Well, there is one problem...they dont fit


Civic rims are 4X100 pattern.

Re: 14 inch civic rims on a 4th gen lude?

yeah you cannot run stock civic or integra wheels, but you can run stock accord wheels. if you go with a small size like 14" my only concern would be if they clear the calipers or not.

even if they did fit, which the fact that they dont has been covered, the tiny rims would look out of proportion imo.

Re: 14 inch civic rims on a 4th gen lude?

I do not think that 14 would clear the calipers on a 4th gen. I know that the 15 barely fit over the VTEC calipers.
15's with a 7 or 7.5 inch width would look much better than a 14 inch. The only Civic rims that I could think of that would possibly fit would be a 06&up, but I would require the 5 lug swap, or a 5th gen.

Re: 14 inch civic rims on a 4th gen lude?

i think even the stealies for the S models are 15" rims.

Every reason why they wouldn't fit has been covered already

Re: 14 inch civic rims on a 4th gen lude?

I have 14's on my car. Mine's just a regular S. SOHC auto. I know my bolt pattern is 4x100 because I look up wheels for my car all day at work. So idk my .02

In hindsight I do work @ pepboys so it is likely that out system is wrong, but 14's do fit my car. 195/65R14 - Current wheel size.

79-82 and 83/84 are also 4x100. Anyway, 14" wheels will clear S and Si calipers (same thing), but not VTEC calipers. S came with 14" factory

I didn't mention 79-82 and 83-84 because they all had 13" wheels.
