    I'm just starting to build up a 91 CRX HF and have a question about doing it in stages. I would like to start with suspension/tire work first then move into an engine swap (B16), then possible into cosmetic... so basically handling, performance, bling-bling.

    As I understand it, when I do the engine swap I need to replace the axles/hubs with a set from an Integra... if I buy new wheels now, will they fit the Integra hubs when I do the swap?

    Thanks... Hey, its a learning process right :unsure:

    They will fit as long as you don't buy excessively small wheels (<14), and the lug pattern is the same.

    you can use DX or Si hubs you do not need to use Integra Hubs. I say get the car looking how you want it, then toss the engine in, the suspension.

    Nice, thanks for all the responses. Helps to avoid too many stupid mistakes if you get some good advice.

    Yeah, I ran into this problem when I did my swap, I used 90 Teg hubs and then I couldn't get my stock wheels back on. As long as your rims are larger than 14" and NOT HX/VX rims, they should work, but just ask the dealer of the wheels if they will fit the teg. I'm running Golf 14" 5-spokes right now and they fit fine.

    Why cant you use HX wheels? They are 14's (96-00 HX's are anyway)

    Because they don't fit. Not all 14's have the same space inside the spokes.
