need rim advice for my CRX
OK so i need to lower my RPM at speed on my CRX HF..

so i found 2 tire sizes that will work wellon mycar to increase tire size yet keep rolling resistance low..

option 1 - 155/80r 15" however i need some 4.5-5.5" 15" rims for these to fit..
Option 2 - 185/70-14 Low ROlling Resistance tires.. need 14" rims for this

Now any one aware of any 15" 5.5" rims in a honda 4 bolt.. what car would i find these on for junk yard scrounging

Same goes for the 14" what cars had honda 4 bolt in a 14" rim..

I'm ok with steelies as they will be cheap .. ideally cheap is good ..

I know insight rims would bolt up for the 14" but i dont want to invest huge cash, and id really prefer the 15" if doable.

If you get 14 inch rims you can use the insight LRRs...

Anyway, there are a tons of 4x100 wheels out there, it was an incredibly popular bolt pattern.

yeah but ideally i want to go to the junk yard and say " I need 4 15" or 14" steel wheels from a *insert car make, model and year*."

Our junk yards aren't user freindly.. they wont even let you scrounge the yard like they used to.. I used to buy more stuff as I would find cars with cool add-ons mine didn't have.. or stuff from other makes that would work for my car. You have to know exactly what your looking for then ask and they go find it.. talk about a waste of labor.

So I need to know what cars came standard with 4x100m in 14" and in 15" steel rims

I'm leaning the way of the 14" LRR tires.. however the 15" would get me lower revs... and are skinnier , I don't know there rolling resistance but it been quite well proven the skinnier they are there going to have less rolling resistance. The height diffrence is about 2-3% difference between the 14" and 15" tire..

Maybe do 4 donuts for ultimate skinny tires but that's scary

i think 15" is the hard one.. i know i can go aftermarket i i need to but thats going to cost some cash

If you have an HF tranny revs should be that much of an issue. Mine is at ~2000 at 62 mph with stock tires.

Any one from PA want to pickup and ship me some rims??

Chevy cobalt had/has 4x100 15" steel wheels

also looks like a 2001-2005 civic has 4x100mm 14" steel rims

I do believe geo prizm's had 4x100 14"...and by extension corollas of that era.
