After searching for rims for my wierd bolt pattern I found ones I like. http://www.machiii.net/wheels/Rota_Slipstream.html
15" 6.5" wide 40 offset. Would this fit my 1995 accent without much of a problem? Will the rim hangout of the fender at all? The rim is 12 pounds and a normal 195/50-15 is like 17 pounds? So the rim and tire will come out to 29 pounds wich is one pound lighter then my stock 13" steel rims lol. Does anyone have slipstreams on there accent, and if you do could you post a pic please thanx.

Slipstreams are great wheels. They will fit well and clear your captive rotors. Get them, you'll be happy.

Wow they are not as small as I thought they would look on the accent. They look nice, only I would have silver ones, or possibly white ones on a white accent. I don't know yet.

Jonas car does look like its lowered though. Is that what we should do to get the 15's to look like a perfect fit?

Well I was going to lower the car anyways. 15's on a lowered accent is a perfect match.

Yeah there are chrome caps. I didnt put them in cause I didnt have the wheels on for very long. I just put them on to take pics after I lowerd my car. But I will be putting them in once spring comes back.

So the caps came with the rims. So all caps are chrome or do you get to pick the color of the caps?

I dont think there was a choice on the caps. I dont know what Rota uses for center caps but thats what Nippon uses.

The handling is great. I still might look into getting a rear strut bar but for now im happy with it.

That is awesome I will get some. Since it is the same weight rota rim and tire as the stock 13" steel rim with tire did you notice the car being slower or faster?
