Default Honest opinion please - Enkei RP01s on "my" car



What do you guys think? Honestly

(I got a picture from someone online..who actually has the exact same year and color car! Also the exact same front lip spoiler and clear headlights! Gives me a perfect "idea" of what my car would look like)

dont like it. the car is green right?
it would click if the car was black.
i'm yet to see a green coupe that
looks good with aftermarket rims
stock or stock looking are really
the only rims that i could dig on
that car.

Black rims always look good. Maybe even Gunmetal? I'm not sure though. Maybe someone here can photoshop the wheels?

Now we're talkin'!!! I have always liked gunmetal rims. Do you guys think gunmetal would look good on a silver civic(same gen.)?

Weights for Enkei RP-01's:

Size Weight

15x7 14.3
16x6.5 14.52
16x7 15.84
17x7 17.6
17x7.5 18
17x8 18.2
17x9 20.02
18x8.5 20.68
18x9 21.34
18x9.5 23.4

In my opinion, I have always thought that the RP-01's looked a little spindly, but they're not too bad. I would definately take the gunmetal over the silver though...

Nice nice, well, the gunmetal thing kinda makes me wanna proceed and paint it that color haha. But yes, it is nice. Good thing that you have the bigger rims than mine. I have the 15's and it does look a little small but very nice for the sleeper look.

Did you not see the chart I just posted??? the LIGHTEST 17's in those wheels weigh 17.6 lbs. If you had some 17's that weighed 13 lbs, you damn well better tell me what they really are so I can get some!

The car is black...its not green.

As for black/gunmetal rims...I like them...but only on some color cars...like Red or Silver. On a black car I just dont like the look..especially while its moving. It looks like it has really dirty rims or some black steelies.

Yeah I think bronze rims looks good on black as well. I have bronze Rota Circuit 8's on my black Civic.

If you find those 16X7 Subzeros in silver or gunmetal, LET ME KNOW WHERE!!! I can find 15's and 17's, but doesn't seem that anyone has the 16's yet...

Those RPO1's ROCK. I put those in 16" size on my brothers LX and it looks tight.

I like SILVER, that's my .02 cents. Black only on SPOON type rims. But then again I'm buing the SPOON knockoffs in white to be different.

I think they look nice. Kind of an old school look. Somewhat lightweight too as I understand.
