Those wheels are sexy. WAY more exciting than the current EX-L wheels. Hell, they are more "sporty" and aggressive than the current Si wheels.

Looking forward to finding out more.

That makes me wonder if the camoflauged picture that came around earlier could actually be the LX. Maybe they are putting the old EX wheels on the LX and the EX and up are getting these new wheels. That means LX would be getting rear discs too as the picture showed that. The speculation began because the car in those spy photos had no sun roof.

Hopefully the HF will ditch the old school Hybrid wheels. Would sell MUCH better without those ugly wheels.

Finally the pictures don't suck, because the "Point of View" is at human height, rather than close to the ground (dog or cat height) like Honda has foolishly done in the past.

I like the restyling except for the wheels, which look they're right off of a Krappy Kia. The 2013 Civic will be a hit, nonetheless. It'll be interesting to see what Consumer Reports says this time around.

CR will cozy up to Honda on this one. Part of that will be because it will be deserved, and the other part will be because Honda is probably still quite pissed off at CR for the whipping.

that's also a clever view...since it hide the wheel gap... means less complain
