RL Wheels

To start off, I know that thereís a wheel fitment thread but it kept freezing when I tried to look through it. I found this nice cheap set of Acura RL 17Ē wheels that Iím interested in. My v6 coupeís stock 205/60R16ís have a smaller diameter and circumference than the RLís 245/50R17ís and according to 10/10 Tire, they arenít suggested. I came here to find out if anyone has this wheel/tire setup and how it works. I think the RL wheel is 8Ē so Iím sure there could be some rubbing issues but I donít do a lot of tight, lock to lock turns so I wonder how much of an issue this would be. Again, I know there is a fitment thread but if anyone has experience with this setup, your input would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Re: RL Wheels

I think with how wide these are and with a lot of the 17's on these accords you'll probably have to get your fenders rolled (also depends on your ride height). I don't think I've heard of anyone running RLs personally, but it sounds possible.

Re: RL Wheels

Iíve never heard of it either but figured someone had done it Iím still at stock height but was thinking the same thing. Iím just not sure how well the inner fender could handle them.

Re: RL Wheels

I'm pretty sure stock tire size is 205/60R15, not 70R15.

Going wider often causes issues, especially with the rear swaybar links.

Re: RL Wheels

Not sure. But I know with being lowered ~1.5-2" my 17s don't rub. That's all.

Re: RL Wheels

Given that it is an OEM Honda wheel the offset will be no lower than +45 (your OEM wheels are +55), and with an 8" width you should not have any issues. Many people have put the 3G TL 17x8 wheels on their 6GA at various ride heights and I don't recall hearing any issues that were not easily fixed. I am running some 3G TL A-spec wheels that are 18x8 +45, I am lowered a few inches and never had a problem. If you are at stock height you should be fine.

Tire wise you will want to run whatever tire size will match the OEM overall diameter. Playing with a tire calculator will give you that size.

Re: RL Wheels

I ran 16" OZs with a +44 or +42 offset this past summer; they barely cleared the front brakes.
