Help - Sedan: 17x8 +35 17x9 +35

I saw a set of rims i am interested in getting.
I am thinkin of going from my 18in to 17s

the size of the rims are
17x8 +35 17x9 +35
seeing what other people are running on this site.
its an aggressive but seems like it would work. at least for a coupe for sure.

i wonder what is the most aggressive offset people have ran for the sedan

I have rolled my fenders and i have a rear camber kit to adjust...i do not wish to run much negative camber tho.

what tires should i run with this setup
Should i go
215/50/17 front
225/45/17 rear
or
225/45/17 all around?

You'll be fine. 215/45/17 and 225/45/17 is okay too.

They will fit. I'm running 17x9 +35 all around with 215/45/17 tires. I am also running -3 camber all around.

Yeah those would def fit. I would have to agree with Steve and get 215/45 F & 225/45 R cause that's exactly what I ran before.

So you didn't decide to buy those other Works wheels you showed me before? Or are those the specs?

I think you should try and fit 18x10's all around. No one has tried it yet on a 6th gen I don't think.

does anyone know if the 2007 RDX wheels (18" x 7.5") will fit 6th gen? Specifically the five spoke alloy. I was thinking about putting them on my sedan, and will it look good?

Yes the RDX wheels would fit. Personally, I think they only look good on certain cars. I've seen them on an 8th gen civic si and they look ok. You need to be dumped inorder for them to look good.

Not if you want to follow the stupid trend of stretching tires.

How much negative camber is too much? If you dont want to run negative camber then I wouldnt suggest going aggressive.

I think Yogi's Accord might have been one of the most aggressive setups yet on a Accord.

IMHO, thers no point in getting low offset if you're only running a 7.5" tire. Low offset and wide tires are the way.
