Sorry, all,, I'm really, dumb w/, the aftermarket wheel thing...
I, pretty, much, thought, you, couldn't get aftermarket wheels, on these cars, because, of the, 8mm, offset, but ,I guess there's, "adapters", I can ,get right? How would I go about getting these wheel adapters and finding the right size wheel?, I don't really want to go over 16" and I'd, like to get a nice wide tire,, at, least, in the back anyway., Are there any websites, I can go to to find these wheels and adapters? Help!

Something like this;

You really should have them custom make them with a 60mm hub bore. Zs are bigger than a Mk2. This will let you run pretty much any wheel that will fit on a Honda Civic. Downside is that 4x100 wheels don't come much wider than 7" for that reason. A custom 2 piece adapter that goes from 4x114.3 to 5xsomething would let you run RWD wheels that come much wider. Downside is the adapters will cost you much more. HTH

Centerline Thruster wheels can be purchased in 16"x8" wide with the correct backspace (4.5" for this wheel) and bolt straight on; part no: CLL-8066805425. . Wes in Gainesville, FL and Dave in CA have them. Mine are on order. $189.50 each from summitracing.com - free shipping. See details in the topic called 15" Centerline Thruster on Sale!!. Lead time is about 5 weeks or so.. Jay B in AZ..

Hey Jay,
About time you're getting some wheels! Are those similar to Dave's (onedic) 7mgte mk2? Less than $190, that's a good deal!

Yep, same as onedic (Dave) - finally.. Better tire availability in 16" is what drove the new wheel purchase. As some may recall, I really like those RH C2's and by the time a few of us were ready to purchase... they were discontinued...Oh well... I hope the Wheel1 + Forgeline marriage will allow some potential new wheel options for us Mk2 owners.. all I really need is this option for J. Razor so I can buy his wheels :wink: Jay B
