I'm planning on getting aftermarket wheels for my Accord and was wondering what setups you guys are running. Will a 19x9.5 +35 work on this car? Will also plan on lowering it in the future! Show me what you guys have!

Thought I’d share mine in case others are researching....
2019 Touring 2.0
D2 Pro 2” drop lowering springs
CONCEPT ONE - RS-55 (20" x 8.5" +35)
235/35R20 Tires
There is a bit of a gap in the back. Going to try 3/4” spacers. However, I want to add a rear camber kit before I do that.

I would have loved to do coil overs, but with the touring Adaptive Suspension, not much of an option unless you don’t mind staring at a suspension warning light on your dash for the rest of the time you own it. The ride has a small amount of bounciness. If I put it in sport mode it kills a bit of the bounciness.

You shouldn't need a Rear Camber Kit. The Rear Alignment is fully adjustable on Gen X Accords and will eliminate the negative Camber if adjusted correctly. Just found that out. The front is a different issue LoL... But I didn't really have a camber issues in front. Lowered with Eibach ProKit Springs. 20x9 +38 Offset on 255/35/20 (went with 255 because I don't care for the stretched tire look) (y) Let us know if you've fixed the issue. Your car looks great either way! 💯

I actually just took mine in for Alignment right after I threw on my new wheels and springs. Never bought a camber kit. The guy who did the alignment said that the rear is adjustable, but the front would need a Camber kit if I wanted to fix the small amount of negative camber but said it wasn't really necessary, since it wasn't as prominent as the rear negative after lowering and wheel swap.

So I'm just leaving the front the way it is and I will rotate every 3000 miles or so just to be safe. I'm trying to avoid buying the $300+ camber kit from Eibach 🤣 (cheapskate)

I know the guy who did it. I will ask him how he adjusted it and I'll let you know if he decides to show me.💯👍🏼

That makes sense if you had very little camber. The stock setup would allow for a degree or two. No adjustment once you hit that limit (as in my case).
No clue man. I don't have a stock setup. I have the Eibach ProKit and I put on 20x9 wheels with 255/35/20 tires. Adjusted just fine. Unless he secretly hooked me up with a camber kit 🤣

Sorry bro... I just realized that you have a Touring with Adaptive suspension. I wonder if it's different than mine because of it. Mine is just a Sport, so not sure. 🤦🏻‍♂️

Those look really nice... how's the ride w/the 20's? I would be one nervous so & so whenever I had to park against a curb... my stock (19's) make me nervous enough. 😬
Im not too worried ive always been conscious of whats in the roads, potholes, etc even when i had a truck om thick tires. As for parking and curbs, not worried i stay away from those and keep an eye on it as i park


Lookin good!! I helped my friend pick out these wheels and BC coilovers for his G37 a few months ago. Are you planning to go lower as well?
I do want to just trying to find a place charging a reasonable price. So far around here theyre asking for $5-800 for labor + alignment. The 800 said they order the springs for me so thats why theyre up there.

Sucks because i read elsewhere most only getting charged up to 300 for install 😒
