Yes, they should work fine. I assume you are switching the same tires from the Honda wheels to the Acura wheels, or are you changing tires also?

Are you sure the backspacing is okay? Are they going to stick out the same or more? I am worried about brake caliper clearance. 2008 went to a different size wheel because of this. And can I use the Michelin's that came stock on the car? They are 225/50/17? Thanks for your help. I have posted on so many sights like Acurazine and nobody will help me.

Just so people are aware the wheels fit absolutely perfect. Anyone interested in the amazing deal I got from Acura let me know. These wheels generally sell from Acura for 1,500 to 1,800.

I have a 2008 Accord EXL V6 sedan. I want to change out the headlights, and fog lights to the new Sylvania Ultra bulbs. Do they make them for both the headlights and fog lights? And if so, what are the bulb numbers?

Hey I was gone for spring break and couldn't respond to your question about the wheels, but I am glad to hear they worked out! I bet they look sharp.
Cannot help you on the lights, though.
Good luck! I have an 08 6spd Accord coupe with aftermarket wheels/tires.

Just so people know the new TL wheels will not fit a 2008 or above accord. They are now a 5x120 bolt pattern.

My wife did not like the seat comfort and low driving position. I got the seat back off and did some work that took care of the bulge in lower back part of the seat, but the seat never felt quite right. We bought a Lexus RX330.
Paid $22,500 new and sold it 15 months 9K miles later for $20,500. While Accord has the sharpest exterior ( heavily borrowed from BMW 3 and 5 series) and exceptional resale value, I would seriousley consider Mazda 6 or Nissan Altima before buying an Accord.
The seats are too narrow and Honda hasn't figured the seats right yet. I was not impressed with how the car bounced over slight highway bumpy roads with its 17" wheels and low profile tires......and that confusing transmission kept holding gears and downshifting on slight uphill driving on the only 570 highway trip we took.
Honda should benchmark Mercedes for seat contour and comfort. My 2001 E430 has the most comfortable seats of any car/truck/SUV I have ever owned.

I watched the youtube video. Every Honda I have owned has done this. I don't understand what the problem is? My current Accord is a 04 and it does it but it has 84000 problem-free miles.
