Nice Rims Kaminsk. What brand, and how much did you pay, if you don't mind me asking?

I think it would look a whole lot better if it were lowered. But the rims are nice!

The rims looks good. I would recommend the sidesteps. I hear they come in black now... The steps give the E a lowered look to it. I would also recommend the hood deflector from avs and the honda window visors.

They come in black now? From Honda? Is this something new for 2005?

Definitely should be lowered via Ebac or Tien springs.

the rims look good but you've gotta do something about that wheel gap now.

Here's my E with some 17" Acura TL rims with 235/60/R17 Bridgestone Duelers.
They fill up the wheelwell pretty good because they are the same outside diameter as the factory 215/70/R16s.
Also, the center hub is Honda standard, and the factory center caps fit!

Those wheels were a thought for me. I work for acura, so I get a good price. But I'm thinking 18's.

Nice rims my man. Definitely should drop it or runnin boards. Peace Out.

I thought about dropping it, but I like the extra ground and fender clearance. The Element still has so much less fender gap around the wheels than most SUVs. Check out any Dodge product sometime. It's like you could use the fender areas for storage space above the tires! Running boards are a good option, but too darn expensive.

Here's a pic of a 2WD stock height Dodge Ram (for example):

Nice wheels... Something about dropping the E just ain't right. But if you do I recommend the Eibach Springs. You will get a 1.5 to 2inch drop . Be aware that the rear of the E will look higher than the front. This is why I wouldn't bother. maybe if they made some adjustable ones I might make the move. But for now.. NOT.... I almost forgot, you will also have adjust the camber on the rear wheels.

I found that 18.5 wheels with a 40offset and 245/55/18 tires fill the well and make the look good.
