Can I Swap 19" Sport Wheels For 18" Coupe Wheels? Yes? I don't believe you Need proof

Hey Guys
I'm picking up my 2017 Sport MT next week.
I wanna swap my 19" rims & tires for the ones off the Coupe EX while they are new.
Everything i'm finding says the specs are the same, bolt pattern, offset etc etc...
The parts department says they wont fit because of brake size or somethin ( he wasn't entirely clear )

Whats the real scoop on this ?
I'm in Canada

There's negligible difference between the two tire sizes and I'm not aware of any brake assembly differences between the sedan and coupe models.

Where are you? I've thought about buying a set of the sport rims for my coupe.

They will fit. Check a thread posted here recently about a guy asking about an EX. He posted pictures of a dealership he visited. In one of them, it showed a Touring with those exact 18 inch wheels. They will fit. However, I think the stock 17 EX rims won't.

18" rims will fit just fine, no issues at all.

This is pretty much what I took from most of these posts when people wanted smaller for winter or softer ride.

I would go to the manager, the two wheels have the exact same offset (+55), which is the only thing to be concerned about with regard to brakes. But I'm pretty sure the brakes on the coupe are no different than the sedan. The touring ones might be, but if all you want are the EX coupe wheels, there's no reason other than it's something they don't usually do, or their system doesn't like it, or some other dumb excuse that you shouldn't be accommodated as a paying customer. Remind the manager of that fact. Dealerships like to think they know things we don't, but they mostly rely on people not pressing. If it's what you want, press brother.

Hell, I'd trade you my EX coupe 18s for your Sport 19s if the logistics wasn't a nightmare, lol.

Spoke to another service tech from a different dealer.
He was a little more willing to look into this for me ( wasnt in a rush )
What he told me was the brake calipers on the Sport and Touring are larger than the other models, and the 18" rims from the Coupe EX wont clear the Calipers, other than that they would fit.

I still wanna try putting them on to actually see if they clear, but finding a dealer willing is going to be a challenge.

Your question was answered a few posts ago... HAccord1496 said that they'll fit and has proof, what more do you want?

I get that your telling me they will fit.....i get that but have not yet seen any pics besides a korean market car with the 18's on there ( maybe the brakes are downsized ?)
I wanna believe and your probably right, but am i supposed to believe the first poster who simply says yes ? i dont know this person ( maybe the brakes are smaller on the car he saw as well ?)...is this person a GOD or something ? if he is i didnt know sorry, and i'm to believe everything he says ?....sorry i'm new and dont know accords yet...i had heard this was a good forum, i belong to several great boating forums and so far i'm not feeling it here....."what more do i want?" well proof for one...which i have none of..
Where would i be if i believed every post on every internet forum ?
Hope that didn't come across the wrong way, just gotta see it from a newbie perspective.

All i'm looking for is a little leverage with the dealer when i go pick up the car before signing, they said if they fit they would swap, with proof i will have it.
I guess i will have to force them to swap a tire but i dont wanna be a total (NICKNAME FOR A GUY NAMED RICHARD) about it...
Its that or sell used 19's after i buy replacements, would rather just be done with it at the dealer though.
I dont even care if the 19's are worth more $$$ i just wanna swap em straight out.

Ha ha ha, you come on to the forum and ask one of the most often asked/questions there is. People that own these cars and have swapped wheels gave you an answer. But you want MORE!

Have you read through the 100's of threads where your question was asked/answered?

Maybe you could get a written guarantee? Right on the box!

OP; I'm no master technician of any sort. However, I did post a picture of an Accord Touring with the exact 18 inch wheels you're asking about. An Accord Touring and Accord Sport are the only two trims which have the largest front rotor size(due to the 19 inch wheels that these trims come with).

Other threads mention what's the smallest size you can possibly go if you have the Sport or Touring trims.
