Can one use the 2010 - 2011 Inisght OEM steel wheels on a 2012 insight? I understand that the part numbers are different between the 2010-11 insights= wheels and the 2012 insight wheels. Are there any differences in the actual wheels?

Thanks

I was referring to the 2010-2011 black steel wheels vs. the 2012-2014 black steel wheels. Does anybody know if there is a difference in the wheels besides the part number?

According to the parts diagrams and lists on Bernardi (in the Chassis section)
the 2010 steel wheel is:

15X5 1/5J 42700-TK6-A01

The 2012 steel wheel is:

15X6J 42700-TM8-A01

So I guess there is a 1/2" difference in width.

Many, including me, are using the 2012+ tire size: 185/60R15 tires on the wheels that came on the 2010-2011 Insights without issue.That tire was 175/65R15

Can anybody confirm the 2010-2011 black OEM steel wheels (5.5" wide) will fit without difficulty on a 2012 insight (which came with 6" wide steel wheels from the factory)? Thanks

All I know is the tire size from 2012 on fit the 2010-2011 cars. In fact I don't think the alloy EX rims changed at all.

Most references show the 2010 and 2011 wheels as 5.5" wide, while the 2012 and up wheels are 6" wide. I'm not sure if that applies to the black steel wheels with hubcaps over them, or the alloy rims, or both. Does anybody know?
