    Hi all, I have a 2004 se sport with 15 inch wheels and would like to swap to a set of 16 inch from a 2005 model,,,,would it be just a straight swap or would the tracking etc have to be altered....

    That should be a straight swap.

    I would not use Civic wheels on a CR-V as they are not designed for a SUV 4 wheel drive car.

    I was looking to buy a new set of "non Honda" alloys to put winter tyres on! Do I have to check if they are SUV compliant? Is there a specification alloys have to meet?

    So do Honda own the factory that casts and machines all their alloy wheels and any non Honda wheels (and there are many here in the USA) are dangerous?
