get them. When you sell your car put the old ones back on and sell your custom ones. You will never get all your money back, but that's life

Well since my Civic is very special to me I will never sell it. In 30 years it will be a very nice lawn ornament, but never out of my possession. If I were in your shoes I'd not throw the $500. away if your getting rid of it. Resale on rims sucks if you can even find a buyer. Unless you got some super fancy Volks or something.
