Well there were slimmer ones available like the oem from 8th Gen which as I edited earlier were not as good as these on Civic X to my eyes. Off all the available designs these clicked me personally and have been wanting these. Even thought of swapping my 9th Gen rims with these ones some few months back. Maybe didn't do it for the same reason that I had to get these for 10th Gen.
I have never personally liked those complicated designs. Look wierd to me. Those Advanti and BBS have never appealed to my eyes. Always loved simple to the point and 5 spokes are my weakness.
By all means I want a tooled/metal finish. No painted stuff. Like I said I want them simple. No drama
Notice the ones I had earlier and this is the only kind of stuff I like. Have to be 5 spokes and simple. Volume is necessary this time. The sleeker ones look psychologically weak (I know that's stupid to think). I even swapped the Elegance Rims on my W211 to the simpler 5 spoke Avantgarde ones
This is the kind of taste I have Unfortunately.
