Well if you're going for a lip type Rim then go in for a staggered setup.Doesn't matter if its a FWD.staggered will look amazing.

Tried Sai Mag Wheels, Moti Nagar ?

Heard he is dealing in Maglines also these days. ( Not sure though)


p.S. What's a staggered setup?

Abhinav staggered wheels are those in which the rear wheel offset is less than the front wheel offset.In simpler terms the lip width in the rear wheels is more than in the front ones.

Accord Masters call up blueraven(Satya from EVO banglore).Last time i had a chat with him he had some very good designs in staggered wheels in 18" as well as 17".

Not always; its very complex than that. Stags are usually used when you need more width at the back. You need to calculate exact shift of CL of the alloy for stability at high speed. I dont recommend choosing stags from who dont have proper knowledge of dynamics,Also you cant rotate tires. We can custom order stags on your choice if its in your budget. Why do complex things for simple solutions.

Congrats on the monster sedan. A full review would be great.

Although with a budget of 1L, you can have good rims, but these are some designs which I liked in Prestige (18" on the assumption that you want low profiles taking into account the pics posted).

I think the frist 3 are too in the face for a car like the accord. The fourth one just about makes the cut. You need to go in for classier stuff. Understated & classy.

Personally I even found Konig designs shown here too in the face. Maybe it's just me !!

Please go for the change after adequate research !!




Cheers

Rightly said, this was something I liked among the limited I could find on net... Something different is what makes sense.

C'mon he's not gonna go in for "Prestige" rims! That car's worth almost 30L! Prestige rims would drop the prestige of the car!

Please AM I'm sure you already know this, but please stay away from all the Lensos, Leagues, and Platis.

At the minimum look for Enkeis. If you need any help procuring them, shoot me a PM I can help you get the rims you want in 18" for a good price.

Enkei is a good japanese budget conscious choice, and their rims both look and perform great!

I am not promoting any product for personal gain, I do not deal in automobiles or their accessories!

PS:
Can I get your stock 17"s [Blowing so much cash on my ride already, no more budget for rims :(]

And how does this help? I mean improvement in performance or just for the looks?

In FWD cars it's just for the look (stag alloys look great!)
In RWD cars it serves a real purpose, the larger rim in the rear allows a car to sport really wide tyres, thereby helping it's grip and handling.

Its just for the looks in case of FWD.serves no other purpose.I have seen it on a civic once posted by Blueraven and it looked damn good.
