    HI guys, much debate I suspect on this already.

    I have the 17" grey wheels on my silver one. They are nice but road noise is a bit high. only got budget tyres on as yet and not changed. Jingyu. I guess better tyres would hlep.

    However I've read the ride can be improved by fitting 16" ones - any truth in that? I do like the 17" later wheels though, the sedici ones.

    Cheers guys and dolls.

    The 7th gem does drive a lot better on 16's in my opinion.

    I have the standard 17" that came on my 6th Generation. I've driven a lot of different Accords though.

    It does really but it runs out of steam at the top end, best for daily drive it the best compromise.

    I went from 16s to 17s on my Accord. I havent found any real difference in comfort but she is more stable with 17s however it has affected consumption ever so slightly

    I've found that you have to put more effort in to keeping the car going where you want it to. 17" cause the car to tramline to the sides slightly.
