So I bought a 2012 Passion with OE 12 spoke wheels with Contact Pro tires. My 2009 Passion has OE 9 spoke wheels with the General Altimax tires that I like. My question:


Are the 12 spoke wheels better wheels, design-wise, than the 9 spoke wheels? They look harder to clean. Is it worth the effort to swap out the tires and keep the 12 spoke wheels on the 2012 Passion?

Congratulations on your new ride!!

Dunno that one is better than the other but that updated 12 spoke design is more difficult to clean.

Then again, the swap out of the tires and TP sensors will not be without some effort!

They're just a new visual design. AFAIK you won't be losing anything by swapping them out.
