    Hi guys, i'm aware there's been a few threads on this but I can't find a definitive answer.

    Appears the Civic 8th Generation alloys fit the FR-V and i'm struggling to find a decent set of 17 inch

    Does anyone know if the accord alloys will fit at all ?

    Speaking from memory, aren't the FR-V wheels 4 stud?

    Accord wheels are 5 stud.

    Hello @Edwinowl the hub centre bore and PCD is the same as the accord.
    You can find technical data here: Honda Wheel Fitment Guide | Honda PCD Pattern Guide

    Other alloys may fit too, so you can broaden your search.

    On the FR-V
    PCD : 5x114.3mm
    Centre Bore : 64.1mm

    You just need to ensure they match.

    This set of 18" wheels any use to you:

    They are brand new with tyres and will fit on an FR-V. £825?

    Theyre bloody lovely mate, probably worth half what the whole cars worth sadly

    You could look at it another way. If you put them on your FR-V, you could increase it's value by 50%......

    Well that’s one way of looking at it . If I’d got the money mate I’d buy them. Car would look great with those boots on.

    @Bones126 Did you have to use spacers to fit the Civic alloys on your FR-V or did it just bolt on?

    Look forward to see the new wheels on your car.
    Add your car to the club garage and show us, this also would be an addition to your project log :Wink:

    Howdy Edwinowl,

    We recently upgraded to Mazda RX8 alloys, centre bore slightly different so need spigot rings (£5.00) for perfect fit, but other than that, bolt straight on!
