New alloys for the 9G

I've been looking for some new 18" alloys for my 9G and I'm a little in doubt as to what will fit. As many others on this forum I really love the Tomason TN1's. But will they fit the 9G? I'm not lowered.

No input at all? Anybody here who has experience with 18" on the 9G?

My civic is on FN2 alloys and it works fine....

the OEM should be 18x7,5 et50 I guess... so if you can buy tommasons with simillar figures I think it should be no problem to buy them

I have the Honda hydrogen 18x 7.5 rims and 225/40 Yokohama advan tires (size recommended by Honda). http://www.civinfo.com/forum/gallery...-2-2-dtec.html

They work fine but I'm gonna try to sell them and get some 17 inch rims instead. My Civic is a daily driver/family car and I need more rubber around my rims (for comfort, noise, protection etc).

I would look to fill those big arches if I was fitting alloys to a 9th gen. You may be able to go as wide as 8" with an et of 35

I think the 9g has a stock ET50 offset (?) but other than that they're the same as the 8g. TN1's are lovely rims, but heavy.

Be great to see some more examples of aftermarket (or different Honda wheels) fitted...

Won't 18" wheels make the ride quite hard?

Lower profile tyres can make for a firmer ride. I'd be happy with 16/17s, I just fancy some different wheels so the wife doesn't kerb the ones that come with the car (its a personal lease vehicle)

18" FN2 Type R alloys on mine. Haven't noticed any particular change in ride quality. Road noise, especially on dual carriage ways / motorway etc is quite a bit louder though.

ET50 or ET45 depending on rim size - Tyres and Wheels - Civinfo Wiki

Verified from various 9th gen posts
