Hi All !

It is confirmed by my mechanic that the spacers and longer bolts needed when fitting Si 17" wheels on 2013 Accord Coupe. Rear wheels fit fine, but front ones touch the caliper!!

Does anybody here got into this issue and got the proper spacers and bolts for it? Should I buy from Honda?

Thank you in advance!

Honda doesn't sell spacers unless your dealership condones aftermarket parts.
Look into akata spacers and see what you need. You may only need 5mm or 10mm max to just clear your calipers.

Figure out the offset from stock accord wheels and the si wheels and that might give you the size you'll need?!

Another member has told me that all you need is 5mm spacers for the front wheels. The Si wheels upfront will rub with the brake calipers without the 5mm spacers.

I'm about to run the same setup this week. Waiting for my wheels to get painted and then mounting my Hankook ipikes on.

Guys, great, thank you very much for your responses.

Now, where can I get quality spacer, say in Toronto area? Should I get longer bolts as well?

I just noticed that you are doing this for a coupe.

What I said earlier was for a sedan. I am not sure if it's the same for coupes, as I been told I won't need longer bolts. I ordered mine from ebay and my spacers are akata. Make sure you get the right bore for your car. This is the one I ordered for my car:

Just wanted to update this thread for anyone else who wants to run stock 08 Si wheels on our cars. Current set up are Hankook iPikes 225/50/17 with front 5mm Akata spacers. No shakes or viberations.
