All the Konig wheels look great! I like the first deep dish one but it may look small on your Accord, Akshay. Especially if 17" is what you want! It would look great only in 19" and that isn't right!

The rest of them are great! Try and get vid6639's second picture. The V-spokes look great and very BBS-ish! However, I'd pass them if they aren't available in some other colour and if that red lip cannot be removed as an option! The 3rd and 4th ones are pretty nice too!

P.S. I don't like either red or blue piping on any wheel!

EDIT: I'd taken a few pictures of this nice Accord in Singapore and it had some real nifty wheels! Get something like this if you can!

No 17" is perfectly alright for deep dish. I saw Rudra's car with 15" deep dish alloys and they looked perfect. The car's stance completely changed just by going deep dish. Gives it a gangsta look.

Black on black car I'm not too keen. That's why I was suggesting first one.

It should be hyper silver no chrome or dark silver. Don't got for white alloys they stand out too much.

really? but with the roads in bombay i think even if i go into a pothole at a higher speed by mistake the lip will bend in a deep dish rim. otherwise no issues with it. now ill forget all these brands like prestige and 69 and blah blah. ill go tomorrow and finalise between konig and lenso. i like the lenso sc05.

i think these 2 would also look nice. now after thinking a bit my opinion is that white will look pretty cool on the car.

The 1st pic of the Lenso wheel is fantastic! It looks amazing! But I must add that somehow, it wouldn't suit the Accord. They look too 'busy' if you ask me! Plus, white would stand out too much! If you can get one in brushed chrome or just silver, it would look great!

I agree. They should look really nice on the Accord.

P.S.- Great buy!

It's disappointing that the head-unit doesn't support MP3! Are you going to do something about it? I'm sure you can get an Aux-port retro fitted right?

Yeah suhaas I am planning on getting a processor. It will have an aux input so that will be sorted.

F.E Update - today i took the car to powai and back and the car did almost 80kms for the trip. it was driven with a reasonably light foot and only floored once on the sealink (too tempting). the car consumed about 8 or 9 litres of fuel which means it gave me about 9kmpl. wow. just back up my earlier statement that this car is not meant for city traffic, only open roads. this is just my estimate btw, lets see what difference the service has made on the mileage overall. will update with the fe when i refill the tank.

PS - my new challenge for this car has become the max mileage i can extract from it. this is something i never though would happen to me but its a fun challenge, not that i drive at 40kmph in the leftmost lane. i try to increase mileage by using the accelerator smoothly and braking earlier if i see an obstruction ahead or by trying to use less throttle all the time. of course this is all forgotten if i am first in line at a signal and there is an open road ahead.
