I have been told that the tire size is 115 4 bolt and the tire size is 205/75/r15. I went to tire rack and they do not list my model. 2002 SE V6. they only list a 4 cyl. is there a difference in the wheel size and bolt pattern between a 4 cyl and a v6????

I don't believe there is such a thing as a 2002 SE with a V6; are you sure you don't have a 2002 ES with the V6? That's what I have and it is certainly listed.

If you have a 2002 Accord, then the 4-cylinder Accords have a 4x114.3 lug pattern. The V6s have a 5x114.3 lug pattern. As for tire size, it depends on which wheels your car has. Most came with 15s, in which case one of the "correct" tire sizes is 196/65/15. There may have been other sizes too, but that is what I know of (my mom and sister both have 6th Gens with 4-cylinders).

OK, I have added pics to my Garage. It is a 5 bolt 114.3 pattern with 205/65/R15. I am still unsure if it is correct that it is an SE as everywhere I look it does not give an option for a 2002 SE V6. But based on the trim pkg, badging and pink slip it all says SE??? HELP!!

You do not have an SE, you have an ES. Granted up north of the border they may have called it a Special Edition, but you still have an ES.

I stand corrected! Thank you for the clarification, I have no idea why everything lists it as an SE. I appreciate your help with this. Must be a Canadian thing, lol

Majestic lists an "SE" for 2002 but it doesn't have the V6. But that's all based on US, and Honda has frequently played games with trim level badges & different engines for Canada vs. US.

Who knows...?

Fender clearances are the same for tire sizes, and you can look to see whether the wheels have 4 bolts or 5. I was pretty sure the V-6 tire size was 205/65-R15 (not 205/75).
