Post your aftermarket rim and tire specs here!

Hey new to the Second Gen RDX forum but been a member of Acurazine for years in the TSX and TL forums. I felt it would be nice for everyone to post their aftermarket rim and tire specs for others to reference.

Thanks and enjoy!

I personally will be purchasing a white 2016 RDX Advance and aftermarket wheels is a must!

I'm in the same boat but looking at 20's are 22's. Have 20's on my 2014 TL so I think 20's may be small which is why I started this thread to help myself as well as others who are running aftermarket wheels. The RDX forum is a little slow.

The ride quality would suck with 22s don't you think? You would run a 30 series high tire? I'm leaning more towards 19s or 20s and still run a 45 or 50 series. Sticking with Michelin though lol

I'd love to see some pics too. Trying to decide between 19s and 20s as a replacement for the OEMs on my black 2015. The 18s seem kinda small.

Personally, I think 20's is ok on the RDX but can go a little bigger. If my measurements are correct. The 22's would be running a 45 series tire maybe a 40 series. I have 20's on my 2014 TL on 30's. I don't think the RDX needs 30's.

Even though i know the Bolt pattern wont align up you think you can put one of your 20's next to the RDX, i'd love to see the comparison, I might take your advice on the 20s

I am having a hard time as well. Personally, I am not a fan of Vossen wheels but they do look pretty good on SUVs. I am leaning more towards HRE, WORK, something forged and mutli piece. I pay for quality wheels. May be time to start photo shopping!

I am very interested on what people came up for wheels so far. I am also very indecisive haha

Since I was working on my cars yesterday I got a chance to put my 20" Work VSXX next to the RDX. With some bigger tires they won't look too bad. I think I found what wheels I plan to get the RDX sometime soon hopefully. Looking at Avant Garde Forged Wheels white w/polished step lip and red hardware/center caps.

Sorry pictures were taken with my phone and didn't come out too sharp. Tires are 30 series to they appear small.

If you don't mind me asking, what will you do with your old wheels? I just recently bought a 2016 RDX FWD AWP but was in the market for wheels from the Advance models.

Most likely I'll end up keeping them as the daily wheels. The aftermarket wheels are only for spring and summer.

I'll keep you in mind if I decide to part with them.

Your the man bro thanks for that 20's look good, I was thinking of going with the Cheaper Avant Gardes they're like 6 or 8spoke 1 piece in black. We'll see, winter is around the corner so won't be anytime soon.

Does anyone know if a 255 will fit the '16s without any rubbing or clearance issues?


I'm looking at going with 20s for my new 2016 Elite (what they call the Advanced up here in Canada) and after doing the calculations, the 255/45R20 is nearly the identical overall diameter as the stock 235/60R18 so the speedo/odo wouldn't need to be messed with.

On the factory wheels? Should be fine, you really don't run into issues unless you're lowered. It may poke depending on your wheel specs but I'd say you're good.

No not factory wheels. The two wheel styles I'm looking at are 20x8.5 and 20x9 respectively. The other thing On my wondering is if these wheel widths will even work on 255 width tires. I'm thinking 9.5 are the smallest wheel width that would work with 255s.

Edit: just found that 9s will work on 255 width tires.

Correct 255 fits 9" wheels. I had a buddy recommended that on my 20x9 +16 Work front wheels. Both specs would work. Offset is the biggest factor at those widths.

The wheels I'm looking at are actually stock +40 offset and one set is a +38 so I shouldn't have any issues there.

2015 Rdx with staggered 20" axe wheels.

After 2 months of research and help from a great wheel vendor I came up with a great combo of staggered wheels and tires. Everyone I spoke to said it will not work. I have had them on for 2 weeks now and the ride and handling are great. No rubbing or issues with turning. I will try and post some pics.

Thanks for being the first to post edrdx. I also like the 5 spoke. Being staggered really doesn't matter for FWD. After seeing it on 20's there is still quite a bit of room left. How is the ride quality compared to your factory wheels?

