How much are these rims worth with tires?

I know they bolt up but do they rub when lowered with h&r oe sport springs?

How much do they weigh?

Also do you think they look good on the accord coupe?

thanks
ps I am talking about the 20-02 rims not the new mesh spoke ones on the 6 speed

I don't think they would rub. I really like the way the CL-S rims look, too! I would think you could probably get a set for like $500-600, but I wouldn't pay more than $800 for them if I were you, or else I'd just get something aftermarket.

cl-s rims are 17x7 with a 55 offset, on 215/50 tires. a couple of v6ers have already put these on their rides with no problems. if anything, these wheels and tires are just slightly wider (same offset) than stock.

i recently got a hold of a set of cl-s rims that were almost brand new for 5 bills...yep, those suckers are heavy as hell, and the offset makes the rims almost sit flush with your fender. So the rims look pretty good. Of course its not volks or anything..but i rather get these than some shitty aftermarket copies like konigs or what not. So far i haven't gotten any negative comments..people love em. If u wanna see pics gotta ask accrdv6cpe for em or frank828, cuz i dont have a digicam..but they took pics of my ride.

So with these heavier 50lbs wheels, how does it affect the car's performance? Assuming the change is from the 35lbs V6 wheels to the Type-S ones.

I'm thinking of getting them too, but I worry that the car will turn sluggish.

thnx.

Well you're adding 60lbs of weight onto the car, so of course that'll slow you car.

Do you have these wheels as well?

Like how sluggish? Would I feel a VERY noticable difference?
Just a little more details please. In particular, anyone regret they got these?

in terms of acceleration, yeah, they are sluggish, but then again, most rims u put on will slow your car down cuz they're too heavy, unless u go w/ volks, advans, some racing harts, or certain rotas..etc....

only way, u gonna find an increase in acceleration is find lighter rims than your stock....which will be rare and expensive

by the way, cl-s rims are wider 17x7, and come with pretty decent tires (if u can find them), so u do have better cornering...
as for my cl-s i like em alot..hopefully frank828 or accrdv6cpe will send me pics of my own car soon.

Glad everything turned out okay. I really, really, really wanted to go with you guys, but I fell asleep so Jerry left w/o me. *sniffles*... he was at my house, and when you called I was like "I wanna go too!" but I was like falling asleep already. Jerry said he'd wake me up if he goes, but he didn't. :( :mad: Haha, now you guys owe me a dinner. :D :p

I asked Jerry and he said he'll have your pics up on ACO tonight okay? So stop whining! :p
