The standard compact spare is a 16" wheel. I'm not sure why Honda promotes it as a 17" wheel when it's not. Just get a 16" tire and you'll be all good.More spare tire frustration. I ordered from hondaautomotiveparts.com (Majestic Honda in RI) Part Number: 06421-TXM-A11 Part Name: "Wheel, Temporary 17" Kit" so I walk into the shop and he is suspicious that the tire and wheel are incompatable. Damm he was right the wheel is a 16-inch wheel, not the 17 inches I ordered. So I went home and called, first they said that is what you ordered then the story changed to that is what Honda sells. I pointed out that the name specifies 17 inch. Bottom line they claim no such thing as a 17 inch wheel to put a spare tire on (think thinner wheel to match the thinner tire. They are sending me a return UPS shipping label but I am keeping it because the foam + jack and tools would cost almost as much as I would get back in credit (not a refund) and if they can not sell me the right wheel why would I want a credit anyway.
Anyone wants a 16-inch temp wheel I have one cheap. Now can anyone figure out where I might find the correct 17 x 4 wheel with a +45 MM offset and a 5 x 114.3 bolt pattern? (side note some web sights claim the insight only has 4 lug nuts per wheel so I went out and counted there are 5.)
