If you're buying a car that isn't luxury, you're not going to get nice OEM wheels. I do, however, like most of the wheels that BMW offer in their Sport Packages. E39 5 series for example.

I agree with you. BMW cars comes with really good looking wheels which I always admire.:notworthy

I second that, I loved my OEM wheels (2004 I4 EXL).
Really!? You want a extra set cuz I hate those damn wheels. LOL! I cringe when I have to put them on for the winter. The exact reason why I'm in the market for some stock 04-06 TL wheels for next winter.

I like the OEMs. I wish that they were in better shape- the previous owner rashed a couple of them pretty badly. If I had the cash I might consider a different set of OEM or Acura rims and use the ones I have for some snow tires.
This statement applies EXACTLY to me.

Id love to get some TL-S wheels, or 8th gen V6 coupe wheels. I dont like the idea of aftermarket wheels on my 4 banger automatic honda.

If they look nice I prefer to powder coat them black or gold/bronze... my choices of color. But yeah if they're cool then you don't need new rims.. maybe just new color? and low pros!

^^ the problem with ALL black wheels is that it just looks like a dark hole where your wheels should be in your pictures. They look dirty all the time. Maybe becaues your ridin dirty....lol. You need at least a chrome lip to set it off and attract your eye to them.

I like my OEM wheels, but I may exchange them for something less common.

Everytime I purchase a vehicle I always make it a point to get a feature I did not have on my previous ride. My last ride had ok wheels and and an ok radio so my next ride had to have a really nice set of wheels and a really good radio. Long story short I bought aftermarket rims for my old ride bc I hated my oems, and was annoyed the other model of the car I got had the better wheels ...

The point of this thread for those who have to purchase rims is would you be less likely to if your car came with a very nice set of oems?
I never felt the need to since Enkei make the 9 spoke 2007-07 V6 AT wheels. After 2007, honda started perfecting that 9 spoke design more and more for the 9th gen 9 spoke versions. Any other car, I might just to stand out a little but alos for lighter wheels for better gas mileage. :naughty:

My 2011 sedan has caps an steeliness, yuk!!! So, I'm looking for some nice ones. My plan is to find some gorgeous 16's so I can keep the excellent rubber that is on there. It's a money issue for now. Or, I will wait till I need new rubber and go for some 18 inch package.

However my HHR came with killa five spoke polished alloy's so we kept them.

So to answer the question, we would not change if they are nice!
