Do you have stock rims or aftermarket? More info is needed in our for us to help you.

Edit: For stock, you need 195/60-15 if you have an EX and 185/65-15 if you have an LX. If you upgraded to 16" rims, you'll need 205/50-16, 17s need 205/45-17.

The original tire specification from the manufacturer for 1996 Honda Accord is 195 60R 15, where 195 is the width of the tire, 60 is the height of the tire, R simply stands for a radial tire and 15 is the tire size for the rim you need for it to fit on. It's important for you to match up the tire size with the same rim size. You never want to try and fit on an 18 inch tire on a 17 inch rim.

Owing to higher risk of having an accident because of the incorrect tire size, automobile experts generally recommends using tires that meets manufacture specifications. Also, it ensures maximum life out of your car when you stick to these specifications.
