Thanks,


it is ACE Wheels "Deluxe" 20x8.5 with Yokohama Parada C-spec x 275x40x20,



Hey <b>misio</b>,

Did you have those <b><i>'A' Acura LOGO</b></i> center caps custom made for these wheels?

Where did you get them from?

Great find, fit, and appearance~ I would have never guessed from the pictures alone that those caps are of the '<i>soft flexible plastic type</i>' let alone that you bought them off ebay.

They really look like they have a machine finished/polished aluminum exterior- matches wheels perfectly =)

Misio...best look I've seen on the 'X' so far. Personally, I prefer a 'slightly' taller sidewall but man your 'X' looks fantastic! Kudos on a beautiful ride. BTW, what % tint did you use on your front windows?

Also, has anyone done a staggered 20" wheel setup on their 'X'? I am not sure it's even possible, still researching. Heck, I have not even purchased my 'X' yet. :D

From what I've gathered so far (<i>from too many hours of wheel & tire research</i>), a <b><i>staggered</i></b> wheel setup is never a good idea on an <u>all wheel drive</u> vehicle.

As for why? <i>I have absolutely no clue.</i> I did however read about this quite often...

I have contact manufactory about this setup and even they told me that is no problem at all to use there wheels.


Thank you all for your comments, it took long time of looking and photoshoping to find what will look good. Side wall is good, as far as sidewall I only put 32psi in it, you can go more but I like to have it nice ride quality and with those tires it rides just like stock on 18s.

My tint is 20% precut from ebay and installed by me.

Nice selection <b>elite-fusion</b>!!

Way to complement your <i>already</i> pimped out X (<i>esp. with those new 'angel eye' lights in the front</i>!).

As for the tire size- did you end up going with <u>265-<b>35</b>-22</u> or <u>265-<b>40</b>-22</u>?
