Would these wheels fit? 06 Honda Accord

I have a 2006 Accord EX Coupe. Its stock tire size is P205/65R15.

Would I run into any issues if I change my wheels/tires to 215/50-17? If I want to bump my wheels up to the 16-17" range, what size should I be looking at without having to make any modifications to anything else?

For our 98-02 accords, stock is 16s, the correct sizing for 17s is 215/50/17.

Check with tirerack for 03-07 accord sizing. If this size is correct, theres really nothing you have to mod, unless you lowered your vehicle then make sure no rubbing.

Make sure the width of your 17 inch wheel can fit 215, also check wheel offset is proper... And get an alignment.

Some ppl I know say no need for alignment unless suspension mods, but different pov for different people.

Good luck bud.

If that's your original sizing 215/50/17 should be fine. Just go to any of the online tire websites (like, or and see what the "plus" options are for the correct sizing. If you are buying used rims you need to be aware of, amongst other things, the bolt pattern, offset, width, bore size, etc...

I'm running 225 45 18 on my 03 coupe.

Depending on the wheel design you might want to do 18 or 19 instead. We have fat cars that need bigger wheels to look good.

18x8 +40 offset is almost flush with the fenders
