background
Every 2008 Honda Accord has a bolt pattern of 5x4.5 or 5 on 4.5. This means each wheel has five lugs—also referred to as bolts—which form a circle with a diameter of 4.5 inches.
If you’ve had a 2008 Honda Accord since it was new, you’ve probably already had to buy a new set of tires. If it’s about time for all-new wheels, you’ll need to find replacements that fit your vehicle’s bolt pattern—not just any set of wheels will fit. 
In this article, we’ll go over the 2008 Honda Accord’s lug pattern, including how to read it and how to measure it yourself. Let’s get you on your way to finding some new rims!

2008 Honda Accord bolt pattern

The bolt pattern on any Honda Accord made after 1990 is 5x4.5 (also expressed as 5 on 4.5). In case you’re not used to seeing bolt patterns expressed in either of these ways, we’ve broken it down for you. Here’s how to interpret a lug pattern:
# of bolts x diameter of the circle they form
So, the Honda Accord’s 5 on 4.5 bolt pattern simply means that its wheels each have five lugs, and if you drew a perfect circle intersecting each one, it would have a diameter of 4.5 inches. Now that you have that down, it’ll also be helpful to know your Accord’s stud size, wheel offset, center bore measurement, and tightening torque specifications.
  • Factory wheel size: 15”, 16”, 17”, 18” 
  • Stud size: M12 x 1.5
  • Offset: 38 to 55 
  • Center bore: 64.1 mm
  • Wheel tightening torque: 108 Nm

How to measure your Honda Accord’s bolt pattern

Curious how to measure a
Honda
bolt pattern yourself? Once you know the trick, you’ll be able to figure out the bolt pattern of any car! Here’s how to go about it.
First of all, you’ll need a measuring tape or ruler. Now go over to one of your wheels and pick one bolt. Measure from the outer edge of that bolt to the center of one of the two bolts opposite it. We measure the extra radius of the bolt because no two bolts in a five-bolt pattern are directly across from each other.
Now that you’ve got your measurement, you can plug this into your bolt pattern expression as the second number, with the number of lugs being the first number. If you have an even number of bolts on a different car’s wheels, you can do the same by measuring from the center of one opposing bolt to the other.
