Wheel Compatability

Does anyone know if the Honda Ridgeline wheels will fit a 2011 MDX. Looking for an alternative wheel to mount some snow tires on instead of purchasing Acura wheels?

Thx in advance,

I am also curious how you determine compatability. Is it tribal knowledge or are there set standard? Are there numbers on each rim that you can use to ensure compatability. When I got aftermarket rims for my snows the tire store had a catalog and were making sure the bolt pattern was the same. In the end the aftermarket rims needed plastic spacers to fit properly.

Bolt pattern for both vehicles are the same 5x120

Acura MDX 2007- Present has a 5x120 bolt pattern with 45 offset
Honda Ridgeline 2005-Present has a 5x120 bolt pattern with 45 offset

Technically speaking it should fit unless if it rubs against the brake calipers

Offset is the distance between the center of the wheels and their mounting surface, as pictured below. Along with the wheel width, it determines how far the wheels stick out from the car, as well as how far in towards the suspension and wheel wells the wheels extend. Read more here.

I use 17" ridgeline alloy wheels for my winter tires. No problem. It is tight on the brakes.
