Thanks to many, I now have a car worthy of cruising with other Nsx's out there. My stock baby has grown up and has new Shoes. I feel like a proud Papa!
She has the 5Zigen FN01R-C Hyperblack 17/17.
17x8 - 43 offset front - 225/35/17 - no ecc. ring required.
17x9 - 43 offset rear - 255/40/17 - Pather hub rings HR72-6415(72.62/64.15mm).
Gorilla Chrome lug nut and lock system - 91733 - 12mmx 1.50 Bulge Acorn.
No TCS or rubbing issue.
No spacers.
Tyres are Falken FK451
I am really happy with the way they bring out the black roof of the car.
I wont be lowering the car because I drive it everywhere, everyday.
I wont be doing any brake work or painting anything.
For now that is!!! Actually to me the rotors look cool with the wheel colour, kind of like they are burnished. I did paint the little nsx on the caliper red, but don't tell anyone.

Looking really good. Hyperblack is great looking color. Almost like black chrome.

Do you have more pics of your nsx with new wheels?
 
looking extremely hot there. I like very much. Having offset +43 at the back do you require spacer? 17/17 will be my next set up for wheels and after deciding to get Prodrive wheels as Tsuciya's ones I am deciding on this one in the future. I've checked Michelin PS2 and size 16 tires are not available.
 
Thanks guys.
Got those Falken FK451.
Would be interested in any other brands or sizes that work well.
No spacers at all.
And I really like the wheels without the center caps.
I'll paint the center of the hubs black and see how that works out!

I have heard from many that the 5 spokes disappear when the car is rolling.
All you see is the outer rim, tyre and in the middle, the rotor.
I just saw the same thing in a new import car mag yesterday.
Will post picture shortly but the pic in the mag is real cool.

ffffanman,

I would like to run 17x7 in the front. What would be the best offset (no caliper rubbing)? Is +42 okay?

Nice.
Do you know what the drop is on Ed's car in the first picture ? Ie, which springs/coilovers hes using ?
 
Jin1976 - I won't know about that fitment unless I was to call someone for you or someone else on prime could chime in.
Here are some pics of my clearance.
Front is tight!
Back has room for a party to go on!

Eddie is lowered about 1 to 1.5 inches.
He bought used H&R springs from some dude on prime.
He is very happy with the setup.
His car is neat the way its low in the back.
Really fun to follow, looks low and wide.
He doesn't have the right wheel offset front to back but it makes it sweet.

Thanks ffffanman for the photos. I opted for 17x7 because my 16x7.5 has some scratches on the lips. My rim is wider than the tire I use ie. 205/45/16 BS G3. I am opting for Michelin because I like the thread pattern. They only have the 17 inches size as their smallest.
 
Looking good! Nice pictures! Have you noticed any difference in the handling? What are you going to use in the winter? :wink:

Despite what some folks think, I didn't mind the original wheels but your new wheels give the car a fresh look without too much bling.
