Should be fine, you'll want a narrower section width for snow. 225 or 235 on an 8.5/9 at most.

We recommend the Gramlights 57DR, 18x9.5 +38 5x120 for Brembo clearance + affordability!

Personal preference really. My limit is 250 max per tire for winter rims since they will get dings on it probably the first winter. But I still try to find nice looking ones. Also, some rims say they are winter rated, not sure what it really means, maybe the coating is more resistant to salt?

And yes 18in for sure and you don't want too wide tires, since little contact with road is better in snow.

Black (CBP) FK8 Civic Type R,
Here's some more documentation and proven data from one of our partners / clients, thus reaffirming the fact that 9.5 +45 offset seems to be the golden spec for this car.

Fitment is spot on, does not rub, and clears the suspension + fenders without issue. Stock factory suspension and plenty more room to go in the event one does want to upgrade to lowering springs or coilovers.

This FL5 Civic Type R belongs to our client Mendie (@FL5_type_r_pham). First FL5 Civic Type R equipped with Rays Volk TE37SL #systemspec. Once this car is lowered, it will look even better. More photos to come!

As shown:
  • TE37SL 18x9.5 +45 5x120 (System Motorsports Spec) - FK8 + FL5 Civic Type R compatible
  • Concave Face (not flat face). Shares the same mold as the highly-coveted TE37 OG.
  • Classic TE37 mold, available in select limited finishes. We can discuss this via PM/Email/Phone but we do not want to detail the purpose of this thread, which is dedicated to fitment and data.
  • Brembo Brake clearance
  • Suspension clearance
  • Fender clearance. No rubbing and no trimming/fender pulling/fender work involved
  • Tires as shown: 265/35/18 Michelin Pilot Sport 4S
  • 100% bolt-on affair!
  • Note: Will also fit a 255/35/18, 265/40/18, or 265/40/18 tire.
  • Users will need aftermarket Tuner Style lugnuts for added security (Project Kics, Rays, Monster, Muteki are all reputable brands that are compatible with this #systemspec Volk TE37SL fitment. Most FK8 owners who already possess this spec TE37SL will find that their sets will translate over easily to the new FL5 Civic Type R platform.
  • Hub size: 72.6. 72.6 to 64.1 hubrings can be utilized to make these hubcentric.
  • Note: More concave than the TE37 Saga / Saga S-Plus / Saga SL models. The TE37SL in 18x9.5 +45 is the most concave out of the bunch in this exclusive and limited size. The go-to!

There may even be room for a 275 tire (proceed at your own discretion). We are finding that a 265/35 or 265/40 is more than sufficient for those who plan to street-drive. As showcased in the photos and from the rear + front view, this is as flush as the wheels can get. A +38 offset would poke ~7mm more outwards and would thus introduce fender rubbing/fouling, which would require permanent modification to mitigate/reduce the chances of rubbing. One does not want to go with such an aggressive width/low offset as you would risk slicing the tire on the quarter panel/fender/bumper tab with too aggressive of a fitment. Adjustable suspension + camber plates would afford one more clearance down the road, but for the vast majority of enthusiasts who plan to modify the car, we highly recommend sticking to the 18x9.5 +45 TE37SL sizing.

More documentation + photos coming soon on our blog below:

Enjoy the photos + data! Let us know if you have any questions prior to ordering.
