17 rim/tyre recommendation for 9G

Im considering replacing existing 16 rim and tyres with a set of 17.

Do you have recommendations on reasonably priced black 17 rim and tyre?


Thanks in advance!

Wheel choice is always a very personal thing so get what you like not what others like.

If switching to 17", I would also need to replace tyre 700 - 800. Or I could also still keep 16" size, just replace alloy wheel. I can live with both option, just really dislike the default 2013 alloy...

Here's the one. I think this is the 2012-2013 16" Honda OEM Alloy on it.

As far as wheels go, you can get some of the nice OEM diamond cut wheels for ~160 (17") - That's a safe bet for compatibility.

Yes, Per alloy - Here is the hendy shop where I found them first, though there are some other places to get them, and this is a good price:- 160.20 Inc VAT.

https://www.hendyeshop.co.uk/17-argo...1b-33563-p.asp

Tyre size fitted on these stock is 225/45/R17; You can get a decent tyre for about 80 - The V105s that come with them stock are 73 a wheel, and I've never had any issues with grip.

There is a slightly dinged one on their Ebay for 130, Not sure it is worth it though: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Honda-all...-/322344791721

Thank you, this one looks decent and it's probably "safer" than the after market wheels. I will look around for it.
