Those tires are way to small and its a 19x7, so u at least wanna go 19x7.5. You put 19x7's on Civics. With +40 offset there is a good chance it will rub, but you never know. 235/35/19 is the correct tire size for a 7th gen Accord. 215/35/19 is smaller then the stock tire hieght.

This is what the guy told me.

With a 19x8.0 a +45mm is necessary to give it clearance under the fenders. With a 19x7.0 you can run a +40mm up to a +48mm without having rubbing problems.

Not really sure if he is right.

19 x 7 is a very narrow tire indeed. if i were you i would get 19*7.5 and use a 5-10 mm spacer to push it out if the offset is only 40 mm.

with the current 215/35/19 spec you are running you are going to be .3 inches shorter on each side of ur wheel well. total diameter 24.9", with 215/50/17s being 25.5.

btw what are you trying to achieve with such a large wheel?

Umm that guy does not know what he is talkin about. I had 19x8 Ace Allures with a +43 offset and no rubbing issues with 235/35/19 tires on a Neuspeed race drop(2inches). I am running 19x7.5 Enkei RS7's now with a 235/35/19 with a race drop again and i have no isssues again. 7th gen Accords have huge wheel wells.

ok heres a question.

215/50/17s is a 25.5 inch diameter.

235/35/19s is a 24.9 diameter.

so with the 19s your actually looking at smaller wheel overall.. So the only reason to get a larger rim would be to go low pro tires, not fill up the wheel well. right?



however you are wider now, so you are looking at the wheel possibly pushing into your struts and inner fenders. to compensate for that i PRESUME you increase your offsett to push your wheel out.

our cars are suppose to be able to support 20x 8.0 without rubbing and still capable of lowering it. i have 225/40/18 and i have no prob and i know from fact that there is no prob with 225/35/19

no doubt u will have NO problems at all. with the 7 in width....on 40 u will still have the stucked look.l i would get 19x7.5 with a +40....that will look more flush....8 in with +40 will work also, since my 8in with +45 wasnt that flush. all in all ur rims will fit fine with that drop. but im with everyone else get wider rims and thicker tires. dont trust wheel shops...most of them dont know crap. just double chck with us....there are more people on this board that know their stuff than those shady wheel shops...esp in socal where there is an import shop on every corner.

the prob of wheels shops is that they dont' "specialize" in accords 7th gen. I take no one seriously when it comes to shops cause everything they know is just "general" info for cars unless they own the car themselves or have worked on many of the same type.

7.0...c'mon, go atleast 7.5 or 8. 7.0 will just look dinky on your car.

No, I want to go with a nice wide/big rim/tire but, I wasn't understanding how this dood was explaining it. I was like, I want like a 45+ with a 8.5 in 20" But, I really was diggin the design on the 19" so I was wanting to double check. Seems its discontinued

I was looking at a TSW reflex btw

7" would be good if you were running say 17's, but for 19's you need something in the neighborhood of 8". having low pros that dont fill up the wheel well will look kinda funny. i had 205/40/17's and it didnt look that nice since it didnt fill up the wheel well, just something you should consider

Ok, new question I couldn't get a straight one after reading like 20 threads

I own a 05 6MT coupe. Is 42+ on an h-tech drop high enough to not rub?

19x7.5
5-114.3
42mm Positive offset

Also, would a 225/35/19 tire rub?

Yea man do not get 19x7 you need atleast 19x7.5 recommended 19x8. After you fix your camber in the rear you might rub. I didn't rub before, but now that i adjusted my camber I think ima have to roll my rear fenders. I have 19x8 Axis TC evo wraped around 235/35/19 Tires

Yea you wont rub with that, but I would recommend 235 Tires instead of 225. Accords don't hold up very well to skinny tires. I had 225 on my first set of 19s and the side walls tore up on me in less then a year. And if you have a car dropped get a camber kit fast b/c your tires will get smoked really fast.

ya, I was aiming more towards a 235 The recommened to me was 225, but I thought that might be a tad thin. I hate thin tires I was just really concerned with 235 rubbing issues being that I was getting a 42+ offset when ideally 45+ would be better.

thanks again for your input bro
