Looking at these 19x9.5 35 off wheels to go on my sedan. Was wondering if a 9.5 would fit fine on stock suspension, potential future lowering springs, and if so what size tire will give me a flush look or maybe a slight stretch.

So I tried to fit my 20x10.5 and everything looks ok with 245/35/20 tires but the gap is ridiculous. Looking at hight I think I could go with springs but not 100% sure . What do you think ? Would Coilovers be a better option?
Generally speaking, I wouldn't have aftermarket lowering springs on OEM struts as they're not valved in accordance to them. Best bet would to just opt for coilovers and camber kits if the coilovers you purchase don't have them though most always have camber adjustment on the top-hat of the struts.

As for me, I plan on buying OEM FD2 Civic Type R wheels (18x7.5). Although, I'm still curious as to what spacers I'll need for them. I'm looking into having a fitted look while still retaining a slight wheel gap.

Here's my new set up:
Work Lanvec LM1 19 x 8.5 +35 on 245 35 19 Hankook ventus v12 evo2.
I also installed 20mm H&R spacers in the rear so fenders were needed to be rolled.

Finally found a set of Evo IX MR wheels for $400. Had to drive 5hrs round trip to pick them up, but man it was worth it. Not as luxurious as @ some of you Cali guys with your WOP Accords in here, but happy with it thus far and the offset with the additional width gave me that more aggressive look unlike the stock ex-l wheels that are tucked under the fenders. Weather is wet here currently so can't really wash the car for good pictures. Will update once I can.

Wheel: OEM Evo IX BBS MR wheels (painted in black stainless steel since the original SE finish was ruined(n))
Wheel Size: 17x8
Offset: +38
Weight: ~17.7lbs
Tires: 235/50/17 Firestone Firehawk Indy 500 (Summer tires)

Took the heavy winter boots off and switched to summer sneakers. So much lighter than stock rims.

After way too much overthinking, I finally did it!

Enkei TSVs - Storm Grey
18x8 +45
235/45/18 Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3+

I was fixated on the TS10s for a really long time, both for the clean design and the +50 offset. More recently when I decided it was time to get off the fence and do this, I got convinced that +45 was totally fine. And lo and behold, Enkei released the TSV! It's a little more interesting to look at than the TS10s, so I rather impulsively jumped on them. So glad I did!

When it's time to say goodbye to the car I will probably put the saw blades back on and sell the Enkeis on their own.

Thanks for all your help, guys!

Update on how they drive. Well! Steering feels heavier, probably because the tires are much stickier. Getting more information through the wheel than before, and I definitely have traded a bit of smoothness away for better road feel. The dead zone in the middle of the steering is almost totally gone. The car just feels more solid and planted, with less lean. It no longer feels like I can get to its limits as easily.

Tomorrow is my first mega commute with the new setup. This is really what they're for. I'm actually excited for the schlep.

I'll get flamed, but the black-on-black doesn't do it for me.

Not my car but I'll chime in. I think black on black can work if you're really committed to making it work. When done really well it's stunning. But it requires like full commitment. If your tires start to get dull and lighter it hurts the look a lot. So spray on that tire shine!

i feel 19's with a 40 side wall and a slight drop MAYBE fit the car best. I have 20' vossens and it looks like a monster truck without coilovers

Those wheels look to wide for you to lower your car. They will rub on the fender unless you get them rolled.

After having my rims on for a little bit, I decided I wanted to go a bit lower. Went to coilovers and dropped her another inch. Need a wash and an alignment...wouldn't mind a BBK either...
