Go with the 18x7.5 inch, 5x100 model. I am not making any assumptions about the roads in Puerto Rico, but with 19s, your tires (or should I say rubber bands?
) would likely do little to prevent the rims from getting bent on a nasty bump; Axis wheels are very expensive, and the last thing you want is a bent rim!

This is merely a recommendation.

thanks edd your probably right, i have to make a choice of color now, black or silver, ive seen plenty with silver ones, but i have yet to see a blue tc with black rims, i have no idea if it will look good or ridiculous, what do you think?

i like the 19's but yeah... if your roads are rough then go with the 18's. i say go with silver if u have a blue tC.

I second that; I prefer silver wheels on blue/dark blue cars (dark enough and you might even get away with *gasp* chrome!), and black wheels on silver or white cars.

But remember, it's all about you and what you want; we're just trying to twist things in our favor, but in the end it's your ride.


Btw, my mom is from the D.R. and I go to Santo Domingo about every other year; just thinking about the roads in the countryside there makes me cringe at the thought of even 18s, but I've never been to Puerto Rico, so I'm guessing/hoping (for your sake) that the roads there are better, and at least as good as New York (which still sucks
).

well the roads here are about the same as in the states, but the thing is that it sometimes rains so HARD that land under the streets sometimes makes bumps or holes, and those holes are EVERYWHERE, if you lower your car here, your asking for a whooping, but i think i heard enough, i think ill go with 18's, i called yesterday and the dealer was out of silver 18's but had the silver 19's, so if the silver ones are in route, then ill go with 18 otherwise, i dont see any other choice, ill keep you guys posted

i bought the 19's silver, the kaminari kit basically needs it, otherwise it would touch ground hard everytime i go a speed bump or an inclined hill. thanks for the replies , you did help out a lot, ill post the new images as soon as i get the car from the shop

there is a blue rsx running around here with those rims in 18's. those rims look really good in silver on a blue car.

im thinking of just keeping the stock wheel, i don't see much of a difference for an 18 inch silver wheel, especially for over 1K
