Anyone have TL-S wheels on an Accord yet?

I came across a decent deal on some TL- Type S wheels and am thinking about swapping them in for my stock 6 speed wheels. Still 17" but now 8" wide.

Has anyone done this yet? I don't think I'll run into any fit issues, but will the factory lugs still work.

Anyone have any thoughts on how it would look?

It would be gumetal wheels on a Black V6 Coupe.

I would be really, really appreciative if someone had a link or pic they could share. I just searched for every combination of TL, TL-S, or S type I could think of and had no luck!

Those do look sexy , but is there a "H" center cap that fits right with them? Nothing against Acura, but I at least "IMO" it is just a little wierd to have Acura logos on a Honda. Yes, I know they are the same company.

Check out ebay; you can almost always find a set that someone has removed from a brand new car. I'm not sure if dealerships still do it, but you might be able to see if they have had anyone sell their rims back to the dealer prior to removing their car from the lot... It happens a lot more than you might think, and you can usually get 20% off brand new wheels.

Is there a fitment issue with the TL 5 spoke wheels on the 7gen? I'm picking up a set this weekend. The guy has 235 in the rear and 215 up front. Any thoughts?

no problem. but seriously, be careful bro. correct me if i'm wrong, but the sizes (235 and 215) on tl wheels looks like the dude is trying to pretend he's staggered...either that or he is slammed more in the front than the rear be safe and get the same size tires all around. gl.

if you have 7thgen go with the aspec rims... cuz its bigger...

if you have 6thgen go with the tls rims... just look at mines...
i recomend:
7thgen with 225/45/17 or 235/45/17 tires
6thgen with 225/45/17 with little drop
6thgen with 215/45/17 if slammed (225 will rub like crazy slammed)...











these are older pictures with 224/45/17 tires (rub rub rub... more rub)

They look hot on that 6g, nice choice!

(and when I saw the thread I thought 'why can't the idiot OP search, this has been covered before... then I realized I was the OP... D'oh!)

If you are putting TL 5 spoke rims I have them on my 07 accord 6 speed. I have 235/45/17 on it and they fit very flush. They look really good sticking out of the wheel wells just about a quarter of an inch. But I would definitely put 235s on the front and back. Also it helps with traction alot.
