XXR 530 Gold

Since its time to replace rubber, I thought I'd get some wheels also. I was looking at these before, but thought that I couldn't get the concave look. Found out that I could order these in 17 x 8.25 w/ +35 offset (as long as E wasn't lowered). Seen similar model (XXR 527?) on another forum, same size, looked good. Hope mine has the same concave. Not sure of tire size, either 225 x 60 or 235 x 55, both have "same" load ratings. I was wondering if the 225's would give me a "mini" stretch look. Will take pictures when installed.

Wheels arrived today, man was shipping fast. Not as gold as I had thought, but looks good. Waiting for lugs and wheel lock. In the mean time, getting quotes for install.

Not a fan of the xxr logo. I vote for Honda stickers over top of the xxr logo at least :)

Here it is.

Finally got them installed. Tires are Toyo Versado LXII (235/55R17). Wanted CUV's but he didn't have them in stock, so didn't want to wait one month. No particular reason for Toyo's.
