have no clue on what kind of rims to get for my civic...it's a 2000 Si...it's black, and it's stock, just bought a little wing for it the other day and i'm thinking of getting rims for it..i was peeping these on ebay yesterday a friend of mine wants to give me some rims (post the pic when i get home from work) but i am undecided on which would look best.....the ebay ones are kinda cheap, i'm looking to drop about $2,500 - $5,000 on a set just need some advice on which are best to get and what style would look good i am going for something more sleek not too over the top. thanks :)

well do you want big rims or do you want lighter rims that won't slow you down & make handling worse due to increased rotational mass/unsprung weight?

bronze looks great on black to me.. what about black rims, with or without a chrome lip? maybe even gunmetal..

IMO 15-17's look good on your year Civic. 18 IMHO is getting into that "super deformed" look that I'm not too happy about.:p

What stlye rims are you into? 5 spokes thin or wide, 6-10 spokes, mesh, etc. etc. U got a lot of room to play with, considering the amount of money you're planning on spending.

don't like the gun metal, black or white rims....

i was thinking 16's - 17's

I don't really care for the weight not using it for racing performace....just want it to look classy. I was looking for something unusual (design on rim) but there's really nothing out there for a civic that i've seen. Plus there aren't many stores specializing in that kinda stuff in the city i am in. I really liked the look of the ones on the link in my first post.
