Default 2012 Wheel Change

Okay I might get a lot of heat for this comment but for some reason I do not like the new wheel change. Some of you may know that I am a EX BMW owner and in order for me to decide to buy this car in 2010 was that it did have a 5 point rim which is nice for Honda. The 2005 530i BMW I had was the same. Now with that all said, I really don't think the Crosstour looks good with custom rims or the new wheels they are putting on them now. Does anyone agree with me? This is a unique car and the stock rims that came with the car makes the car. I seen a CT in person with the wheel change and I did not like it at all. Any changes makes the car not exciting. That's just me I would not never change the 2010 rims they are nice. Makes it compete with the BMW's. What's your thought. I haven't been on for awhile. No issues with my CT.. Happy Thanksgiving!

I would go custom.. I do not like the little 17's on the 4cy exl. They are just plain and too small for the size of the car.

I like something in this style..

The 5 point rims on the 2013 don't look bad at all...

Here's my '12 V-6 4wd NAVI EX-L that I've had for about 4 months.

These are actually the OEM Size Chrome Look Honda Rims that have been powder-coated in a Glossy Gunmetal finish.
I've had the front windows tinted to match the rears -but that's the extent of my mods....for now.

Needless to say - I really dig the look!

Love the dark wheels, how much is powder coating?

I'm actually thinking of using PlastiDip on the OEM rims. I like the rims, but don't like the color. I have an Alabaster Metallic Silver 2012 CT, and having silver rims is too much.

I might just do what this guy did.

I like the look of the HFP 19 rims, though if I get a second set, they will likely e OE. They can be had cheaply (ebay, sets are $450 shipped) and I would like a set of dedicated snows, as it would let me put on better performance tires for the summer.

I went with the stock 17s on my CT because I thought the 18s were ugly...not worth the huge amount of cash.

Love 5 point rims. These are what I'm considering...

A couple others too, but this is the look I prefer...NOT with lo-pro tires though.

I think the ones that are on the 2013 looks great IMO

I got a set of 20" wheels and kept the stock wheels for my snow tires.
