Ok what how wide can I go with the rim and wheel with out any rub or scrub and keeping the wheels flush. And I can't find any good short throws for the car I noticed this is no civic or Integra they are kinda rare in the mode department

short throw you can get the comptec engineering one or the cosmo. Its just a little metal adapter. If you want to go big there is a billet shifter assembly made by k tuned. Everything mod wise on this car cost an arm and leg.

it says TL, but its the same for the accord

not sure about the coupe spec for rims. There a thread with coupe and pix.

nothing cheap for the accord. Nitrous would net you the most bang for the buck.

J-pipe and pulley are also good.

Depends on how low you go. I had 19x8.5's on the car and had slight rubbing on Tien s tech springs. Now lowered on coilvers I have 17x9's and slightly rolled my fenders

Sorry for the thread jack. What about adjustable coilovers? Like a Tein street basis kit? I was thinking about that myself but sticking with 16's due to road conditions in my area. So I'm not worried about rub issues but that seems better for adjusting based on necessity instead of dropping a little less dough on a "permanent" drop kit. As far as a short throw, I got nothing I got a granny tranny.

I have lowered my car, added wheel spacers to improve the look of the stock 17" and just installed the ct short throw adapter. I also deleted the intake resonator, exhaust resonator and mid-muffler and added a k&n drop in filter. I recommend all the cheap/free mods I've done. My advice is to roll the fenders and get suspension that will eliminate the wheel gap. The offset of the wheels becomes very important at those widths for them to fit and look good. That is a good size with the right offset and suspension.

Yea I'm going to roll a little but what's a good offset to run for a clean flush stance to be lowered about 1.5 front and 1 in the rear

I'm going to do 18x9.5 +35. You won't be as low as me and don't want camber so idk exactly, something in the 40s I'd guess.

Hey man, there is tons of fitment information in the 7G Suspension section. There is even a thread specifically dedicated to it if I'm not mistaken. There are also numerous threads here pertaining to all sorts of modifications. Check it out

I'm running 18x9.5 38 offset rpf1 on general maxx 225/45/18 front rubs on fender liner some times. Going up sharp incline driveways gas station etc never while driving or making u turns or anything like that rear is full rolled and pulled a bit I could still put 15 mm spacer to fill gap with nearly no camber in the rear. My tein basics are almost maxxed out as low as they can go under side of car never scrapes and I live in mn
