    Not too worried if the wheels are less than perfect, but the tyres need to have reasonable tread (≥4mm) and not be a budget Chinese type. Must fit a 7th Generation Accord. Can collect if in the West Midlands area, or could discuss delivery costs.

    Or I'd also be interested in a pair/three of the five-spoke 16" wheels fitted as standard to a 2004 sport Accord.

    Yes, after phoning the seller I drive over to Bartley Green last night and collected them... Not really 'excellent', but the wheels are much better than my originals and the tyres look quite reasonable.

    They're actually the exact same Civic wheels as my winter set, so I know they'll look good on the Accord. The offset is a little wrong, meaning that they stick out around 25mm more than intended but (in my opinion) that does look a little better.

    No, I'll probably just keep the Civic ones on indefinitely.... I don't find those original 5-spoke 16" stock Accord wheels particularly appealing and I don't want to be spending any more money on an old car than is absolutely necessary!

    I've been out in the rain this morning to fit the new wheels and it's really tidied up the car (the old wheels were desperately bad to look at, as well as the tyres all being below 2mm). And there didn't seem to be any balance issues when I went out for a drive, although I only got up to 65 MPH.

    I'll be giving away a couple of the old wheels for people to use as spares. One has a puncture (in the centre of tread, so is repairable) and another one needs the bead resealing (only stays up for a few days, but I don't think it's a puncture) but both have legal tread and the wheels run true. If anyone wants one of these then PM me.

    Did you take any photos of them on your car? :Smile:
    Might be best to put this superb offer in the Marketplace with a couple of photos of the said wheels?

    @Zebster should I close this thread as you have got the wheels now? You can create a new one for the wheels you will be offering.
    let me know

    Wow these look great. I think they were standard EP2 Sport .. looking at the brochure these are only referred to as Type-S/Sport wheels. You should add these photos to your club garage too.. the only pic looks lonely :Smile:

    took the liberty of adjusting the colours of your photos tiny bit :Smile: hope you don't mind
