Here's a look at the 12-inch 10-spoke wheels on the new Honda Grom, what do you guys think about them?

something interesting which I didn't know till recent about these wheels is that it's new 'Y' shaped spokes save weight, not sure how much was saved by this specific wheel design but saving weight anywhere we can is key!

I love the new y spoke design on the Honda Grom wheels. Better than the usual boring 3 spoke and 5 spoke.

Wheels on the Grom are really nice, they remind me of what wheels on a much larger cruiser bike look like, except these are just 12 inch size wheels and cruisers have bigger sized wheels.

This bike will look absolutely tiny next to my 29 inch wheel mountain bike lol.
I like how there is a bit of meat on the tires and side profile. Upsizing the wheels to a 29 inch would make it look to much like a CRF or dirt bike. The Honda has it's own rugged style at the moment that most will appreciate.

I love the look of a smaller rim with thick sidewall tire it gives it a mean look. I think if the Grom / MSX125 were to sport bigger wheels would ruin the aggressiveness.

You might want to get 10 inch wheels and chnage the aspect ratio on the tires so you have crazy amount of tread. Now that would look really rugged!
