There's a tire size calculator in the refence section.
If I'm right I'd think 55 series? But I'm not sure.

Post a picture, and what color / model is your Accord. 2/4 Door?

Hm those are nice.

How much do they weigh?

Personally I like 17's, but everyone else on this board will probably say 16's for performance/weight reduction/centrifugal mass etc..

Its an accord. For heavier cars i say go with a 17. On my project Daytona, it tips the scale at ~3k and i'm going 17's b/c its a heavier car.

Can you post a link to the cost of those wheels? Also the weight of them.

Are those made for M series BMW's?

I noticed the banner up top is a racing BMW and that the wheels have the M color bars on them.

Cheap & Light Wight? Rota's.


A lot of people like them on this site, as do I.

You can get 17's from AllJdm for $550 (i think, check the site.)
They are pretty light (not 12.7, but not much more.)

Go to wheels, and click the text link that says "list all rotas" or something like that.
He can pretty much get any of them I've heard.

17"s under 13lb's? Buy em. Sorry, but 16"s dont' look all that great on an Accord (Look at my car).

There you go, mine will be gunmetal or silver in a 5x100mm though.

Either 16 or 17, whatever Jason can get me in a 5 lug pattern.
