Hey all,

So I'm brand new here, I just got a brand new 2021 EX-L Hybrid in crystal pearl black. and I'm coming from a VIP Lexus LS430 and so used to and loving the static low life with 3 piece wheels, I've been trying to find any builds of the Hybrid Accord and I can't find anything! I was lost and wondering if lowering, modding, and doing the all unnecessary to a HYBRID is such a backward thing to do lol. As right now i'm just trying to lower the car, was either thinking about coil-overs or lowering springs. If someone pointed me in the right direction that'd be great! And if anyone knows how much MPG id be losing if i ran on bigger wheels lol

Hey man! Congrats on the new Accord. The Hybrid version is not commonly modified simply because most car enthusiast are opting for the 2.0T and 1.5T Sport over the Hybrid but they are out there, and you definitely should! I recently lowered my Sport 2.0T on D2 Racing springs which has led to about a 2 inch drop all around. There are great lowering spring, and coilover options on the market for the Accord platform.

As far as larger wheels go I highly doubt that there will be a noticeable difference in gas mileage, maybe a few miles a gallon at most. The big difference will be that ride quality will be far different since you'll be moving to larger wheels, and I assume much thinner side walls. Expect more road noise, and a higher risk of encountering flat tires with a setup like this. Your speedometer will be slight off as well. With all this being said there are sacrifices we must make to achieve a great looking car and fitment. I say go for it!

Going from stock 17 to stock 19 that are on the touring is about an eighth mpg penalty. So yes with any car bigger wheels and tires comes with a mpg penalty. Its one of the reasons I wanted an EXL not a touring. I went with a wider lighter 17 in wheel but I kept my stocks for traveling. Welcome and enjoy.

Bigger heavier wheels effect mpg on the Hybrids and any cars considerably. Always can find light weight 20’s. Mine are 22 pounds per wheel. Stock 19’s are in the 30+ pound category. It can be done but VIP style cars tend to rock some heavy wheels.
