^^ you can get C5's w/o rubbing ;) :p go w/ what you like. if you still like the C5's, then get them....honestly, all we can do is recommend which tires WE think are better....it's still up to you. see what you like, an then if you're still havin a tough time deciding, then post them an let us help you :D

we could recommend a lot of wheels that would cost you less than 1700....but they may all look ugly or be crappy rims....start by finding somethin that you like

Man... I'm too late! I was gonna suggest some Advans!

:bow: Advan Connoisseur in 18s either in silver metallic or bronze! Very similiar to the RH Evo C5s except more expensive. $500 per rim for 18s. Perfect size and offset (50mm)!!! Oh wells... I was gonna get a set of these for my 03' Accord Coupe V6 but I already ordered a set of Advan Kreuzers in gun-metallic.

Wow, 215/40/18...won't those be too tall?

I thought you had to get 215/35s in order to fit with 18" wheels...You realize they're going to be .7" taller than stock, right?

buh_buh is running that tire size with the C5's and he has minimal rubbing and he only rubs because he is tucked on all 4 corners....me i wont be tucked at all...so it will work out and besides i need the extra protection with these PA roads over here

:confused: Huh?

Oh, you mean those Advans? Hehe, I didn't post that, Drew did... :stick: :D

...But I'm with you, NO WAY can I swing $500 per wheel for Advans! :laugh:

Hell, I'm still trying to afford the SSRs I got a month ago! :cool:

But to tell you the truth, I'm already thinking about selling my SSR Comps to get a set of Volk gunmetal GT-Cs, or maybe GT-7s... :bigthumb:

all you gotta do is save up a little more an you can get the rims that you want ;) :bigthumb: the GT-C's are nice....but the GT-7's would be more rare....not as many knockoffs available :D
