Default Alloys for a white Civic

I know there are many threads, but I was unable to get the required info.

I'm looking for WHITE alloys.

Just as an example, something like this....

http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/tyre-a...nso-blitz.html (My Civic with 17 inch White Lenso Blitz)

This is one of the best looking Civics I've seen. EVER.

I want something like this.

Enkei used to make white racing alloys which look fantastic. Would love to have something like that.

I'm even open to OZ but getting them in India is a pain. Actually getting even Enkei here is a pain.

I'm trying with a few contacts, but I would love to have more. Tomorrow will see me contacting a few more people across India.

Lenso is an option, but frankly, I want Enkeis or OZ this time.

Konigs could work as well if they have white wheels!

I'm looking for mainly 15". Dont want to ruin the ride quality. 17" can wait for when I own a car and throw ride quality to the wind!

I've looked at both those threads. Thanks anyway

However, I'm kinda keen on Enkeis. Dont ask why!

What about the Civic Sports that was being sold earlier. Did Honda just paint the standard alloys white?

It was the alloys that are now coming on the V Variant, painted in pure White.

How about this Apollo Acelere alloy.
SH-38, comes in 15"

EDIT: These may not work as it's 4 hole. Civic is 5 hole, 100 pcd - right?

Once you get the exact design you are looking for,getting a white one at that particular design is not a big deal brother.
Btw i also liked the alloys posted on above pic of honda civic with white alloys.Real nice ones!!

On white civic, something of 8-9 spokes that bulge outside would look good..

@Nikhil: I'm no expert here Bro, but from their website its looks like Enkei has no alloy wheel models in White. Hope this disappoint you.

Enkei Wheels : 2009 Race & Tuning Series

Found a couple in OZ-Racing's, if you can get them in India.

Slightly OT:
What make are the OE Civic alloys?
How much resale value can one expect for the 4 wheels, if changed immediately after taking delivery of the car?
