Honda Prelude Si Rims Fitment Issue on My CB7

Hey dudes and Jen. Hopefully somebody can shed some light on this for me. I bought some 92-96 Prelude Si factory alloys for my CB7 off of ebay. Three of the rims fit fine but one of them is making a knocking noise as if the lug nuts are loose. I torqued the nuts to spec with no luck so I purchased new tuner lug nuts but that didn't solve the problem. I'm really not sure what it could be. It fits on the hub just fine. Could the holes be too wide? And if that is the issue, is there any way to fix that? I just put the steelie back on for the time being.

weird that 3 fit and one doesnt. I would the orignal 4th one was bent and they replaced it with a different one that had acorn holes or someone rolled around on it with real loose lugs and it wallered out the holes. Aren't the prelude rims 5 lug? Is the accord 5 lug? Can you post a pic of one of the rims, I have 4 honda rims here that were on a prelude and a couple are flaking a little but there is at least one decent one. im probably just gonna scrap them if i dont get a craigslist buyer soon so maybe i can help you out.

The newest lude is 5 lug, everything before the newest gen was 4x114.3.

That sucks about the wheels though. Check cb7tuner's classifieds to see if anyone over there has any lude wheels for sale. Which kind are they?

Thanks for the help guys.

Reboticon- If the holes were wallered is there a way to fix it? Do you think washers will help?

Here is a pic:

No. I wouldn't try to use washers, I would buy a new wheel. I used to have those same wheels on my 2nd cb7...

I don't mean to threadjack, but.

Your CB looks exactly like mine. I have a sedan though. What did you use to drop it?

Your accord must look something like my first accord....

Which this accord was dropped on some Sprint Extreme springs.

Yep its exactly like that one. I have an LX though. Thats the only difference. I went on car-parts.com and purchased another rim for $50 shipped.
