I currently have the 17x8 acura tl wheels on w/ 225/40's, my fenders in the rear have been rolled and I like the look and stance, just wanted to go with a larger diameter and wider rim not really looking to do the hella flush look, I can deal with it sticking out a little but not to far as long as it doesn't interfere with turning radius, I can deal with the occasional rubbing, this is my DD and the roads out in West TX aren't the greatest. Are 18x9's to wide of a rim for this setup or should i look for and 18x8.5 size? I have seen some members rides on the coupe section that are running some 18x9's but can't really tell if they had fender work to accommodate that rim size.

Oh and Thanks Doctor X for the timely response!

Im not sure about the clearances with the coupe. I drive a slammed sedan with 17x9 +35 wheels and i tried fitting 225/45/17 and its a little too wide. I opted for the 215/45/17 instead and the clearance is perfect. I also have natural camber and fenders rolled all around. But the fender roll job isnt that great. I barely changed much in the back. The front is rolled pretty well though.

You can run 18x9s. Depends on how your car is set up though. I put 18x9 +35mm all around on and it was pretty flush but it poked just a tad.

Would a 19x8 +55 225/40r19 fit a 01 Accord sedan without rubbing? How about with people in the back? Going to drop but only want about a 1 finger gap front and back. Will be dropping on ground control/tokico whites.

I just mounted my brand new Hankook Ventus V2 Concepts 215/45/17 and they ride amazing stretched on my 17x9's. I dont do any racing, but they're super quiet which is why i bought them.

Im running stern st8 17x9.5 +30 all the way around with 235/45/17's. Fenders and qaurters have been rolled and flared too. And I can prolly still get away with a 5mm spacer and get rid of a little neg camber. I personally like more thread on the road. lol
