I'm thinking of buying a set of Type R take offs, does anyone know if they will fit without rubbing on a hatchback? Any help is appreciated

Someone put a set on a Si so I imagine they fit the hbs also. Just needs lug adapters.

The pattern is different? There is enough room to fit an adapter plate without hitting the quarter or the fender?

Do any of you know if someone sells a hub conversion kit? Or how would someone go about doing this so I didn't have to use spacers? Any ideas/thought?

Just buy some decent hub centric adapters for $180 and call it done.

They fit, no rubbing issues what so ever on 19mm adapters.

There's actually plenty of room from the Tire to the Fender.

Wow that actually looks amazing. Might consider that. I dont know though if I would be able to drop the car, I would most likely rub if I got the sportlines I wanted.

How's the ride in comparison to the 18" wheels? I'm considering upgrading to 19" but I'm wondering if the ride will substantially worse.

I went from 17" to 19". It's noticable but still comfortable enough.

I never really drove on the factory 18's. Just from the dealer home, then immediately pulled them off day one. I had a set of 19's with 235/35/19 Pilot Super Sports. And the Type R's with Continentals feel razor sharp and fast steering response, plus a lot smoother if that makes sense. The tires are a bit more firm but definitely not "harsh"

Lowering on Sportlines this Saturday. I'll let you know how the fitment is.

I ran 19MM adapters with no issues, but I did have to shorten my rear wheel studs.

With 21-22MM you wouldn't have to.
