I am thinking about putting new wheels on my Red 2005 NSX.

I am going with 18" and 19" tires.

Let me know which wheel you think would look best!

Please click on each photo so they are enlarged. It is difficult to get a good look at either wheel without enlarging the photo!

Your comments would be greatly appreciated as well! Do you like either wheel for my NSX?

Thanks!

sorry but not feeling about your two wheel choices either. they look too "old- style" for my taste. if i have to pick one, the left will be it.

the HRE 5-spoke shallow concave wheel couple thread below looks sweet.
 
Isn't the wheel on the right similar to the ones that came with your (Yojack's) car? I think they look good, but if you want to change, I prefer the one on the left.

Yes they are close but not the same.
 
+1. wheels looking too old school/earlier generation wheels. they would look great in the volk av3, racing hart c2/m5 fast and furious era of late 90s early 2000s.

if i had to choose, left wheel setup but like others i feel its not nsx calibre. imho of course.

Here's the TSW Nurburgring on the NSX.
It's very lightweight and pretty inexpensive. However because they don't offer a concave rear face, I think the wheel looks a little funny on the NSX IMHO.

Thanks a million for the photos! Just wondering as I am not a wheel guy, what do you mean by "concave rear face?" Thanks!

I think your choice is easy. You should go with the TSW Vortex (wheel on the right). Another member has this set up on his red car and WOW! I think this in the silver finish is perfect for the NSX. I would put this combo in the top five wheel choices. For a red NSX, I would put this in the top three. They are not the lightest wheels, but also they are not too bad. Please see this picture:

The concave face is usually more 3 dimensional in that the center part is sunken in (caves inward) and the spokes kind of come out toward the edge.

Here's a more extreme example of my old XXR 522s. Front wheel is sort of flatter looking and the rear wheel is more 3 dimensional.

Jacob...you are not going to beleive this but that is my car! I am thinking of selling these wheels and going with the others. I really appreciate you comments!

I love this forum! It is so great to reach out to my friends to learn from their experiences and comments!

Anyone else have suggestions???

I suggest to wait for 2002+ replicas in 17/18 combo.

When it comes to NSXs, nothing looks more elegant than oem 02+ wheels.
 
Very nice indeed!
 
Hi,

Not liking either for an NSX ... the left would suit a Civic, the right screams Prelude.

You dont mention the colour of your NSX. I ask as I think this is a key consideration when moving away from OEM 02 rims. It impacts on style as well as color of rim. The red of tbnsxt above looks great, and you should should check out Synth19's NIOP.

If you like a clean rim then check out Brylek's stunning Silverstone http://www.nsxprime.com/forum/showpost.php?p=1415487&postcount=26

Good luck and HTH

regards, Paul
 
Those are some gorgeous wheels! I PM'd Brylek to get info on them. Thanks for the lead!

BTW...my NSX is red.
 
If you want to stick with the TSW, I like my interlargos a lot. It's one of the cheapest rotating forged wheels. (similar to Enkei's MAT) bascially a spun cast wheel that's slightly lighter yet stronger than traditional casting.

I think you meant "slightly lighter and stronger than traditional casting".

I really like those on your car.
Are they 17x7.5 +45, 18x9.5 +40? I've been going back and forth between these and the Nurburgrings for track wheels.
 
Here's mine with TSW Nurburgrings. Mine stick out about 15mm more than the black car above.

mine is 17*8 with 35et. (i have to check, it maybe a 30et) those were specifically ordered and test fitted for my stoptech.

I also had a set of DF front fenders.. again, just to fit the stoptech with my track tire setup. 235/40.

just to give you an idea, i ran 215 with 17*7.5 with 40et. but also ran a 15mm spacer.
 
Choose what makes you happy, not what necessarily makes the community happy. But since you asked, I voted for the one on the right. And clearly I am in the minority based on the results. :redface::biggrin:
