Is everyone's Accord like this?

I'm on 17" wheels with 235/40/17 tires and when I look at my car from the side, the rear wheel looks like it's offset to the rear of the car. What I mean is, the wheel isn't centered in the wheel well...it looks like it's pushed toward the rear of the car. Is this what everyone's looks like? I'm assuming this is due to lowering the car?

It just makes my car look unstable. Oh well as long as there's nothing wrong with the car.

Nothing is wrong with your car don't worry. Someone made a comment like this on Honda-Tech about Keith's car in the slammed thread. They were referring to the trailing arms as a possible reason, but who knows. Your car is fine.

Great...if only Enkei made TL-S wheels in 18" it may not look as bad. Thanks for the reassurance, guys.

I think only TL A-spec wheels come in 18". Not sure about the 09+ models though.

^^ '09 has no TL-S. Yes, A-Spec TL wheels are 18"...TSX A-Spec wheels are only 17".

I don't know how much lower I am than stock...I'd say 3-4 inches? Maybe more? I did the wheel/tire size calculations and the setup I have now is only SLIGHTLY larger in diameter than my stock setup...and I've got pretty much no gap in the front and maybe 1/2-1 finger gap in the back.

Here's the most recent picture I took of my car...

Thanks for the complements, guys!

toocooldg - they're the OEM foglights from Honda. They are made by Raybrig...or at least that's what it says on the foglight lens.

I don't know exactly how low I am measurement-wise, but they're fully adjustable so you can trial and error till you get it right. Mine rub a little bit in the back because I got bigger tires on the back.
