#22 of 263 '06/'07 SI wheels on Civic EX/LX
Jan 26, 2007 (8:48 am)
I purchased a 2007 civic lx about 2 months ago and wanting to upgrade wheels. Sure I can buy aftermarket wheels with the exact offset i need, but the all wheels produces now use hubcentric rings and i am not sure using those. But I was thinking about trying to put the new Civic SI 17" rims and tires on my lx civic. Here are the specs for the EX vs. the Si:
Wheel Size: 16 x 6.5"
Bolt Pattern: 5 x 114.3mm
Hollander # 16114
Structure: Aluminum Alloy
Finish: Silver Painted
Tires: Bridgestone Turanza EL400
Tire Size: 205/55/R16
Civic Si rims:
Rim Width: 7J
Tire Width: 215
Aspect Ratio: 45
Rim Diameter (inches): 17
Offset: 45 Load Index: 97
Number of Bolts: 5
Speed Index: W: max 270 km/h
Bolt Pattern: 5 x 4.50 or 5 x 114.3
Can anyone tell if me if these wheels/tires will fit without having to buy spacers or added mods? Any input on this would be appreciated.

I also want to swap out my steelies on my '06 LX and I found some great Accord wheels, but have been told by others that they won't fit. Bummer. Might have to break down and just get some EX rims somewhere. I think the LX looks a little boring without some nicer rims, but will probaly have to wait awhile longer.

I am being told by one honda dealership that the positive offset is wrong on the SI wheels and won't fit on the lx/ex. It is a +45 offset, but so is the standard ex wheel, the only difference is the si wheel is a 17"X7" where the ex is a 16"x6.5"...I might also have to go with standard ex wheels, just to make it look better, or aftermarkets, but those si wheels look awesome, especially on a silver car.

if i were you i would have them looked at. i have the same problem and it turned out both my rear tires at broken belts in them at 30k. I don't want to say the problem is bad factory tires because my front ones are fine and they are the driving tires, but it might be. all I know is the warranty better cover it.

I have a 2006 Civic EX sedan with almost 20,000 miles now. My tires are the same and it WILL be a problem. After 15,000 miles I was getting a vibration and noise in the rear and took the car in. The dealer said I needed 2 new tires because the inside edges of the rear tires were completely worn and left it at that. I went back a week later after checking online and finding it to be a fairly common problem. Over 4,000 miles later and I'm still trying to get it taken care of. I was told two weeks ago Honda has a bulletin about it and needs to send a rep out to the dealer to look at the car. I can't find anything about the bulletin. Then last week the dealer called me back saying they ordered 2 tires and Honda will split the cost with me. Got a call today saying the tires are in. Well, I'm not paying for tires that were destroyed due to whatever the problem may be with the rear suspension, just to have them destroyed again because no one's doing anything about the problem. So the fight to get the problem fixed will continue tomorrow when I call the dealer back. All I know is that the service guy at the dealer said 06 and 07 civics were affected and I think it's going to be a major problem.

Bought some new rims on eBay last week...16" Honda Civic wheels from a '05 Civic Si. Should be on the car by the end of next week. Think they will be a big improvement over the steelies with bolt on wheel covers on my '6 LX.

I looked at a set of 2005 civic si wheels also..but wasn't sure about the offset. Would you mind sending me some pics when you get them installed? Just curious as to how they look.

Aren't the '05 rims four bolt? or are the Si rims 5 bolt...?

I just looked again at my EBAY acount and there are 5 lug nut holes in the rims. You got me scared there for a bit. Whew!! When I spoke with the seller, I made sure that he knew that I had a '06 Civic with the 16" wheels and again got an e-mail confirmation that these rims would indeed fit the car. I found a chart with all the information needed and after hearing all the numbers, he said there'd be no problems.
I expect them sometime next week and am figuring they'll be installed next Friday at my mechanic's shop which is within walking distance to my installation.
