Won't work...
  • Accord has a smaller bolt pattern - you need 5x120mm
  • Tires profile should be 55 series for correct height for speedo, comfort, and safety (IMHO)
  • Accord wheels may not have the load rating for the weight of the van
  • Tires will have the correct load rating for the weight of the van
  • Tire sensors are not compatible with the 3G Odyssey
BEST CHOICES are to go with any later Odyssey, MDX, Ridgeline, or Pilot wheel, new TPMS, and the 235/55-18 tire with load range 102+ (104 for Touring models as per Americas Tire, because that is what the PAX load rating was) for an easy and confident swap. Figure on spending 1200-1600 in total.

Got myself some nice RLX Hybrid wheels, 19x8 50 offset.

I am going to buy Schrader 28981 TPMS to save a few bucks.

My tire size dilemma is as follow:

245/45R19 1.5% smaller, spin 1.5% faster. Speedometer is almost the same.

245/50R19 1.9% larger, spin 1.9% slower. Speedometer is a tad faster.

255/45R19 0.2% smaller, spin 0.1% faster. Speedometer is a tenth to exact match.

At the moment, I am going with 255/45R19 because it fits the best on technical specs. But the OP indicated that 255/55R18 45 offset will result some rubbing. I also saw people are using 255/45R19 8.5 45 offset without any issue. I expect I won't run into any issue with me going 255/45R19 8.0 50 offset.

Looks nice. One thing to keep in mind is a 255 wide tire is usually out of spec for an 8 inch width wheel. Check the tire manufacturer though. Also, many run wider tires than recommended by tire manufacturer, including me on occasion but something to add to the calculus.

That photo has 2010-2013 Acura MDX Advance wheels with 255/45R19 8.5 45 offset. It is not mine. :)

I have not converted mine yet. I just got wheels delivered, waiting for the lugnuts, and still deciding about tpms schrader 28981 or genuine oem. I think 8 inch width is the minimum for 255.

Nice Nzone. I just put a set or LR discovery 18" rims with 255/55 tires on my 06. Sometimes slight rub at full lock, not always, and back tire rub over big dips or bumps. I'm going to add 5mm spacers to the front and I think that will take care of that lock rub and spring spacers on the back for now. Springs are old and sagging a little. But I love the way it looks and drives.

Just completed the depaxing. The tires are Bridgestone Turanza Quietrack 255/45R19 104 load. The rims are from 2016 Acura RLX Hybrid Sport. And TPMS is Schrader 28981.

I thought the 45 tires would be rough absorbing imperfected road, but the tires handle superbly and way better than the PAX tires. It is comfortable and very quiet. I think this is attributed to the quality of Bridgestone Turanza Quietrack. Thankfully, the rims fit - almost I would say. It is barely cleared the front calipers, about 1/2 inch clearance. The rear has as much clearance from the suspension arm. Also, there is no rubbing when turning the steering all the way.

I know I'm late to the party but maybe someone can give me some quick answers, I have an 06 odyssey touring with run flat tires. I want to depax that baby. Around how much will it cost and what rims and tires have yall had that fit perfect as well as smooth ride, so I can start seeing how much debt I'm getting myself into, your response is appreciated.

Total costs is depending on how you are willing to spend. My swap over:

  • Bridgestone Turanza Quiettrack 255/45R19 $316 each.
  • 2016 Acura RLX Hybrid 19" wheels, $700 plus $50 shipping from eBay.
-Schrader TPMS about $40 each.

Perfect fit are wheels with 5x120 50-offset. I think all newer Odyssey wheels are 5x120 50-offset and so does Acura RLX 2014+.

All Acura MDX 2007-2013 wheels are 5x120 45-offset. These will stick out a little. You may be limited to 235 tires.

When selecting wheels and tires, try to keep the overall tire circumference the same as OEM 28" so the speedometer reads the same.

Ok If I go for the 07-13 rims can I reuse the same tpms from my honda? Also even if they stick out do I have to modify or install something else so they can fit? And the tire brand I'm not really going fancy I just prefer to have a rim with a normal tire. I appreciate your response

I am not so certain about the tpms compatibility with the MDX wheels. You will have to pay tire shop to get them out. I recommend you buy new ones instead because the ones in the runflats are at the end of their lifespan anyway.

You don't have to modify anything for the MDX wheels to fit. You will just have to use 235 tires, but some have tried 255 with successed and some said some rubbing occured. Make sure the tire weight is at least 102+

You can buy used mdx rims, just make it is good condition. I dont trust the refurbished or the remanufactured ones though. Check the classified section here, I think someone has mdx rims for sale.

If you go with oem tpms, check beginning of this thread to verify the model number. The Schrader 28981 fits, save you some $$ and it works.

Hey goodmorning nzone, I also forgot to ask, u mentioned that the newer odyssey rims would fit on the touring? Can u specify the year compatible? I'm trying to find some acura rims but no luck, decided to see if other rims fit. Thanks again.

Yeah the RLX wheels are hard to find. I was lucky to find a set from a take-offs, brand new basically, for cheap.

I believe all Odyssey from 2005-2019 have 5x120 50-offset, 64.1mm center bore and M14×1.5 thread size. Check this website, you can select make and model and year to see the fitment guide www.wheel-size.com. You have to check the tire height because the wheelwell maybe slightly different from model year to model year. For example, on a newer model year, the tire comes standard with 235/60R18 vs 235/55R18 (2006).

Oh, make sure you buy new lugnuts for the new rims because the existing lugnuts are not compatible. It is cheap from ebay, get the oem ones.

Hey nzone happy new year. I had a question about the lug nuts, the ones that come with the pax rims cant be used on the regular rims? And by any chance do u have the p/n for the lug nuts that would fit after getting depaxed? And I found some rims if u can take a look and see if they would work? The guy selling them said he had em on a 07 odyssey ex-l but idk if that's different from my 06 odyssey touring model. Your response is appreciated.Check out this 19” Rim for Sale for $200 on OfferUp https://offerup.co/baNmhnKhV2

Those rims are aftermarket so I don't know what to tell you. As for lugnut, when you found Acura/Honda rims you can search for matching lugnuts through Acura/Honda online dealers such bernardiparts.com, but don't buy through them. Ebay sellers sell 20 for $15-20. If you go with aftermarket rims, you need to follow the rim manufacturer recommended lugnut.
