Hmm...what do you have in mind? There are multiple sizes that could all work fine, it just depends on personal preferences...some people want the lowest-profile possible, some want the widest tread possible, some want something average.

For the 7" wide width, something between 205, 215, and 225 will work depending on your preferences.

For the 8" width, something between 215, 225, and 235 will work depending on your preferences.

For the 9" width, something between 225, 235, and 245 will work depending on your preferences.

Keep in mind, the 235 and 245 widths may cause rubbing problems since you have a 98-02 accord. For the profiles, something between 35, 40, 45, and 50 will work depending on your preferences again.

Vague questions get vague answers, so please provide more info and we can all give you better information to suit your needs.

Probably, but there's always the option to use spacers and/or extended studs.

Well, you could try some 235/35s or 235/40s but we couldn't guarantee you wouldn't rub. It's been done before, but not with the offsets you're interested in. I'm assuming you're lowered with coilovers?
