I was wondering what offset would be best for my purchase. I plan on lowering the car about an inch or inch and a half if any. I want a set of 19's that wont rub, so any help. Thanks :D

your going to be really close even with some rubber bands on those things, i would just put them on before you drop it and see how it looks.
i have 18 / 8.5 and i think i can only drop my car about and inch.

yea i saw a guy at the honda dealer with 20's and it just look like he was getting ready to go 4X4 in some mud or something, and also had really larg tires on it to so i know is gearing was all off. 18's are fine for me

There's a bit more room in the 7th gen than there was 6th. I know several people running 235/35/19, an even a few more with 20s. If you go 19x7.5 +42mm offset and slap on some 225/35/19 you's definately be good to go. 19s or 20s will slow you down significantly though so be prepared. On another forum many members say you can squeeze a 8" wide rim with 42mm offset, and 8.5" rim with +47mm offset

Here's 20s
http://www.cardomain.com/id/rupesh
http://www.cardomain.com/id/bonez05 looks ghey if you ask me
http://www.cardomain.com/memberpage/366720 looks pretty nice on a sedan
http://www.cardomain.com/id/g_smooth15 another coupe, not to keen on the look

20x8.5" with +47mm offset



Most people have said 19x7.5 +42 with 225/35/19 is the way to go, no chance of rubbing, plus you get a little sidewall sticking out to protect the rim. Also most people with 19s or 20s say while the look is nice, the performance hit sucks and if you are out for performance go no bigger than a lightweight 18 like a TE37 or something super light. I just put 225/40/18 on 18x7.5" Rota Subzeros on the rex(today) and I can REALLLY feel the down lown performance loss, but it looks good so screw it :p I'll probably order some yok A032Rs to slap on the stock wheels for track days :D

Well performance doesn't matter much. This is my girls car, and 20's are out of the question. I think 19's look so nice. My friend has 19's on his Audi and they look pretty good, I just dont want to rub at all!!

Here is the car, and I am thinking a black or hyperblack wheel with polished lip. The black rims on the sedan in the post look nice!!





I like these Piaa's but I think they are way to wide!! I want a nice lip...those ones up in the other post are sick!

As long as you go 225 width with +42 offset you'll be fine. 235+ is hit and miss and depends on the tire. I haven't heard of a single problem with 225/35/19 though, I'll see if I can dig up some folks with 19s.

Black with polished lip looks great. Even gunmetal looks hot. I had gunmetal on my accord and I thought they looked pretty good. I went with royal black subzeros with polished lip on the rex and they look great. They'll look even better when I get the wilwood 4 pot calipers under them :D





here's some
These are motegei FF7 19x7.5 with 235/35/19 nitto 555s on neuspeed race springs




these are 18s and looks a little small(that's an accord in thailand, a member of another board)


19x8 axis with 235/35/19 look at the lip on these suckers http://www.cardomain.com/memberpage/397279
