5 lug and 17" HFP wheels

Well after I install my coilovers i want to do a new wheel and tire set up. I want to do the 5 lug conversion and use the 17" HFP wheels that come on the Si's as an option. Any comments or criticism, how do you guys think it will look on a black coupe slammed?

Do you have a K-Swap? If not, have fun having custom axles made...

I wasnt aware that you HAD to do the k-swap. I thought the RSX suspension just bolted up to our cars. atleast thats what ive read.

They do. But the Axles between D & K are totally different. D series Axles won't fit into K series Spindles. So unless you get the outer part of a K series welded onto the inner part of a D series axle (Wouldn't recommend doing this, unless you're going to drive the car like a grandma), or you have a company make you brand new ones from the ground up (at least 800 dollars)

Well damn.. any one have any experience with the adapters that convert your 4x100 to a 5x114 lug pattern? I've also seen that around. I want these wheels! lol, the only other option would be to go with the 16" fit HFP wheels.

They come in both 18 and 17 for the 8thgen. I think they'd look nice but it'd prolly be cheaper to get a set of aftermarket rims and tires from an online store.

5 lug conversion says, "Come steal this car!!!" IMO, its over rated for factory 4x100s.

Im not to worried about my car getting stolen, it sits in a garage most the time and yeah, i want to get them in 17's. Should i go with the 5 lug conversion and the 17's or the 16" fit wheels and stay 4 lug?

if you dont plan on doing any hard driving you can get 4 to 5 lug spacer adapters on ebay for about $150 + shipping...they have 2 spacers one to bolt to your stock lugs and you bolt that up to the 5 lug adapter...its perfectly safe as long as you dont do any hard driving, dragging, racing etc...but if u do than you gonna have to do a lot of conversion work

^ That would probably create some problems in terms of wheel offsets and alignment issues.


PM BattleEndless... he did the 5bolt conversion on his '04 civic without doing the kswap. I remember him telling me he had to custom fab it with part of the new 8thgen driveshaft and a 7thgen one. You'll have to ask him.

This all seems like wayyy too much hassle for one extra lug to accomodate a specific wheel. the fit's 16" look pretty good, and you won't have to do all this work. I dunno how trustworthy that E-Bay 5lug adapter sounds

not bad -->

I think i am going to go with the fits 16" HFP wheel.. less hassle and still looks good! although 5 lug sounds amazing and so do 17's.

I have one concern with the 16's, does anyone think the will look too small on the EM2? i just want the car to look amazingly clean and well put together, and i believe wheels make a car.

There's nothing wrong with 16 inch wheels on a 7thgen. Personally I have 17's and think that proportionally, they look the best. I'd say probably 50% of people who have aftermarket rims on a 7thgen, have 17's...I pulled that number out of my ***, but that seems about right

a couple have done it. if you do base rsx brakes, the splines line up, if you do rsx-s brakes, you have to go custom.

here's my setup. if you're interested, please search, you will find out everything, just as i did.
