Hi Folks,

Newbie here - had an Accord for the last 11 years but never a Civic. Hope to have a Civic in the next few days tho :smile3:

I have been doing a little research and am disappointed to find that the 9th Gen uses a different offset (ET45) than the previous gen (ET55 or 50?) - from what I am reading prev gen wheels do not fit (would be too far inboard & foul calipers etc) - is this correct? is anyone successfully running 16" 8th gen alloys on a 9th gen?

The Civic I am hopefully buying has 17" Alloys & is a petrol, I will be needing a 2nd set of rims for my winter tyres (16") - looking at the 2014-2015 brochure it looks like the diesel 9th gens came with 16" alloys and the petrols with 17" - I hope there is not a reason for this - ie the clearance & wheel fitment is the same for both versions - so 16"alloys from a 2014/15 diesel will fit a 2014 petrol with 17'alloys?

for reference the vehicle I am looking at has these 17" on - unfortunately I cant post links or pics as I'm new!

and the 16" wheels I am looking at are like these - sadly I can't post pics or links!

Also - am I right in thinking that the TPMS reads from the ABS sensors?

Are there any sensors in the wheel itself at all?

Anything else I need to be aware of?

Any knowledge on what other wheels may fit - I'm just after some (cheap) 16' rims for my winter tyres - looks not very important!

Cheers :smile3:

Don't know about 8G wheels fitting a 9G but there are sensors somewhere in that region as there is a deflation warning functions if your tyres start loosing pressure.

I have 8g wheels on my 9g, they fit and like you say are further in the arch, haven't had any fouling problems. Tpms reads from abs sensors, so you'll just need to reset it when different tyres fitted. These are the wheels I'm using.

Now that sounds good JC40 - are those 16" or 17" please?

Yeah - it was the sensors that worried me Nturnb - I had read conflicting reports on if it was the ABS sensors or some others that were used by the system - so if the system uses ABS sensors and just needs re-calibrating then all should be good :)

Thank you both :smile3:

Hi,

I just swapped my tyres last year (1st time of using winter's) rather than getting separate rims and kept them in the shed over the summer, I will be getting them put back on in November ish (costs about £30 from the local tyre fitters).

I would be interested in seeing what the 8th gen wheels actually look like in terms of "inset" (I would want 17's as that's the size of my winter tyres though, but I assume it would still be inset to the same extent looking from the rear)

Does it look daft? Pictures if at all possible please!

Thank you

PS- I recommend my winters thoroughly if anyone is looking at options - Continental TS-860's, brilliant things!

Thanks JC - great link - for some reason I did not find that thread when I searched.

& yes Nelf - Winter tyres make a massive difference where I live - I will never go back to just 1 set of wheels!
