Default ap1 wheels

Will the Honda s2000 ap1 wheels fit on the 05 rsx with no rubbing issue? I know for sure 4 front ap1 wheels will fit but not sure of the rear. Please help me out. Thanks

No, I'm pretty sure only the fronts fits.

I'm not sure if its to do with the hub's of the offset, I just know that I have read that only the fronts fits.

just a thought, but I know that on ep3's that fitting 225's requires rolling the rears but not the fronts, so maybe you could switch the ap1 wheels and use the rears on the front and vice versa, even run a staggered a set-up to allow our rear to rotate more, thats what im doing, just not with ap1 wheels, just getting rota's or sportmax and running 225's up front and 215's in the back, what exactly is the offset and rim width on the ap1 wheels?

I think you need to run spacers to make them stick out more.

jesus thats one hell of an offset, I didn't know they were that positive, you could always get extended studs and run spacers......there is a member on ephatch.com that is using this set-up and it looks awesome, ill go get it here shortly

Click the image to open in full size. I vote on the stock rims look better on the car.... With the money and time you spent looking for a set of the AP1 wheels you could have some rotas...
