This thread helped when considering changing rims / tires on my 2014 EX. But my research indicated there's more to it than the main points mentioned here. Of course overall diameter should be as close to oem as possible, bolt pattern and lug nut type needs to be the same...
But, not much talk about offset and backspace? While other oem (or A/M) wheels may fit (without hitting the brake caliper or wheel wells), if the offset isn't the same than the entire wheel and tire will be farther out or farther in. I've read that varying that by as little as 5mm can have a negative impact. Not only steering and handling, but wear and tear on suspension / and steering parts can be affected. Also, insurance. Some pointed out that Ins Co may not cover you in some circumstances where changes you've made aren't designed for that vehicle.
I've learned a lot. Offset and Backspace though sound like they are as critical, if not more so, than any other aspect. I think that's why the 'fitment' sites will say 'that wheel won't fit your specified vehicle', even though bolt pattern etc is the same.
Most aftermarket wheel manufacturer’s websites give you the ability to enter your make, year and model. From there, the website will show wheels and their specs they that properly fit your vehicle. You are correct, offset is very important and one should stay at, or very close to OE spec......the same applies to overall tire diameter.
2013 CR-V EX with 38,000 miles. I've noticed a "cricket" like sound while driving. Seems to be coming from the right side of the dashboard. It stops when the car comes to a stop. I almost thought it was something with the heat/AC but I've tried turning both on and off and the sound is still there.
Is there a definitive answer as to when to change the coolant on a 2015 CRV. I know the manual says to use the indicator on the dash when the code comes up.
However, is there a definitive answer from a Honda as to when and how many miles one should change the coolant if the indicator does not...
Eleven (?) days ago we purchased a 2020 Odyssey - and immediately put it on the highway (we traded in a 113K mile 15 Ody); eight days later our new buggy had over 4500 miles on it (lower S.E. Alabama to Oregon then southward to Los Angeles/ Disneyland).
Driving the first day or so - in economy...
The sensor for low tire pressure is on our '15 CR-V. I checked the tires and three of the four are at 33psi and one was 32.5psi. does the spare have TPMS?
Why would it be on?
Could the sensors be bad or something?
