Aftermarket Alloys

Can anyone recommend any aftermarket alloy wheels which will look good on a 9th Gen? (Also would not like to spend loads!)

I don't own a 9G but its a very new car for many to look at aftermarket alloys, for sure many new owners will use the Honda options or none for now.

Good luck in your thoughts, you may find a new way forward!

I was looking at the Krypton alloys but there around 2000 or something ridiculous like that. There were some Rota ones i found for about 600 which I think might look good on a 9th Gen

The Krypton's are genuine Honda Wheels, not aftermarket.

Genuine Honda Civic 18 Krypton Alloy Wheel [08W18TV0600] - 153.47 : Cox Motor Parts Direct - Genuine Honda Brakes Clutches & Accessories

Not sure where your prices are coming from but 2000 is steep for any wheel. Cox has them for 734 all in (Free delivery), if they still have them in stock. I got 4 Eagle F1 Assy 2's for 404, meaning 1138 total. I don't think thats a bad deal personally for those alloys with Goodyears

Rare rims website will let you try the full rota range onto a side on photo of your car. Make sure you get them wider tahn standard it makes such a difference if its done right

Don't want to sound rude but compared to the standard kryptons they look boring.
