#1: Having wheel fit problems - 2004 Accord EX V6

Posted on 2005-01-04 18:34:52 by Custers

Hi folks! I need some help that I can't find online (even at Tire Rack) or
by Googling. I want to put winter tires (mounted on an extra set of rims)
on my 2004 Accord EX V-6. The stock rims are 16x6.5. I recently bought a
set of alloy rims (same size) that came off a 2003 Acura RSX. They already
have the winter tires mounted on them. Thought I had it made until I
mounted them on the car and quickly discovered that these rims do not have
enough offset to clear the brake calipers. Prior to finding these extra
alloy rims with almost-new winter tires on them, I had bought a set of steel
rims (thinking I would have to shell out more $$$ for a new set of winter
tires).

Anyway, I'm stuck with a set of alloys that won't fit, and wonder if the
steel rims will fit - before I go through the hassle of dismounting and
remounting the tires on the steel rims. Here are the numbers and markings
off each rim:

Stock alloys:
16 x 6.5 JJ 55 (SDB 665A)

Acura alloys that don't fit:
16 x 6.5 JJ 45 (S6M-665A)

Steel rims:
16 x 6.5 JJ 26 (CMC 04/1 YK12)

Will the 205/60R16 tires mounted on the steel rims clear the suspension?

Can someone please help? Thanks in advance.....

Since the steel rims have much less offset than the Acura's, it seems
likely you will have a clearance problem. But steel wheels are thinner
than aluminum wheels, so why not try fitting the steel wheel, without
mounting a tire to it?

The other issue here is that changing the offset will change the load
on your wheel bearings. That could cause premature bearing failure.

I think you are going to have to mount one tire on one of the steel rims
and actually try it on your Accord (both front and rear) to find out for
sure. I sympathize with you--if asked, without doing any research I
would have put money on the Accure rims fitting the Accord properly. I
guess the numbers tell the story. Good Luck.
