Dope! I was looking at 18x9.5" wheels with +45 offset but I was worried about being 14mm closer to the strut compared to 18x8 +50 wheels.

Did you have to do the 0° rear camber in order to not rub on the suspension components?

Also, I have an Si sedan, so not sure how the inner wheel well looks like for a hatch compared to sedan.
I too don't know how much room the sedan has. I only took out the negative camber to save tire wear. I had no issues inboard, even with -2.7°

Important question - I just had my wheels put on yesterday, and I don't know if I need hub centric rings or not. They did not put them on, but I'm wondering if I need to add them. AVID1 Av20 18x9.5 wheels w/center bore of 73.1 on my 2018 civic w/center bore of 64.1. :/ Can anyone offer any feedback on what I need to do?

Yes, you should put hub centric rings on for a smoother ride as it may not be centered when mounted.

I didn’t have a problem running my wheels without them, but you can get a set for like $10. I didn’t have any issues, no vibration, no handling issues, no nothing. My old car ran without one for over 2 years without a single issue. But for $10, I didn’t really care. Just brought a set.

I actually just ordered a set of aluminum ones. I'll feel a lot better with them on. Gotta lot of dollars in my girl, better to be safe than sorry!
