Alloy choice help!

Hi guys

Im looking for some new aftermarket alloys in 19" for my deep bronze CTR.

Its very difficult to choose, because its bronze and not black.

I have found this, what do you think? Or maybe you could give me some inspiration, thx.

That's a nice looking alloy. In fact, it's almost identical to some that I was considering before I finally opted for the Rages.

Maybe someone could "photoshop" this wheel onto your car for you???

They are Smart....Alloys are a very personal choice, with so many variants these days, the choice can be endless. I assume your not bothered about having the Honda logo on the centre cap?

It really dosent matter about the logo for me, just going for some different than all others people buy. And dont want to pay twice as much just to get the "H" logo on the center.

I agree totally. I m all in for the bronze matt look. Those alloys will look awesome on any R. I like the whites on the CW but I d rather have a set of bronzes with the chrome outerlip. Mine ll just have to wait... Performance before style

Have you tried some of the alloy selectors on teh web, topgear.co.uk put a pic of a car up or you can upload your own and then fit different wheels to it.

Always a tough decision picking alloys unless you got a CW CTR - then its whites 18's everytime

If I were to choose alloys, I'd be looking for something more elegant and subtle. I don't like dark alloys on dark cars cause there's no contrast

Okay, feel free to share some pics of elegant and subtle alloys you would like on a CTR, for some inspiration

Try this

Welcome to Topgear's alloy wheel selector tool

or worse case this and select it yourself

Topgear's Alloy Wheel Selector Tool

They have a CTR, but not in Bronze, but don't be offended they didn't have a white one either

AEZ Excite - the triangular shape would be adequate
