I think most of the aftermarket wheels are wider than stock, not skinnier.

Does anyone know what the bolt pattern is on teh honda insights? I they their wheels are really narrow.
Backspacing is the measurement of the wheel mounting surface to the outer surface of the rim, I should not have used the word "aftermarket". Backspacing controls how far your wheels stick out.

If you measure your backspacing, maybe you could find another wheel with more backspacing, that way it will tuck your wheels/tires in closer.

Since you have a thin wheel to begin with, I assume a 5-6 inch, you might want to try and check Summit Racing. I would think they would carry skinny wheels, for the front of drag cars, with a variety of backspacing and lug patterns.
