Is this possible. Someone just gave me some 16" wheels from an RSX Type S (2004 I think). I don't know all the specs about the size, just that they are 16". I have read on the forum concerns about clearance on the calipers but I couldn't find an answer. Will they fit on my 2005 Accord?

I attached a picture I found of the wheel.

Thanks.

Thanks estevesd87.

I just thought I would ask. It's a little cold out there to be disappointed. I searched on here but I guess not hard enough for that thread.

I believe specs are 16x6.5 +45 for 02-04 wheels (not sure if that's Type-S wheels or not)

They fit, but the caliper bracket clearance is less than 1mm. I have a set that I use in the winter, so I ground down the bracket to get ~2.5mm of clearance. I really like these wheels! I believe them to be the lightest OEM USDM Honda wheel in 16". Only the JDM S2000 wheels are lighter. The stock RSX tires (205/55r16) are definitely too small for the Accord, but when I put 205/60r16s (stock Accord size), they fill the wheel well really well.

I had 16" steelies with snows on my car last year and they cleared fine, so I don't see why not. IMO, after seein em on esteves, I think they look too small to make the car look good.

there's a SSM 05 around my campus with those wheels. I'll see if I can get a close up of them and see if they're riding on spaces or not. Doubt I can get very close.. the car continuously move parking spaces.

What's the tire size on those white ones?

What's the bracket to spoke clearance? Mine was 0.6mm...way to close.
My tire size are 205/55/16. Yea the clearance is very tight but I know it doesnt hit the front caliper bracket at all since I do not see a scratch on either on the rim or the caliper bracket. :D
