Default 18 inch chrome rims look dumb on an 04 Acura TL?

Not asking if you like or dislike chrome at all... But size wise do you think it will look dumb. Sorry I'm into that whole urban type look (sort of)... I know a lot of folks on here it won't fit their taste. But still try and give me your take on if it will look bad or not.

First, let me say something.

Self, please don't be insulting, please don't be insulting, please don't be insulting...

Ok, that's out of the way.

I personally don't like Chrome, wouldn't put it on any car I own, but that's personal preference. It could be worse than 18" Chrome wheels I guess. What I would do though, is instead of Chrome, go with a polished Aluminum wheel. it will not have the maintenance issues that chrome does and it's still shiny, plus to the people who see your car you won't look like "Oh, another one of THOSE cars". Aside from that, I think 18" is about the biggest I would go, and as for if it would look awful or tolerable would probably come down to the color of the car. I would probably only use even a polished wheel for a silver car, the rest would get something darker. But ultimately, it's what do YOU like, after all, you're the one who has to drive it.

OEM looks great on those cars..or possibly the newer style split-spoke OEM for an upgrade..or the gray type s wheels...check it out acura has plenty of factory options available (ASPEC) which are very attractive and will have the proper hubcentric design and offset so you dont ruin your wheel bearings
