Default Does anyone know how the TPMS on the 2008 Honda Accord's will handle aftermarket wheels?

I am looking to add 20 x 8.5 on a 2008 Honda EX-L Accord Coupe, Manual Transmission. Any help or websites would be great! Thanks!

I like http://www.tirerack.com/wheels/resul...All&sort=Brand because you can see the rims on your car. As for the TPMS, you can buy new sensors http://www.tirerack.com/accessories/categories/tpms.jsp for your rims/ tires. It should be fine and work correctly with your new rims. You should probably stick with 19" rims, no wider than 8", because they'll stick out too much.

First off, those rims are far to wide to fit correctly on an Accord. Widest you should go for a 20inch rim is 7.5. Any larger will cause major rubbing issues.As for the TPMS, you can buy aftermarket sensors to mount to most rims, but you will need to reset the TPMS to the tire pressure of the new tires.

make sure that you check with Honda, since some aftermarket wheels may affect your factory warranty.

So far not well. I just put on my aftermarket wheels purchased from the Tire Rack. They came with TPMS, and I knew beforehand that a reset would be involved. The cost at the dealership is almost $200.00! I have not had the reset done yet, but there must be a less expensive way to do this. I have a 2008 EX-L V6 Sedan. Any information would be appreciated.
