Tires, Wheels, & Suspension

Ideas and impressions

DIY Spring/Strut Install

DIY: Spring & Strut/Shock Install for 3.2 CL (PDF printer friendly version)

Tires

Stock size: (CL) 205/60R16 OEM CL wheels: 16x6.5 w/+55 offset; (CL-S) 215/50R17 OEM CL-S wheels: 17x7 w/+55 offset

Aftermarket Upgrade (CL-S): 235/45R17 same approx diameter as stock, larger foot print, more traction, & better OEM wheel protection.

Aftermarket Wheel/Tire info

Wheels come in many different sizes making it difficult to say this will fit or that will fit across the board.
One thing is certain though, an offset lower than +42 on a wheel wider than 7.5” will likely rub your rear fenders if you are lowered.
Start a thread in the Tires, Wheels, & Suspension Forum if you are questioning a particular wheel’s fitment.

Rubbing Solutons
https://acurazine.com/forums/showthread.php?t=178647&highlight=rolling+fenders
Buying wheels/tires that fit properly is the best solution.

RonJon Sport Design makes wheels specifically designed for Acuras.
See http://www.ronjonwheels.com/ for more info or PM rondog.

Exhaust Headers

FYI: AT applications will not fit a 6spd CL-S. However, 6spd applications will fit both models.
