2009-11 Sport 7 spoke vs 2012-14 10 spoke wheel ..preference?

Before I jump on a set of 2012 Sport rims and sell my 2011 Sport rims I wanted to see what you all prefer ..the older style or the newer (?)

In my opinion, the 2012-14 sport newer wheel style is much much better looking than that of the 2009-11 wheels. The two tone colors and aggressive curves of the spokes is what makes them look nice. The older ones just look kinda plain.

If you can find a good set of 2012/2013 Fit Sport wheels for cheap, jump on them. They're actually Modulo accessory wheels in other markets and are not cheap. A smidgen over 400 bucks new from the dealer... For Honda employees. -.-

I prefer the 12/13 wheels, but w/e they're just OEM wheels on an economy car.

Indeed the 2009's seem harder to clean than the '12/13's. In terms of looks it's all very subjective.
I wanted to get those sexy pizza shaped ones Honda made for the hybrid Civics a few years ago and on the regular Civics & some Fits in Canada. Just couldn't find any used ones with 4x100 bolt pattern for the Fit, only the 5 bolt ones from Civics.
Not my ride - but here are those beauties I wanted.

Obviously these won't drop anyones' panties, but neither will the Fit itself.
I just wanted that extra 2-4% better fuel mileage.

Ended up getting these 90's Honda rims for $100 off Craigslist:

Not aerodynamic, but easy on my pocket.

Ya I am getting the 2012 wheels and swapping my stock sized Michelin Premier A/S tires on to them. My 7 spoke wheels are for sale.

If we are strictly talking between early GE sport wheels vs the later GE sport wheels. I prefer the remachined newer sport wheels.

I sold mine for dirt cheap...kinda regret it but whatever haha.

I still have my set of '13 sport wheels, and didn't know about the Modulo information. I might end up holding onto them then.

Granted to most its still an OEM wheel, but its a good looking OEM wheel, which is few and far between nowadays.
