    Aftermarket wheels, or, cheap OEM takeoffs

    Hi all,
    I'm looking for some 16" wheels and see really affordable ones at Tire Rack - but they need a bunch of bits to work. Do any of you have aftermarket wheels, with the extra parts (e.g., wobble bolts and adapters)? How stable is it? I drive like a maniac, so I don't want some weird feeling in a corner surprising me. I have 17" now, but the pirellis tramline like crazy and I was just hoping to save that for the track and get some sensible shoes for the street - but not too sensible - and the whole wheel thing has me confounded.
    Any suggestions/recommendations welcome. Thanks.
    Judy

    We have 98mm. Hondas AND THE REST OF THE WORLD have 100mm.
    You're gonna be just fine with 2mm on wobble bolts.
    So now go search for Honda rims and you have MILLIONS of choices!

    I'd look for some take offs but that's because I love OEM parts and the stock look.

    I just bought 16" take offs for snow tire use. Not pristine, but not expensive either.

    Trunkout is right about the 4x100 bolt pattern working as long as you have PCD variant bolts (wobble bolts). However, do take into consideration the offset. Our cars have a 35mm offset. The lower the offset number, the wider the stance. If you find a set of wheels you love with like say et48 (48mm offset) then you will need wheel spacers. Wheel spacer will then require longer wobble bolts, which might be hard to come by.

    Here are a few inexpensive wheels I found that should work with just wobble bolts and hubcentric ring adapters
    JNC 022 17" +35 offset
    JNC 007 16" +20 offset
    JNC 037 16" +28 offset
    Drifz 308 16" +25
    XXR 558 16" +20
    XXR 531 16" +20
    XXR 553 17" +22

    These are all pretty cheap and have a decent amount of poke.
    I still think the Enkei RPF1 wheels in a 16" x 7" with +35 are the best option. They are strong, light, and good looking.
    Good luck!

    When I replaced the wheels and hubcaps on my 500, I found that Tire Rack had only one wheel that was 98mm. Luckily they were gunmetal and pretty inexpensive. I even saved shipping costs by having them shipped directly to my local Discount Tire outlet for install. I would have gone the wobble route if I had too. I did a lot of research on wobble bolts before I bought my wheels and kind of determined as long as I did not take up drifting, wobble bolts were perfectly fine. I had never even heard of wobble bolts until I decided to upgrade.

    I think OEM takeoffs are the way to go, but there isn't one OEM wheel design that I don't like for these cars, so I guess i'm biased. Plus the cheap cost is very enticing. I got a set of OEM 16's in great shape for under $300

    I really like the look of the 16" snowflake wheels on the Abarth. However, if I were to go after market, the wheels I like would require wobble bolts.

    I've never had a problem running wobble bolts. You'll have to remove the pins for some wheels.
