will getting diffrent size rims and tires do anything to the speedometer or odometer?</font>
Minimal changes if you go with the "plus" system. I beleive this was explained in another post a few months back.
Example:
*stock rims/tires- "13 rims with 175/70-13 tires
*plus 1 - "14 rims with 195/60-14 tires
*plus 2- "15 rims with 205/50-15 tires
...and so on and so forth.
In stock trim, almost any vehicle's odometer and speedometer is already a bit off from perfect.
Hope this helps.

Andy, in the case of the '99 and newer Odyssey, the following setup will maintain the correct calibration of the speedometer (keep in mind that in stock factory setting, the Ody's speedometer is a
little "optimistic" to begin with):

Plus 0 - stock rims: 16x6.5 stock tire: 215/65-16. You can also use 225/60-16.

Plus 1 - 17x7-8 rims - 235/55-17 tires

Plus 2 - 18x8 rims - 235/50-18 tires

Michelin recommends the 235/60-16 as a replacement for the 215/65-16!

Has anyone here tried 245/45/18? It'sanother option for 235/50/18 and it's also 0.19% too slow than the 2002 stock size of 225/60/16 (not much of a difference). I guess my concern is whether this tire would rub the inside/outside of the wheel well. What should the offset of the rims be should I decide to go this route? What if I use lowering springs (like the H&R) with this size of tire?

Thanks everyone for your help.
