My wife & I just bought a 16 Civic Touring in Orchid Pearl. She wants 18's for her summer wheels so I'm looking to see what options people have chosen to go with.


So, as the title says........post your wheel setups whatever you have.....might see a 17" or 19" package that changes her mind.

Really....no one has aftermarket wheels they want to show off?


I'm new to Honda & looking for some inspiration in my hunt for black 18" wheels that my wife wants for her Orchid Pearl Touring sedan that we're picking up this Saturday.

So my wife decided on a set of 18x8 (42mm offset) Ruffino Boss rims in Matte Anthracite Grey. The tires are Goodyear Eagle F1 Assymetric All Seasons in a 245-40-18.

That looks really good ! Gives it an oem+ kind of look. Looks like they fit good, whats the clearance like with the 245s ?

I like those for the fact they remind me of RSX Type-S wheels, used to have a set on my EG Civic hatch and always liked it on just about any generation of Civic

Surprisingly there is a lot of room....maybe it's the 42mm offset so they don't stick out too much.

Went for a white on white, classic ITR style. Wheels are old school JDM stuff from my friend's dad's shop, Pageant by Modia wheels. Just waiting for options to lower it now.
A red pinstripe around the outer edge would really make it pop nicely. Looks good though man

Got to love the center bolt looking wheels and from the angle of it that I posted below... has me imagining it all decked out as a race car lol



Hopefully soon enough we'll see these as touring cars.

Always did like white wheels on white cars but they seem hard to maintain when it comes to dirt and the like.

It's actually been very manageable so far and not a problem. Might also have to factor in what pads you're using. I'm still on OEM pads of course, and I'm a bit of a hypermiler so I'm easy on the brakes. It's definitely not like looking at Benz or BMW wheels where the brake dust there is insane and turns every single wheel into the bronze age.

B20Vtec, Smith: Thanks!

Lol funny story pertaining to that, I actually know of a guy that leaves his wheels full of brake dust for that look specifically. I told him to keep waiting until the day he tries to clean it and the rims are damaged beyond cleaning can fix ahah

Do you like any of these?

So, I've been looking for wheels for my EX-L, playing around with pasting wheels onto a pic of my car. I do like the Honda accessory wheels and I like the look of the older 18" HFP wheels. I was also considering some Niche Type 169's but I feel that they would not look good on a car that is not lowered. That is the custom wheel does not match the non custom car.
I am really leaning toward the 18" HFP wheel. Has anyone put 18's on their 10th Gen? Post some pics!!! Give us ideas! Pictures of wheels themselves, pictures of wheels on other cars, and wheels in a showroom just don't tell us what they'll look like on our car. so please share. I'm dying to see what they look like.
Also please specify the wheel size & width, offset and tire size you went with so we can get the info we need to make the best choice.


Thanks in advance guys & gals

Nope... unfortunately H&R still hasn't listed anything on their website.. I don't understand how no one has come out with springs yet
