Apparently Honda made two different saw blade style wheels. Appearance wise, they look VERY similar. But where I'm having an issue is with the reproduction center caps that I make. On my 91' Si USDM factory wheels my repo caps fit great but on a customers 89' 2.0 Si they don't fit. The "ears" don't engage on his wheels like they do mine. Does anyone have any insight to this topic? The other differences I can notice are on my 91' wheels, the part numbers are located on the wheel behind where the center cap goes as with his wheels, the part numbers are located around the spokes. Any info on this would be great!

My 91' wheels are the pic with the cap, his 89' wheels are without the cap. The last pic is his car when he first bought it( he repainted his wheels white). had a diagram but doesn't list the different part numbers.

Adding to this as Blake and I have been talking about it. I don’t think these could have been original to the car because I think the 5 spoke directionals (42700-SF1-A11 & 42710-SF1-A11) were 90-91 options. Here are images from 88, 89, and 90 brochures (credit

Zooming in on the 1990 brochure, the writing and directional arrow on the outer face of the wheel is visible (like the gold car’s wheels above).

So it seems like maybe Honda made a slight change in the wheels from 90 to 91? Blake’s wheels being 5 1/8 instead of 5 1/2” is news to me. I checked the set I picked up and they are like Blake’s where they have the information under the center cap (they were from a 1991 as well) but they are 5 1/2.

Very interested to hear if someone knows the answer to this one. doesn’t have the 1991 brochure uploaded, so if anyone happens to have one, it would be interesting to see what it depicts for the wheel options.
