Hey 5abi,

I'd inquire with board member <b>ATSUO TANAKA</b>
I grabbed the picture above from ATSUO's gallery (http://www.acuramdx.org/photopost/showgallery.php?cat=500&ppuser=22910&thumb=1) in addition to the one below:

<img src=http://www.acuramdx.org/gallery//500/22910img_0677.jpg>

ATSUO TANAKA is from Japan and owns this X:
<img src=http://www.acuramdx.org/gallery//500/22910125.jpg>

*as long as he's still logging in here and checking this board, I would imagine that he'd be more than willing to provide you with the make, wheel size, offset, tire make & sizes (etc.) for that light colored X...he helped me tremendously when he was giving me specs on his wheel (<i>Maya- no longer distributed in the US</i>).

Thanks for posting these up for me, techm8n~
I meant to post these up here with other X with rims as soon as I had some spare time, but been busy a bit.
Anyways, like I said, my rims go little shy on the width but I thought the overall face looks go well with the new sharper image of our new X.

which rims are these?

<b>O.Z. Palladio ST</b>
http://www.ozracing.com/at-team/wheels/all-terrain/palladio-st/en

*It's a <b>20 inch</b> wheel with a single <b>Bright Silver Paint</b> finish.

<i>Too bad O.Z. doesn't make these wheels in a 22 inch size or with an optional chrome finish...

otherwise I definitely would have bought these by now....nevertheless they seem to be a great fit style-wise for the X!...</i>

what are the rims on the mdx at the top left? this mdx is just about perfect. 99% of the rims posted here and in the other rim threads are dreadful except for the OZ palladios.

Per <b>Tire Rack</b> website:

<i>2007 & up Acura MDX (stock tire size on 18" stock wheel: 255-55-18)</i>:

<b><u>20" wheel:</u> 255-45-20 (<i>recommended tire size</i>)

<u>22" wheel:</u> 265-35-22 (<i>*recommended tire size</i>)</b>

*I'm definitely going to use the <b>40</b> series (<u>265-<b>40</b>-22</u>) on my future 22's as opposed to the <b>35</b> series(<u>265-<b>35</b>-22</u>).<br> Fortunately I won't be the first one on this board to do this- others have successfully fitted their 22 inch wheels<br> (<i>on the '07 and up MDX</i>) with this particular tire size. So rubbing, or fitment concerns aren't as much of an issue as<br> they would have been if I hadn't known of anyone who had used this size before.

265-<b>40</b>-22 tires will increase the tires' sidewall height while resulting in a smoother ride and potentially more protection- <br>I just think it's looks better aesthetically compared to the 265-<b>35</b>-22 tires for 22 inch wheels on the 2nd generation MDX...

265-<b>40</b>-22 TIRE SIZE (<i>on 22 inch wheels on the 07' & up MDX):
http://www.acuramdx.org/forums/showthread.php?s=&threadid=36122

<i>*sorry don't know what would be the 'best looking' size for 20's other than what Tire Rack recommended (above). </i>
<br><b>For me, it's 22's all the way... =)</b>

so 35 compared to 40 = 35 are more low profile? then 40, correct?

265 is the width of how wide they are
22 is the size of the rim that would go on it
35 or 40 would be how much visible tire from the rim there is.

is this correct?

and are FALKEN good?
and are SUNNY good?
and are NEXEN good?
and which one is better quality?

About tire sizing:

The first number is the width.
The second number is the profile, which represents the amount tire seen above the rim, sort of
The third number is the diameter of rim that would best fit that tire.

Using a series of mathematical computations you can use the above numbers to calculate the overall diameter of the tire. When plus sizing or getting recommendations from tire rack, the goal is to stay as close to stock overall diameter to maintain adequate speed and mileage measurements.

About the profile. The number listed is actually a percent and the amount of tire seen above the rim is actually a percent of the rim width.

example:



Stock 18's on the 07-09 MDX are 255/55/18.


255mm wide

55% of 255 is 140.25 mm of tire sidewall above the rim

140.25 divided by 25.4 (the conversion from mm to inches)= 5.522 inches of tire sidewall above the rim

5.522 multiplied by 2 because there is tire above and below the rim = 11.044 inches (the amount of tire contributing to the overall diameter of tire/rim

11.044+18 (the size of the stock rim)= 29.044 inches of total siameter.

Be careful arbitrarily increasing or decreasing the profile without taking into consideration the overall diameter of the resulting combo because it may render your traction control, abs, skid control, odometer and/or speedometer nonfunctioning (dangerous) or inaccurate (good way to get a ticket).

This is part of the reason I went with 19's cause they stay as close to stock diameter when you get 255/50/19's (29.039 inches).

For those that worry about comfort when going up to 22's, you guys are funny. There really isn't much appreciable comfort by slightly increasing to 40's but your changing your diameter to 30.34 , a difference of 4.5% seems not smart. Monkey see, Monkey do is not always that smart. Finally, having driven several modified cars through the years when you change with the factory settings you are going to compromise something, often times comfort, so why are worrying about comfort when you want to have 22's for looks? SUFFER FOR YOUR ART OR GO HOME!
