A Replacement Wheel Costs $$$!

I have quite a bit of curb damage to the wheels. Original tires are getting on in age at 46750 mi. Started looking at wheel options vs getting the wheels repaired at Wheels America. Then I decided to check the Honda estore for how much original replacement wheels cost. Turns out the MSRP on an OE wheel is an eye popping $951.14! I guess repair or aftermarket wheels are the way to go.....

Turns out Honda went out of it's way to engineer a passive noise cancelling device integrated into each wheel!

Some more info here:

Feeling pretty rotten that I've curbed our wheels quite severely, the optional Honda wheels have a cheaper MSRP, and appear to have no covers that make noise rolling around the parking lot (at least running 30.5 PSI), these are a cheaper option that I guess would have the same feature:

08W18-TRT-100

I could get some super light aftermarket wheels for this pricing....
