16" 1995 Special Edition OEM-style 5-Stars Wheels???

Does anyone know where I might locate a set of 16" OEM-style 5-star wheels for my 1995 Special Edition??? I really want to keep my car as stock as possible, but if I could find someone who produces and sells OEM-style fourth-gen SE wheels, but in a 16" variety (as opposed to stock OEM 15"s), I would greatly appreciate it. I thought about simply donning the 16" fifth gens five-stars, but that wouldn't really be "stock" IMO. I want to keep the OEM 1995 SE feel, but just increase the diameter of the wheels themselves. Can this be done? Can anyone help? I'm new here, guys, and just bought my car, but this IS my second 4th-gen baby. I DID own a red 1996 V-tec from 2001-2004 and I LOVE these cars!!! Sure to be classics... So happy to have found another one (stock) in really pretty darn amazing shape, and for an AMAZING price!!! Any help is greatly appreciated. Thank you!

Ive never heard of anybody making the SE replicas, or any other Prelude wheel replica for that matter. The 5th gen blades is your best best, but it requires a four lug to five lug hub conversion.

or if you want you can move down to a 15'' wheel and throw on some 94-97 Accord EX-R wheels.

do a 5 lug swap and get some 5th gen blades. they look so good on 4th gens, kind of like they're made for the car. check out deaflude's build thread. theres a couple more with blades on their 4th gens too

How hard/expensive is it to do the 4 to 5 bolt swap? I had considered simply getting some 5th gens, but the bolt pattern deterred me. I do agree, however, that they do look ill, quite similiar, and like they were "made for the car". I suppose it's as stock as I can get anyway, and I can always keep my originals. I'm just wondering what it requires to do this... Plus, without 16"s on her, I can't shod her in some bad-azz, Nokian WRG2 Tyres next time she gets some new kicks and these tires seriously ARE the BEST ONES EVER and the same ones I've put on every car I've owned for the past five years and ALWAYS WILL until they come out with the WRG3 or some such). If you aren't familar with, or haven't heard of these fine, Finnish "tyres" before, I highly suggest that you research them. :) They truly ARE just as amazing as you will hear.

Do a search for "5 lug swap". In short, you need to swap the wheel hub and all the related components to it; brake rotors, calipers, etc....
