Oem 9g alloy wheel specs - definitive answer

Hi, i'm looking to replace my alloy wheels with an aftermarket alloys that are to oem spec.

Can anybody give a definitive answer as to what specification alloys the 9G Civic will accept???

I have these oem alloys which are: 16 x 6.5 et45 PCD?
2006 - 2015 GENUINE HONDA CIVIC 16" INCH ALLOY WHEEL 42700-TA9-E91 | eBay

I would like to upgrade to 18 x 7.5 e.g. the same size spec as Honda's aftermarket 18" Inferno Alloys

What ET tolerance will my 9G accept (without playing with spacers etc)? Do i have to stick to et45?

What PCD are 9G alloy wheels. 114pcd? 114.3pcd (like the older civic)? or 115pcd? There seems no obvious answer to this across the web.

Almost everything you have put in your post is correct.

The OEM alloys on the wife's 1.8 ES-T are 16x6.5 ET55 and the PCD is 114.3.

I've test fitted some 8G Type S alloys, the 5 spoke ones, which are 17x7 ET45 and they just clear on the insides although it is close, so I'm putting spacers on them when they go on it winter.

I find this site helps.

You have a bit of room to play with on the outside of the wheel but not much on the inside.

i'm a bit late but OEM Civic 9 size are :

Code:
16 x 6.5 ET55
17 x 7   ET50
18 x 7.5 ET50
You can choose a different ET but be carefull it does not touch the inside of the wheel arch, check Online Wheel and Tyre Fitment Calculator. Offset, Tyre Stretch and Speedo Error | Will They Fit

Thanks guys, really appreciated.

Is it correct that the 'larger' the offset number the more inwards the wheel sits in the wheel arch and closer to the suspension strut etc the wheel will be?

E.g. it is in my interest, if my wheel width is going from 16x6.5 (et45) to 18x7.5 (et50) to steer clear of that wheel and find a wheel that is 18x7.5 (et42) so the extra width wont clash with anything (Fox Racing MS006).

e.g. Et42 will mean my wheel is 3mm further out than et45.

YES ! A smaller ET number moves the wheel outside the wheel arch

Anyone know how much space there is on the inside from the stock ET50 17x7?

Just can't let go of the idea of fitting the 8G type-R Rage alloys which are 19x8 Et55

I'm putting the 17" Type S alloys on the 9g, but to be safe sticking 15mm spacers on.

Edit: specs are in my post above. They don't seem to catch but I've not driven far on them. Spacers move them out to very close to OEM clearances.

Does 17 inch or bigger make that much difference to ride and mpg or is that more to do with tyre brand ?

Both are. It's only the CTR that has changed.

Guys,

Quick question - will those alloys fit?
SUBARU STI KOŁA FELGI IDEALNY STAN 15R (5751412582) - Allegro.pl - Więcej niż aukcje.
These are the standard Impreza STI wheels - I know they are 5x114.3 but I wonder if they are not too wide?

Centre bore on Subaru wheels is 56.1, it is 64.1 on the Civic, so without getting the centre of the wheels milled out you won't get them on the hubs.

Yes. I've got a set on the wife's car at the minute. The 17" alloys from the Type S.

They fit fine and no rubbing noticed as of yet.

It's not the alloy that is going to rub. It is the 225/45 R17 tyre that would rub as it is 20mm wider (10mm each side) than the OEM 205s.

So, alloy is ok but tyre could rub?
anybody tried them with tyre on?
I could buy a spare set for winter and i'd prefer to be sure than nothing will rub.
I tryed to phone honda contact center but they could not give me information...
Thank you

Yes, I've go them with the tyres on strangely enough!

It will be dark by the time I get home, but I will get some pictures of the clearance on Sunday. Like I said, no rubbing yet, none on full lock in either direction.

8g with 7 spoke wheel just mounted on my brand new civic. As Loxy said, no rubbing, they fit fine. i'm just a little worried about wheel aligment, let's see after a few km how will be the tyre counsumption.

(Yes it needs a clean)

8G Type S wheels on the 9G

17x7J ET55 if I recall correctly. Tyres are 225/45 R17.

Plenty of clearance.
