Hi theStig,
Last week, I depaxed my 07 Touring with 2020 Odyssey stock wheels 235-60-18 and Firestone tires.
The wheels look good and the ride feels a lot smoother than the original touring tires.
Took a 240 mile trip this weekend and it worked fine, no issues so far (fingers crossed).
But I believe, with the larger heavier tires fuel economy will take a small hit and also acceleration on the highway.
Good luck with the depaxing :)
It shouldn't have a negative affect, on actual fuel economy or acceleration and in fact will probably help - the PAX system wheels are heavier than conventional wheels.

Your wheel / tire configuration has a larger diameter than what was on the car originally though, and so you will travel ~3.8% further than what the odometer reads (~103.8 miles for every 100 registered by the odometer) and thus you would need to adjust the miles traveled to calculate the actual fuel economy.

Thanks BertS.
I need to purchase the spare tire for this. Do I have to by the spare for the original 2007 touring wheel and tire spec or that will match the new ody 2020 wheels and tires? I am a little confused about this.
Thanks

Good question. I Depaxed using 16" wheels and 235/65 R16 tires so my overall diameter didn't change. I found a spare from a GEN 3 at a junk yard and paid about $35 for it. You likely will need to do the same simply so it will fit in the spare tire storage location.

The GEN 3 spare is a T135/80d17 and GEN 4 and 5 use a T165/80d17 which is about 1.2" wider and has a 1.9" larger diameter (27.4" vs 25.5"). I've never looked at it, but I'm pretty sure the larger GEN 4/5 spare won't fit in your storage location.

Hopefully there aren't negative implications of having an extra inch difference in diameter (3.5" vs. 2.5") between the GEN 3 spare and your normal tires.

How are they working out?
I'm currently looking a set for my 06 touring I found a set of 2019 and 2020 takeoffs and same tire size, did u reuse the sensors from the touring or the ones from the new wheels?
235/60/18 Bridgestone sensors included.

Tire size sounds perfect. Have the tire shop retain the existing TPMS sensors and use them.

Hello everyone,
Trying to depax my 08 touring as least expensive way as the value of the van is not much anymore.
I need to know what size/type rims I can use for depax
Also the size of tire depending on the rims size.
Thank you all for your help

Well I finally depaxed my baby today
06 touring replaced with 2019 18 inch odyssey rims and new tires. 235/55/r18 $1136 in total for everything, the only concern I have now is I get a growl when braking downhill and my brakes squeal every time I press on em, I'm going to take the wheel off tomorrow and look around the area to see what that noise is, any ideas? Maybe the overtorqued the lug nuts? Bad part was used to old rims and tires that now they're noticeable with new tires? Your response is appreciated,
Below are some pics of the new member of the depaxed club.

Ordered a set of wheels and tires thru tirerack on Saturday. They just called and refused to sell them to me. He said the tires were not able to handle the load for a Ridgeline. I told him it was a custom project I was working on and he stated that it was a liability for them to have em out there "with their name on em"

which tires did you get? our vans need certain load index when it comes to tires, I usually get 105 which is 2000lb per tires load limit, change your tire selection and try again?

I had a similar issue when I Depaxed with Tires and Wheels from Discount Tire.

PAX tires have a load rating of 104, and they wouldn't sell me 17" wheels and 235/60 R17 tires because the load rating was 102, even though it should have been fine, and in fact was the wheel / tire size and load rating for Non-PAX Tourings starting in 2008 (I didn't know this at the time).

They would sell me 235/65 R16 with 16" wheels having a 103 load rating. They would also sell me 235/65 R17 tires (think load rating was 104), but having the same height of sidewall defeats the purpose of larger wheels in my view and would cause the speedometer / odometer to be inaccurate.

While I would have liked the 17" wheels, I went with the 16" wheels and 235/65 R16 General Altimax RT43 tires which actually saved me some money and I'm happy with results.

It would be good to know what wheels / tires were available for the Ridgeline and the load rating required.

If it is for an Odyssey you are Depaxing you might want to say it is an EX-L since they didn't come with PAX, or say it is for a Non-PAX 2008 Touring (PAX became optional that year).
