So I got a couple of really easy questions! Sorry if they sound dumb, I am not very knowledgable about the rims, tires, and suspension.

1. What size rims and tires do we run stock? (i.e. - like 205/35/15 or what ever all that means, if you could explain that would be great. I know 15 means the rim size but heck if I know what the earlier two mean.)

2. What size of rims and tires work well with lets say an Eibach pro-kit? ( I will probably put a body kit on eventually when the money is there. Like I love 18's because I think 17's look a little small for my tastes. Would there be any modifications to tuck 18's with the pro-kit drop?)

3. Where would the best place be to purchase rims, tires, springs, shocks? (Like the local discount tire, les scwhab, online, etc. If so could you name some websites to point me in the right direction.)

Thanks a million guys for answering and looking and my questions means a lot to me!

1. I think it ranges from 14-16 inch diameter depending on the wheel style and trim. for the numbers on the tire: (width in mm/aspect ratio/diameter in inches)

2. I have pro-kit and 17's, but 18's look a lot nicer in my opinion and give you some more ground clearance for body kits.

3. Um, definetly online, ebay is always a good resource just make sure that the item description is accurate. Also if you don't mind paying the retail price this is an excellent store site for everything 94-02 accord: http://www.secureleadercom.com/exstore/default.asp?goto=dynfrontpage.asp

Soelknight,

Go to the gallery sticky for some good pictures of our rides. I'm on 18x7" wheels and 215/35/18 tires. I'm also about 2.5" lower than stock with no rubbing. Nowadays you can get a nice set of 18's with 215 or 225 tires for about $1000-1200. Tirerack has a lot of wheels for our car and you can see what the wheel will look like on your car too. :D

the first number regarding tire sizes means the width of the tire. the higher the number, the wider the tire. the second number is in regards to the height of the sidewall, it is really a percentage of the width. so, lets take our stock tire size which is 205/60/15. 205 is the width in millimeters, 60 means the sidewall is 60 percent of the width [205], and 15 is the rim size.

i'm on 17's with a pro-kit and never rub. with 18's it might depend on your tire selection. 225/40/18 could possibly rub while 215/35/18 i highly doubt it. with 19's, you have to roll your fenders.

i bought my wheels and tires off ebay. i got a good deal, 600 for slightly curbed rims and tires with 90% tread. speedandstyle.com is also a good resource. i hope that covers it
