    If you can find out the tyre size, you can make an educated guess from there, important thing is that the overall circumference matches close enough not to throw your speedo out far. Ideally you want to know the wheel offset to make sure you're not going to be scrapping your inner arches, but let's assume they're fine, they likely are in that respect.

    Ask him which Civic generation he had them fitted on so you can check whether the PCD is the same, ie. they'll actually bolt-up.

    @DeviateDefiant, he's got 195/45/15 tyres on, whereas mine are 185/55/15. There's a pic of the vehicle in the listing pic #4

    According to tyre sites, the correct tyre size for that year Civic sith 15" is 195/55's

    45's arent going to make that much of a difference. You would get an extra 4 cm of rubber on your car though with 195s on you car however

    Done some more research, the spacing and offset are different so it's a no go

    these should fit, its same PCD 4x100 and offset 45, these wheels are not genuine so you don't have to worry about centre bore, if it comes to the tyres my wife got Jazz sport with 15" wheels tyres are 195/50 so if there's 195/45 you won't notice 10mm difference :Smile:

    @moob, sorry for the late reply. They're 15 x 6.5", same as your current ones, PCD is fine, bore is fine, offset nearly identical, marginal different in tyre size equates to a slightly different circumference, not really much to worry about, just be aware of the speedo changes:

    Next tyre change sorts out the speedo :Smile:

    @DeviateDefiant I'm planning on changing the tyres on the new alloys to me current ones which means there'd be no difference to the circumference therefore speedo should be accurate?

    Guy has agreed to sell for 50 quid!
