WTB 13"-14" lightweight rims

I'm not looking for anything nice, just a decent price.

Yeah I wasn't looking for a new set of rims bowtieguy, thanks for the input though. aalb1, I am up here next to Eureka, 270 miles north of SF. I recently acquired a 1991 Hf with the oem steel rims. Still trying to hit 50mpg.

When looking for wheels you want to make sure they are a 4x100 bolt pattern.

If you come across Miata wheels they will fit with 5mm wheel spacers you buy at an autoshop.

Cap'n J,

if you're "still trying" to achieve 50MPG in your current CRX HF ('88-'91), I would expect that you probably have the California model (with the shorter-geared transmission), since the Federal HF's (in my experience) have NO problem achieving 50+MPG. For a California model to reach 50MPG, it seems that everything has to be just right (tire pressure, low wind, low/no inclines, and definitely LOW speeds). But for a Federal HF, higher speeds, etc. do not deter this vehicle from surpassing the 50MPG marker. The trade-off between these two cars however, is the fact that the California model can actually leave an intersection, whereas the Federal HF has SUCH tall gearing that it really is a slug from a standstill. Not sure if you were aware of any/all of this, but I thought I'd share my experiences, as I currently own both types (CA/FED). -Brian

Miata rims also fit if you take them to a machine shop and have them CNC'd. like I did. My Miata BBS mesh are super duper light, and they look fantastic. The guy only charged me $100 for the machining....and now they fit on my CRX exactly as they're supposed to...with no excess weight since they require NO spacers....and I don't have to cringe at the thought of any wheel studs shearing off, since I'm not pushed out any further. These rims look superb on the CRX. I topped them off with the Nokian 175/65/14's that came on some earlier Prius. Those tires are awesome!
