I ended up buying 20s to put on my 2020 Accord Sport. The Sport rims looks good but I am not a fan of them. I said that I would keep them at least a year which really translated to 6 months. I went back to my favorite tire which is the Continental DWS06 which is the same tires that I put on my 2018 Accord. Will post the pics when they are installed.

On my older 2014 Civic Si, I also ran Continental DWS 06 tires. They weren't too bad for the price. What size did you buy? I looked at them on Tire rack but only at 255/35/R19's. I am still on my OEM All season tires on my Sport 2.0T. I'm now at 32,337 miles. Those all gloss black wheels do look nice. See, for me, I do LOVE the look of the OEM Sport wheels. That's just personal preference though 馃榿I can't wait to upgrade my tires when I need a new set though!
Thank you 馃檹馃徑

This time I went with 245/35/20. My car has a little over 3,700 miles on it so far. I am going to sell the original rims and tires since I don鈥檛 plan on using the OEM stuff. They aren鈥檛 bad I guess my issue is that I like to be different and there are so many Accords out there on the road. I supposed to get a quote tomorrow for wrapping my entire car in forged carbon so we shall see what happens!

Oh, you're absolutely welcome!! :p I totally agree with you! For me and my Sporty, I LOVE to modify things, and upgrade parts when the OEM parts fail! 馃弾 Yeah, I mean for my Sport, one of the main things in the future that I'll love to upgrade is the front upper part of the grille from chrome to blacked-out chrome. Mine is getting soo pitted up with rock chips, etc. In the future, I'll want to have that upgraded to the blacked out chrome upper grille! I'm also going to be upgrading the OEM brake pads to carbon ceramic pads for less brake dust on the wheels, and Stainless steel brake hoses for better stopping feel and a more responsive pedal feel as well!
I learned from my 2018 that the front of the car will need to be protected from rock chips so on my 2020, I covered the grille and wrapped the front of the car.

Thanks! What are your thoughts on the Ceramic/hydrophobic coating? Thanks for the heads up about the intake. I was thinking about changing mine out but I don鈥檛 think that I am going to do it now.

@Mod_Gen10 nice, what is the width of the wheel? Are you doing a square set up? (All 4 wheels of the same sizes flushed with the fender)
Hey, the width is 20x8.5 and the tires are 245/35/20. Yes, I have a square setup. I will post pics up tomorrow evening.

Wow, beautiful looking wheels and tires. Those tires and width and low profile look good. I was thinking 255s for mine though. How's the ride on 35 sidewall series tires though? That's honestly the look and the performance feel that I want for mine.
I feel like the ride is a little less smoother that my stock wheels but I may have to drive it a little more to get you an honest answer. I drove the car maybe 5 miles after the install. I will update you after the weekend because I do have to do more driving but I won鈥檛 be leaving the house again until Saturday lol 馃槀
