Greeting,

Just replaced my 2001 Ody (191K miles) with a 2011 Ody .

Does anyone know if I can use my 2001 Snow tires on 2011?

Thank you
KC

They are not 10 years old are they? You are just referring to the tire size of a 2001 to a 2011, right?

Aside from (most likely) incompatible tire size with the 2011, a 2001 snow tire is most likely cracked and will no longer be pliable to be able to be safe in the snow.

Spend the extra $700-$750 on a set of winter tires and steelies and that will give you a piece of mind.

I personally use the Toyo Observe G2.

The snow tires are mounted on a set of wheel which were used on my 2001 Ody.
Those tires are less than 3years old and 3K miles on them.

So I am wondering if those wheel fit my 2011 Ody.

Thank you

They will not work. The 2011 Odyssey has 17 and 18 inch rims with TPMS. The 2001 has 16 rims. Not even sure of the bolt pattern also.

For additional information...

2011 Tire Sizes
LX/EX/EX-L = 235 / 65 R17 103T
Touring/Elite = 235 / 60 R18 102T

According to dicountedwheelwarehouse.com:
2001 Honda Odyssey 5 lug 4.5 inch or 114.3mm High Positive Offset
2011 Honda Odyssey 5 lug 4.72 inch or 120mm High Positive Offset

If this is true, then no, the wheels won't fit. Looks like 2005+ have the 5x120mm bolt pattern. 1995-2004 have 5x114mm.

has anyone tried 05-10 oem Odyssey rims on a 2011 yet? any issues? Would like to get some for a winter set if I don't find a 2011 new takeoff set.

The bolt pattern appears to be the same for 2005-2010 and 2011. However, 2005-2010 had used 16" rims also, I believe. The smaller diameter may or may not work with 2011 brakes. But, this should be the only reason it wouldn't work. So, if there is enough diameter space to clear the brake caliper, brake lines, etc. then it should be fine, but I don't know if this is the case. A 17" 2005-2010 rim, if it exists, would likely work. Also brought up earlier, is you have to account for TPMS sensors somehow.

the rim I'm interested in is the 09/10 Touring 17" 5-spoke. TPMS issue sounds like constant reprogramming for each time you swap, so probably will not worry about that and just pull the fuse and deal with warning message for ~3 months or so of winter wheel use.

If you don't get the tpms programmed, VSA light will stay on the whole time, meaning that it will be OFF till it's programmed.

And those rims are probably hard to find at low price, so if I were you, I would try pilot/ridgeline rims.

Yes I could be wrong. But it wouldn't make sense since your vsa light will stay lit the whole time when your tpms aren't programmed. The vsa light on comes on when it's disabled. But if the manual states that it doesn't, then I might be wrong :)
