What about the tires that we got on our 15" OEM rims? (DX and LX)
Do you know how these tires would fit on, say 16" rims?
doesn't matter it's all about width :)

16x7 wears a 195mm tire :)

No stretch

You can use those tires and stretch the life outta them.. put them on a 9.0" wide 16" rim. 55 profile tire might look silly tho lol

Most people who stretch tires are in and around the 45 or below range because they want to make big rims look bigger :)

i dont get why people stretch tires...a little stretching is sometimes necessary, like my snow tires for my eg. but why stretch to insane proportions? it looks weird and is dangerous, right?

xtra wide rims + stretch tires on honda are adapt from vw's, German's & Canadians vw enthusiasts been stretching tires since the 80's... if you been around with vw's.. you'll get used to the look

it's not dangerous, but i don't think it's safe either..

thanks team 3d, but yes, it's not nessesarily umnsafe, unless you go completely over board, but a lot of people like to show the brim of the wheel and in essence show off the wheels. Also, i personally find it looks cool :)

For example, i'll be stretching some 205's on 8.0" wide rims, yes a very mild stretch, but i think it'll still look great :)

yeah a mild stretch is cool, i think it does look neat to show a LITTLE lip...but remember that celica that i think bluestar posted the vid of? the retardedly crazy camber one? those tires are INSANELY stretched. like, i-didnt-know-that-was-physically-possible kinda stretch. and how do the tires even stay on?

they actually only stay on because of pressure, some guys will actually melt their tires to get them to stretch enough lol.. falls under the impossible level lol

see, to me thats CRAZY...to each his own i guess, but I appreciate balance. going to any extreme with any mod will eventually do your car in. I dont have the money to change out tires every week, but i guess some people do. Props to them! :thumb:

Opinions on an 18 x 8 with im guessing have to be a 45? or 35?R18225 tire to fit our cars stock size? And will a 5 x 114.3 lug pattern match? Would 18 x 9 with 225s look bad?

so the oem tire and rim size on 8th gens is "oversized"?

215/45/17
17x7 +45

It doesn't pinch the tire at all in 215 size.

In 225 it has VERY VERY slight pinch. I could literally stick a 235 on there before it actually looks pinched.

no, your right, i had 235's on my 7" wide tires on my accord, but it looks like a truck tire lol

215 should be on a 7.5" wide rim to fit perfect.

17x7 should have a 205 tire if you honestly want "perfect fitment/no stretch"
