Hello - If I order new Rim's and tires from Tire Rack but do i need to know to DePAX my 2005 Odyssey Touring. I read somewhere else to just selct the 2005 EX model and all the options will work. Is this correct? Please let me in on the secret :)

Hello and welcome to the forum. If you see on top of the thread list, there's a sticky thread on 2007 ody depax. And yes you're correct. Don't tell them that yours is a touring or otherwise, it's most likely that they will reject your request of the swap. Get the right tpms just FYI also.

I'm a bit new. Can someone tell me what "DEPAX" means? Thanks. :)

again, you can read the sticky but

long words short, taking your original touring tires and wheels off,

get a new set of rims, tpms(if you choose to; you can cut

open the old tires on your touring wheels and take out the old

tpms and reuse it again), and tires, put them altogether, and just

bolt those new set on your vehicle and you're ready to go.

Just in case that you're not familiar with pax tires, pax tires are

run flat tires that has a ring inside, so that you can drive upto

125miles at 55mph. Lots of people 'depax' them because first,

they're very expensive when replacing, takes a LONG time to

get them replaced, and they don't last as long as normal tires.

They're heavier compare to a regualr set of rims and tires. Its

really hard to balance them that your steering wheel is gona

shake no matter how many times you get them balanced.

End of the story :D

hope it helps you.

here's the sticky:

Thanks. I thought I'd looked through all of the sticky topics.

I guess the current generation Touring does not have run flat tires, correct? Do we know what type of spare and where it is located?

you're correct. it became an option back

in 08, discontinued in 09. and touring models with pax don't

come with spare. you have to get one on your own.

My depax is now complete and I now have a complete set of Pax wheels tire and TPMS sensors for sale... if you are interested in these, please let me know.
craigslist ad http://spacecoast.craigslist.org/pts/2044308698.html
the price is OBO. I purchased new sensors and the old ones worked fine but I didn't want to destroy the tires since they still had good tread on them.
