6th Gen can take up to 8 without rubbing the wheel well or murdering ur turning radius. 8.5 might be cutting a little close, but Do-Able. I use to have RH C5 18x8.5 and I didn't have any problems w/ turning or rubbing. I also would'nt go any less than a 40 sidewall, since you'll have no protection against potholes and whatnot. Personally, I would recommend 17's- (less clearance problems) or 18's-.
I think max you could get away with is 8.5" wide. At that width the max wheel size you could probably get away with is 18". It also depends on your offset so you might want a higher offset to accommodate your wider wheels and tires.
yea man, alot better of an offset would be 45. i have a +42 on my 17x7's with a 215/50 tire, and ill rub in the rear sometimes. with a +40 offset on 225's, i deff thinks any of us accord owners would rub, not even depending on tire size, the offset is a little too low. ive seen 6th gens with 40 offsets tho, and people have posted things about them. i remember this one guy posted pics and his tires actually stuck out of the fenders, like noticably. as for width, i dont think we could handle anything more then 8.5 wide, cuz whats that a 235, 245 tire? and people who put the TL rims on run a 235 tire and thats about max tire width for us.
how can u find out the offset? i dont understand that really well! i am gonna buy 18x8 and i am gonna drop it 2 inches! i hope it wont rubb.... and tires i will be getting, 225/40/18
is that good????
but offset i am confused!
hello all, first post here.
years ago i did the basic LED conversions all around the car. i am just recently making new mods and improvements and am considering upgrading my climate control indicator lights to LEDs. the only withdrawal i am having is that i’ve read soldering is required. has...
A little while ago i said i'd make this DIY so here i am... and still not done with all my pieces but very close ;)
Some of you may find my processes/materials a bit excessive but im just showing you how I did it, you can do it however you wish, using whatever you want.
