Default 1997 Acura CL 3.0

What other OEM wheels will fit the 97 Acura CL 3.0? I have the stock 5 spokes, but hate the caps, as they are plastic and fading. Looking for something cheap.

Thanks,

Matt

The '97 3.0 CL had some pretty awful wheels. If you're looking for a nice OEM set, the 98-99 2.3 had some decent split 5 spokes.

BTW, the 96-98 2.5TL was 4x114.3 and the 99-03 TL was 5 lug. Also, the 1st gen CL ran from '97 through '99. A lot of sites show them as 96-00 models for some reason.

I am just going to clean them up and I got some new caps for em. I don't know why they still put the weights on the outside of the rim on the wheel, but oh well.

I fear you may have clearance issues with the front brake calipers.

depending on offset which i believe is 35, you need a 15 to clear the pads

and yes i googled it, but all i found is people asking for the biggest wheel and not the smallest, I never found any real answer, that's why i decided to ask to real person that may have tryed it. i found it more reliable.
