Rays 57Transcend offer the perfect solution for the new Honda Civic Type-R Turbo

When the new 2016 Honda Civic Type-R was launched, amongst several things, people were surprised by the car’s 5×120 pcd wheel fitment (as BMWs), along with it’s M14x1.5 wheel studs/nutsn and it’s hub centre of 64.1mm. This is a rare combination, so it was difficult to find wheels to suit the new car off the shelf!

As ever, Rays to the rescue, with a perfect solution – GramLight 57Transcend, originally designed for such as the BMW 1 series.

Either 19×9.0 ET50 or 19 x 8.5 ET35

Hub rings are needed = 72.6mm > 64.1mm

The hole for the wheel nut is quite narrow, at 25mm, so it will not allow a 19Hex nut/socket, and 17Hex is too small for M14, so our dealer in Sweden, JRM Racing AB used an internally driven lug nut (star drive, OD 20mm), supplied by Part-Box.co.uk.

Below is the car, looking fantastic, ready for it’s entry in this weekend’s Swedish Time Attack.

The wheels in the pictures are the 9×19 fitted with 255/30-19 tires.

Meanwhile, here is the car of a customer of our dealer in Switzerland, J-Spec.

Another beautiful example – again on Rays!
