Question Looking to put 20 inch rims on my accord!

I'm looking to put 20 inch rims on my 2010 Accord Ex-L. I was thinking about these (Vertini Riviera Wheel Black Chrome Lip 20x8.5 +35 5x114.3) kinda pricey everywhere that I've looled. Any suggestions on where I might possibly get them cheaper or similar rims that are more affordable?.... Open for suggestions as well

Hi Member
Mighty big wheel to put on a Accord even tho they will fit. They do cause you high cost and sometimes more problems than you'll wish not to have.
The tires for that size rim are 245/35R/20
You will also need Camber kits and you will have to more than likely have to replace all 4 TPMS's while your at it. This is the V6 model isn't it.?

You do realize that by mounting such large wheels on your car, acceleration, braking, handling, ride, and wheel survivability (from road hazards) will suffer; don't you?

Well would you suggest going with 19's or 18's and then lowering it?

You'll get the best performance with 18" wheels. Personally I'm not a fan of lowering cars, of course, part of that might be due to the fact that I live up in snowy New Hampshire.

I just got 18 in ASA AR1 rims with 215/40/18 dunlops for my 99 4 cyl coupe EX. I also am looking on eBay for full coilover kits (there's a ton at great prices) and last but certainly not least a camber kit. It'll cost you a decent amount in the long run, but if you shop right you'll find some deals. I suggest Craigslist for the rims. I got my rims (2 with brand new dunlops @ $300+ a piece!) for a cool $400! Didn't even haggle! But of course it's not just rims and tires you'll need to buy. Alignment, mounting and balancing tires, etc. I'm sure you know that. Just make sure you have the budget to fully complete the project! You don't want a lowered car without a camber kit your tires will NOT be happy. It'll cost you more in the end. Good luck take pics and show us how it goes!

I had 20s on my 2010 4cyl coupe and it wasn't that big a deal. MPG went down about 2-3 mpg on the hwy, handling improved big time, and braking was barely a noticable difference. Do what you want with your car.
