Tires 205/55R16 yes or no ??

Hello
In my country 205/60R16 (typical for accord) tires are not so popular.
So, they are more expensive (about 50%) than typical (in Poland) 205/55R16
I would like to ask, what are You thinking... are they not so small ??
Maybe somebody have 205/55R16 and can show me the photos, how are they looks.
I can buy Toyo Proxes T1-R 205/55R16 91 W


This tire is unfortunately less diameter about 1 inch (campared with nominal) - it's a lot - i think

second: are 215/55 they o'k for typical honda rim ??

Regards
Jack

I have 215/55/16s on my 2000 Accord with 16x6.5 Honda rims. Stock size was also 205/60/16. 215 width tires were standard on the USDM 06-07 V6 Accords with 6.5" rims, so you can definitely put 215 tires on your rims.

Here is a comparison of different tire sizes:
Specification Sidewall Radius Diameter Circumference Revs/Mile Difference
205/60-16 4.8in 12.8in 25.7in 80.7in 785 0.0%
205/55-16 4.4in 12.4in 24.9in 78.2in 811 -3.1%
215/55-16 4.7in 12.7in 25.3in 79.5in 797 -1.5%
215/60-16 5.1in 13.1in 26.2in 82.2in 771 1.8%

I'm thinking the same thing that 215/55R16 would minimize the difference and thus keeping a close to stock tire ratio instead of running 55 profile on 205s. So the speedo is not messed up as much.

were wrote, that the rims are 17 in 3.0 V6
But You are right 215 is 215.
I hope, that 215 are not to wide, and don't stand out behind the car.

Only the 6-speed manual transmission cars have the 17" rims, I believe.

The earlier models (03-05) also have 7" wide rims, vs. the 6.5" wide rims of the 06-07 V6 models.

I am running 225/45s on my 17x7s vs stock 215/50s. 7 inch rims will hold up to a 235 tightly so you should be okay with 215.

What is the highest sidewall I can run on my car? I have the stock 17inch V6 wheels. The ride is harsh. My car is not something I would want to take on a trip from my home in Seattle to Miami for example.

That's probably the longest possible road trip in the lower 48 states, so don't beat yourself up too much! I think 215/55 or 225/50 would be the max you would want to put. Otherwise you'd throw off the speedo and odo more than you want to.

I don't mean to hijack, but I am going to move up to the 215/55 tires for my 05 4 door. Anyone experience a drop in fuel economy going to the bigger tires (and getting away from the Michelin MXV4 energy brand) Thanks

Yes, as long as you don't mind the slightly inaccurate speedo and mileage readings.

My 2014 Accord has 205/65/16 tires, but I have some 205/55/16 snows; besides inaccurate speed readings is there any other danger to mounting these tires?

None what so ever.

But did you realize this is the 7th Gen forum? You have a 9th Gen Accord.
