    Question Will 2005 Civic hybrid wheels look good on Accord ?

    So today I got a flat tire so I looked around and somebody selling a set of 2005 Civic wheels with 185/70r14 tires. I know this is slightly bigger than stock (14" vs 13" stock) but what the heck it should fit. One thing I am just not sure if it looks good on my Accord. So I attached 3 photos - first 2 are the 2005 Civic wheels and the car, last pic is the original Accord and mine is stock like this (grey with factory wheels).

    What do ya think ? Will the Civic wheels looks good ? I don't have to buy them and I can just get a new tire to replace the flat (beyond repair) but I think why not ask for opinion first. Thanks.

    I don't think they look good on the Civic, much less the Accord. If you like them though, don't worry about me.

    I typed my reply yesterday but didn't save....anyway, feel the same that Civic wheels will not looking good on the Accord. Found another set someone is selling stock steel wheels with same tire size I need 185/70/r13. Cheaper and may be an option. See attached pics. What do you think ?

    Yes definitely retro, but just not sure if this retro look will match our 3rd gen Accord.

    I finally decided to go stock, bought a 185/70-13 to replace the flat tire. Took me a while to find the tire cause not a lot of places selling this small size.
