Hey Gang,
A local Honda dealer brought in a all new Accord for a wheel and tire install last night so I thought I would share. They went with a 20x8.5 +35 Gianelle Yerevan in Matte Black with 255/35R20 Falken tire. I was super impressed with all the new feature Honda is bringing to the table. Now to the pics:thmsup:

It's amazing how much a different set of wheels can change the overall appearance of a car.

Funny this thread would pop up today. Got a flat tire took it to the dealership and guess what, they scratched the hell out of the rim putting the tire back on it after fixing it. Pretty pissed right now
Free replacement or refinish?

the 20's look horrible. 20's are just too big, looks like a monster truck.

nope, a drop isn't gonna fix it for me. 20's are just not proportional for the car

TOO BIG

size does matter

20s look good on the 9th gen with the rite offset to tuck, then combine with a nice drop!

I'm planning on buying a Sport trim and I really like the stock wheels. However, im sure in about a year or two there is going to be one at every other corner here in Southern California. Thus, I would like to paint the stock wheels black to make the car stand out and give it a little bit of an edge. Have any of you guys ever had your stock wheels painted before? About how much would it cost for a decent paint job?

Also, if any of you guys have any Photoshop experience it would be awesome if you guys can paint the stock wheels black on a "modern steel metallic" Sport to see how it would look. Thanks in Advance.

Sounds like a reasonable price assuming the wheels stay looking fresh for a good amount of time. You should definitely post pics of your white on black coupe, im sure its gonna look badass.

WOW! I just did some quick research on Plasti Dip and I can't believe it's that cheap. I thought you meant you were going to pay $100 for each can. I just saw a website selling a "matte finish" kit that includes 4 cans for about $25. :banana:
