Official 20" Accord Wheel Thread :d

I looked through the board many times and find there is really no specific catagory for people who want to throw on some nice 20's. I find 19's and a couple 20's, but nothing concrete enough for the person in the market for some BIG wheels Since our car is wanting higher offsets, limited this, limited that, I figured why not start a thread for wheels on the market that WILL fit our ride. I have had enough trouble trying to find wheels for our cars, and figured I'd save some headache for the new people looking to see what's out there.

Ok, here we go

First off, we have a Madio GR5
Specs:
20x8.5 also in 8.0
offset is +44
colors (Chrome, Silver)
(the only member I know is Sick6Speed [drew] who has these monsters

Here is the rims on his ride


Next up, we have Sporza Estrada
Specs:
20x8.5
offset +45
colors (Chrome, Black, Silver)

Chrome

Black


Next, Sporza Esquire
Specs:
20x8.5 or 8.0 or 7.5 (Wheels are custom made)
offset +45 or (any specified)
colors Chrome only.


Next, ACE Allure
Specs:
20x8.5
offset +43 (not sure)
colors Chrome, Silver.


Next, Zenetti Five
Specs:
20x8.5
offset (unknown, but site says it will fit)
colors Chrome, Black.





That's all I can think of now

The Sporza Esquire and the Zinetti Five are my favorites...
Man, those wheels are BIIIG! I'd like to see more 7th Gens with 20's.
They look real good with that size wheel, even though it kills some of the driveability.

Just curious, but what's the reasoning behind getting 20"s on our Accords? Call me a wus, but wouldnt 20s be extreamly impracticle and prone to damage by road imperfections? I recently bought 19x8.0s for my 04 six speed coupe with 235/35-19 Toyo's and damn they are impracticle in my opinion. I LOVE the look and handling gains, but i'm finding myself swerving pretty aggresivly to avoid potholes.

With 20"s, you'd probably be limited to a 225/35-20 tire, which is pretty much too narrow for optimal performance, and probably too thin for a 8.5" wheel. Not only would you be hurting performance in terms of braking, acceleration, and handling, but you'd have to be damn careful with bumps.

I guess it's cool though to be able to tell everyone that you got DUBS though, but that's about the only advantage i'd see.

Maybe i'm getting too old...

It all depends where you live. But then again, if you ask people like sick6speed (drew) he'll tell you differently. Its true you do have to watch the road a bit more, but if you get a decent wheel, they are pretty strong. As long as you don't hit a realllllly bad pothole. The Maido wheels I think are 3-piece and very strong.

Also, as for looks, 20s look MUCH better on the newer accords. I tried putting on 18s, 19s and they just were too small looking. With my older accord "01" I'd say 20's are a joke, but the newer wheel wells are huge.

Good points you made there...i live in Boston, which has some of the ****tiest roads on this plant, especially after our long winters. I guess this isnt nearly as much of an issue as it is for Californians.

What about the handling aspects of 20s? You're pretty much restricted to a 225 width tire i beleive?

you know, I was talking to the guy who is getting my esquires made and he claimed we could fit a 235/35/20 on it. (i think that's the tire size). He also did mention a 225 would fit fine, (but was egging him on to the 235 ) I'll find out more in the next week or so. It's going to take 4 weeks to make the wheels to my specs. So, I'm going to find out what I can do to achieve a 235 fit.

235/35/20 is too big overall diameter. 235/35/19 is the perfect size for 19's so it would most likely have to be 235/30/20 for 20's.

Yea i have to say that having 20" makes it a lil harder to drive on Houston roads, but hey when u see people turn their head looking at your car. That makes it all up. I really donít drive on my hre anymore. The hre are mostly for shows. For the people who are thinking of getting 18". Donít do it just go ahead and get 19. I had 18 " on my car and it was just too small for me.

Here when i was on 18" Racing Hart C5



Now on DUBS

Nice choice in rims! The workmanship on custom rims whether they're 20's or not is completely different from off the shelf rims. HRE's are definitely top notch. Got any full side shots?

I Have a question to the honda family ............
Does this apply to 7 Gens only? For example can I put 20x 7.5 or 20x8.0 on the 6 Gen without getting any rub? Is this safe to say if I use the nitto 225-35-20 i should be o-kay. I'm not really into performance anyway I really like looks more.

haha- if u had a g wagon id say get a sick set of floaters/antispinners/whateverthe****youwannacallthem rims where the "spinning" section is weighted down and doesnt move at all. with a flat background it looks like your rims arent moving at all on the highway. its a mad headtrip when one drives past you and it looks like the car is standing completely still floating on air. looks hot as **** on a truck but not for a honda

This thread does not apply to the 6th gens. However, I think you can get away with a 7.5 or 8.0 but you might rub if the offset is too low. ie: +40 +38 +42 etc.. but the catch is get a 235 on a 19 wheel. Not only will you get style, but it'll fill up the wheel well and the tire would be awesome. 225 on 6thgen is

Hey thanks,
I thought that 225 was good, do the 235 do a better job for traction or something? I only ask because this rim shop near me in (Chicago) has a new shippment of rims for 2005 and the rim is 20x7.5 and the offset is 45. sounded too good to be true. I just found out through the honda family that I could have been sittin on 19s instead of 18s all this time. However my heart has been set on 20s for the longest and even though its only one more inch over getting some19s I gotta have them in 20s. I could not find this rim on superbuytire.com but I will take pics and get the name once I go back to that rim shop.

What's wrong with a 225 on a 20x8? thats what I'm running on my 6Gen Accord. even though I have air ride, as long as I'm not riding all the way down it doesn't rub(not even when I turn). before I had the air ride on there I could lock the steering wheel down and still no rubbing. Another thing, if you want a 235 for "traction" purposes, you don't need a 20. a 20 will slow you down quite a bit. If you're going for performance go with a smaller and lighter rim!
