I was running 18x8 +40 with 225/40 on sportlines and the wheels sit pretty flush.. Only thing is the sportlines gave it the boat look.

Are you kidding me? lol

Thats like standard wheel fiting that discount tire uses [I always see them put 17x7 and +38 - +45 offset on accords]

So it will fit

It'll fit.. But I think that's too skinny for an accord, no?

Its not too skinny but it wont be flush with the fenders because of the high offset.

I believe my HFPs are +55 offset because they were no where near my fitment with my Works which are closer to the fenders
