Two questions:

Yes or No with the Civic Si 16" rims on the Element.

If yes, Stock Silver or Dark Argent?

Yes, it's all photochopped.

I kicked around that idea
than looked into the 17" accord wheels & 17 " tsx wheels

than ended up getting the Tl's that are 17X8 :)

looks sharp though

Either one looks pretty good.

The Dark Argent is unique since it is so close to the panel color.

Sorry, I'll have to go with no. I don't think any wheel with more then 6 spokes look good. But thats just me.

dark grey is doable, silver forget about it. i agree to many spokes for the Element.

I gotta go with the rest. I don't think it looks good. Looks like a wagon wheel.

Wow...tough audience. I think the silver looks better with the SOP. Dark Argent would look better with black or silver.

PS- welcome to Hartford.

I disagree. I wouldn't waste my money on aftermarket rims since I got an EX anyway (but that's my personal opinion... the stock alloy wheels are nice), but I don't think they look bad at all.

I also personally prefer the silver because the dark color just looks like you haven't washed them in a while...

Sorry to say that I agree with this. Chunky looks better on the Element.

Looks okay, by far not my first choice. However I have seen some poor taste in rims on this site.. IMO

In fact, haven't seen an aftermarket on an E that I like better than the stock 16's.

They look cool, I'd go with the silver, but I am a more traditional guy.

I second the many replies above... silver looks better than the dark ones. I hate it when people put black rims on their vehicle - they always look like they're running those space-saver rims from the trunk!

Very nice, cjmclean - go for it! :)

Thanks for all your comments. I know looks are subjective, but it's always good to hear why someone does or does not like something.

I'm leaning towards the stock silver. If I can find them for a good deal, I'll jump on it. I'm sure ebay will bring up a few.

Right now, I'm in the middle of buying a house, so the rims will have to wait a little while, but I should have them on by summer, unless something better comes along.

I would go with dark argent all the way!
