Does a regular hatch spare work? ST Hatch for example?
No, different bolt pattern. 5x114.5 for ST hatch vs 5x120 for Type R.

Sweet... thanks for sharing, also interested in the part number on the invoice that you were billed out. Hope to order mine soon after :)
Be sure to add pics for everyone once you get it mounted/balanced and then everything setup inside the car.

Just curious, all the stuff in the picture came when you ordered the two part numbers, the rim and tire? Also, what was the cost of everything in the picture? Just trying to get an idea how much I'll likely spend to get everything needed to change a flat. Thanks in advance.

Something doesnt look right with your order. Why did you buy multiple rim valves. Isnt part order #1 going to include everything you need except the tire?

#1 costs $127.47 then you buy the tire which cost $145

The price is just too much. I have been trying to decide what to do about a spare but I haven't made a decision yet. Unfortunately a full size tire and wheel can not be secured to the frame with the anchor and bolt. The wheel is too wide and the center does not line up with the part where it screws into the frame. Also the tire blocks the trunk from closing so you need to move it about 1" away. I doubt a 18" wheel with low profile tire would fit unless it was thin enough to not block the door. 18x7.5 is the thinnest I have seen and is probably still too wide.

Here are the possible options:

$1200 spare with mounted and balanced tire, kit with jack etc. Secured safely using anchor and bolt.

Spare tire from Ridgeline. I saw on the forum that it will fit on the rear but not the front. However the size is 165/90R17 and has a diameter of 28.7" (OEM Type R tire has 25.8" diameter) so it can't be secured using the anchor and bolt. Price unknown (didn't look).

Buy cheapest 18" wheel on-sale from TireRack with cheapest tire mounted. Total price around ~$180. Secure using ratcheting tie downs. There are 2 latches attached to the frame in the rear of the trunk and they would be the strongest. On my car they are red so they are probably painted the same color as the car. There are also 2 more latches used for connecting the cargo net. These are plastic and screwed into the frame so I wouldn't expect the to hold up in a crash. Would the 2 latches welded the frame and ratcheting tie downs survive getting rear-ended and prevent the tire from flying forward?

The NSX front wheel is $576.10, no spare like the CTR.

19x8.5" part number: 44700-T6N-A01
I love that Y-Spoke wheel. Do we know the weight of it or the offset?

The HART guys ran an NSX at Nationals, Chi Town Brat and I talked to them about the front wheel fitment but they weren't sure of the specs nor whether they would clear the caliper on a CTR. The only thing I see is this but I question any of the info as the same catalogue shows the CTR wheel at 22lbs...

I think it’ll be very difficult to find a used set of front NSX wheels. They’re 2k+ brand new. Rather buy a set of aftermarket at that point.
