I’m getting ready to buy my accord within the next couple of weeks and I am really torn between the black and stock rims. I don’t love the stock rims, but not sure if the black tires are worth another 2k and wanted to get some opinions. Anyone have feedback for me?

First of all, welcome to the forum. And unless you love the upgraded wheels, for that kind of money you might as well look at some aftermarket options. You could also plasti dip the stock rims in the interim until you find something to your liking.

Thanks, Scotty! Glad to be here. I do like the upgraded wheels, but I don't know if they are worth the extra 2K. And I don't think I can get the Sport tires on the touring model?

If you're just after the black look and fine with the stock design, there are options to just paint them cheaply with those can spray paints or plasti dip. Then you can save that money and buy a nice set of sport tires if necessary. This is what I'd do cause I'm cheap. :D

Plasti Dip will be the easiest and cheapest method. Lots of youtube videos out there on how to go about it. Just make sure you finish it with a clear coat.

I've heard that adding the clear coat can make the removal process a lot more difficult, which I guess could be good or bad depending on what you're looking for. Have you looked any aftermarket options, because I would imagine that you could find a pretty nice set for less than $2k.

Depends on if you are getting a sport model or not. I'd say if you want the black rims, go with another car color like silver, black or gray...they obviously will make the car look very sporty. If you are for sure going with white, I would do the stock rims (black and silver). Hope this helps!

Sorry to say but a black wheel is called the spare. So if you like the look of riding on 4 spares then go ahead. Sorry JMHO
