New 17's or 18's?!?! Which size?!

Hey guys whats up,
Ill finally be dumping my accord next weekend and im looking to get rims in the next few months to come. I pretty much know what rims I want im just stuck on size now. Im looking to get MB Weapons either 17x9 or 18x9 but what im stuck on is how they'll look on my 02 coupe.
So I guess what im asking is does anyone know anyone that might be running these exact rims on their accord? or have any pictures of 17x9 on their accord coupe? I know keychain has the battle 18's on his accord, super clean. But idk if the 17" weapons will give me that same clean flush look or if ill need the 18's..
I dont wanna have a dumped accord with rims that look too small and doesn't look right.

Thanks for any help like always. Its greatly appreciated

Don't waste your time with 17s then, you already know what the correct answer is so don't beat around the bush. Do it right the first time and don't have any regrets. You're not going to get 18s and say "oh man those are too big", but if you get 17s you may regret it since eventually you'll realize how small they look.

18's with a 40 sidewall really look perfect on an accord coupe

ive seen some 17's work, but usually not as effective as 18's

Good luck !

I think 18s look best on the CG chassis. Do it.

18s. Its easy for me to say because its not my wallet, but cash has to be the only reason youre considering the 17s. Wait the extra week or two and get the 18s.

Well the price difference from the 17s to 18s is only 15 bucks. I don't have 1 to 2 grand to drop on rims so I found these MB Weapons for only 155 each. I fell like thats a good price for the size and how they look. Im down.

225/40r18 all day

But 225/45r17 on a slammed coupe aint bad either, probably less tire rub.

It depends on the width, offset, tire size, if you're lowered, if you want to do fender work, etc...

19's means running 35 series tires i think, so it would be risky. I freak every time I hit a pot hole with my 40 series but no damage yet! But if your ballin you should do it, 19's on an 00 coupe would look sick.
