Offset question

Hello everyone, I am leaning towards buying a certain set of rims. And I know nothing about offset. I asked a couple friends but it's hard to comprehend. I want to know if 18x8 +5 and 18x9 +6 will fit on a 2007 Honda Accord coupe? Will I need spacers? Explanations and input are welcome. Thanks

I think it's too low an offset, stock is +55. Does the 18x9 come in other offsets? Something higher like around +30ish? You have a lot of options it just depends what look you want and how much work you want to do.

Stock is +55 but 6.5~ wide. so in mm each half of the wheel is 82.55mm. Positive offset means theres less sticking out on the outside of the wheel centerline than the inside, so 82.55-55=27.55 outside the wheel hub, 137.55 inside of it.(not adding for the lip that actually holds the tire)

half of a 9" rim is 228.6. So your starting numbers are 114.3mm inside and outside of the hub. A +5 offset puts you at 99.3mm outside the hub, and 119.3 inside the hub.


Inside the hub, you're clear. But the rim would be sitting about 3" further out than the stock ones.
That's a mighty big fender roll.

Doable? sure. but you would need to cut your fenders, and either use some massive bolt on flares, get some fabbed, or leave the fenders cut as high as the wheel can go. If you've always needed a reason to put on some wide body style fender flares, go for it. If not, i'd change which wheels you're looking at. too far negative you can use spacers, too far positive means body mods.

depends on tire size will determine whether you need a roll and some camber, or some flares. Don't do it.

x8 is too skinny for fender work.

Thanks everyone for the input. And thank you oraclem19 for the detail explanation. I didn't quite get it but the ending made sense lol. I ended up finding another set which has 18x8 +31 and 18x8 +49

Stagger FWD front wheels all day. Just be prepared for the oversteer kick out.

I will say, in his defense, you are in fact prepared to replace fronts all day.

I mean for daily life you would be better off getting the same specs front and back for rotating. Nothing wrong with it if you want it tho just be ready to replace the fronts a lot lol
