I'd say you are okay depending on how low you go. +46 is not that bad.

use this calculator to figure out differences in rim to fender layout as well as inner well clearance.

Thanks man, according to that calculator those wheels will be 10 mm inwards and 28 mm outward.

about 1.4 inches wider than my stock 16x6.5 inch wheels.

Should sit pretty nicely???

they will fit fine..I have 18x9 in the front and mine sit flush. You should go 225/45/18 if you consider lowering your car more

225's are what I plan on running just to be on the safe side.

What offset are you running? have any pics of your car?

+46 is toooo high of an offset. it will look too sunk in. 18x8 with something in the +30's offset will make it look oem. something in the +20's with make it alittle more flush.

225/45/18 should be fine. i would personally run a 225/40/18

i had a 07 accord n was a huge ***** n tried all types of setups

i currently have an 08 tsx and 05 accord wagon and im a huge wheel ***** n have also tried out all types of wheels. deff had my share of 17/18/19/20 inch rims in all different widths and offsets

+30's offset make it look oem?? It has 6.5 inch wide wheels with a +55 offset stock. I already did the calculator and it says it'll be 28 mm further out than the stock wheels

exactly... you got it. 8" is going to be good.

if you want a real trick set up... run 9-9.5 f and 8 r

yea that set up is perfect although I would do 225/40/18. but it depends on how low your car is. +46 is pretty moderate which is fine. Mine is 18x9 +37 and its flush. I rub a little bit but my car is also dropped as low as it can go on tein ss.
