I think they look pretty good! I'm running 255/45-18's with stock wheel gap. Hit a pretty big pothole today with sharp edges at about 45 mph - was glad I wasn't running 19 or 20" with low profile tires... YMMV
What MD said. Personal preference and perception. I like the looks of larger wheels and lower profile tires but I definitely don't prefer wheels that stick out more than the tire sidewall and these days, I'm more about function (specifically for my needs/wants/tastes) than looks (which is also subjective - how big is too big, how low is too low, how much gap is too much gap, etc). Do a little research on pros/cons of your choices and then make it your own!Thanks for the reply. I am wondering the difference between the ride from 18" to 19" to 20" wheels. I know the bigger wheel (less tire) you get less quality, but does a 20" wheel ride like crap? Is it worth the good looks?
Which 19" Honda wheels do you want? College Hills Honda has the Glint Black ones for $376/each, the chrome ones for $421/each, and the fancy ones with the inserts for about $450/each (including inserts). That's significantly cheaper than the $2700 your local dealer wants...Hey guys, I just got a new (white) Honda Accord hybrid, it looks 95% the same as a sport. (except wheels and exhaust and maybe some minor stuff) Honda wants $2,700+ for their cool looking 19" wheels without tires!!! I was like no thanks!!
I was looking at these Momo Quantum wheels that look pretty cool and wondering how they would look on my car. Problem is they are only available in 18" max size in black, which is what I want, but in matt anthracite they seem to have 19" and 20". I couldnt find a picture of them on a Honda, so heres a pic on a lexus View attachment 524223 I noticed it's available in 19" and 20" What do you think about the wheels? View attachment 524222
Hey guys, I appreciate your help for sure! I ordered a set of 19x8 Type R wheels (replica wheel) but hey they were $695 for all 4. I found a picture of a 10th gen Accord that had a similar wheel and carried the red stripe over to the car to match the wheels. I think it looks super cool. I may try to do the same to my car, but mine is white!Which 19" Honda wheels do you want?

Yes, Honda charges a premium for most of their accessory wheels- especially 19" ones. If you browse around, you can find cheaper Honda OEM wheels in smaller sizes for less money. There are a few optional wheels designed for the Civic that are decent looking and are available online for like $250/each.Honda is smoking crack with the prices of their wheels!! Even at the better price you found they are still $1,800 for just the wheels.
I think I follow. So the TSW Chicane wheels will stick out 10mm further than the stock wheels, but that extra 10mm wont cause them to stick out past the body work because the stock rims aren't flush to begin with?The higher the + number the more its under your fender. As the number gets lower it scoots out. So a +40 ET will move your wheel outward 10mm but it will still be in your wheel well. Getting a 10mm spacer will make your +40 offset a +30, which will be 20mm further out and more than likely make your rim flush with the wheel well. I hope this helps. So getting a 19x8.5 +40ET will work for your car and frankly if you didnt know anything about wheels would still look normal. Oh thats what i run as well, let me add that.
I'm a bit confused because I didn't think the stock wheels sat 50mm inside the fender. I was thinking the 50mm offset was from the center of the wheel (looking from the front or back of the car), to where the lugnuts mounted. I'll have to take a closer look at the stock wheels once I pick it up from the detail shop tomorrow (window/PPF/ceramic).Yes and NO... The TSW will stick out further than your stock wheels, but if you use a spacer with those TSW wheels it will stick out even further by that extra 10mm
I think I got it now. I'll have to check to see how flush the stock wheels are since the new set will push out 10mm further (assuming they take the measurement from the same spot).Noooooo. Ok you are correct in the definition in retrospect to your stock wheel. 50ET is where the center of your wheel is going toward the back of the rim. As your ET gets lower the center of your wheel is closer to the back of the wheel. So the closer the center of your wheel is to the back, when you mount it it will stick out further, because it doesnt have far to go to mount. The higher your number is. It goes in further to mount it, which is why it sits inside your fender well. Also let me state that i use the back of the rim because some rims have lips, and some dont.
wow....thats a perfect photoshop!!! Looks like the real wheel is actually on your carI'm a new 10th gen owner, purchased the touring and want to change the wheels, but I have never done that on any car before. Hopefully someone here can help me with offset.
From this post I've gathered that the stock 19" wheels have 50mm offset.
The wheels I'm looking to get are the TSW Chicane They come in a 19x8.5 size, compatible bolt pattern, and load rating looks fine. However the most offset they come in is 40mm for the size I would need.
Would I just need a 10mm spacer to make up the difference? or do I have that wrong?
Here is a quick photoshop of the Chicane wheels on my car.
Any help is appreciated.
