Actually none of the above :grin: I do live in a location that gets snow but I have a four wheel drive SUV for that weather. :smile_big: I do remember a thread that a member had acquired a second set of wheels to install snow tires on I'll try to find it and provide the link. Not sure if they are steel wheels though.Well three days and nary a whisper. I'm going to take a wild guess here and say that 75% of Accord owners are in California or similar climes and that of the 25% who are left, most wouldn't be caught dead with snow tires and that of those that would get snow tires 99% wouldn't be caught dead with a steel rim.
And that's why there are no steel rims out there because y'all ain't buying 'em.
I use the Tire Rack alloy wheels and they work fine. After 10 years they look a little scruffier than the OEM wheels. You could replace them four times for the price of a OEM Honda wheel, but they still look good enough to put on the new car. The hard part is that they use a plastic center ring spacer the sometimes sticks to the hub, and you need to use different lug nuts. All my Hondas had alloy wheels that used nuts with spherical seats, and every other alloy wheel I've ever seen uses conical seats. I threw away the center spacers.
I'm sure the 16 inch alloy wheels are gonna work on my EX because it came with a 16 inch steel spare, but I haven't tried it yet.
Hi I just joined this forum when I saw this post. I just bought a brand new 2018 Accord EX and I live in Montana and always like to have a set of snow tires on their own rims, preferably steel. The ones you show here are like what I'd be interested in. I also found these on Amazon. I'm wondering if this would work? It looks like the offset is 50cm where I think the OEM aluminum wheels on the car are 45cm offset. It would be great to know either of these will work, I'm far from an expert on this sort of thing.Been contemplating on getting an Accord Touring 2.0T and upon my research for a winter set-up I found these. SInce I am on the Volkswagen side of car enthusiasm at the moment, a lot of forum members over there have been using RTX steel wheels and have reported nothing but positive feedback. If you check the reviews an Si owner chimes in on his purchase also.
PS - SInce this is my first post the forum won't let me post an Amazon link due to spamming? Anyway just copy and paste this into Amazon's search bar:
RTX, Steel Rim, New Aftermarket Wheel, 17X7, 5X114.3, 64.1, 45, black finish X47564
I'm thinking that the inner hole diameter 64.1 is the only possible issue, I'll have to confirm that. I'm also thinking that the tire pressure monitoring won't work? Then I'm wondering if the stock lug nuts will work with the steel rims or maybe get some old school lug nuts for winter use.i would buy 1 wheel first just to try out the fitment. I would do it but don't have an Accord yet lol Tbh, they look good to go!
