I had those on my Civic, but in silver. Yeah I think those would look pretty sharp in anthracite. Got them at Whalentire.com. Excellent company to do business with. When I bought mine, they had them in the anthracite. I just checked their site and I don't see them in the E's size. But they do have the Enkei OR52 which is pretty much the same thing as the Ricochet. They are $128 each. But they only have less then four so you'd have to wait til they get more in. I would actually rather get the Enkei cuz they seem to have a better reputation. Here's the link. http://www.whalentire.com/wheelsvehicle.cfm?boltpattern=51143&diameter=17&smallwidth=5.0&largewidth=14.0&Submit=GO

Good luck!!

yeah i saw the enkei ones....i thought about it but i like the rsl's better...there's really not a whole lot of difference...just a little different shape in the triangle cut outs....i'm probably gonna get them from www.gotwheelsandtires.com

I know what you mean about the triangles. The ricochets are more rounded, which I like, where the enkeis are more choppy.