Nice upgrade!

Hey edrdx nice wheels! By the way, looking back would you get the sport running boards again? They don't seem so functional to me, moreso the aesthetic?

I'm curious as well because running boards are on my list along with the cross bars. Haven't seen the Advance chrome set yet. Only the sport which looks a little uneven though I wanted them. The sport running boards are functional for kids or washing the roof. That's about it. I wonder if the advance running boards are even useable.

On another note, I need to see another 2nd gen RDX on 22's now. We need a comparison. I know someone has one with them on.

Personally I'm leaning towards something similar to my Work VSXX's for my wife's RDX. I'm pretty flashy. I'm thinking brushed aluminum faces with polished lip and chrome bolts. If I can, red center caps on her WDP. Next spring I'll have something for everyone. Just need to decide on size. Probably 20x9-9.5" or 22x9-9.5" offset to be determined. This our first SUV so have to figure out the best fitment. I need to avoid lowering since it is an SUV and my wife's lol. I stay low though.

If on 20" it definitely need at least lowering springs and aftermarket struts. I don't mind running coilovers but not ideal for my wife's daily. I'd go air like I am on my TL but that's too much. Most likely it would be lowering springs on OEM struts until the go then upgrade to aftermarket struts. Only needs a mild drop. I am pretty close with Marcus at heeltoe so maybe I can get him to use my wife's RDX as the heeltoe spec addition since they don't have a second gen. They're parts stop at 2012.

Sorry missed the 15 minute edit time. Have a lot on my mind when it comes to the RDX since it is the newest project, even though I have done a lot already.

My choice of running boards.

As you can see the running boards are not very functional. The only reason I got them was to make my RDX different from every one I pass. The staggered look was because I liked the look of the BMW X5 sport with the staggered set up. The ride is a little stiffer because of the size of sidewalls of the tires. The problem with the staggered set up is you are limited to finding a front and rear tire that have the same tread pattern. When mounted on different width rims you need to come up with a matching circumference. The sizes that I used are actually the size tires on the new SS Camaro. I am now in the process of trying to locate someone who makes a set of coilovers for this vehicle. I enjoy taking a vehicle and putting my touches on it and have it look different. More mods to come.

Looks good!

Are the front wheels/tires flush with the fenders? I'm looking at a set of 19" wheels which will end up with roughly the same fitment in front, so I want to make sure that they do not poke out at all.

Here's a picture of the front wheel. It sits pretty flush to me.





Here's another shot.

Only people running aftermarket wheels are WDP! Which helps me. There's still a lot of room to work with. Hmm. How's the ride quality?

Can you squeeze a 35 series in there? That sounds like the right size for 22" just curious. I'm leaning towards 22" if I can find a legit rim style. 20's possibly since it's the wife's.

My god, I don't even want to imagine that thing going 100+. These things handle like garbage.

I just sold my 3G that I thought I wanted to keep and it had some wheels that I'd like to transfer over to my wife's car. What would be the best tire size for 19x8.5. I'd like to keep the wheel gap where it is now.

I'm not understanding this staggered thing at all. Are people doing it to get flush fitment front and rear? Blotchy's set-up is 16mm further out in the rear than the front, why not get the same size F&R and get a 15mm spacer?

I just picked up my 2016 RDX AWD Advance today...I don't mind the stock rims so much. But, I believe the stock tires aren't that highly rated, so I'm guessing I will have to upgrade at some point in the next year or so (supposedly they aren't good in the snow/ice). I figured if I'm going to upgrade, why not get wider looking tires. (I just like the look of wider tires on a car or SUV).

Has anyone put 255/55/18 tires on their RDX? I looked up the dimensions of the tire, the overall radius is only 0.1" larger than the stock tires (235/60/18). Are there any issues with turning or steering? Do the tires have enough clearance in the front? Would love to see pics if anyone has put this size tire on the stock rims...
