What rim offset and tire size are you planning on?

225/45 tire size offset would probably be +35 along with a spacer but not sure what size.

I'm almost certain 225/45 R17s mounted on the wheel setup you want will rub on the fenders and at full steering lock. If you're okay with doing a fender roll then you'll probably be okay as long as you stay away from full steering lock when parking and such.

You probably wouldn't rub, unless you are lowered quite a bit. I would run a 215/45 on a 7" wide wheel though. It will fit better.

And everything else will fit fine. 17x7 +35 is a pretty conservative setup.

FWIW, I checked a couple of sites and 225/45 R17 tires wrapped around 17x7.5 wheels are predicted to rub with no lowering (which will simply make the issue worse) when mounted on a Gen 6 Accord.

For my part I'm considering 215/50 R17s on 17x7.5 wheels with a 50mm offset and 6.18" back spacing and even though these are narrower than the 225s proposed by Droopy187, TireRack says, "215/50-17 tires have very rounded sidewalls and may require a rear fender lip roll. There isn't a better size to use in 17" to have the correct height. "

alright guys thanks so far for all of the information. i am debating on rims between the xxr 962 (17x7) and now the enkie 92 (15x7) with low pro tire (not too low) offset for those seem to be 38 but overall i dont want to do too much work on my car so i would like to know what would be the easiest set up should i go about for my 99 accord and overall have a nice look to it. thanks guys

With the 15s, you will have to run a HUGE tire to make up for the smaller diameter......your stock wheel size are 15s, so the tires you'd need would be almost the same size. Get the 17s. If you went 215/45, you should be fine. Slightly smaller tire, but still one of the recommended sizes for 7" wide wheels.

If you are not lowered, your chances of rubbing are much less. Install the wheels, and just drive carefully the first couple of days. The only place you will probably rub is at full wheel lock......if that is the case, get your fenders rolled. It costs less than $100 if you shop around, and is well worth it for the extra security.
