Default 2004 Honda Accord Tire change question?

I have the 2004 Accord sedan. I want to replace the stock 205 60 16 tires with 225 60 16.

Can someone please tell me if this is possible. I dont want to damage the car but i have the tires sitting so im wondering if they will work .

Thanks in advance for your help.

the new tire is 2 mm or .787402 inches. that means it needs less than a half inch MORE clearance to fit. which is about the width of your finger. more cars from the factory give more clearance. go check it out. lock to lock. it should fit as long as you don't go taller and wider. when you start doing drastic changes on both then you start rubbing in a hurry.

Hi not advisable for a few reasons. Firstly by increasing the o.d overall diameter of the wheel you will cause your Speedo to give an inacurate reading. Secondly your rim width will be slightly too narrow thus causing the tire to wear unnaturally. And finally by putting on a bigger size you will under power the vehicle although only a little.

Bottom line is the manufacturer at Honda specifically designed your car for the that size. If you were to alter the tire size you must change the aspec ratio in order to give you the same o.d (overall diameter) also you would need to check your load index and speed rating of the tire you want to fit. Hope this helps

Its doable, and wont ruin your car. During the life of the tire you will notice cupping(center bulges very slightly) which will shorten tire life depending on how you drive, maybe 5000 miles or so. Safety wise its ok
