Nah, I'm good. Thanks for the offer anyways.

I'd rather wait and get 17"s, I don't want to stay at 15"s , too much tire. lolz

Love that Calypso Red and the Boston Green! All of them look nice, but those two stand out.

Had a set, I wanted bigger wheels more than I want 32s which is why I got the 44s, they're probably my second choice behind 17" 32s so I'm happy till I can find them.

There's much more luxury in a new accord than an E36.

Don't get me wrong... I like almost nothing about the new Accord. It's just that almost any new car will beat an E36 in terms of luxury... And rightfully so. It's 20 years newer.
