Rim is a 98 v6 Accord with offset +55

My car is a 2003 Camry with offset +45

I know the lug pattern is the same, will the difference in offset cause me problems with ANY thing???

Thanks.......

Hubcentric

Oh yeah one more thing, I am a Tool Maker/Machinist so I intend to make my own Hubcentric rings, so I know about the difference with the hubs already..........just do not know about the offset set up ??

A bigger offset will cause your tires to stick out further than your fenders. They also will start to rub on your fenders, along with shortening your turning radius.

err, I think more offset makes the wheel sink further into the well, rubbing suspension components. Tha'ts why they make wheel spacers..
maybe I'm wrong

Wheel spacers are a cheap way for people to buy small offset wheels and make them stick out.

You got it backwards.

Lower offset = more it sticks out. IE: Closer to fender

Higher offset = sits more inside the wheel well.

V6on the accord maybe?
rgr that, dylansdad stated that his was a v6 accord...which sports the 5lugs unlike the 4bangers

and like jackfrost said, you'd prolly end up rubbing suspension components but you can't be sure till the wheel's actually on there...spacers are the way to go if you get the right ones

Spacers are a cheap fix. Not a smart way to go. It would be much better to just get wheels that fit :)

"As for spacers, 99% of them are not made properly. They are just thin pieces of metal with multiple bolt patterns drilled in. They have two main problems:

1. do not ensure sufficient lug-to-stud thread engagement; and
2. do not replicate the vehicle's hub for proper centering of the wheel.

Only use PROPER spacers that address these two problems."

from spectrabluecam's great thread of tire info...http://www.toyotanation.com/forum/showthread.php?s=&threadid=15167

so i stick with my "if you get the right ones" statement
