they fit, but you have to grind the caliper down a bit first.
So its a really tight fit. I'd just use 15" wheels if i were you.

So I can get 15 inch rims and just do an alignment and i'll be fine? So do i need to get a camber kit before doing the alignment I didn't lower it much 1.5 inch or will I be okay without a camber kit and they just adjust my toe. Also my steering wheel wasn't stright it's at 11oclock when i go stright and i got new tires.. . Will alignment fix the problem, without using a camber kit ? I have 195/50R15 Tires on it. thanks

I'd like someone to explain how the size of the rim affects camber wear. Cuz honestly it's the stupidest thing I've heard this week.

Yes, your alignment is fuct. No you don't need a camber kit.

14 inch steelies clear GSR brakes.

14" steelies barely clear GSR brakes (on my buddys EG hatch at least). He had to grind down some of his caliper to make them fit, and sometimes you can hear the wheel hitting the caliper.

My car is lowered almost 2" and when i had my alignment done everything was within spec and i do not have a camber kit,

I got Gsr breaks on my EG hatch, and i had to grind the calipers a bit, to put my 14" steelies on, the caliper was to tight to the rim.

14" Honda steelie should be a problem on GSR/SiR caliper. Not all 14" wheels clear that caliper, wheel spoke design will affect fitment.

another option is to get a 5mm spacer if you really love a set of 14" rims on there. otherwise, i think you should really get an alignment as well like everyone else said...

like i said i had to grind mine down a bit, but not too much, just a little, so it doesnt suprise me that urs fit perfectly bruno. Maybe it was just the rims i had.

My mistake, I meant "should not".

No clue where did the "not" go.
