After doing the headlight and grill update conversion on my 2012 EX, I decided it was time to get some different wheels. I've never been a fan of the stock, painted, monochromatic wheels, so I was looking for some with a bit more contrast. After a lot of searching, I finally found these black and machined beauties from the Civic Si of the same model year. I scored the whole set for only $500 and was able to keep my existing tires. It was a quick swap out at a local shop, but in my opinion, it's a major improvement.

I am in the same boat with searching for rims and I like yours so where did you search to find those. What's the largest size we can go up to

I did my searching on eBay, focusing on 17" wheels so I could keep my same tires. Once I settled on a style I really liked, I ended up finding these at a local Honda dismantler. I don't really know what is the largest size you can go up to, but I'm pretty sure if you go to a larger wheel diameter then you start running into speedometer inaccuracies and other possible issues. I only did enough research to make sure these would fit without any issues or additional adjustments needed.

Original stock wheel specs
17" diameter, 6.5" width, 50mm offset, bolt pattern 5x114.3mm

New Civic Si wheel specs
17" diameter, 7" width, 45mm offset, bolt pattern 5x114.3mm

Thanks. I managed to go over 10 years without a single scratch on the original wheels, so I should be good. 馃馃槵
Thankfully, I rarely ever have to park anywhere on the street.

My wife, appears to use her wheels as "curb feelers" any chance she gets. Happily, the Lexus she is driving now has tires that are designed to inhibit her proclivities, and protect the wheels better. :p So far, it appears to be working.
