Tire rack also lists tire diameters and revs per mile for the tires they sell.

So if i put on a larger tire than stock, the odometer would be counting more miles than actually driven?

Less miles actually. The larger tire will have less revolutions per mile, so your speedo will read slower and your mileage will be lower too.

Here's a question for all of you with 4 cylinder accords with tl rims. Did you notice any acceleration difference or fuel mileage decrease with a heavier rim and wider tire? I would have to get a 245/45/17 tire to keep the speedo the same. Thats a big increase in tire compared to my stock 205/60/16. I drive about 3k miles a month. About half city half highway. Did i mention i have an auto trans?, so its already sluggish. Will i feel a noticeable decrease in acceleration? Will i feel any handling improvement with the wider tire? Also, my car is completely stock. My stock rims are beat to hell and my tires need replacing, so im looking for new ones.  Any feedback is appreciated.

I'd go with a 235/45/17 instead.  The speedo difference is negligible.
