What wheels work on a '79??

I am fixing to buy a '79 Prelude..The tires are bad on it and I was wondering if any other wheels would work on it.. There are plenty of cheap Honda wheels on craigslist here that have good tires. I am not wanting to change or customize the car, actually, I am wanting to restore it somewhat.. I am just looking for some wheels and tires to put on it while I get new tires, and repaint the stock rims.

Any help is appreciated!
Joe

IIRC any rims that are 4x100 bolt pattern will work. I wouldn't go any bigger than 15" rims tho, would probably have problems w/tires rubbing. They came factory w/185/70-13s, so to keep the speedo correct, if you go 14"then get 195/60s, 15" would be 205/50...

Re: What wheels work on a '79??

Thank you very much! I am just trying to find some cheap wheels and tires that aren't all dry rotted.. There are quite a few rims and tires in craigslist.. Actually, someone has 13 inch Honda wheels with good tires and they just want $100 so I am leaning towards that!

Thanks again,
Joe
