I am new to this site. I own a 2001 2-door Accord V6 Coupe and would like to upgrade the stock tires to 17s.

My question is two-fold: a. What is the recommended size (is it 215 50R 17 or 225 50R 17) b. What do you think of Mille Miglia (Action) wheels?

Thanks in advance for your input.

Thanks lazybum but I can only afford 17s and besides, I think the size is just right. When all is said and done, the car should look like a poor man's 3.2 CL Type S.

I am going to buy all-season tires (live in a condo, don't have the space to own 2 sets of tires).

The best tires (size wise) are 215/50R17 but not too many choices are available! The best tires (availability and price wise) are 225/45R17! :D
Or if you want to look at it from a performance stand point get 215/50R17 for higher speed or 225/45R17 for better acceleration. But both will have a lower top speed over stock, 205/65R15.

You can get a Sumitomo HTR+ , Dunlop Sport A2, Firehawk GTA, or Yok Avid T4 in 215/50-17, all for 110 or less per tire. But bachviet is right about having more options if you go 225/45. Pinoy is right, too, about staying with a little narrower tire for max top end. It will also be a little less prone to trollying (tracking in truck ruts).

On the rims, the look is a personal choice (but I think the Actions look very nice on a coupe). I have a set of Mille Miglia Evos and I can tell you that their quality seems to be first rate. The finish holds up nicely and they have taken several seriously nasty pot-holes with no bends (knock on wood.) Only thing I don't know about is weight.
