First , if you are reading this thank you very much for your time , I could really use some advice on my soon to be new wheels.

Info : 2004 TSX on H&R Sport Springs ( - 1.3 F -1.2 R ) on Koni Oranges .

Issue : I was looking for a simple conservative wheel set up , 18x8 - 45 .

However the wheels I want are on a 4 month back order in that size .

Question : Will 18x8.5 -35 fit on a 2004 tsx without

1. Fender work

2. A lot of camber

3. Poke ( tiny tiny amount is fine )


This is my daily , I do NOT WANT RUBBING. I never drive with passengers in my car if that matters .

I do not want a camber look.

Based on the above info , any feedback on how this size would work and what I would encounter would be great . Keep in mind the drop is only 1.3 .

Lastly , I was told a 235/35R18 tire would be ideal with this.... which seems like an odd size based on research, any feedback on tire size would be helpful as well.

To anyone that made it this far I am much appreciative,

Cheers.

That's going to rub fender liners for sure when you hit bumps. Likely will rub fender lips too. I'm on a 18x8 +55 with 25mm spacer so an effective +30 on a 235/45 tire and I had to roll fenders, tuck fender liners, relocate rear bumper fastener, and dial in camber just right. I'm alot lower than you though.

235/35 isn't enough sidewall. I'd look at a 235/40 or the ever common 225/40.

Perfect man thanks so much for the info !

That's what I assumed , but wanted to confirm as well.

You think I could get away with a

18x8 - 35 with a 235/40 tire ?

Aka .5 inches less then then first post ? Only dropped 1.3 inches.

Found out the company discontinued the 45 offsets so the above is my only option even with a 3 month wait .
