Every Honda Civic Type R Deserves These Rad White Wheels

These new wheels are part of Honda's Japanese-market accessories for the Type R.

While you wouldn't call it pretty, the new Honda Civic Type R certainly looks striking. There was something missing, though—the white wheels that graced so many Type Rs before it. Thankfully, Honda has fixed that, at least for the Japanese market.

As , Honda just rolled out a new line of accessories for the Civic Type R that include a set of alloy wheels painted in Championship White. Honda's also include a carbon-fiber rear spoiler, carbon interior trim, navigation systems, and a decorative red strip for the front fascia.

But let's focus on the wheels, and why they're so great. In design, they actually look similar to the white 10-spoke units that were available on the beloved DC2 Integra Type R, but Honda says each spoke is shaped to look like a sword.

White wheels date back to Honda's first Type R, though—the legendary 1992 NSX-R. And of course, the classic Type R color scheme of Championship White with red accents references Honda's 1960s cars, notably the 1965 RA272, the first Japanese car to ever win a grand prix.

So, these white wheels are steeped in Honda folklore and they look great. There are two problems, however. They cost around $2450 USD (¥270,000), and there's no word on whether they'll come to the US. I think they should come standard on the Type R, and anyone who disagrees with me is wrong.
