Starting to plan out the winter wheel tire package for my wife's 2017 CR-V.

I need a source of low cost alloy wheels. A close-out or something of that nature. I got super lucky on my WRX several years ago and scored a set of alloys for sub anything online. Now for the CR-V $97 ea seems to be the lowest. Any ideas?

There's a bunch of them on Tirerack for $59 + shipping that look nice. Free mounting if you buy the tires there as well = score!

edit: looks like quantity available on some of those is limited.

Not the lowest cost but I bought some CRV alloy wheels on ebay about 5 years ago.

Are you willing to buy used tires? I've bought used OEM wheels for all my snow tire sets, never spent more than $200 for all 4 alloy wheels on Craigslist

I particularly like OEM wheels since they always seem to look more "stock", plus they're available with the exact hub bore and the lug nut seats (for the Honda, they use the specific ball seats).

With aftermarket wheels, you might have to have to use hub spacer rings and keep a separate set of lug nuts. I buy OEM TPMS sensors.

I just bought a set from an older Altima for my new LEAF. I found that 16" wheels fit, plus the snow tires for the proper 16" wheel size are significantly less expensive than the OEM 17" tire size. Definitely worth checking into smaller wheels!

Links would be cool. I saw nothing like that at TireRack.

Don't really want used tires, BUT that sounds like a good idea to get some OEM wheels.

Discount Tire is good CS, really excellent here, but their prices are now high. I didn't see any wheel deals. And of course they charge sales tax, online, and in the shop. Not sure where you came up with that.

Oops, I meant used wheels! Yeah, I highly recommend OEM wheels.

+1 You can pick up a set of wheels cheap at a yard and purchase whatever rubber you want.

I'm generally a junkyard person.

Though Hondas seem to require Honda wheels. The calipers are "fat" , so even though the wheel has 6 or 7 inches of backspace, another manufacturer's wheel in the same bolt pattern with the same backspace and offset won't end up working.

5x114 (64.1mm Center Bore) and the world's your oyster, but the competition is more fierce as well.

I would look for something like 2005 caravan rims. What size do you need, to clear your brakes? I can't imagine CRVs using the full 18 inches they seem to come with.

I was having a devil of a time finding common 5x100 rims but eventually found "subaru" rims without the size listed, and with a bigger hub bore (better than smaller! smile ).

We'll see if this link works:

Ok looks like it does. Some of the results are 17 inch wheels which are - 1 inch so hopefully you'll consider those as well.
