Axis Groove 20x8.5 (front) 20x10 (rear) lowered w/ Eibach springs. The rear fenders had to be rolled and stretched tires were used in the rear as well. Not sure on the offset. Looked on www.axiswheels.com and it listed any offset for these wheels. 245/35R20 (front) & 275/30R20 (rear). The Accord belongs to an Axis employee's friend.

i saw an accord with rims and i swear it looked like a 4x4 i didnt ask the guy what size rims they were but i figured they were 20's because i didnt think anyone would be so stupid to put 22's which is why im kinda eghh about 20's..

I did some more searching and the wheel offset on the black Accord with 20x10 rear Axis Grooves have a 40mm wheel offset. Also, don't let the red Accord fool you. It's a photoshop job. The wheels are supposedly 18s but on the www.ronjonwheels.com website the wheels are 18x8.0 with the 5x114.3 bolt pattern and either 32mm or 48mm wheel offset.

Yeah once you lower the Accord the wheels will look larger. I have a particular wheel in mind when I get my 08' V6 coupe. I'm not telling either. Yeahhh mannn!

20's do NOT look big on an 8th gen. That thing is pretty big itself and staggered wheels are the only way to go.

Well he doesnt have the HFP kit on that black one either i have the HFP body kit on mine so with the drop and the kit its gonna look a bit lower than him.. hmm im starting to drift from the 19's and lean to 20's but just one other thing besides ride height.. ride quality.. with 20's and a drop how bad will that suffer the tire profile is smaller than 19's and a drop..

JuztAJ,

Can't go wrong with either size...atleast you will have more choices in wheels between the two sizes.

slowaccord,

i totally agree... staggered is the way to go on the 8th gen. accord coupe unless you want to keep the sizes all around the same so that you can rotate your tires.

I hate four door's Accord but this on 22's look's very nice the only thing this car needs is to drop it about an 1" . But coupe's i think will look good on 20's.

8th gens a porker. its not no crx. It NEEDS big wheels just to look normal. 19" minimum. 20 preferred. heck the right 22" wont look too big either

The black one with the Axis rims is really nice. I just ordered a black on black accord v6 6-spd, so I have to wait atleast 4-6 weeks before it arrivs, but I decided on that one. I would go with the 20's and add the lowering springs. It looks real clean. I drive a 1998 Honda Accord v6 sedan atm, and I only put 18's on mine, because anything bigger looks ridiculous, but these new 8th Gen ones look great with big rims. Who knows. Which accord do you own now? Coupe or sedan?
