Default *Official H/T OFFROAD/LIFTED CR-V thread!*

Since the last one was a thread inside a thread, I figured we should start a new one.

-Post up pictures of your Offroad/Lifted CR-V!!

I'll start with mine:

2001 Electron Blue Pearl Honda CR-V
5 Speed
15x7 (0 offset) Crager Soft8 with 8mm spacers
Old Man Emu springs

Hope so! There are a lot more people buying CR-V's. Just thought this would help the CR-V section a little more organized.

Your Crv looks good man. Do you have any issues with rubbing at all?

thanks. rubs at full lock even after some smashing and grinding. some wheel spacers would fix it but its not worth it as its in winter mode and will never be winter driven again.

Here's mine. Lifted on OME springs and Sensen struts.



Seriously considering the Soft8's because I want the more aggressive offset now that it's actually lifted.

Your CRV is in really good shape! I love the color, but I may be partial to it as well

What size tires do you have on it now?

Just ordered the Cragar D-windows off of Summit, along with some 1/2" spacers. 15x7 6mm offset +4.25" backspacing. Should be rad. :-D

Those 1/2" spacers are gonna put them out there! That will look really good. I would just make sure you have enough thread sticking out of the studs.

Yeah I'll definitely test fit it first before having the tires dismounted from my existing wheels. OSX2000 ran basically the same setup on the same wheels and said that due to the decreased thickness of the steel wheels vs typical aluminum wheels it pretty much balanced out almost exactly. I was just trying to find the old thread about it. Makes sense though, since steel wheels aren't nearly as thick as aluminum wheels.

Got my D's on today. For anyone wanting to do the same thing, you can order part number BSP-WSG5L250 for the wheels and part number CRR-3425712P for the spacers from Summit Racing. My lug bolts are stock and there is PLENTY of room even after the spacers since the wheels are much thinner than aluminum wheels. I measured as best I could Crager wheel + spacer vs. the OEM wheels vs. the MB Motoring wheels that I had on the CRV in the pics above, and there was virtually no difference between them.

FYI for anyone who cares, the tires are 215/75/15 and I did not have to cut anything or grind on the calipers. I used OEM Honda lug nuts. Now that I think about it, in case Summit changes their part numbers - here are the specs of the spacers and the wheels:

SPACERS:
Brand:Billet Specialties
Manufacturer's Part Number:WSG5L250
Part Type:Wheel Spacers
Product Line:Billet Specialties Wheel Spacers
Summit Racing Part Number:BSP-WSG5L250
Thickness (in):0.250 in.
Thickness (mm):6.00mm
Center Bore Diameter (in):3.080 in.
Center Bore Diameter (mm):72.23mm
Lug Nuts Included:No
Lug Bolts Included:No
Wheel Studs Included:No
Wheel Spacer Material:Aluminum
Quantity: Sold individually.

WHEELS:
Brand:Cragar
Manufacturer's Part Number:3425712P
Part Type:Wheels
Product Line:Cragar Black D Window Wheels
Summit Racing Part Number:CRR-3425712P
Wheel Diameter:15 in.
Wheel Width (in):7.000 in.
Wheel Material:Steel
Primary Wheel Color:Black
Wheel Finish:Gloss
Manufacturers Wheel Series:Cragar D Window Series
Backspacing (in):4.250 in.
Offset:+6.00mm
Wheel Construction:2-piece
Beadlock Functional:No
Beadlock Included:No
Lug Nut Seat Style:Conical seat - 60 degree
Hub Centric:No
Center Bore Diameter (in):3.300 in.
Center Cap Included:No
Valve Stems Included:No
Quantity:Sold individually.
Wheel Bolt Pattern:5 x 4 1/2 in.

I also removed the stock mud flaps front and rear. Before anyone asks - no I'm not getting rid of them. I just took them off because they looked a little odd given the fact that the wheels/tires stick out further than the flaps did. :-)

I hope this information helps some people out. When I was researching how to make these wheels work I got a lot of conflicting information. One of the forum posts I read mentioned the same wheels and said "I would need a 1" spacer to even come close to making these work, so I took the wheels back." That was enough to scare me away from them the first time. At that time there wasn't a lot of people with this setup though, so I felt more comfortable going at it this time.

Even still, like I said, I hope this helps someone out who's searching. Anyway, enough with numbers - here are the wheels:





Back typically sits around 1/4-1/2" higher, but it's loaded down with a ton of stuff right now, including a jack, 4 stock wheels and tires, and the 4 MB wheels I took off. Still, I'm happy with it. :-) When my bug shield comes tomorrow I might install that and take some pics with a real camera.
