Default 05' Accord and 17" Rims

I was thinking about getting some 17's. Does the computer have to be reset or do any adjustments need to be made?

It's not the rim size but the overall diameter of the tire. If the tires
you put on the new rim match what was there, no adjustment needed.

Oh yeah, I forgot to tell you that the car came with 15" tires. So I am
sssuming adjustments must be made. How do I go about doing this?

they look cool, but unless you drive on glass, the lower profile tires
necessary to keep wheel diameter make them more easily dented on pot
holes. i'd consider keeping stock and spending the money on decent
rubber instead.

You don't drive on the rim. The rim size means NOTHING. As Seth
pointed out in an earlier post, it is the overal diameter of the tire
that matters.

bob z.
p.s. check this site so you can see for yourself how tire O.D. is what
matters:

You don't have 15" tires. You have tires that sit on a 15" rim and have an
outside diameter larger than 15". It's that outside diameter that counts.
You could put on a 9"rim and if the tire has the same outside diameter
nothing will have to be changed or adjusted.

Well, you know I meant rims. I was thinking about wider tires also. Would
that be much of a problem? See, I see most newer cars or a higher price
seem to come with 17" wheels and I would like to get into that territory. I
would like to improve the wheels and tires in many ways. I am not going all
out as far as expsenisve rims, I am just keeping it in the $400-$500 range.
The tires will be what they will be.

It's only a problem if you make it a problem.

Once again and for the last time, what issue you have will be how the
overall outside dimensions differ from stock. 15", 14". 12" or 17" rims,
don't matter. Measure or find out what your current tire dimensions are and
go from there.

How much wider you go will not affect the speedo, but could cause rubbing on
turns and limit how far you can go lock to lock.

No one can say anything with regards to what problems or issues you might
have as you've given no relevant numbers. You're caught up in rim size.
Great if you're a rapper or gang-banger, but the rest of us look at the
overall picture and what we're trying to accomplish. Larger rim with lower
profile tire is better performance, looks KEWL, and is a LESS comfortable
ride.
