I have an 08 white ex-l sedan and it came with the alloy rims and chrome covers. I'm debating whether or not to take off the covers and leave the alloys or keep them on. what do you guys and gals think?
Alloys with hub caps? Never heard of that before....
I thought you either have ugly steelies with hub caps, or nice alloy rims...but never both?
I like the look of chrome, but having chrome caps on alloy wheels might look a little silly, so I would fall back to just keeping them with the alloy look until you can get aftermarket rims or something.
Standard Chrome alloys look good on the accord. No fake chrome hubcaps. Just keep the alloys because they look nice and get a set of nicer rims later in time. Like chrome real rims if you want that chrome look. For now alloy is the way to go for sure
get some 19's or 20's, but if i had to choose either the alloys or the chrome stuff on the alloys, i would probably just leave the chrome caps on there until i got rims. people into accords would definitely notice it, but normal peeps wouldnt ever be able to tell the difference. :wave:
I'm not a fan of the chrome look just for chrome's sake. My first thought would be to do exactly what Danielc409 suggested, but you do have a point. I have had a few experiences with curbs and the right rear wheel on my Accord and the curbs always win. If they don't look terrible and if they don't damage the alloys underneath by keeping them there, then use them to protect the "real" wheels.
Best way to protect your wheels from curb rash is to just stay away from curbs heh, use a lot more caution when you are turning corners or going through drive thru's. I curbed my wheel like a couple weeks after I got them at my credit union drive thru. Now I go as slow as I can and check my mirrors etc to make sure that never happens again, but shiet happens.
