Planning to buy after market rims for CR-Z, so many to choose from
I like to see some other member's wheels ....
The OEM wheels are kind of boring
I seen Spoon rims on the CR-Z before but they are very expensive
anyone upgraded to different size of wheels so far, please post your pictures.
thanks

Keep in mind if you buy bigger or heavier wheels you will be reducing fuel efficiency and power.

also tirerack.com has the CR-Z on it so you can see those wheels and I'm sure someone would be willing to do a shop of any wheels that are not on there.

I'm most likely staying with a 16" wheel. Here's my first choice: 2011 Honda CR-Z EX

If I end up going with a 17" wheel I'll either go with OZ Superturismo GT in black or OZ Alleggerita HLT in gold.

I have a Crystal Black Z.
OZ Superturismo GT in black:
2011 Honda CR-Z EX

OZ Alleggerita HLT in gold:
2011 Honda CR-Z EX

I may do these in black (Alleggerita HLT)

I'm leaning more towards the 16" Sparco wheels, though. Wrapped in Dunlop Star Specs.

17x7 MB Weapons... with Conti Extreme Contact DSW 225/45ZR17 tires

After seeing the photo of the MB Weapons and not liking how bright the standard wheels look with the white car, I went to my local Discount Tire store. On the floor there was an all black chrome wheel. The MB Phanthom Black Chrome is a new color of the Seven X model. They were $145 per wheel. The out the door price with sales tax, installation and installation kit was $755. I checked price from Discount Tire Direct because they offered $50 off, free shipping and no sales tax. It would cost $5 more per tire for installation. The local salesmanl said he would match the price and discounted price $120. The out the door price was $652. The wheels are 16x7 and when these tire wear out, I plan getting Conti DWS 225 X 50. I am very pleased the way they look on the car. They are very shinny.

Sound nice! The Weapons I have are actually rebadged A-Techs from Japan (clearly marked as A-Tech).... do your Seven-X's show any like that?

I didn't notice. Were would badging appear. The caps and boxes say MB.

The model number is 16X7 5-100/11440PBC if you want to look them up.

I now need sale the other wheels with 770 miles on them. Any suggestions?

The A-Tech is molded into the wheel between the spokes on mine.... pretty clear....

I have tested some wheels to see how aggressive the CRZ can go and here's one ;)



Volk CE28N 17*8.5 +47 with 235 tires *no rubbing*

alanchan, if you want something cheap, you might wanna look into Enkei or TenzoR.
