Heh. I like this guy. No no no, don't just buy any cheap generic rim you see in ads. First of all, I have a 4cyl car, I need a lightweight wheel/tire combo. Also, I don't want the clear coat on the rims to chip, I want something that's sturdy and built right. You can get some Enkei rims or some Konig rims for fairly inexpensive. I plan on paying no more than 800 bucks for a 16 inch set of Enkei RSF5s with Kumho Ecsta ASX rubber at discounttiredirect.com They will mount and balance your tires on your wheels and ship them to your door ready to be slapped on. The reason I picked 16" rims was because the larger diameter wheel you have, the more rotating mass, not just the weight. That, and it's cheaper, 17s may run 950 or more and that's a stretch.

Hope I helped, Peace

P.S., just do your research!

Michelin pilot sports are some very sticky tires but very expensive. The michelins on the accord are prob the mxv4's and aren't really performance tires.
