    New Acura TL wheels for my Accord, will they fit?

    I was wondering what the offset for the new 17x8 Acura TL wheels are and if they would fit my Honda Accord which if I'm not mistaken needs a 55 offset to fit. Will these wheels fit my car? Please let me know, thanks!

    Are yu serious?

    They are a fit in my book, Odd that yu think it would be diff. Integra(RSX) wheels will also fit that model. I have friends here and in the USA that have swapped wheels between their american model accords and Asian model Accord(TL) and RSX on 98 up V6 accord CP and SDN . I had a friend when i visited had his mothers 03 TL Type-S (Euro Accord R) wheels on his RSX(Integra) The RSX-S wheels were on the Accord(98 V6) and the Accord V6 coupe wheels were on the TL it all werked out.Honda isnt going to go to all the trouble to make 2 diff wheel hub patterns for 2 diff 5 lug patterns.

    If your Accord is 03 and newer, or a V6 98-02, they will bolt up fine...but I personally would not get them them. They will stick out a bit, esp if you keep the Acura sized tires on them. I would get some previous gen TL-S, CL-S or even better, I'd get the HFP (Honda Factory Performance) gunmetal 5 spoke wheels, 19lbs, significantly lighter than the new TL wheels, and better looking imo.

    Here's some pics of the new TL wheels:









    I'd get these HFP wheels:



    I also like CL-S/TL-S:

    You're absolutely right. Now that I've seen them, they just look strange on the Accord. I love the TL/CL wheels, but here in Puerto Rico, everybody with a running car has them and it's really annoying, especially since they're Honda wheels. I mean, they even made a 4 lug version which looks horrible just so they don't have to do a five lug conversion to put them on their cars. Everything from Tercels, Civics, Corollas, Esteems, Aerios, anything you can think of has them, which has killed the appeal. But those HFP wheels look great. I'll have to think about those. Thanks you guys!

    BTW, you wouldn't happen to have any pics of Accords with the Acura TSX wheels on them would you?

    I don't think so, but I've seen it, and it looks good.

    Damn, now I'm going to have to find another set on Ebay because I lost an auction for a set of new ones for $400 plus shipping and now that you mention that they look good it's just making me crazier. But thanks for the help though! My search continues......

    I've seen a 6th gen coup with them and a sedan. Looks okay.
