Bronze colored wheels

This is a discussion on Bronze colored wheels within the Grom Wheels & Tires forums, part of the Honda Grom Garage category; I see quite a few bronze wheels in photos, were these factory option in other parts of the world?...

    I think all OG grom's came with them before going black on the new SF models, apparently they are lighter too.

    Asia and Europe got the Gold rims 2013-14-15 time frame, USA got Black

    You can buy them here and it comes with bearings also but no matching rear cushion sprocket unit with gold to match you have to paint your stock one

    Wheel, Sub Assy. Fr. Gold, MSX125 Grom | TYGA-Performance

    Rear
    Wheel, Sub Assy. Rr. Gold, MSX125 Grom | TYGA-Performance

    I bought these from Tyga back in 2013 before I received my grom and it was cheaper even with shipping than trying to find one in the USA or buying a OEM stock rim from a USA Honda dealer.

    Any idea where we can get black Enkei wheels?

    Thanks @ CiscoSanJose

    I wanted some color wheel options to go with the gold forks. Then I'll repaint/experiment with the black take offs some time later.

    The black Enkei wheels were the OEM ones for 2014-2015 USA model. If you buy the OEM part, that's what you'll get. They cost a lot more than the 2016+.... are a bit lighter, perhaps stronger, but otherwise interchangeable with the newer ones.

    Even a little bit of weight reduction in wheels can add up to a big time performance boost in acceleration and handling because it's rotational mass. A thread elsewhere on this site claims you can reduce rotational mass by 2 pounds if you switch from the Honda wheels to the wheels made by Enkei. That's a decent amount.
