From Honda's perspective, it is a lot easier for people to black out the chrome, than the other way around (nearly impossible). I know many people prefer a "black out" theme, but I personally like a touch of chrome, and the BE wheels are my least favorite part of that trim level.Too bad they didn't get rid of the chrome.I guess they make a lot of money selling black out trim.
Sure wish they'd start making chrome rims again. I have a 2017 and at least its got some polished AL / gray in the wheels. I have yet to find a set of nicely designed chrome rim for this vehicle short of take the factory wheels and sending them in to be chromed which cost a fortune.I've never been a fan of it, either. To me, it looks like they forgot to paint it and just clear-coated the primer. In certain light, you can see the rainbow effect of the pearl, but that makes me think of oil on the road when it starts raining or a swimming pool with a layer of tanning oil on top.

Love the gray color. With you 100% on the chrome. There should be NO chrome on any vehicle unless is a blinged out luxoyacht. It's not really chrome..just sliver plastic..which is just awful.Too bad they didn't get rid of the chrome.I guess they make a lot of money selling black out trim.
