Default 2013 Civic Winter Tires to 2015 Accord Touring

New to the forum and little to nothing about Honda. I had a 2013 Civic for a year with winter tires (205/55/R16) and decided to trade it with 2015 Accord Touring currently have a stock rim of 235/45/R18 and just wondering will a be able to use my winter tire to my new Accord? If not Thanks everyone.

Brake clearance is the big concern.
(BTW, 235/45-R18 is a tire size, not a rim size)

Go to tirerack & go through the motions of shopping for a winter set for your Accord. They will list a couple different wheel diameters, and if they don't include any 16" then probably there's no clearance for the Accord brakes.

The other things to check are the width and offset. So the rims will be something like 16 x 5 inch "ET40" (I'm just making up numbers for now). The ET40 part is the tire being further in or out of the wheel well. Tirerack has a real good explanation of offset somewhere in tech-info on their website. If the width and offset of your Civic wheels are somewhere in the range of TireRack's options listed as "fitting" your Accord, then they're good.
