Default Your opinion on the best choice of wheels for my '02 Acura RSX?

Hi everyone. I have a '02 Acura RSX -- it's white, tinted windows, and for the most part, all stock. I am really not into 'tricking' out my vehicle, but I do plan on getting some nice 17" wheels [rims] for my RSX. With that said, I am asking for some opinions on the best wheels I should go with. My choices are: Gun Metal, Black, Gold/Bronze, or larger stock. I am not into chrome wheels, unless on large SUVs, so those are ruled out. Below are some links to some pictures that give a better idea of the choices. Thank youuu!Gunmetal:http://www.nsxfiles.com/images4/fame...=116991513117" stock:http://www.myride.com/images/vehicle..._(400x300).jpg

Black looks AWESOME! Gunmetal is also a cool choice but black is the top winner for me.

Gunmetal is best with a white car. If you put black wheels on a white car, then you cannot see the wheels. Gold/Bronze is not that bad, but it would go better with a blue car like the Subaru Impreza WRX STI.

thats good that your not into Chrome cause its just stupid flashy, but I would have to say a nice spoon racing set, gun metal all the way, if you get just flat black it just wont work with the white, right after the wheels nothing else though, start on the engine now.

Well my choices are either black, bronze/gunmetal. They all look great in my opinion, but gunmetal takes the win. 17" are nice, so just make sure you get a lower profile tire.

gunmetal will go well with a car that is white. The gunmetal rims also look like ssr rims which are a great, light track rim. They are not oversized, but properly sized which will give you the best handling charistics. Too short of a sidewall will skip and not conform to the pavement, too large of a sidewall will fall in on it's self. So a 17 inch with a 45 or 50 series rating will work best if you plan on going to the track.
