Acura Integra Rims on Cobalt

Will a set of Acura Integra rims fit on a Cobalt? They're 4 x 100 but the centerbore is 56.15mm and the Cobalt is 57.1mm, so 1mm difference only.

I'm wondering if that .95mm difference will stop them from mounting or is it small enough that it can be snugged on. If not, can I just use a dremel to grind them slightly down around the inner bore?

05 Cobalt Sedan, 2.2L Auto
MODS : 5% Tint, CM Lowering Springs, 17" Rims, 4" Ractive Muffler, K&N Typhoon CAI

it may fit, but i wouldnt do that. i think it would look wierd. just get cheap rims from discount tires. i got mine for close to 300. MB sevenx rims. mine are 15's but oh well. check craigslist also if you want to go a cheaper route. but dont get oem honda/acura rims for a domestic car, hope this helps

You would likely need to have the bore machined to fit your hub. Most OEM rims are meant to be a direct fit for that particular hub, unlike aftermarkets which use swappable hubcentric rings.

stop hating on him guys, he's not trying to put them on your car.

dude if you like the way the wheels look go for it. but you might want to have the bore machined professionally

ppl use oem rims from other cars all the time. if it fits and looks good go for it,take it to a machine shop and get them bored properly,it's a millimeter,it'll take no time at all. just ditch the center caps or modify them and cover the A up.
what wheels are you looking at using?


Tinted, partial debadge, airbox mod, tinted tails, full stereo upgrade, 4caroption catback, TTR engine mount,ss fb, cm lowering springs

Coming soon:
custom amp enclosure, wheels, suspension and more!
SC build in the making?

Sure go ahead and do it. Get laughed off of every forum your ever on. They'll look like Honda wheels on a Cobalt. People use COOL rims from other cars, not factory acura wheels, like I said before GAY, and you guys defending him apparently have no taste at all

it depends how it looks, i forgot to mention. honestly, i thinks some oem rims would look nice on a cobalt. like the honda EP3s are nice IMO. if i had to choose between EP3s and mbsevenx (which i have) id go with the EP3s. if you get the honda rims, try getting the honda logo out.
