Do you have a 9th or 10th generation Civic?
Have you been looking at wheels you want but don't know what sizes to get?
Well, lucky for you, Fitment Industries has your back!
Today, we're going to talk about wheel specs that will fit your 2012-2017 Honda Civic!
* Some cars may require modification to fit the wheel sizes we talk about, depending on the suspension setup of the car.
We'd love to cover all of the generations of Civic in one guide, but if you don't know, there are 10 generations of the Honda Civic and that is just too many to comprehend at once.
Let's start with the 9th gen Civic! This generation ranges from 2012 to 2015.
1. Common Sizes
We'll start off by saying the most common sizes of wheels that we see for this generation.
This is the guaranteed standard fitment range.
But here at Fitment Industries, we don't settle for standard!
2. 17 Wheels
Now, these are not the only sizes that people are running but from what we've seen, they're the most common.
With a 17x8 wheel in this generation Honda Civics, you can get a flush or near flush set up running offsets from +45 to +35. As soon as you start to get below that +35 offset is when you start to see fender liners ripped out, fenders being rolled, fenders being pulled, and that wheel poke to start to happen just a little bit.
If you're wanting to go with a tuck setup with a 17x8 you're looking at offsets right around +40 and above, so +40 to +45 will be that range to get that tucked fitment.
When you go to a 17x9, just know at the very minimum you're gonna have to roll your fenders. With a 35 offset on a 17x9, you are right on that edge of flush and poke fitment. Right around this point is when we start people, starting to adjust their camber to pull that top in just a little bit to give themselves a little more room.
Anything with an offset below +35 with a 17x9, fender rolling, and pulling is a must.
And again, camber adjustment will most likely be needed. We do see people running a +25 and +22 offset with the 17x9 but they are running a good amount of camber and of course, they have extensive fender modifications.
Now, these are the sizes that we're seeing most of in our gallery so does that mean you're maxed out at 17x9, +35? Absolutely not. We have people out there running a 17x9.5+15 on their Honda Civic.
So is it possible? Yes.
3. 18 Wheels
So anything lower than a +35 offset in an 18-inch wheel, you will start to see poke and the lower you go you'll start seeing more extensive fender modifications being done to your car.
So you can 18x9.5+10 as a tuck fitment but you're going to have to have more aftermarket suspension components to really dial in that camber to get that fitment
4. 19 Wheels
Can you run 19's on your ninth gen Civic?
In short, yes. But you're limited to width and offset.
Tenth Gen Civic
The tenth-generation Civic consists of years from 2016 and up. Typical sizes for this generation are pretty much the same as the ninth gen.
We see a lot of 15-20 inch diameters, 6-8.5 inch widths, and 35-50 offset.
As we get into the tenth generation Civic we see a lot of similarities between the end of the ninth generation as far as what people are running for wheels.
9 and 9.5 have become the standard replacement for the 8 and 8.5-inch widths.
We still see them, people do run them, just not as common.
So for 17-inch wheels, we going to be looking at similar sizes as the previous generation again. 17x8+40, 17x9+35, and so on.
5. 18 Wheels
With the 18 inch wheels for this generation, we see a lot more people going with wider widths and lower offsets.
We see people running mostly 18x8.5 to a 18x9.5.
So starting off with a 18x8.5 inch wheel, we're looking at a +40 to a +35 offset that will give you that flush look without having to modify your fenders.
Anything lower than a +35, again you'll have to start pulling fenders, ripping fender liners out, it's yeah. And as far as 18x9.5 goes +38 and +35 are ganna be your most common sizes that are out there.
6. Larger Sizes
See more Honda Civic photos in our gallery!
Now if you're looking at running larger sizes like 19-inch wheels or like 10 inch wide wheels, here we go.
We do see people running 18x10 with lower offsets around +21 and even 19x11+30
For obvious reasons.
7. Common Wheel Styles
There are just so many different wheels for these cars out there that fit within these fitment ranges.
The Honda Civic is one of the most prominent cars in the scene today. So if you felt a bit overwhelmed when you first bought yours, we hope this guide helped ease some tension!
