Hi all,

Pretty new here and uhh... I just installed a new set of wheels and tires to my accord coupe 2011 but in a result of too poke.

My wheels are 19x9.5 +15 offset and the tires are 245/40/19.
Is there any way i can lessen the poke or close to flush. I believe even cambering it will look funny.

Perhaps changing the stock rotor brakes with a thinner hub. if there's such thing... I'm not much of a car person but I like my accord and I envy the others who have an awesome build. I guess i just started entering this kind of world, so complicated.

Please see the images below.

I have the eibach springs, I'll install it soon :(

Idk my friend, wheels look good. But that's just to much poking out. I was gonna go 19x9.5 with 245/40/19. And seeing that guess I'll have to go a smaller wheel width route. Are those mrr gf7?

If you YouTube mrr gf7 there's an accord with those specs and it looks really good.

The only easy answer here is camber and lower so that low of an offset. Definitely need to roll front and rear fenders, maybe even a pull as well. Also may need to do some modification to the wheel well in front.

9.5" +15 offset is pretty damn aggressive at least on an accord. I'd imagine a drop/camber and some fender massaging will help but I still think you will poking out a bit. Good luck.

Damm you went with+15 in the front. Bad move my friend. I am on 8.5 +38 in the front it fit perfect.
You will have to run a lot of camber or change your wheels for a different offset in the front. The lower the offset the more the wheel will come out and add that to a wider rim and even more is coming out. Try to exchange the front wheels is your best bet. The rear you can manage to make it look good but you will need roll and pull to make it almost flush

Excellent choice of rims btw I like them a lot.

Yeh, the rear is poking out about slightly over an inch and half. the front is slightly over 2 inches. For sure ill have it exchange but Im gonna exchange all of it.

May I see you whats the +38 offset looks like on urs? Not sure whats a good offset for the rear. Perhaps I should just go 8.5 for all tirea

Unfortunately I broke a rim and took them out but go staggered like 8.5 front and 9.5 rear but a higher offset between 38 and 45 should be fine and in the rear I will say between 35 to 42 so it could be flush. Good luck I hope I could have help u

These are 20x8.5 +42 offset. Perfect fit front and rear. no poke, no fender roll. even with the lowered Tein coils.
Those looks good, specially the front. That's a 9th gen right? Would the sizing be the same as 2011? If so, maybe I can use yours as a reference and re-measure my offset. The tires looks nice too, is that 35 series? 235/245?

Im tempted to stagger it but then I wouldn't be able to do tire rotation...? Ill see what will be best within 38-45 :) thanks!

yeah its a 9th gen, but I also had a 2012 accord and "i think" the fitments on 8th gens are very similar if not easier on fitment. As in you could get away with +35 or +38 offset easy. You will find that there are alot more options in +35 offsets. The tires on mine are 245/35/20. 235's would be ok too, just a little more stretch. I used the tire size calculator on wheel-size.com. That will get you in the ballpark. Just type in your stock size and play around with different sizes. I contemplated staggard too,but like you said No rotation.

Hey Markie,

I like the starting point. In your case, with those wheels, you'll end with a somewhat aggresive stance. In order to fit right, you are going to have to roll your fenders, drop on coilovers and get a camber kit. That's my opinion. I like to typically start with the suspension first then work on the wheels, that way I have more of an idea of what size, width and offset I will be going with. I hope this helps. Here are a couple good sites for referrence.

With the right tools and knowledge and maybe a lil dreaming too, you can pretty much make any wheel and tire combo fit, within means...

have to get a higher offset if you want not poke anything in high 30s+
you would have to drop , camber and pull (maybe even flare) fenders. I got 19x9.5 F + 29 slight poke.

There's really not much you can do at this point other than getting different wheels. You can get a smaller tire and that may help the illusion of it not looking as wide. Fender pulling/rolling is another option. I wouldn't waste your time trying to get smaller brake rotors. See if you could trade your wheels to someone for a different size. Higher offset in particular is what you'll need
