Hi everyone,

I'm new to the group and have a question for the experts here.

I plan on getting Niche m220 wheels with the following specs: 20x9, 35+ offset & 72.6mm hub.

What tire specs &brand would you recommend I get for my 2.0 EX-L? I'm trying to go as flush with the body as possible without having to put spacers. In addition, I live in Florida so I would be looking at summer options only.

Lastly, are there any sites you would recommend I use for a wheel/tire combo?

Any responses will be greatly appreciated :nerd::grin:

Wheel weight is a major concern as affects performance, gas mileage, braking, and ride; all negatively. As you go larger, the weight is further from the center with all the same problems. Think of the wheels as four large flywheels. If you look ar the Honda specs, you will see that the gas mileage drops by 2 mpg just going from the EXL 17” wheels to the 19” on the Sport and Touring. Acceleration and braking are afffected similarly. As repeated on here many times, expect more opportunities for curb rash and pothole damage as you decrease the profile. Tires are way more expensive as well.

TireRack.com is a great source for the info you are requesting. They list all specs; weight and offset for your application. If you decide to purchase they will mount and balance your new wheels/tires for free and ship to you. Their pricing is competitive.

Last 3 Accords. 2019 Accord Sport 2.0T with Strada Sega 20 inch 5 x 114.3, 8.5, 35mm offset on Falken 245/35/20 FK453. 2013 Accord Coupe EX-L V6 with TSW Bardo 20 inch, 5 x 114.3, 8.5, 40mm offset, on Falken 245/35/30 FK 453. 2010 Accord EX-L with TSW Vortex 20, 5 x 114.3, 8.5, 40mm offset on Niton555 245/35/20.

Total of 5 brand new Accords, 2002 V6 EX-L V6 with 18 inch Diablo wheels, can’t recall the specifics. The monster not pictured was the 2003 Accord Coupe EX-L V6 coupe 6spd. I will try to dig up the actual photos, pagers were the method of communication then so no cell phone or cell phone pics...
