All 2017-present Honda Civic Type R models.
The Civic Type R has always been a competent track machine, but the latest FK8 generation takes things to a whole new level. Having broken the Nürburgring lap record for FWD production cars, the new Type R is a truly impressive feat of engineering and technology.

Performance Street, Track, or Race Fitments
We currently produce only a single wheel size that we recommend for the FK8 Type R which can be used for nearly all types of street, track or race driving. These wheels work well with anything from all-season tires to all-out racing slicks.
- Since our wheels use a center bore of 72.56mm hubcentric rings are needed to center the wheels properly on the Civic's 64.1mm hub. Additionally, the Civic Type-R compatible wheels require aftermarket lug-nuts with a 60° tapered seat.
Recommended for most types of street and performance driving. Allows proper front-to-rear tire rotation to extend tire life & improve handling balance.
- Front & Rear: 18x9.5" ET43 or ET45 with 265/35-18 tires
- Available in our EC-7 (ET43), ARC-8R, and EC-7R designs.
- Popular fitment.
- 18x9.5 ET43 EC-7 will be a direct fit
- 18x9.5 ET45 EC-7R will require a 3mm spacer to clear the factory brakes.
- 18x9.5 ET45 ARC-8R will require a 5mm spacer to clear the factory brakes.
"What about torque steer? Shouldn't I stick with the factory offset of ET60?"
While changing to a lower-than-factory offset can influence the car's tendency to exhibit torque steer, the FK8 uses a significantly improved front suspension geometry, which has a much stronger influence on torque steer than the wheel offset. Using a lower offset such as ET43 for example, may cause a marginal increase in torque steer, but this difference is unlikely to be felt by all but the most seasoned performance drivers. Even with the lower offset, the torque steer is still so minor that it is easily overcome, and does not make the car uncontrollable in any way. Check out this video for a great explanation of these concepts.
