Winter Wheel Advice

Hi Everyone, so I currently have a set of 2009 Honda Civic EX rims and wanted to get winters on them and mount it on my 2014 Lexus Es350.

Wanted to get some advice on whether it will work or not,

The civic rims I have look something like this: http://preview.netcarshow.com/Honda-Civ ... 024-27.jpg
- From what I have gathered here are the specs:
1) wheel size = 16 x 6.5
2) currently mounted on 205/55/16 tires, but will be removed and getting new ones
3) bolt pattern 5x114.3
4) offset +45mm

Current 2014 Lexus ES350 rims look something like this: http://www.hubcaphaven.com/mm5/graphics ... 013_lg.jpg
1) wheel size = 17 x 7
2) currently mounted on 215-55-17 (but i was told it can also use 215-60-16 as winter alternatives)
3) bolt pattern 5x114.3
4) offset +37mm

Any idea whether my old civic rims will work for my Lexus?

Those will work

Think I did this info right
Installing those rims will give you

14mm MORE
Inner Clearance: (the inside of the wheel to the strut housing)
EXTEND an extra 2mm
Outer Position: (position of the outside edge of the wheel)

Put 205/60R16 on them to get
Diameter Variance -0.58%

It looks like civic ex center bore= 56.1mm and es350 center bore= 60.1mm

The center hole in the middle of the civic rims might be too small to fit onto the wheel hub on the es350

Maybe, but since you already have them just measure and see.

The other side is that 64.1 is a lot bigger than 60.1 so you might have to mess around a little to center everything up exactly by hand, otherwise you'll get odd vibrations.

Since you already have the rims and tires, I would give them a try (if they really are 64.1)

Yep test fit or measure, if they fit and have vibrations get some hubcentric rings
