    load rating for rim?? (not tire)

    Is there such thing?
    I know that there has been some discussion about load rating in depax threads so I know there are load rating for tires. Then saw some people worry about load rating (or load capacity whatever) of certain rim (not tire).

    I googled about it but couldn't find anything about it.

    Is there such thing like rim's load capacity?

    Same boat here. Read some posts about members who voiced concerns that certain rims from cars, e.g. BMW, may not be able to handle the Ody's load capacity.

    I am confused about this, because I know some members have rims from the Acura RL on their Ody. So what make the RL rims okay to use on the Ody while some BMW rims are not...

    How does one make sure the rim is suited for weight load of a minivan?

    I am eying a rim that's 17 x 8, but worried it may not be suited for the Ody now.

    Hello Thelinux,

    Yes, there is a rating for the rim.

    You will have to find the rim manufacturer for that information.

    When I replaced my rims I asked, and the rating for the rim I choose was higher than the maximum gross axle load for the Odyssey by about 50%, if I remember correctly.

    So you called the manufacturer and asked about it?

    Exactly. I am concerned about RL or TL rims too. Maybe those who sells depax kits on this board can chime in? I see that some of their kits uses TL or RL rims. Wondering if they've done any research about it.

    Hello Thelinux,

    No, the tire dealer I bought the rims from had the specification in their catalog.

    Hi. Got my answer...called the manufacturer. He said load per wheel is 1600 x 4 = 6400. Ody's GVWR is 5952, so all good.

    I'll probably pull the trigger once I get my tax refund. :-)

    Good luck with your search.

    Mindoro, were you looking at any BMW wheels? What wheel were you looking at?

    Janikphoto,

    No. Was looking at Momo Strike. Offset for the 17 x 7 is only 38mm however.

    I just De-PAX my MY06 Touring in Taiwan. The rim I got is for BMW 3 series ((E36/E46/E90) with following specification:
    5 Holes x PCD 120 mm
    ET +35 mm
    18" x 8" (width)
    This rim fit on Toyo Open Country H/T 235/55R18 is just match the body and chassis.

    When I search for the rim, loading capacity (load rating) also bothering me. Most of the after market rims are rated at 690 kgs (1520 Lb) load for 18x8, only few of them has 790 kgs (1740 Lb) or even 850 kgs (1872 Lb) load rating.

    Anyhow, since there is no any Acura rim available in Taiwan, I forced to take the 690 kgs load rim with 100 load index (800 kgs) tires.

    This is after market wheels, not the original BMW.

    No problem for fender, suspension or brake clamp. It just match cause the OD only 6 mm larger than the original PAXm tire (716 to 710 mm).

    My solution to rim upgrade

    My original Honda Rims had some bad cosmetic spiderwebs of corrosion under the clear. I have decided to make them my winter rims. I toyed with many rim upgrade solutions from BMW or aftermarket conversions. The size of the center ring, the bolt pattern, offset and calper clearance were obsticles I had to work around. I also wanted to maintain the load ratings of both wheels & tires. My solution was to go mildly from 236 65 16 to 235 60 17. This helped ensure clearances and made it easier to find load rated solutions. The tires were a pretty easy choice: Cooper CS4 Touring ... Load rated 102 vs the OEM 103's. The rims took much longer to decide on, but I feel I have made a good choice. MOMO Silver Strike. Very reasonable purchase price, I relied on information posted here re load ratings, and with new lug nuts & HubCentric rings I did the install. The offset is 38 vs 45 for OEM, they do stick out further and give it a nice stance - no clearance issues. To some people's dismay I did not install TPMS, I will look at the in the future. For now I just check my pressure routinely. With new tires & rims installed.. I set out for an epic 4000 mile journey from Canada to Talladega Alabama. We had four adults and the assorted luggage and camping stuff. There were no rubs, or any tire related issues during the trip... It did have me concerned by times with some of the winter heaves stressing the suspension to max.. All worked as expected. Any changes from fully satisfactory, I will post here, but I don't anticipate any.
