I have an Elite A-Spec and looking to buy a separate set of winter wheels and tires. I want to downsize from the stock 18" to 17" for my winters. It's my first time buying wheels and tires, so I'd be grateful for any insights and suggestions to confirm or correct my findings and assumptions below. That the 2023 Integra is a brand new model makes it a bit more challenging to find reliable information, and many online retailers don't even have it as a vehicle option when browsing for wheels and tires.

I've looked through a bunch of tire size calculators/comparison tools, and it looks like 215/50R17 is the closest to the stock 235/40R18. 215 width also appears to be ideal for winter, particularly driving on snow. I talked to a rep at Quattro Tires (based near my area) who mentioned his suppliers recommend 225/45R17, though. Not sure what to make of that.

As for the wheels, if I did my research correctly, I should be looking at 17 x 7 or 17 x 7.5 dimension, with 5 x 114.3 bolt pattern, 40-45 mm offset, and 64.1 mm hub bore, to fit without needing spacers or any additional parts.

When it comes to TPMS sensors, do they need to be OEM units for best compatibility/functionality?

Following. I am looking into possibly getting snows for the stock 18s (if my car ever actually gets here before the end of winter 馃が) and then considering getting a set of 17s with summer tires, keeping the stock 18s as a dedicated winter set. Different approach but I鈥檓 sure some of the advice you get may still apply. You might want to consider base 17s or stock A-Spec 18s as options if you like the factory look as I鈥檓 sure some folks will be selling off their stock wheels as more Integras get out into the wild!

Use a calculator like this one to compare tire sizes and wheel width/offsets. Tires vary slightly between brands but not typically enough to matter. I went down in wheel size and width like you鈥檙e considering for my snow tires on my old TSX and they were great.
