I don't have a horse in this race, meaning that I live in central California and we don't deal with extremely cold and snowy winters here, but I own a 2019 Accord Sport and I do find wheel changing interesting. A good reason to go for smaller aftermarket wheels would be weight as those wheels tend to be lighter than stock wheels of the same size. Sure having to consider hub centric rings and corresponding lug nuts is something extra to deal with, but in my opinion I don't feel like it's too much more to deal with. To each their own on that I suppose. As for older generation Accord 17" wheels, my concern has been with the offset since they're usually +55. As Senser posted in a different thread after switching to 2013 Accord wheels of there being "less aerodynamic efficiency", makes me think with the wheels recessed in seems to have more of a drawback besides looks.Yeah, I think the stock offset for the Sport 19" wheels is +50. I found the specs here: https://www.driveaccord.net/threads/specs-for-wheels-tires-brakes-check-here-first.540351/
I went with 7.5" wide wheels with a +55 offset. I think the wheels are the ones from the 8th Gen Accord V6 Sedan. I didn't want to go all the way down to 7" since the OEM wheels are already pretty wide at 8.5", and the 10th Gen EX/LX wheels are also 7.5". I think an offset anywhere between +40 and +55 should work. The aftermarket wheels offered on Tirerack are usually between +40 to +45. In my case, a lower offset probably would have been nicer, but I wanted to go with an OEM style Honda/Acura wheel so I wouldn't have to worry about hub centering rings and different lugnut styles.

Don't get me wrong, I do also like the idea of sticking with Honda wheels as I do see a benefit from not having to worry about hub centric rings as well as being able to use your existing lug nuts... And in going with that train of thought, I'm surprised hardly anyone (at least that I've seen) has considered just how good of a fit 3rd Gen Acura TL wheels are for our 10th Gen Accords. The '04 to '08 TL 17" wheels are 17x8 +45 offset. To me that should be good for both handling, comfortable ride and looks with regarding not recessing in the wheel well like older Accord wheels. Of course looks as far as wheel style are subjective and left to personal taste at that point. There were 3 styles of 3rd Gen TL wheels and so you would have a choice. I see old TL wheels for sale in local Craiglist or other marketplace posts, so they're somewhat easy to get. Forum member JusDina posted a pic of his Accord Sport with '04-'06 TL wheels in a different thread:Here's an update!
Just mounted some Blizzak WS80's at 215/55/R17 which in actual measurements were .18" smaller than the OE sport wheels and tires, I had scraped my front bumper coming out of the parking lot earlier right after the install
Discount Tire in my area had the best pricing on these excellent winter tires and I got the used 2013 Accord EX-L wheels for a great price from some local classifieds.
They clear the brake calipers and suspension just fine, except the wheels are definitely not as flush with the body as the sport wheels were. They do weigh significantly lighter than the sport wheels and tires, but the rolling resistance and less aerodynamic efficiency leaves me to guess that the mileage I'll get will probably be about the same.
Hahah I actually did the opposite! I went from an '07 Camry to a 2018 Accord.
