14 Sport with Niche targa wheels

This is simply an informational thread regarding my experiences. I've noticed for some reason some members like to bash others in their choice of wheels. I simply choose these because they worked for my budget and needs, this is my daily driver and I just didnt want it to look so stock, I'm not expecting some on here to like this style, I just wanted to help out others that may be looking for info regarding these. To each his own, on to the specs.

2014 Sport with 20x8.5 targas with 35mm offset, tires are 245/35/20 toyo extensa hp. I went with a square setup simply so I could rotate easily. The car is lowered on h&r sport springs with camber arms, rear camber set at 1.5, front is at .8 right now. Rim and tire combo are within one pound of the stock 18" combo. Ride is still rather smooth and handling was noticeable improved, fuel economy stayed the same.

Looks good, sometimes I wish I went with that color, anthracite or black.

Who cares what others may think or feel as long as it works for you. That's all that matters. AT least we all seem to agree that the Accord is a decent vehicle at a decent price. Enjoy your new Sport.

^ This.

I like the color and wheel style. Would it look better with concave? Yeah, but I'm sure you'd get into some nasty camber, tire stretch, etc.

Mine is concave, with no stretch and factory spec alignment.

very nice; did you get them locally here in Tampa; or did you order online? I have been looking for a nice set of wheels at a good price; do you mind if I ask how much did they set you back?

Thanks, hope to see you on the road!!!
