So I’m looking for new set of wheels I don’t wanna jump in to suspensions yet which I think that’s where I should start I’m a big fan of these types 5 star rims just looking for some pointers how bad would it tear up my stock suspension if I put these on idc about the weight since I’m not building it to race any suggestions would be nice or what else I can go with stock suspension I live in New York and roads here suck so definitely not looking to lower it thank you for your time :) 2018 Honda Accord 2.0t Sport manual

I say if those are the wheels that you want and they fit with stock suspension then go for it. :)

There is a lot of Allowable Room on the Honda Accord , but Certainly - to Much in Any Direction will ~ Impact Alignment ~
Tire Wear and then Rubbing . .

Normally I like to Check & Spec all Items .. It seems Lately ( Tire Rack ) - mostly working from Home or some Other BS - for - NOT Knowing Their Job ..

Then - During Middle of Pandemic - U Offer Up to Spend Big Bucks - U would Think - they would Ful-Fill a few Simply Request for doing Business with Them ..

Seeing Their Reputation isn't Greatest ~ First Up ~ Inventory as Far as Tires Go ~ Same Country , Same Month , same Manufacture .. is Minimum . .

They Could NOT Ful-Fill these Simple Request 9 Months ago .. or 5 Years Ago ..

They have gotten Better - Tires are from Same Week , From Same Place , But Still might be from
3 Different Molds !

Example : They didn't stock Offsets , nor How Far Out certain set of Wheels would be - If those Had 44mm Offset ..
Most have 50mm to 35mm with 48mm & 38mm seeming to be sweet Spot Depending on Rim Width . .


Just Leave it to them , If it all Goes South - then - Reject the Entire Set Up and - have them Resend Replacement with Correct Set Up !
Seems How they like to do it Haa , seems like a waste of Time . . But Hey It's Their Customer Satisfaction - they Claim to Have . .

My Simple Request from any of these Tires - Placement Installers - that are doing Mounting -
1. all Weights to be Added be with in say ~ 1 OZ. so this Keeps Odd 1 Off Tires with Bad Match on Cords being Added to Your Purchase
By a Computer Aided - Road Force Balancing Masking - said Condition .. Furthermore 1 Oz. Keeps Wheel Manufactures Honest
No Sloppy Rims - with .025 Wiggles & Out Rounds Conditions - Wobbles etc. - Which Tire Rack will say they have .040 Max Tolerance
~ Which is Total BS ~

Best Mounting , Best Practices , Best Balancing - is Not the Machines they use - But the Installer Mounter . .

Truck Tires on Steel Wheels - Balance out Better then 2 Oz ~ 2.75 Oz.

Further I have seen 100's of Wheels & Tires Balance Out @ ZERO ~ .75 Oz , so asking for Max. of 1 Oz per Tire is NOT out of Question.
Just Takes a Good Man - taking Their Time - In Middle of Pandemic - Where They Going anyway to the Moon ?

Just Seems in Middle of a Pandemic when everything is very Tight with 80% More then Normal & Business is Down across the Broads ..
Tire Rack & Others would be Going Out of their way to make Great Deals , and Throw Down with Great Installs ( Great Install ) Begins with
Experienced Tire & Wheel Guy that is on Good Equipment _ that He Knows & Likes . .

Secondly Computer Aided _ Road Force Balancing - doesn't - Mean that Tire Rack just Hire bunch of Rookies and Hope Equipment Works it's Wonders . .

I for one always ask for Min. Balancing Weight 1OZ Max - Per Tire & Wheel Combo ~ with Today's Machines all being Tuned to doing .00015 for 2 Million Hours
Certainly Mag Wheel is going to be Better then .012 all Day Long - GONE are the Days of +/_ .040 or Later Plus or Minus .015 ~
Now it is Max TIR .012 , so No Wobble , No Up & Down Bobbing , No Tire Dancing back & Forth ..
Secondly If the Tire & Wheel are MATCHED Up Correctly 1oz is easy for these Guys ..

I have Cheap A$$ steel Rims & Cheap A$$ Truck Tires - Balance out with 2 Oz. Max at all 4 Corners all day Long ..

If Your Wheels have 2.75 Oz. & 3.0 Oz & 2.25 Oz etc. on all 4 They were in a Hurry and just Grab some Parts Through them together and Hope Machine
does it's Magic Enough YOU won't Notice . . that's Total BS - just Like Welding SS with Out Shielding Gas

Furthermore any little tiny nic's in Paint on back where some NOT so Gentle handling from being Clamped Hard & Fast ~ Tire Rack should be supplying
Touch Up Paint ~ Period ~ or Ding $25 Bucks on Inside & Ding $50 Bucks on Front for very small stuff . .
Especially If Your Balancing weight are Up Higher then where they should be . .

OK , so Much for what's Happening on Out side of Our Wheel Tire Packages , so what Might be Going on the ~ Inside ~
OK Maybe We also should be Asking for Tire & Wheel Combo to be done in a Clean Room & that Guy ~ Wash Your Hands before Climbing into Vehicle ~

Also Sorry Man Not meaning to Tread on You - just - Trying to Liven Up the Place . . a little Entertainment . .

I Guess that Video with Camera Mounted inside wasn't much Entertainment . . OK

Maybe Interesting : :cool: On another Note _ Took the " Green " New Shoes for 165 Miles mild cruise through the Mountains ..

Continental Tires - TOURING ~ Tire ~ All I'm able to say so Far is Nice & Quiet _ More Grip then Stock and seem to Cut Curves very well ..
Just 165 Miles to Cook Off the New Green Shoes . . also seem to be returning Better MPG . . as Noted by Tire Rate -
Rating Tires to save 14 Gallons of Fuel over 15K Miles . .
Also Dropped 28 Rotational Lbs & Rims are Wider then Stock ..:p
