as you all know i have been shopping for rims for awhile. well i finally found a set that is decent. well my question to you is tires? what size should i get for 17x7? my options are 205/40/17 or 215/45/17. personally i like the 215/45/17. gonna keep the rims a bit of a secret, so for now i need to know what would be the best tire size i should be getting. MAHALO

215/45/17 gets my vote

^ 215/45/17 +1

the 205/40/17 for Civics/Integras has a lower weight load rating at 80-84 which can make the heavier accord wear it out faster or possibly pop like on my accord.

they're called DC 340 B Tuner Concept. I found them on Wheelselections.com. Took over a month for shipping. Those Sport max are starting to become popular w/ the deep dish lips & 8+width. I see a lot of rwd cars sporting them. Very nice.

they make a 17x7 still need to call to see if it's available for our bolt pattern. if not was looking at the katanas 10 spoke, they are called stage. dont see anyone with them so thats why i like it

today this guy tried selling me a set of 17's tenzo R mesh looking ones with tires for $500. walked around his car and told him are you fuckin serious? first off it's nothing i was looking for but looked at it anyways. this son of a bitch had more scratches than freddy kruger with chicken pox. then i read the tires it was the 205's and remembered you said they would pop. guy told me make an offer and i felt like i was on the price is right and bid a dollar. guy felt insulted, so i told him sorry man maybe some other dummy would pay the 500 for it.

yah, some guys can be cheapskates, trying rip off people. A lot of guys tried to do that to me, when I was looking for rims, and offered low when I was selling. So, you can get those Katanas on the island?

dunno?! jus got approved for a platnium credit card, with a big freakin limit. kinda feel rich but i'm not?! but i'm ordering them from the web. $850 with tires, free shipping. there's a fuckin gimmic i feel it. handling probably gonna be expensive. nobody likes shipping to hawaii. called sport max today, asked how deep is the lip? they said that is bout a inch and a quarter, not that deep. but the wife really likes the katana stage.

he's accordracer24. Doesn't have the mesh like wheels like your looking for just showing what black looks on your guys color he's come a long way. He has the omnipower coilovers(sweet ass suspension). If hawaii didn't have that stupid 2" bounce rule, I would be sporting them till they break. haha. Well here's his thread, sorry jonathan, if you see this, just trying to help an accord brotha out:

shit johnathan that is freakin beautiful. the accords i see down here that are the same color have either bling bling chromies, or silvers. that really helped, definately getting the black with polished lips. goin with the katanas most likely, but second choice is those max sports.
