Hi im looking for rims to my euro accord and im having problems whith rims, there just aren't any for this car.

I have found some that i like but when i talked to the distributor he said that i wont be able to use them cause the offset is to low. Original offset is 60 and the one's i've looked at is 45.


18*7,5 Et 45
ROTA WISHBONE



I's he right or can i use them?
The car is 50mm lower than original.

That should be OK. Original rim size for a US Spec Acura TSX is 17x7" +55 offset. There are many who are running 18x7.5 w/ a +45 offset or lower.

If you stick with a 225-40-18 tire, you should be fine even with a 50mm lowering. You can also go with 215-45-18 if you really want to be safe.

I have G-games 77W's that are 18x7.5 with a 42mm offset. Everything sits nearly flush with the fender, on the inside and dosent stick out. So, with a +45 offset, you should expect the wheel just inside the fender.

Should be a perfect fit. :thumbsup:

Ok, the dealer said that he testet a rim with 42 in offset and that wasn't even close to working. I'll have to call him again.

Thanks

Screw the dealers man. Take it from people who have these setups on their car for reference. I am going to be putting on 18x7.5s w/ +40 offset this weekend, so I'll let you know how they fit.

I already know that someone has 18x8s w/ +40 offset and a killer drop and he only rubs on harsh turns.

hmm.... stock offset is 50 or 5X, can't really remember, but 45 will fit for sure if the rim width is only 7.5"

*** I DO NOT HAVE MY CAR LOWERED***
My TE37 is 7.5" wide with +40 offset, no rubbing
My CE28N is 7.5" wide with +43 offset, no rubbing

+45 is pretty ideal I would say. (well, at least for me)
