    I run steel wheels in winter and have my stock wheels for summer. I agree with Scotty, the roads are crap and full of salt so why run alloys? I got my 17" steels brand new for $80 a piece. I also kind of like how the car looks with them on. Just the black looks nice.....not so much the steel wheel.

    What did you end up doing about the TPMS?

    Anybody have the specs for the 2014 stock 18" rims? Are they 18"x8"? What's the stock offset and bolt spacing pattern? Thanks in advance!

    I'm gonna bet they're the same as the 18" HFP wheels.

    18x7 with a 45mm offset. The bolt pattern is 5x114.3.

    Awesome! Thanks! You think there'd be rubbing issues with a bit wider of a wheel if you dropped the offset a bit? I'm only going to be on an Eibach Pro-Kit.

    The HPD wheels from the CR-Z are 18x7.5 with 45 offset. More clearance for the brakes.

    Alright so I got curious and decided to take off one of these wheels to see what all was under there, and this is what I found:
    The wheels are 18x7.5J ET 47 and they're stamped with the Enkei logo. That's kinda cool!
    Although the rubber is 225/40/18, it doesn't appear to be stretched at all. I think it's a bit unusual that when you search Tirerack for suitable rims for this car, it says the recommended tire size is 215mm wide for an 18x8 rim, even though I'd read other places that Tire Rack isn't allowed to recommend stretched fittings (this was from the VW/Audi crowd).
    In terms of inboard-outboard clearance up front, it seems like the thing you might run into first is the top mount of the sway bar drop link which sits right under the spring perch on the shock body. There's about 1.5" to the side of the stock tire.
    I still haven't looked in the back yet to see what might be limiting back there.

    The offset on the '14 Si wheel is 47.
