Looking for Insight wheel numbers

I haven't had any luck at all finding any numbers on the Honda Insight wheels, I'm looking for bolt pattern, and weight, and a photo of the back side would be nice, doesn't anyone on here have an Insight? care to pop a wheel off, and mesure the bolt spacing?
I asked a dealer who clames to be the biggest dealer of hybrids in the US, and they said they would get back to me, and nothing has happened yet.

You might want to head over to insightcentral.com and ask those fellows. I'm sure someone can help.

Insight wheels are 4x100 and weigh about 11 lbs, also the front brake rotors are the same as 88-91 HF's and the rear drums are the same as the aluminum 1st gen HF's.

I was told that the insight rear drums are narrower then the civic and crx rear drums, but that they will still work, you just have a gap around the outer lip.

Thanks for the info in the bolt pattern, and weight, I kept looking at those rims on the insight, and on the civic hybrid, and drooling, alloy semi-disk wheels, and I figured they might be light weight, being on an insight and all, but you can't tell just by looking at them, they just look extreamly aerodinamic, and that seems like a good thing in a wheel.

so that's next on my list, next time I have an extra $600 to spend on car stuff, buy a set of Honda Insight rims from a junk yard, and a matching set of tires, and put them on my VX.
