Talking 1992 accord ex-r

Hey all, thought I'd post up a few quick pics of my new car that my parents got me! Its a 1992 Honda Accord ex-r (stock) and sadly automatic but I still love it Any ideas on some appearance changes I could make that wouldn't break my bank considering this is my first car and I am teen.

Plans:
Paint Black with black aftermarket rims
or
same color, black rims.
possibly getting it lowered
things to consider:a few minor rust spots, trying to stay under a $2000 budget.





Thanks for any input, sorry for lack of pictures. I'll upload some of the inside and such soon!

crazymikey is very helpful crazymikey is very helpful
Rims and lower it. Good enough. That will break your $2000 budget right there.

Welcome to the forum, remember to read the rules!

Paint looks good, fix the rust before she spreads.
This is an EX-R, so I'm assuming your from Canada.
Where abouts are you?

Looks like mine.

Think about spending less on the rims and more on lowering the car.

Been reconsidering the modifications I want to the car and with winter coming up as well I've been thinking about sticking with these Pirelli tires. The only problem with that is the fact I'm not sure what black rims will look like on them. These are the current rims I'm looking into buying: http://www.carid.com/vision-wheels/a...k-1239906.html My original plan was to buy some 18" rims+low profile tires as a package; however hoping I can save some money by only buying the 16" rims and still be able to drive in the snow with the tires I already have. Anyone have experience/like the appearance of 16" rims? is it worth buying?

Here are some more pictures









Rust on rear right side wheel

Edit: sorry if I posted this in the wrong section

Are you saying your not sure how black wheels will look on black tires?

I think you should go with some less flashy wheels. It won't match anything and I think will look donk on 18s since you dont have money to work on suspension. 16 still might look funny, but I think those wheels look funny on their own.

Dark wheels/dark grey look really good with Seattle silver.

Try to look for a used set of rim with tires on it. Imo 18's are a little big for cb7, i prefer with 17's... Anyway, with a 2k budget, i would go with some used wheels, just take your time to see whats selling in your area. Also a used drop will run you about 400$ depends on the deals you get. With the money left i would fix the rust with same color of paint to repair the quarters...

I've been there too and its the best way to go, when you grow and get more $$ you upgrade parts.

I think I've found myself a deal hard not to take, been looking around and spotted a set of (used) 17" rims with Falken Ziex low profile tires for $300. Either he wants these gone or something is wrong? Seems like a very good price

Klasse motor sport 17" rims with 215 40 ZR17 with Falken Ziex low profile tiresoff of a 1992 integra. The tires was over $1400 new the guy says...
Im pretty sure these will fit a 1992 honda accord, but im not that great about wheels.
