Why I didn't take a closer pic? Well I have, just didn't post them.

Just for you bro
LOl damn I'd rather take the bus if my ride had those rims on!

Gold rims look sweet on white accords but your rims look way too small. They would look much better on a civic.

That look seems a bit dated, like you are driving a 1980's Bimmer with BBS wheels. But if you like it, go with it.

OH Please GOD, take those things off.... Not only are they embarrassingly small, but the spoke pattern is atrocious... You're making your accord cry.

As far as gold on white... Let Subaru stick to that...

You know... They make lightweight wheels in 17" and bigger, right????

In that second set of pictures, your real wheel looks pushed towards the rear a little bit. Not the best looking wheel size, but they don't look horrible. I say keep them just to be able to run something different from time to time.

Looks like you found a nice set of winter rims or track rims. Considering how light they are I'd seriously consider using them as a track wheel. Slap some slicks and you're ready to rock. Although I can't imagine that huge sidewall could be particularly beneficial during cornering.

It would help in the winter though. Small rim and large sidewall is what you'd want in the snow. Either way, you could put them to very good use.

I don't like how it looks from a rational point of view, but my funky side is kind of attracted to them. Kind of.

Yeah like I said, I have would no choice anyway but to keep these on until I save up for new wheels.

Anyway next question, what color to paint the gold part? Gunmetal? Black? White? I was thinking Gunmetal. Opinions?

I like it fine gold. Just clean it up a bit and it'll look good (relatively speaking).
