Hi all. I just purchased a new 2021 Kicks. I was looking into buying steel wheels to mount 4 snow tires. My car has 17" alloy wheels with 5 studs. Oddly, everything that I look up shows that Kicks only have 4 studs - see picture of my wheel showing 5 studs, and chart below showing Kicks only having 4 studs.
202

201

It would appear that they started using alloy wheels with 5 lug nuts in 2021, but I cannot get any info on wheel size. Does anybody confirm the 17" wheel 5 lug nut bolt circle diameter (I suspect 114.3 mm), and hub diameter (I suspect 60.1 mm), and wheel offset (I suspect 45 mm). Thanks for your time, and might help someone else down the line.

UPDATE: Strange: The listing from MyCar shows the wheels on the 2021 Kicks SR to be a 5 x 114.3 bolt circle with a hub diameter of 60.1 mm. However, to be on the safe side before I ordered steel wheels for my snow tires, I actually jacked up the car and removed a wheel to check the accuracy. I measured the hub using a digital micrometer and found it is actually 66.1 mm, not 60.1 mm. For the snow tires, I wanted to go down 1 wheel size to 16" instead of 17", in order to mount 205/60-16 winter tires. In the end, I bought 4 steel wheels that were 16", 5 x 114.3 and 66.1 mm hub diameter, and they fit perfectly. Go figure.

I'm going thru the same process getting Winter tires for our 2021 Kicks SV and I see You found what i think is the right Centre Bore requirement of 66.1mm which is the same for both SV and SR trims per www.wheel-size.com . Also PCD: 5x114.3 (5 lug) .
*** Strange its not listed at CanTire yet !
Reference guide for car wheel and tire dimensions such as size, offset, PCD
Yeah, I noticed wheel-size.com updated their center bore and lug nutspacing after I posted the original query. Better late than never nd can confirm that my wheels re indeed 17" 5x114.3 with a center bore of 66.1 mm.

I assume you ordered 17" , 5x114.3 bolt circle, with 67.1 hub diameter. If that is correct, they should have supplied 67.1 x 66.1 centric rings. However, the difference is only 1 mm (so only .5 mm per side which is why they fit quite snugly. Even so, the wheels are now "lug centric", depending on the lug nuts to center the wheel. Perhaps the wheel supplier can send you proper hub centric rings? It may not be that big of a deal if you have no vibration, but why not give fr replacement a shot.
