For '01 Accord LX Coupe

Wheels : Rota Subzero 16x7.5

Offset : +40mm

What size of tires do I need? and will I need the spacer?

He's not considering a drop.

if you are gonna go with low profile tires. the car is gonna look really ugly since the rim is only 16" in diameter.

tire size of 215/55-16" would suffice or 205/55-16

offset seems ok~


but in all honesty, i would not put those rims but rather save up money for 18" rims~ but good luck~

i agree-if your upgrading your wheels, why go with just 1" bigger? i agree-id go with 18's with a 1" drop at least-trust me-the car wont look right with just 16's or even 18's-a drop would compliment it nicely-

What about 17" rims w/ a 1-1.2" drop?

I guess 17" would be enough.

Isn't 18" way to big for accord coupe(4-cycle)?
no way-18's would look nice-i have 18's on my 95 coupe with a 1.7" drop in the rear and a 1.8" drop in the front-i love the look of it-i have no rubbing problems either-everything has very adequate clearance. 17's would definately look better than 16's imo-the car would look even better with that 1.2" drop after its all said and done-

well this person did say they aren't considering a drop.. if he doesn't wanna drop it 16 is as big as he should go.. i have 17's and they would look terrible without a drop...

i hate my goodyear tires, they stink, i always have to put air in them. nice sig culmination, i've never seen a modified infiniti g35 before around here, i guess there are a lot of modded ones out there in CA.
