Are these TL or TSX A-Spec wheels?

Bought them off someone who had them on a civic, my TSX came with crappy 16 aftermarket wheels so i had to get these!

Whenever I get a TLS Im keeping these!

Looks good! I think the TSX A-Spec rims were 17" and the TL A-Spec versions were 18".

If those are 17" wheels, and that's what they look like in the picture, then the odds of them clearing the Brembo brakes on the Type-S range anywhere from slim to none. Sorry.

It has nothing to do with wheel diameter; the TL Type-S waffle rims are 17", however, they have a sizable amount of backspacing most 17" wheels do not. I have the Brembo brakes on my car as well and when I go to TireRack and look up 17" wheels for my car, they list about 10 sets, however, if I look up the wheels for TLs without the Brembos they have something like 130 sets of wheels. Given your A-Spec wheels were not made for the TL, the odds of the backspacing being correct are pretty slim.

Thats very interesting! Do all TLS come with Brembo brakes ot just the manual versions like the Base TL?

Yes, all Type-S models have Brembo brakes; said another way, the only Automatic equipped 3G TLs with Brembos were the Type-S models.

your TSX wheel won't fit on a TL.
