I would say 17's and 18's at most would look right. However with the price of gas nowadays remember that with more rotating mass and a bigger contact patch on the road equals more gas used to move the car.91 accord... I say keep it stock.

Go with factory size. That's the most efficient setup. If it looks on the small side for you, go +1. This means a rim that's got a 1" larger diameter, paired with a tire with a slightly lower sidewall, giving you overall diameter of the factory wheel+tire combo, with a slightly better-looking proportion.The bonus to going back to factory-diameter wheels is that your speedo and odometer will give correct readings again.
