After looking long and hard at many different types of wheels with different types of offsets, after studying pictures and looking at every available wheel for the Acccord i went ahead and ordered from Tirerack wheels and tires for my stock ride height 2019 Sport.

I wanted a convex wheel, something with depth, not flat like the stock 19s, these seem to fit the look i was after.
the 245s are actually pretty stretched, I think 255's would've fit the wheel (and protect it) better...

Road feel is excellent with these tires, actually feels way more planted than stock.

19x9.5" - 45 offset front/rear
245/40 19's

In my opinion, the - 45 offset with a 9.5" wide wheel seems to fit perfect for stock ride Accords.

Take a look...

Great looking set of wheels, excellent choice. I think it was a good call on selecting something that has a bit of depth to it. Really noticeable from the side/rear profile. Best keep clear of those curbs.

This may be a dumb question, but does anyone know if we can put 245s on stock Sport/Touring rims? I think a bit of extra width would help curb rash

I remember reading in a post that someone said 245/40/R19 would work but I can't confirm. Would be nice if they do w/o any issues as this may provide additional protection against curb rash.
@robino has 9.5" width wheels on his car above, OEM wheels are 8.5 width... my thinking is with 245's there would be additional tire width (each side - exterior/interior) protecting the rim.

the 9.5 wheels would in all reality fit 255's and they would still look stretched a little
265s would fit even with the wheel and protect the lip, i just didnt want the extra width/weight as my priority is mpg's

What wheels are these? Wasn't able to find a comparable wheel on TireRack with the same convex to it. Thanks

Not a dumb question at all. The answer is yes.

I just threw away the horrible Goodyear Tourings that came with my 19 Accord. I bought it new in March of this year and between lack of protection for the rims and their dismal wet performance and treadwear, I replaced them at 17,900 miles with a set of 245/40R19 Vredestein Quatrac Pros. They fit perfectly with no rubbing anywhere and the sidewalls stand proud of the rims by a couple of millimeters.

Can you post pics of those? I had been thinking of going to that size when I replaced my tires. TIA.

Thanks for the input! i don't know how long you've had them compared to the previous tires; have you noticed a difference in fuel economy?

I've only had them a few days on. I doubt the very small width and diameter difference is going to have an effect on fuel consumption. If it does, it will be so small that it will get lost in the noise.
