Another thing you need to know is hub bore size for the wheels. If the Tib wheels have an equal or larger hub bore, you're good. If it's larger you'll also want to consider buying a set of hub centric rings to make up the difference.

If it's smaller, it's a no go unless you have the hub bore enlarged by a machine shop.

Steve, post up all of the specs too. Brand diameter offset, etc.


18" x 7.5". I believe that the offset is 40. They are called SPYN Mod 5.

SPYN Canada Wheels

They were tight on front calipers and needed to put in 2mil spacers on front to accomodate.

I also upgraded to better tires Hankook EVO K110.


Now just need to unload the 18" Sport Pizza wheels & tires

This is a nice thread, but before we go any further, would someone put down the stock wheel and tire size, including the lug size and offset (I.e. 5x110 lugs with a 35+ offset).

Thanks for the help. Trying to find out if my after market Wheels from my Subaru Legacy Gt will fit, with awesome Toyo T1R tires. The best tires I have ever owned.

Thanks, I was hoping for 5x100, because I already have wheels. But I can always use the tires, which are Toyo T1R.

So today I ordered some 20x7.5 MSR 042 wheels with some 225/35/20 Continental ExtremeContact DWS tires and 4 TPMS. I was going to skip the TPMS but my wife isn't the best with listening to and feeling the cars little imperfections. I could see her driving around on a flat tire and coming home like "I didn't even know it was flat babyyy" I will post pictures of the rims when they come in. I won't be installing them until next year but I just have to get them now. And I ordered my rims from CarID and if anyone is looking at buying from them too talk to the live chat rep, Mitch. He's the rim specialist and gave me a $40 discount. 8)

didn't know if you had seen this but it came up when I did a google search to see the rims you selected

New to the forum...just bought a 2012 EX Turbo to go with my wife's 2011 EX...will be purchasing new rims but any thoughts of what to do with the 17" EX wheels and tires? Dealer offered me 250 for them,minus the sensors. Should I take it? Less than 200 miles on tires and rims are perfect. If anyone here is interested, message me!! Thanks

I didnt know the dealer would do that...i would probably keep one and use it as a spare tire and sell the others or keep all 4 for winter.

@hiz I'd keep all 4 for winter. @: Phife - I swear I didn't copy that picture ;) lol I was actually looking around the internet and came across that picture and another one of the same car with some Asian looking chick. They were the perfect look I was going for, a little ghetto, a little classy but still look like they could be stock. I just got my tires and TPMS in today. Heres a few pics, Ill post more when my rims come in. The last picture is of the first pic I found of the car and rims that I fell in love with, the picture with the Asian chick lol
