Depends on how high the water got up to determine if the motor, charger and/or inverter got damaged. All three have vents on them. The motor has a vent hose running up to the back of the inverter. The inverter and the charger have small round black vent plugs in the side of each unit about 3/4 of the way up the housing. The only thing that doesn't have obvious vent is the transaxle unit.

If so, you'd be creating a companion for O'Sparky of the Seattle EV Assoc. It's a '72 Honda N600 trucklet

Looking to put 4x 15x4's w/ 145/65r15s on a 00 insight

Cool! Let us know how they turn out. Sadly, the reverse didn't fit (I had two Gen1 Insights but am now 'pure' BEV), but the ultralight Honda spacesaver spare does fit the i-MiEV, with some issues...

Is it caliper interference issues with the 14''s?
They are 4x100 56.1 hub on the front correct?
I saw some post that rear rims have different hub?

Weight wise I'm in the dark couldn't find any info on the i-MiEV
I know my stocks are just over 11 lbs any idea on The 15x4's?

Yes, IIRC the front calipers of the i-MiEV interfered with the Honda Insight wheels.

Dunno about the front wheel dimensions you gave.

On the i-MiEV, the hub diameter of the front wheels is larger than the rear, to prevent putting the rear wheels on the front. It's just an oversized insert stuck onto the hub.

Dunno what the i-MiEV rim and wheel weights are.
