Default What size tire do I need for 2002 Honda Accord?

We are putting 18" rims on my 2002 Honda Accord Couple SE. What size tires do I need to get so that i wont have to change the speedometer gear in the transmission? Therefore, I want to keep the outside diameter the same as the original.

This website should help you figure out what size to get. You will need your current tire size information.

use the rule of 10 if it can with 15's stock on a 60 series tire . Go 3 inches up and 30 series down. so if it is 195/60/15 go 215/30/18 215 is how wide you tire is protect the lip of the rim as much as possible from curb rash... I believe your with a 5 lug on that year so your lug patten would be 5X114.3 and if it's a 4 lug its 4X114.3 not use what is the best offset you have to find that out by searching unless someone posts that for you....

It depends on how wide the rims you are getting are. http://tirerack.com has a calculator for the correct tire/rim combo.
