    Hi,

    Just wanted to ask if this Civic Type-R wheel is perfectly fine as a spare wheel for my 2009 Tourer with standard 17" alloys?

    It is the 5-stud with PCD of 114. don't know if any other data is required!

    thanks in advance

    As you know with fleabay, no refunds so thought I should ask those in the know rather than my 2 cents.

    well, it's smaller than yours as 8gen has 225/50/17, so if you'll put it on the front I think that VSA will kick in as there will be difference in speed between right and left wheel. if you just need it for spare, I'd buy complete wheel with correct tyres size from 8gen or just any rim from honda and any tyre 225/50 ;-)
