Sorry, no suspension work. It was just a quick photo editting job. I thought they were pretty funny pictures, so I wanted to share them.
The rims are actually on the car right now, so the second picture is real. The rims came off my Eclipse
The rims are on the MDX for a couple of reasons...
1. I'm checking fitment and offset, because I was thinking about using these rims on the MDX (with proper sized tires, of course; and I am selling the Eclipse). The rims are actually bigger than stock MDX rims, 18x7.5 vs. 17x6.5. I'm running 225/40-18 tires. Yes, overall the package is SMALL, quite a bit smaller than stock.
2. I thought it would be fun to see how these rims look on the car.
3. My right front tire had a leak, and I did not want to drive around with a little donut (so instead I'm driving around with 4 donuts... Ha ha...)
My wife is pretty embarrassed to drive this thing around. I would like to pick up some 20". Maybe one of these days...

i think it wouldn't be bad at all if you put in the right tire fitment. Besides it's bigger and wider than stock. It would improve your handling and grip a bit without sacrificing much on ride comfort. Lowering the X by an inch won't be so bad either just to balance the wheel gap and lower profile tire
what i don't like are those 20-22" crome wheels running on 35-40 profile tires with huge wheel gaps. Kinda looks like your 2nd picture.
