As the title says, are they compatible ? I have a brand new space saver from a 2018 CRV its 5 bolt (same as the Eclipse) checked the bolt patterns and there both identical, so in theory the space saver should be interchangeable. Anybody have any experience or advice on this as I could ditch the inflation kit and use the saver instead if Im correct. I hate the thought of relying on the inflation kit anyway. A saver is a better option, not perfect but will get you out the poo on a cold rainy day in the middle of nowhere. Thanks for any help

It will depend on the stud and wheel location pattern. Would be worth while to remove one of your wheels from the car so you can compare the wheel centre designs and make sure they are identical, with the correct offset and wheel nut recess locator etc. Hopefully there is a chance it would be okay.

According to Reference guide for car wheel and tire dimensions such as size, offset, PCD the bolt pattern is the same but the center bore on the EC is a little larger. If the Honda wheel is made to tight tolerances it might not fit, but Honda might use a "fit's-all" mentality with the space saver and you'd have plenty of clearance. Best to try it on for fit.
Thanks for the replies guys. I have checked the part numbers from a company specialising in space saver spare wheels.They are half the price of oem. They have different part numbers for the Honda vs Eclipse, so decided to play it safe and order the correct wheel for vehicle combo. I know a space saver is no substitute for a full size wheel but thats still got to be a lot better than these inflation kits manufacturers are providing.
Thanks for all your input 👍
