Honda Accord Gets Giant Truck Wheels, Looks Silly, But Somehow Works

Say you have an old Honda Accord and you’re looking to do something interesting with it, like strapping on a set of ultra large truck wheels without lifting the suspension. Well, here’s what that looks like.

This mod comes courtesy of the Bug Bmx YouTube channel, and as you can see, the wheels were mounted laterally so as to still allow the car to turn naturally, without any additional work done to the wheel wells.

The first step was to weld wheel spacers onto the Honda, while also using long metal tubes for sufficient separation between the bodywork and the truck wheels. After mounting the rear wheels, the Accord was taken out for a quick test spin – which proved that it could still be maneuvered using its factory wheels at the front.

Soon after that, the truck wheels were mounted to the front, and the car was slowly backed out of the garage for yet another test which showed that further maintenance work was required on the lug nuts.

Eventually, the guys who mounted the wheels did manage to do some light off-roading with the car, although it was pretty clear that the Accord didn’t have enough power or torque so as to confidently tackle obstacles that wouldn’t normally bother a pickup truck.

All things considered, we’re just surprised the whole thing held together.

    Not sure how why they think that car is 7000lbs, it’s like 3 and a half at most.

      How heavy are those wheels

      • TheAmerican2point0

        Not heavy enough to make that car 7000 lbs.

        • KAG25

          well that isn’t really a answer. just repeating

  • TheAmerican2point0

    Saw a picture of this the other day. I honestly thought that someone put wheels next to it as a joke “just imagine these on this car”

  • KAG25

    that does not look safe

  • Scott K

    Listened to the first five seconds and turned it off. Annoying.

  • brn

    I get all the criticism, but it was about messing around. Looks like fun, so more power to ’em.

  • karmat

    I can’t believe that worked. Must’ve done a really good welding job.

  • Ilbirs

    I consider this a very graphic and pratical explanation about why we must put aside this fetish for big wheels and come back to those times we were fine with everything from 13 to 15 and appreciate the fact that these wheels didn’t require so large wheel wells that eat some good space and are one of the reasons why we are seeing cars becoming bloated things that don’t revert the dimensional increase outside into roominess inside.

    Gotta say that’s pretty cool…not practical….but cool.
