Does anyone know the wheel size's, for after market options?
Presumably there's more to it than just size, like wheel-nut count/spacing, hub size/depth, etc. This is pure speculation on my part though.

As for the tyre sizes, for the 17" wheels:
Front 205/45ZR17
Rear 225/45ZR17

and for the 16" wheels:
Front 185/60R16
Rear 205/55R16

EDIT: It's actually "PCD" (Pitch Circle Diameter'), "Centre Bore" and "Offset" - see: https://www.twt.co.za/wheel-size-guide- ... s-rim-size

The E uses 5x114,3 bolt pattern and 64,1mm centre bore. Similar to most larger Hondas. Offset I havn't been able to find, so I'll pull 2 off some day to check.

That would be great, I'm set to get my E in September..

Had 2 wheels off today.
Front: 17x6,5" 5x114,3 ET55 Bore 64,1mm
Rear: 17x7,5" 5x114,3 ET50. Bore 64,1mm

I will be looking for some 18". Probably
Front: 18x7" ET45 205/40
Rear: 18x8" ET40 225/40

I didn't weight the wheels but they feel quite heavy.

Out of pure curiosity, why are you looking to go 18”? Aesthetics? I’m not super car experienced (this is my first car lol) so genuinely interested.

Because I can 😀
Ofcause aesthetics matter, and large wheels are the cheapest of tricks.
Further, I need Winter tires anyway (such a short, heavy rear wheel driven car is not one you would want to test your luck with on slippery roads). Winter tires will go on the original wheels.
18" also will make the car a bit more direct in handling, and since it imo is overly comfortable (almost soft and spongy) on 17" I hope 18" will be a better compromise for me.

That’s the best reason!

Looking forward to see it on 18”, hopefully there’ll be a picture when the day comes :).

I wonder if there’s a noticeable gain in range with lighter wheels?

Could be interesting to see a side by side comparison with factory wheels and very lightweight wheels, preferably with both PS4 and low resistance tires.
