I am going to use these wheels from my TLX on my RDX when it comes in... then the stock advance wheel will be the winter wheel.

They have not yet specced out any wheels.

The Acura Black Glint accessory wheel is very nice but, black paint on a base RDX wheel for $2,000 USD/$2,500 CAD is serious price-gouging.
Lol did you just seriously call tire rack the premier wheel site?

Do you know anybody who sells more wheels and tires online?

For my 2019 Acura RDX Advance, I purchase my wheels from the tire rack.com
You can see what your vehicle would look like with your desired Wheels!
These are 19x8 Andros R10 wheels using the stock tires.
I had the Acura dealership install them, so there wouldn’t be any problem! No tire pressure monitor system problems etc.

Nice wheels, they match the chrome accents on the car nicely. Did you get new TPMS sensors or did you have the dealer move them over?

Anyone know the weight of the Advance wheels? Looking to replace them but mainly looking for weight savings with looks being second.

Careful what you wish for. This thing handles nicely, but it's still a 2 ton SUV. Flyweight wheels might not hold up very well, and the performance benefits are likely to be minor.

Great improvement! I couldn't live with the stock Platinum Elite wheels either but I didn't want to pay for the black glint. I'm getting mine painted a pearl black gloss right now. Can't wait!

I agree. I would love to make the Advance wheels look more like the A-spec wheels. Are the A-spec wheels matte finished or gloss? And are they black or dark grey?

A-Spec wheels are Shark (dark) Gray with glossy clear coat.

Thanks! Do you think Powder Coating is the most cost effective way to make the Advance wheels look similar to the A-Spec wheels?

Plasti-Dip is a lot cheaper than powder coating but, it is not durable and if not done perfectly, looks like crap.

I'm not expert or experienced. I just thought that the powder-coated example that was posted looked really nice.
