Has anyone changed out wheels yet?

I bought the 2018 2.0 sport and plan to change the wheels out to some all. High gloss wheels. Has anyone else changed wheels on their 2018 accord?

The wheels on the new accord looks hideous, and if I were in the market to get a new accord (which I am not), I'd spend at least $2k on some premium rims that are made in America, to make the car look better as the front end looks like a grille of a Civic XL (extra-large, not the trim level LX).

However to answer your question, RickBlaine is on point, many people did replace that ugly looking rims with some decent looking rims.

I put 18" Andros R9's for winter on my Touring.
I am curious to see what multi-spoke wheels will look like on this generation.

I bet the Type R wheels will look good on the 10 gens! I'm currently looking for some wheels for my wifes sport and about ready to pull the trigger on these ASA GT13's in gloss black!

Just seen this on another thread, it really looks good for the wheels being smaller. I thought about the winter wheel and tire setup but I just figure I'll leave the Accord in the garage when it snows and drive my Lifted CRV around lol. That's what I got it for anyways plus believe it or not the CRV will go through almost anything.

I was about to pull a trigger on getting a 2018 Accord EX-L 2.0T in KCP literally if my dad didn't bought the Acura MDX, but the rims on this gen, aren't to my taste at all... however, the styling is growing on me still. I do agree the Type R rims will make the thing look 10x better, but the car is 1000x better :lmao .

There are rims that can fit any vehicle, even the 10th gens, so it doesn't need to be specific to what type of rims the OP wants. He can go out and buy some $500 rims and be happy with them. At the end, its still his car, not ours.

Looks vs. Performance (how much do the wheels weigh?)

Tuners will be all over these cars- eventually to squeeze the last bit of performance and mpg, the weight of wheels will enter the picture. Looks are important, but I've seen too many 60 pound tire/wheel combinations on the 8th/9th Gen sub-forums which hurt and lead to "Why is my MPG so low?" and "My car seems slow off the line." questions.

Speaking of weight, does anyone know what the stock 19" Sport wheels weigh? What about the optional 19" black wheels weigh?

I took a quick weight of the OEM Sport wheel and tire combo on my bathroom scale (so I can't vouch for its accuracy).

Wheel + OEM Goodyear tire: 56.4 lbs

Tire weight (According to Tire Rack): 25lbs.

So it looks like the estimated weight of the OEM Sport wheel is 31.4 lbs, give or take a few tenths.

Cool...I've been thinking about the optional Glint Black 19's...but not if they add a whole bunch of weight

Now that I know the weight of these, time to do some research and find the weight of the Type R wheels. I have the money to pull the trigger BUT iffy on buying off the 10th gen Civic forum from guys with 5-10 posts that need to ship the wheels from Cali.


Update 1:

Ok found out the Type R wheels are 53 pounds a piece with tire. That's a relief BUT the lug pattern is 5x120 so I just need to find some thin adapters and boom, swap complete.


Update 2 on the Type R wheels:

So I can purchase a set with under 1000 miles on them shipped to me for $1650. Width is the same as our 19's from factory I've read but the offset is 2mm different which isn't much. The issue is the adapters. While I can get a set for $150 at 15mm. The studs on the factory hub would need to be knocked out I do believe I would need the adapter to be bolted to the hub. Which is ok, BUT every time I go to switch wheels, it would be a major pain in the and I really like our factory Sport wheels. Now I have to decide if looking cool is worth all this trouble AND if I have the clearance for the added width. Hmmmmmm

Stock sport wheels are 19x8.5 with 235-40-R19 with 55mm offset. Lookin at buying new wheels that are 19x8.5 with 45mm offset. Will the new wheels with a 10mm difference in offset fit without problems?
