Default Looking For Some Nice Looking 18" Wheels

I live in La (not California LOL) so our roads can be rough. This is my wifes daily driver and she likes the looks of a black 5-6 spoke with a polished lip. We would also like to push the rim out a little, not flush with the fender but closer than stock. Also trying to get her to let me lower it about 1"-1.25"

Car is a 06 Black Onxy SE

Thanks for your time

If you're getting 18's try to avoid lips as much as possible, it will make your car look like your riding on 17's, considering our cars aren't the smallest things in the world as well, if you're going to go with the 5-6 spokes you should check out varrstoens, they come with nice fitment so you won't need spacers, most of them don't have lips so they'll look awesome, just a piece of advice

I think with 18"s and lips it depends on the type of wheel you get. The ones I'm looking at getting have a lip but they don't look any smaller. Plus with the stock 07-08 SE wheels we have that giant backing behind the spokes so I guess it wouldn't make that big of a difference.

As far as what would look good you can always go to Wheelsnext and get a solid idea, maybe not necessarily buy from them because I've heard stories but use them to get a good idea of what you would like. Plus they have an awesome wheel visualizer.

Welcome to the family!!! I would definitely go online and use the wheel visualizer and then I would check some rim shops to see how they look on the Max in person. Hope you find something you like and be sure to post pix afterwards.

You bastard, I've never seen them on a Honda, I have seen them on a 350Z the day I bought them and just last weekend I saw them on a Ford Focus. Hold up, that's not helping my case is it?
