Eiken Bortex wheels

What do you all think on installing these sets on my coupe

17'' X 8
Offset 35
I am going to install ksport coilover to reduce the gap and improve performance. I know the wheels are a lot lighter than stock but I am not sure if 17s are too small. Tell me what you think

Awful. Too small. Ugly.

Do you mean Enkei Bortex? I don't mind the older styling, but IMO stay stock and save your money if you are just staying with 17s.

If you are lowering your car go ahead and get a bigger wheel, once you lower the car even 18's will look small.

If you don't like those in 19s, I guess you do not like the Raijin either?

Don't get me wrong I like the wheels. I was debating if 17 would look too small

gotcha, I also think that buying 17s is a waste of potential. Go with 19s if you don't want to drop the car and still want comfort. That is what I will get.

I guess there are no old school folks here. But do find photos of them mounted. I think they look better before they have a tire on them. But go for 19" wheel upgrade minimum.

Now, the question for you guys is will you still install the 17s if they were free including the tires?

That's a very generic question. What kind of wheels? What kind of tires.

Could be very shitty quality wheels and very shitty quality Chinese made tires.

Do these wheels look like this?



Most likely not.

I would only get 17's if I had an Accord Hybrid.
