yea...I know, that's the only problem. Its kinda skinny...the rgr16d is more aggressive, however the offset is +55, wont work with 7th gen....anyone have those wheels on their silver sedan?or I'm the first one who is interested in trying that setup?

somebody on these forums already went out and tried to get these... he went on to say that they do not clear the front brake calipers... just like the stock Si wheels.

First off, these wheels are +45 offset, meaning you get 10 mm more clearance than with the stock Honda wheels.

Second, the 7 inch width is good for a 225 tire, which is ideal for an 18" wheel. I would think that 225/40/18 is a good tire to have on these cars.

That being said, I have seen a 7th gen coupe with these wheels and they are pretty nice. Go for it.

These are with the Civic 215/40/18s, which are thin tires. 225/40/18 should fill it out nicely.

Yea I agree. They should offer it in a powder silver color like they do on some A-Spec wheels for Acuras.

Not necessarily. Brake clearance is dictated more largely by the spoke design, not offset. Offset also plays a role, but not as much.

10 mm lower offset of same width wheels only tells us that the rim sits 10 mm more outward, no more no less.

You are correct in that respect, but I highly doubt that the curvature of the spokes would be extreme enough to offset the spacing created by the...offset.

If you're talking about the wheels in the above eBay link, you are correct.

But there are so many inconsistencies in brake clearance and offset.

For instance, 8th gen Civic Si wheels are of 17x7 and 45 offset yet they won't clear 7th gen Accord's front brakes, yet the Accord uses 17x7 and 55 offset stock wheels.

Another example, RH Evo C2 in 18x7.5 and 42 offset won't clear TSX's front brake calipers although TSX's stock wheels are narrower and of higher offset (17x7 and 55 offset).

Someone in the TL forum bought 19x8.5 and 42 offset Volk Racing wheels for his 6MT TL. The rims won't clear the brakes although they are wider and have lower offset than the OEM. Why? It's because of the spoke design.

I didnt do the testfit, I just made the post saying that there is another thread in which some guy said he test fitted the same exact wheels and they didnt fit.

Who knows maybe the guy had a V6 or a 6-speed, iirc the V6's and 6-speeds all have different brake setups from what you have pictured (4-banger). If they all have the same brake calipers then I guess the other guy has been proven wrong.

So the HFP 18" will definitely not fit a 03+ v6 sedan? Seems kind of odd that it fits the 4cl but not the v6?...

Do you have any issues with the wheel fitment? Does it clear the calipers well?

Also I've seen a TSX with them as well..

dont bet on it, the guy who test fitted them at first had a V6... the one pictured has a 4cyl, like I said earlier... I believe V6's have bigger brake calipers, but dont quote me

Yeah, I read that thread. I just find it weird that it fits the v4 fine but won't fit the v6?...

its fine. you can slam them and it will still be fine

the more common offsets used are between +35 and +48 with a 7.5 - 8.5 in wide wheel

thanks, i appreciate your reply.
i only considered the civic version because 1. they're cheaper, and 2. the offset is a little better than stock. i dont really care that its only a 7" wide wheel because i have a 4cylinder and 225 is wide enough. i was thinking of putting 215 or225/45/18 tires on it, which would be a better choice?. would that be bigger than stock? or around the same because currently im on the stock 205/65/15 wheels. if its a tiny bit bigger i dont care. but i wouldnt want it to be a smaller diameter than stock

So the consensus is these wheels will work with the i4 calipers but not the V6 ones?

Is there anyway to get these wheels with the v6?
