Hello Everyone!!

New to the forum and need some advise.

I've recently received a set of Tesla Aero rims for free and was not able to find much information if it could be applied on a 2018 Civic Hatchback Touring.

Here are some the specs on the Tesla Rims:
Size: 18X8.5"
Offset: +40.
PCD: 5X114.3.
Center Bore: 64.1mm.
Weight: 21.6 lbs
Lug seat: 60 degree conical

According to the above specs, the rims should mount on without a problem.

My concern are the lug nuts. Can i use aftermarket lug nuts or will the OEM lug nuts work as well?

Any help or advise would be greatly appreciated.

TIA!!!

What model do you own? As far as I know, the aero rims depend on Tesla's model, please correct me if I'm wrong. There are models that 'accept' the aftermarket lug nuts and models that don't. I own a Model 3 and I had to buy the OEM ones. The first ones simply didn't fit and I couldn't risk pushing them resulting in ruining my car. You can search for some OEM lug nuts on https://graydonschwartz.com/jeda-usb-hub-for-tesla-model-3-review/ , they have some pretty decent prices. That's where I've bought my USB from.
