Currently have about 34k miles on the factory Goodyear eagle tires and they are not good. Even from day 1. Thinking about running 245/40/19 Firestone Indy 500 or 265/35/19 Firestone Indy 500 ( I work for Firestone so I get a good deal on firestones ). Not gonna run in the winter, I have blizzaks on winter wheels for next winter. I just want more traction, has anyone ran wider tires on stock wheels??

I haven't, put wider tires on. I'm with Samuelx that I think 265s would be too wide for the stock rims. I know i've seen other people post that they've put 245s on the stock rims and said they haven't had any issues.

Once i've worn my Michelin Primacys out (standard on the Touring) i'm getting some better all seasons. I had been eyeing up the Vredestein Quatrac 5s since they seems to have pretty good overall reviews on Tire Rack's website (much better snow capabilities than the Primacys.

The approved rim width for the 265 is a min of 9 inch wide wheel and the stocks are 8.5 so it is close to what Firestone says but they will fit but not sure how they will look. Might mount up in summer and see how it looks compared to the 245/40 and go from there

I'm running 255/35/R19 Continental VikingContact's on Touring wheels for the winter. Going from the Sport wheels and stock tires the ride is definitely more comfortable as well as quieter.
I'm running the same tires (VikingContact 7s; assume the same) but I did 17" with aftermarket wheels.

If you plan on running a 265 tire, I would have to agree w/ some of you guys above me. I would not advise running the 265 on a 8.5 wide wheel. Im running a 9.5 wide wheel and have 245. It has a very slight stretch. 255 would probably work better on a 9.5 and sit nice and flush with the face of a wheel. Good luck!

I'd stick to 245 max myself. I think it starts to look too chunky above 245 on the 19's. I actually like the very slight stretch to the stock 235's, but it's an odd size.
The Indy 500's are an excellent value. Had them on my 8th gen coupe for a couple summers. The best ultra high performance summer tire for the money.

I Run a Year Around Set Up - Sure just Summers are Great for Max Corning , & Dedicated Winter Tires are Fantastic . . ALL of those If to Wide

You'll ~ Hydro Plane ~ If on Wet Not Traction - Limited Steering , If on Slush or Slick Snow 30 ~ 36 Degree stuff Your Car & You are in for Ride to Body Shop !
75% Higher Risk of Damage ..

Many Person in Winter ~ Full On Winter ~ Not Snow in Southern PA for 4 weeks will Actually Run narrower Tires -1 set up is actually better . .

It's all about t Tires ! Plus Staying out of Boost - seeing Our Accord does really have Snow Mode or Rain Mode . .
