Default lug pattern for 1993 vtec?

what's the lug pattern for a 4th gen prelude?

from my searches i've found that the lug pattern is 4 x 114.3

so is that with a 40mm offset or a 45mm offset?

got into a wreck, it was totalled and they offered $5,000 so i just then turned around a bought it at salvage value and got $4,200 and repairs are only going to cost $1,800 so i've got some change to buy some new wheels

going for 16 x 7" full polish rota slipstreams

any suggestions for tires?

Lug pattern and offset are different. Lug Pattern = 4x114.3

I've got black Rota Slips on 205/45 Pirelli PZero Neros, but I'm likin those BF Goodrich GForce.

http://www.machiii.net/wheels/Rota_Slipstream.html


aight so this website has two options

4X114.3 +40mm

4X114.3 +45mm


does it matter which ones i get?

i just gotta make sure i get tires that fit them


for instance if i wanted the 4X114.3 +45 my tires would have to be for example 205/45 right?

Taken Directly from Tire Rack:



The offset of a wheel is the distance from its hub mounting surface to the centerline of the wheel. The offset can be one of three types.

Zero Offset
The hub mounting surface is even with the centerline of the wheel.

Positive
The hub mounting surface is toward the front or wheel side of the wheel. Positive offset wheels are generally found on front wheel drive cars and newer rear drive cars.

Negative
The hub mounting surface is toward the back or brake side of the wheels centerline. "Deep dish" wheels are typically a negative offset.

If the offset of the wheel is not correct for the car, the handling can be adversely affected. When the width of the wheel changes, the offset also changes numerically. If the offset were to stay the same while you added width, the additional width would be split evenly between the inside and outside. For most cars, this won't work correctly.




You will be fine with a 40 or 45 offset.... It's a difference of 5mm

Just to make things a little clearer for you, these a three seperate different measurements.

Bolt Pattern - Setup of mounting bolt holes

Offset - See Above Post

Tire size - Ratio of the surface area of the tire vs the side wall
For instance 205(Surface Area)/45(Sidewall height) R16(Diameter of Wheel)
