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.
