Default need advice on aftermarket wheels for a 2012 Accord

Hello. We (wife) own a 2012 Accord Sedan EX-L. She wants to go with an aftermarket wheel that looks sportier than the stock wheel; maybe a little wider too. We'd rather not lift or lower the car and need some help with what width, offset, backspace, etc. to go with without having any rubbing. Her car is a pearl white with factory rear wing and tinted windows; she's currently running factory 17" wheels and 225/50/17 tires. As for color (chrome, black, etc.) we hadn't really decided. Any assistance would be appreciated.

Don't mess with the offset or tire diameter. Going up to 18x8 should be ok. If you don't alter the diameter the fuel milage and acceleration should be the same. The ride will be a little stiffer. There are a lot of options out there. Tire Rack has a nice site that lets you see what the wheel will look like on the car.

Thanks Billd, appreciate the information. I guess I should have done a little research before posting. I will check out the website as you have suggested.
