I think you would need to use a 5mm spacer with that and be limited to 245 wide tire or it may rub on the inside if you go wider.
Thats cutting it real close I should know I stuffed 255 wide tires on 16 x 8in with 60 offset using a 5/16ths spacer.

gona stick out like crazy. 8.0 isnt even flush, it sticks out. 235 is prob the lowest you wana go on 8.5 rim and 235 is almost the highest you want to go on the accord, i mean considering your dropped nicely and you want to keep it practical. BTW keep the rims, they look great with you car.

i'm pretty sure u can do it. i've got 19x8.5 with 50 offset wrapped in 235/35 in the front and 225 in the rear and lowered. no rubbing whatsoever... but that tire calculation is based on a 19" diameter.

as far as it sticking out and being flush, you shouldnt have a problem, but the high offest might cause a problem with it clearing the calipers.

+52s will most definately not fit with a BBK. i think you'll need 10mm spacers...and then run some camber...

I have Ronjon's Inspyre 18x7.5 +50 with 235/40-18 right now. I confirm, eveything is fine on stock suspension. I'll soon drop the car with Eibach 1.6"front and 1.2"rear and it should be ok...

18x8.5 will work.. esp with the +52 offset... but i dont know if your bbk will work with them. basically the higher the offset the more in the rim will sink into the car. running 8.5 width with +42 offset (if u get a 10mm spacer) then it might work, and the rim will be flush with the car. ure tire size will be limited tho.

wheel fitments differ among coupes/sedans so keep that in mind... coupes can run much more aggressive offsets in the front.

you'll need spacers for two reasons:
-the spokes are probably not designed to clear bbk
-they're gonna be tucking pretty bad.

If you're buying expensive JDM wheels... do it right, get an offset in the mid 40's for 8.5" width, 40-42 for that uber flush look.

Otherwise you'll need spacers and hubcentric rings. I think its better to modify your fender if it needs it and have an aggresive setup without spacers n sh!t rather than having to put spacers on and all that redneck ghetto sh!t, lol.
