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.
They are about $580.00 each, less than a CTR wheel, however, it is still to be determined if they will fit.

Haven't mounted the tire yet, but test fitted w/ the rim only. Notice the 4" plus/minus pop up w/ the cover lid. My trunk tray won't fit now, hmm.

WTF! I can't be the only one irritated by this. Does the jack even fit in anywhere? Im disappointed to say the least. Will the cover sit down flat/flatter without the tool caddy on there? Could the rim be mounted with the face of the rim out and would sit lower in the well?

You guys also need the new cover for $311. It has the foam parts that raise it up flush and is also wider to fill the whole floor.

OK, I'm coming down off the ledge. Thanks! Now that I'm looking at the picture you can see the larger foam blocks underneath.

I emailed the parts department of the parts site. They said on 10/10/17 the #1 part which should include everything but the tire should be released... But it is all on back order

I think they prematurely released the CTR, it doesn't even have the spare tire and etc....

Don't think they prematurely released it. They probably decided not to include it for a few reasons. Cut weight, spare tire won't fit over the brembo brakes and there are probably other makes/models moving to only include the inflation kit.
