17" x 8.5" to run 45-55 series 245 R compounds. They should come in at sub 15 lbs each

Love these rims! Was looking at the Shine's as well but wanted a less aggressive look and something a little more professional looking since I drive clients around in my car.

After HFP Suspension: (it settled a bit more later, maybe a centimeter)


Before HFP Suspension:

OH CRAP THAT WAS A BIG IMAGE! Sorry for you low bandwidth folks.

^^^^^^^^^^^^^ (EDIT - Nov 11, 2008)
So I shrunk the image down and put a new one in that has the HFP suspension installed. This is right after the install so it probably settled a good centimeter more. Looks just the way I like it now.

The below picture is before the HFP suspension but some better angles of the rims. Thinking about getting 9.5 for the rear's next summer. I thnk all the staggered folks have got me sold on the look and it will look better under the well now that the tires are closer (less of a well overhang with wider tires).

Yeap... I dont need any extra unsprung weight being hauled around. I will use a little Higher aspect ratio tire as anything under a 45 is a waste of time for me.... I have a feeling the tires will be a 50/55. This will all be combined with a thread long body Konis so I will have much more ride height adjustment than what is currently avalible.

For late model Honda chassis, steel bodied 3011's you can expect to pay $550 per corner... For aluminum 2812LB's you cna expect to pay over $900 per corner. Those are pretty much standard prices and everyone who orders a set is paying that pricing.

Those are Kumho Ecsta SPT 245-40ZR19 and they stick like glue. I just went through a crazy downpoor near Calgary and they are excellent on water too.

Any rubbing issues? How wide are your rims in the rear?

No, same diameter as stocks (18 inch rims with 45 profile versus my new 19 inch with 40 profile), wider 8.5 inch rims though but no rubbing. Even if I drop it an inch I'll be fine.

I did not stagger as that is "rice" in my opinion on this car. Everyone knows a Honda is front wheel drive, so whats the point of staggered. I know guys who've done it and it looks okay, but the overall effect to me is not that pleasing (I know it serves no purpose). In fact, when I see staggered on a front wheel drive I think they're just trying to be like the 350z or the G35/37. If that's what you want go get one of those don't buy a Honda and pretend it's a Nissan....just my two bits.

The point of going with a staggered fitment is to make the car look more aggressive in its stance. What's so "rice" about that?

You talk about going for a professional look because you drive your clients around in your Honda... well everyone knows a Honda is for your average person/family and us "ricers" who want staggered fitments on our Honda FWD wanna-be 350z G35/37 Nissans. Really...if you want to impress your clients you should have gotten a Lexus or an Infiniti...not a Honda.

That was my point exactly, I couldn't have afforded the higher end luxury Jap's but the Coupe sure looks good. And your right, the staggered look is more aggressive, I was just throwing in my "personal" opinion that it offers no benefits. Okay, I knew "rice" would tick somebody off, a little harsh. It's not like it's a Ford Focus with staggered fitment, that would be nasty!! Things that make you say hmmmmm.

Oh and I forgot, I saw a Ridgeline the other day with a Staggered fitment, now that was odd. Didn't get too good of a look though.

The more '08 Accord coupes I see with aftermarket wheels, the more it amazes me how small anything other than 20's look on it! Here in So. Cali, I know its a matter of time before someone throws 21's or 22's on a coupe. Not that I think it would look nice at all. Plus the unsprung weight would be ridiculous.

By the way, not dissing your car at all, mattchatwin. Looks great and I'm actually thinking of those exact wheels in a 20 inch fitment, should Axis decide to make them in 20x8.5 and 20x10. Right now, the Penta only comes in a 20x9 and 20x10. Not sure the 20x9 will fit under the front fenders.

it's funny, the more IC 19"+ rims on the car the more horrified I am of the hard parker trend that seems to have taken hold.
