Wheels & Hitch Installed

As is my habit, I like to buy my Honda/Acura accessories online (cheapest) and install myself. I have yet to mess anything up and this latest round went well. I just added Black Wheels (including Storage rack) and a Hitch with Harness to our 2018 MDX Tech SH-AWD. The install for the hitch and harness was pretty straightforward and can be done if you have moderate mechanical ability. The tire rack from Tire Rack is really a nice piece of gear and quite well made. The only thing I did was use longer SPAX lag bolts than the 6 that were provided. Pictured are the new tires before mounting on the new black wheels. Black Wheels will be used in the Spring Summer & early Fall, stock wheels will be used in the wintery/snow months. This weekend I think I am going to tackle the Roof Rail installation. Fingers crossed!!!

The carrier is only on there during hauling events. I bought the Hitch and Hitch Harness from https://www.acurapartsnow.com They had the best prices and shipping.
