There are two different style lug nuts for alloy wheels. One is a tapered centering lug nut and the other has a shank and a washer. Whichever lug nut your wheel takes I wouldn't mix them up. Using the one with the washer when the tapered is required will leave you with not very much contacting surface for torquing. Using the tapered nut when the shank/washer style is needed could damage the wheels and will give the same problem as above.

I posted some information here about the different types of lug nuts:

Here she is, the newest member of the De-Paxed Club:




Tires are 18" Cooper CS5s. Much quieter then the nearly worn out Pax tires. Looking forward to seeing how they handle.

My attempt at de-paxing my (new to me) 06 Odyssey Touring

Found wheels ad tires from a 06 Odyssey (EX or EX-L - not sure from salvage yard) 5-twin spoke model - already had tpms sensors (do not know part #s) in them
From what I had read up in this forum the touring model would "automatically" read the new sensors without requiring a visit to the dealer
Initially they showed tire pressure but I think it was reading "old pax wheels" which were within 5 feet of van - later when van was moved from shop no numbers show in tire pressure - after driving about 5 miles "tpms" warning comes up
sensors were "tested" with tpms initializing tool and showed up as "active"
Did I misunderstand something about the touring model being able to "re-learn" new sensors or am I doing something wrong
Would appreciate guidance with this problem.

The Touring has a different set of sensors I believe.

put 2014 odyssey touring elite wheels with Cooper 235/55R18 CS5 ULTRA TOUR 104V tires on my 2009 EX

So just replaced my tires that I bought in 2014. The rims I bought off a 2014 which were basically new at the time. The shop told me that the tires were hard to take off because the wheels had gotten so corroded and pitted (I live in NE ohio). I don't understand how 3 year old wheel (bought 2014 touring elite wheels in 204) could corrode that fast? has anyone had similar issues? the shop had to grind down the pitting and corrosion before they put on the tires.

I have a DePax question on a 2008 Odyssey Touring. I found some 2012 Acura MDX 18" wheels. The bolt pattern is 5x120. Can I use these wheels to DePax my Odyssey?

Any suggestion would be helpful.

Thanks!

Finally depaxed.
IMG_1207.jpg

Used
- 17 inch TSW Bristol - The 35 offset causes the wheels to stick out a bit, but I load tested the van and no rubbing.
- Yokohama Avid Ascend 235/60 R17 103 load index.
- TRW TPMS and junkyard spare.
- hub centric rings (not needed)
- new cone type lug nuts

Overall the process was very painful and costly. Thanks Honda!

Hi,
Depax my 06 with 18" mdx. Have question about spare tire, standard spare is 17", any of you having problem using 17" spare with regular 18" tire. Should be fine but I want to hear from y'all expert :)

TIA
I have a '07 Touring, we bought it with aftermarket wheels, TPMS works. Went to do checks prior to road trip and noticed we didn't have a spare. I quickly went to eBay and found the whole kit for $189. I was able to get my local dealer to match.

Tire Load Range Considerations when DePax'ing

Second Odyssey DePax'd using MDX Wheels

View attachment 139418

MDX vs Odyssey Comparison (255/55-18 vs 235/55-18)

View attachment 139426

Be aware that some tire stores will not rotate and balance your tires if the load range is not equal or above the OEM specification (104 for Pax tires). [Don't ask me how I know.] Eighteen inch tire choices are limited in 235-55 size and having load range 104: Cooper C5 Touring, Pirelli Scorpion Verde All Season Plus, Kumho Crugen Premium, and maybe a few others (no Michelins though). Non-touring Odysseys have loan range 103, so tire selection may be less of a problem for 17 and 16 inch sizes. I'm running Michelin Premier A/S (LR 100) for now but may change later as I may carry a maximum load when camping.

I was advised to run higher pressures than the OEM recommended 33/35 to increase the load capacity. Tirerack has a write up on this topic at Tire Specs Explained: Maximum Load.

Load Ranges at 33 PSI (from pakwheels.com)
Load Range 104 = 1832 lbs
Load Range 103 = 1788 lbs
Load Range 100 = 1636 lbs

To reach the LR 104, my LR 100 Michelins need to be inflated to nearly their recommended maximum pressure of 44 lbs. If I were to inflate them to 42 lbs I would meet the load range 104 capacity. The ride would be quite harsh however - an acceptable trade-off perhaps?

Is there a photo i'm missing?
Would an acura donut sub for my missing one? Mine was depaxed before i got it, and people seem to love the low-profile wheels... (i didn't love having one blow out on the road with no spare though).
Not sure where the attachment went... will add them again.

The most correct donut spare is from a non-Pax Odyssey 2005+. I bought mine at a salvage yard along with the mounting hardware for under $50. The bolt pattern needs to be 5x120 and later RL, TL, and MDX have that pattern along with 2005+ Odyssey, Pilots, and Ridgelines. Whatever donut you get it needs to fit into the existing Odyssey storage well. The tire size is T135-80/17.

I have 2006 Touring, I have been thinking about de-paxing. Do you think wheels from 2014 Acura TL wheels parts#
42700-TK4-A41 (18x8J) work? The original oem tires is 245/45/18.

I also have 2011 Acura MDX Advance with 19" wheels that use 255/50/19. Will these fit? If it does, I can just get a set for the MDX and reuse the 19" on the Odyssey.

Any MDX/Ridgeline/Odyssey wheel from about 2005 onward (5x120 bolt pattern) will work. I am running 18x8 MDX Sport wheels with 235-55/18 tires, which are the appropriate height tire for proper speedo reading. for 19s a 245-45/19 tire would work well. Tire reves per mile are available on tirerack.com for reference.

I am using website wheel-size.com to try to determine the correct tire size for 2013-2019 RLX wheel. They are 5x120, ET50, 19x8. What do you guy use as reference basis for 2005-2007 oem wheel, 16x7 (base model) or 235-710-460a - almost 235x55r18 (Touring model)?

If I use the base model (235x65r16) as reference, the RLX wheels with tire size 245x45r19 would fit perfectly with the same scrub radius and speedometer reading at 60km/h the actual speed will be 59.3km/h.

If I use the Touring model (235x55r18) as reference, the RLX wheels with tire size 245x50r19 would fix perfectly with the same scrub radius and speedometer reading at 60km/h the actual speed will be 61km/h.

I would prefer to use 245x50r19 as it is little thicker than 45s. Which one would use as reference?

The 245/45 is the best 19" match in Revs Per Mile for the PAX swap. for comparison purposes all the Odyssey OEM tires sizes are very, very close in diameter and RPMs.

Source: Tirerack (except for PAX)

740 RPM - Michelin Primacy PAX 245/680R460 (Odyssey Touring 2005-2010 Wheel)
739 RPM - Michelin Primacy MXM4 235/55R18 (MDX Wheel 18x8)
742 RPM - Michelin Premier A/S 235/65R16 (OEM EX/EXL Wheel)
751 RPM - Michelin Primacy MXM4 245/45R19
741 RPM - Michelin Primacy MXM4 255/45R19

Hey all, we've been following this for a while I've been researching and learning a lot, I would like to double check something.

I have found some tires locally, they are factory wheels from a 2012 Honda Accord Coupe EXL. 18”. 235/45/18 Michelin Primacy tires. TPMS sensors installed. The seller claims that the bolt pattern is 5x114.3.

Any thoughts?
