Will 15" Accord rims fit on my element?

The car has 16" rims right now. I want smaller ones for snow tires.

Are there just one size 15" rim honda makes, or are there different widths?

Thanks
Eli

I think Empire has 15" wheels -- not sure -- somebody on here does. I thought the Accord wheels were 4 Lug, not 5 like the Element.

Nope not me, I thought of trying it but so far I'm still on an aftermarket set of 16's with chunkier tires.

I purchased 2004 Accord V6 15" wheels to mount Bridgestone M/T tires , for my 04 EX AWD. They are black steel with 20 holes. I also purchased center caps and new lug nuts. The alloy lug nuts will not hold the center caps on. The tires are 225/??/15, no clearance problems. The tires do make a lot of noise. I just run them from Oct to Jan for hunting season.

225/75/15 is less than 2% larger than stock. As long as the rims clear the brakes, these tires should work fine. The next step up, 235/75/15 is perhaps the most common pickup tire size (and less than 4% larger than stock, similar to 235/70/16).
