I will reserve judgement till I see them in person, everyone complained about the ILX wheels, including me, but now they have grown on me, and everyone that sees my car, says "wow, look at the wheels" obviously everything looks are in the eye of the beholder

Looks OK but it needs a redline somewhere, like your REV GT perhaps.

If these are indeed OEM's, all I have to say is... Gross. Disgusting. Weak.

The ILX Type S wheels are ultra lame too. Acura just can't help but shoot themselves in the foot time and time again.

I personally cant stand those or the new ILX wheels. This whole two tone edgy look needs to go. Simple 5-8 spoke and mesh designs need to make a come back soon. Maybe take a hint from the German auto makers and stop trying to make Lexani/Asanti look alikes.

From what I have been hearing these are only test wheels, and are not expected to be the final choice for the wheels.

Acura wheels used to be supplied largely by Enkei. Did they change suppliers in recent years? Perhaps to the same company that makes Hyundai wheels? Hope these are not final. They are really, really sad.

Look like the ones from the ILX. They looked great in person, not so much in pics. Wheels on this NSX look real sleek and anglur kind to compliment to NSX shape. New NSX is straight fire tho.
