Default how much do my 2005 honda accord ex sedan rims weight?

Im trying to buy aftermarket 18" rims but dont want to get a super heavy rim. The ones i like are about 22lbs each but I want to compare that 22lbs to the stock weight. Also the rims width are 8.5, Do you think a 8.5" wide rims are to wide for an accord?

Yes, 8.5" rims are too wide. I have an '03 Accord EX-L with 18 x 8 aftermarket rims, and they stick out 1/2" in the front, and less than a 1/4" in the back (that's because there is a slight negative camber on my back rims, similar to some BMW's, like the X5). The weight of the 18 x 8.5 rims you like are pretty light (mine are heavier and weigh 26.6 lbs. each + 225/40/18 tires, that weigh 23lbs. each = 49.6 lbs. a wheel). The stocks weigh 18.2 lbs. each + 21 lbs. for each tire = 39.2 lbs. per each stock wheel. It's rare that a larger aftermarket rims weigh can closely compare to the stock. You might find a longer stopping distance, and a slower pick up, it all depends on the extra weight. Usually rims come in a variety of widths, if they come in 8" (or better yet, 7.5") I'd get them. I hope this info helps you, if you need more info, you can email me. Good luck!
