Indeed ugly with the exception of the 5 spoke. The first gen of the 9G's are far more pleasing.

Agree...I think those wheels are a significant misstep/mistake.

They should at least add some color to them for a trippy ride experience =P

Oh, wow, yeah. Get out the Plasti-Dip! I'm really not liking the 19's all that much, either...

I'm the weirdo that actually likes the look of the new wheels. I have yet to see them in person so maybe that will change my mind. Also excited that they opened up the color choices for the Sport 6MT, I just wish the same colors will available on the EX. Really want a red EX 6MT with those new wheels and the accessory sport grille. I know, I'm crazy.

The Sport and Touring wheels look fine to me but why would they put those ugly wheels on the EX/EX-L. Should of just gave them the same 18"wheels as the current Canadian Touring.

Honda has earned the ugliest wheel award. They should be ashamed. Could be that pin wheel or saw blade. Either way=horrific.

I kind of like these accessory wheels, but not enough to drop $2000 on them.

I picked up one of the new 18" accessory wheels, didn't want to have to send four back if I didn't like, so I started with one. It's hard to tell from pics, but they are the exact same color scheme as the 18" Sport wheels. I might swap out the center caps with ones that match the color of the center of the wheel. I'd never pay $2000 either, but online they are less expensive. The cost of the wheel was much less than what Honda charges for any other Accord accessory wheel, or ugly oem wheel for that matter.

Would you be able to throw that wheel on a scale to get the weight?
