COMPARE TIRE OFFSET

Filed under: Uncategorized — heredago @ 11:06

In addition to bolt pattern you also need to be concerned with the wheel off-set value. While the bolt patter may be the same the off-set may be different and you will not have proper clearance between your wheels and brakes.

so my question is, when looking for rims, what measurements should i consider? 15= inch, obviously. 4-bolt, for my car. 100mm, spacing between right. what else? how do i know they’d fit? clear the calipers etc?

thanks

Make sure the hub bore is at least 64.1mm (the center hole). 64.1 is the Honda/Acura OEM wheel bore size, if you can find a set of 4 honda or acura steel wheels they’ll fit perfectly. I just picked up a used set of Honda 15″ steel rims for $100 from an ad I found on Kijiji. Cost me another 80 to install/balance, so all said & done I have brand new GT rubber installed on HOnda steel rims for under $500
