Default can these tires fit my stock rims?

Hello, so i was wondering if my stock alloy rims on my 06 accord (ex)

ALY63907U10 Honda Accord Wheel Silver Machined #42700SDAJ01

can fit 215/60/16.

Yes, they'll fit, but they're the wrong size for our car and will cause speedometer and odometer error (both will read low). If you want a wider tire a better fit will be 225/55 R16 tires; they'll be a little less than an inch wider still have the same overall diameter.

Ok, sweet thanks! So look wise will the tire be bigger or smaller, I know they will be a little wider but was hoping everything thing else was same

The 225/55 R16 tires will be wider but otherwise have the same sidewall height.

I have been looking into the same thing for an 2012 Accord SE, same wheel/tire size. In my case I was concerned with wet/dry braking and handling which meant a UHP tire not available in the OEM size for the SE.

I agree with abestar, a 225/55 R16 is almost a perfect match although it's an odd size for some tires.

You might want to take a look at this site:

https://tiresize.com/calculator/

It has a size comparison calculator and will show a graphic display of the difference in size between two tires as well as the speedometer error.

discount tires site has a similar calculator that isn't quite as good but will work for a quick comparison. As a last step, Tire Rack is always a good place to check. Local dealers aren't always up on tire size changes with specific wheel sizes.
