While I did like the stock wheels on my 14 Tech, I wanted something different as there appears to be a very large concentration of 3G black MDX's where I live. These are 20" 2016 - 2017 Honda Accord replica wheels with Pirelli Scorpion Verde A/S tires. Let me know your opinion of how they look? You won't hurt my feelings if you don't like. I'm honestly torn between this setup and stock. Ride is smooth like glass but so where the 19" Continentals on the stock wheels. I left the stock tires/wheels/tmps sensors in-tact in case I want to switch back. Besides being 20" vs 19", these wheels have the exact same specs as stock, which is 8" width, 55MM offset, 64.1MM centerbore, 5x114.3 bolt pattern.

Looks great! Where did you find them?
I purchased them from Amazon for $769 shipped and they are JWL and VIA certified. I called a wheel repair specialist I have used before and Discount Tire to ask about replica wheels and both said in their experience, if they had these certifications, they were as good as OEM and many times, produced in same plant as OEM. Time will tell if this is indeed true but they looked great coming out of the boxes.

I like them!

Make sure to get some wheel locks for them. I like the Gorilla brand and have them on all three of my vehicles. Did you use the original lugs or purchased replacement lugs for the new rims? I think OEM uses a ball lug and nearly all aftermarket used cone/taper lugs. I've kept one of my OEM rims as a full size spare and also keep OEM lugs if I have to use the spare.

Thank You. Since these are replica's of OEM Honda, I was able to use my existing lugs for the new wheels. I also purchased and installed Gorilla wheel locks as well.
