Default Can an 05 honda accord coupe handle 18 inch rims with tire size 235/50/18 ?

Im looking to purchase rims from someone, they are 18 inch rims with a tire size of 235/50/18. I know the car can handle 225/40/18 as I have that size currently. Will my car be able to handle this slightly larger size?

I have a 2007 Accord with 235/40-18's, and there is still room for taller tires. Shouldn't be a problem. Your speedo will be off a little though.

Both of those tire sizes are incorrect for this application, the ones you are running now dangerously so. Whoever sold you those should be drawn and quartered for their lack of professional knowledge.

A tire sized 235/40R18 91W would be a proper choice.
