Default What size rims can I fit on my Honda?

I am about to buy a 1997 Honda Accord and I really wanted to put 18 inch rims on it, until my cousin told me if i were to do that, i would either 1) spend a lot of money on lowering or raising the car or 2) it would scrap on the floor if anyone would sit in the back. The car is a 1997 Honda Accord EX 4 door front wheel drive. Also any body kit suggestions? Thanks!!

Putting rims on your car will have no affect on how your car will sit. Your car might scrape on the ground if you have a lot of weight in the back due to the age of your shocks... You can put 18's on if you want, however your money will be going into your tires. The lower the profile the more expensive the tire.

Also your ride will be less comfortable due to the low profile.

Hope this helps, I used to work at a tire shop for 2 years and we did this all the time.
