    What do you think about the 2019 and down OEM stock wheels of the sport/SI wheels Yay or nah? Too simple or too busy? Refreshing or boring ??

    2019 and down? Some of the best looking ever in the Honda lineup since RSX Type-S wheels and the EM2 Si wheels. Been a long time since we've had some good looking OEM wheels that dont look like flower petals.

    I don't like any of the shiney metal ones that come from Honda. They all look like Soccer Mom wheels.

    But the all black wheels. Now they look hot!

    This is what I have.

    I like the blend of black paint and exposed alloy on these wheels. The Si's in particular with the machined alloy looks awesome, but I'm guessing will make scratches a real pain to remove.

    I ditched the stock 17’s on my 2018 Touring sedan in favour of Sport Hatchback 18’s.

    I'm a complete Civic (and car for that matter...) noob, so forgive the dumb question...

    Can I put OEM sport wheels on a 2019 Civic EX? The car came with 17" wheels, are you able to upgrade to 18"? How does that effect the TPMS sensor for the wheels...? I'm not all that happy with the greyish wheels that came with the EX, and I've been thinking about swapping the wheels out with something more silvery/shiny, but I want to keep it as "stock" looking as possible. Thanks!

    That front under spoiler in the picture, the corner looks just like the Mugen one, I'd definitely look into that if I drives a non Si Sedan:yes:

    They'll fit perfectly fine and will look better. No worries on the TPMS because we have an indirect system; it's not in the wheel.

    I agree with you on the 2019 wheels. That grey finish looks dull in contrast with many of the Civic paint colors.

    That's awesome to hear - thanks. Is there much change going up a wheel size in performance/ride...?

    Handling will be better with a small sacrifice in ride quality and mpg's (thinner sidewall, heavier wheel/tire combo).

    Though I’m biased because I have the Hatch Sport, but I like the darker tint on the sports. Look really good for an OEM wheel. I’d buy em off someone if I had a different trim. It’s a cheap way to get a nice looking wheel.

    The factory wheels on my 2019 Sport Touring Hatch is one of the reasons why I bought the car. I have to admit though, the EX wheels are the ugliest things I've ever seen.
