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.
