The diameter of the wheels sound spot on perfect, however, nine and ten inch wide wheels are most likely too wide for your car. What tire size were you thinking of running on those monsters?

Unless I miss my guess, the two front wheels are two and a half to three inches wider than your factory wheels, and the rears are an inch wider than that. Unless you like rubbing your tires against the fender wells, fender lips and suspension components, and having two to three inches of tire hanging out beyond the edge of the fenders, then take a pass on those wheels.

Im running 17 x 7 with dt40 offset and 235/45-17 tires on my 2000 Honda accord v6-l and it rubs against the fender slightly. Not too sure about the 08 honda wheel well sizing etc but i wouldn't recommended it.
