I'm a sucker for race style wheels - simple 5 or 6 spoke - not chrome, not swirly patterns, not spiderweb or 10-12 bike spokes (like golfR32). I liked the stock 5 spoke 16" rims...Something that says lightweight, nimble, strong.avoid white or chrome if you're car is black, but silver/brushed aluminum or gun metal grey is nice on black. Maybe gold.

17" is perfect for that car, but please lower it at the same time. Large wheels with wheel gap look tacky.I love the black on black look, it looks menacing. Next build the engine to back up the mean looks I run 18's on my 3rd gen RX-7 but that's because I needed the increased tire selection. You won't need 10" wide wheels and 305 rubber like I do though

IT'S STUPID, IT'S GHETTO, IT'S GANG BANGER STYLE.

No its not tacky, just pick the right design for you. There is a reason it's called "customization". Dont worry what other people think, there will always be critics.

17's are just fine. but you have to make sure you do everything the "right" way. you need to make sure you get some lowering springs, or (my personal favorite) coil over kit to get rid of the wheel gap you will get by putting on bigger rims. You will also need camber kits and align them with the new rims on your car. this will prevent your tires from wearing unevenly and help your tire life last a lot longer. I used to have a 2002 rsx type s and had 17's on mine. This is the only way to go, unless you want to spend a lot of money on tires.

i think 17" gonna be a just right size for you! it's gonna handle better then stock 16" you got. when you buy new rims, make sure check offset and bolt pattern. Acura has deeper offset then most other cars. so even its said 17" but its might not fit in yours. i got 2005 Acura TL and I got 18"X8, 5/114.3 with 42 offset.For your 2004 Acura RSXSize: 17X7 or 17X7.5Bolt Pattern: 5/114.3Offset: 40
