Thumbs up 2018 Fit Sport Wheels.

While getting my last oil change on my 2015 Fit EX at the dealer, I found out that the 2018 Fit Sport has a set of blacked out wheels. They'll look great on my Fit. The price I got was $299 per wheel. Time to save money to buy a set this summer.

Just spray paint stock EX wheels black and save yourself a boatload of money...

I assume by your user name youre from around Chicago? CPC powder coat in Crest Hill and Final Automotive Finishes In if I remember correctly Elk Grove Village routinely run $50 per wheel powder coat specials. I believe they also have mounting and balance equipment, but those fees are extra? If you need wheels and tires to drive on while they are being coated Id sell you some 15 steel with two snow tires and two all season for $200

Aftermarket wheels can be had much cheaper. Many more options regarding style and size as well.

I love aftermarket wheels. Keep in mind the lighter weight performance oriented ones can be allot more fragile then OEM. I've had four sets of OZ Racing wheels in my life. Two sets cracked, one was only used for racing and had limited street miles. Latest set I picked up used for cheap. They don't appear cracked, but who knows without better inspection/testing? Had an original set of SSR Type C wheels. Same thing, two bent.

2018 Honda Fit Sport Wheels.

Not interested in down sizing from the stock wheels size. I'm going to keep my stock EX wheels. The 2018 Sport wheels will look sharp on my EX.

I'd rather pay more for factory stock wheels that will be more durable than paying less for aftermarket wheels that will fall apart after a year.

If you have a 2018 Sport with blacked out wheels I'm definitely interested. I'm not looking for previous years Sport Wheels.

It's about 40 gallons of gas. Gas is cheap, under $3 per gallon. Just say $120 in fuel for dummy math. It's like a 12 hour drive. Take a couple days off work. Two for the commute and spend a couple in DC. Mini vacation and you'll still be money ahead from buying new wheels from the dealer.

Just curious why you even asked the question when you dismissed all suggestions? Besides, going back you were going to buy HFP wheels? Have you bought any wheels or just want to have conversations about buying wheels? In actuality it appears you want to tell everyone what you hope to do but in reality is obviously nothing

I just wanted to let everyone know the 2018 Sport has blacked out wheels. As far as trading my EX wheels, I'm for it. But Maryland is a too far a drive for a while.


With the HFP wheels; I did find a set last year. They're a bit scuffed up. But overall appear in good shape. Tires are shot. I'll have them repaired at some point.


I'm hoping to do some things to spice up my Fit this year. Having two girlfriends tends to take money away from that.

16's, they're a bit scuffed up. $350. You live in Illinois like me. Let's meet if you want to see the wheels.
