wow those wheels look massive, don't even need to lower it LOl. You officially have an Acura ILX Donk.
tints would be cool, but if you do it, get the chrome trim around the window painted black.

Just got it tinted today - 43 in the front with a 7 inch top line and 22 in the back. Pics coming soon.
that actually sounds like a really nice tint, something thats not too dark at all for the front, not dark to the point it's a PITA to reverse park or anything at night, looking forward to pictures. how much did it cost you?

SUNTEK CXP....

I got lifetime warranty for $160 (SLC UTAH)... warranty covers fading, bubbling, purpling, pretty much every thing. Brand was Suntek.

Honestly it rides so smooth on the dubs. I bought them because someone slashed my tires and defaced my rims so the stock OEM rims were $1700 with tires and these were $1250 with tires!! :)

Only complaint is the tires were cheap and they are susceptible to pot hole damage and easy flats... but it hasn't happened yet. If I lowered it at all I think I would be scraping all over the place.

Yeah i agree, even though the 20" did fill some of the gap up it would be cleaner with a slight drop.

Looks good though what other plans do you have in mind?

No offense.. but am I the only that thinks the rims are god awful fugly on the car?

Love the Crimson Garnet color!
I don't like them too, but as long as the OP likes it, that's what matters. Not everyone will like the same thing.
What aftermarket wheel would you go with? and what sizing?

these new directional wheels from Vossen should look sweet on the ILX in 19, maybe 20. I think it's design will complement the ILX and just about any new Acura

I totally disagree... I love my school's colors (crimson black and white) go Utes... ;)

literally every person who sees the car comments on how sick they look:

Now that I've got it tinted and I'm dipping the chrome, I will post up new pictures.
Disagree with what?

Crimson and white would look sick. Should have got some white wheels... in 18 or 19. Not 20.
Another owner blacking out the chrome makin my love my car more.

Keep doing your thing.

I'm not usually a fan of too big of a rim on a smaller car to fill the wheel gap, for the size of the ILX a +1 is more than enough I think with a drop, 18's look great on a car this size with a drop to fill up the wheel gap.
