Today, we're going to talk about wheel specs that will fit your 2012-2017 Honda Civic!

Please note that some cars may require modification to fit the wheel sizes we talk about, depending on the suspension setup of the car.

 

9th Gen Civic

 

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.

Ninth Gen Civic Common Sizes

We'll start off going through the most common wheel sizes for the 9th gen Civic. The guaranteed standard fitment sizes range from 15 to 20-inch diameters and widths from 6 to 8 inches. But here at Fitment Industries, we don't settle for standard!

17-inch Wheels

For the most part, people running a 17-inch diameter wheel are running either a 17x8 or a 17x9.

 

SHOP 17 INCH WHEELS

Now, these are not the only sizes that people are running but from what we've seen, they're the most common.

 

SHOP 5x114.3MM BOLT PATTERN

 

9th Gen Civic Enkei RPF1

 

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.

 

SHOP 17x8 INCH WHEELS

 

2013 HONDA CIVIC SI

 

If you want to go with a tucked 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.

 

SHOP 17X9 INCH WHEELS

 

2014 HONDA CIVIC LX

 

With a +35 offset on a 17x9, you're 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.

 

SHOP 17X9 + 35 WHEELS

 

2014 HONDA CIVIC LX

 

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.

 

SHOP 17X9 + 25 WHEELS

 

2013 HONDA CIVIC SI

 

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.

 

SHOP 17X9.5 + 15 WHEELS

 

2013 HONDA CIVIC SI

 

 

18-inch Wheels

For 18 inch wheels, we're looking at widths of 8 and 9.5 inches being the most common.

 

SHOP 18 INCH WHEELS

 

9th Gen Civic 18 inch wheels

 

With the introduction of the 9.5-inch wheels in the 18-inch diameter, a +40 offset will get you a nearly flush fitment instead of the +35 with the 17x9.

 

9th gen Civic ESR

 

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.

 

SHOP 18 +35 WHEELS

 

2013 HONDA CIVIC SI

 

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

19-inch Wheels

Can you run 19's on your ninth gen Civic? In short, yes. But you're limited to width and offset. 

 

SHOP 19 INCH WHEELS

 

9th Gen Civic 19 inch wheels

 

In general, we've found that 19x8+40 has been the magic recipe for 19-inch wheels on this generation.

Tenth Gen Civic Common Sizes

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.

 

2018 HONDA CIVIC SPORT TOURING

 

Again, we see people moving away from the 17-inch wheel, preferring the 18-inch wheel, and running wider widths. 9 and 9.5 have become the standard replacement for the 8 and 8.5-inch widths.

 

SHOP 18 INCH WHEELS

 

2019 HONDA CIVIC SI

 

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.

 

SHOP 17 INCH WHEELS

 

2019 HONDA CIVIC SI Gallery

 

 

18-inch 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 an 18x9.5.

 

SHOP 18 INCH WHEELS

 

10th Gen Civic XXR

 

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.

 

SHOP 18x8.5 INCH WHEELS

 

10th Gen Civic XXR

 

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 going to be your most common sizes that are out there.

 

SHOP 18X9.5 INCH WHEELS

 

 

Larger Sizes

Now if you're looking at running larger sizes like 19-inch wheels or like 10 inch wide wheels, here we go.

 

SHOP 19 INCH WHEELS

 

10 Gen Civic 19x9.5

 

We do see people running 18x10 with lower offsets around +21 and even 19x11 +30.

 

SHOP 18x10 INCH WHEELS

 

10th Gen Civic ESR

 

From what we have seen we notice that most people running these larger size wheels have strayed away from coilovers and lowering springs and have opted out for air suspension.

Popular Wheel Styles

As far as wheels go in terms of brands or style, we see a lot of people running like Enkei RPF1's or Enkei T6S's or anything from ESR or anything from XXR or anything from AVID1.

 

2013 HONDA CIVIC SI

 

There are just so many different wheels for these cars out there that fit within these fitment ranges.
