#137 of 143 07 TSX acceptable tire sizes?
Sep 07, 2010 (5:29 am)
New to this site, looking to replace pilot HX MXM4 michelin radial XSE 215/50/17's with hankook optimo H727 using a 225/55/17 size tire. is this alright? Reviews seem pretty good, not to costly, very good snow and ice ratings which is needed for WV winters w/o changing tires and 100k on the treadwear (supposedly). don't think this size will affect to much other than spedo. Looking for any comments concerning fit, ride... also, bought certified used from dealed w/3k and owner had some extras put on so not sure if it has the upgraded suspension kit installed as mentioned as optional. How can I tell if this was added to the vehical? Owner also had the current tires put on so not sure if these are the stock wheels either.
Thanks, very informative site!

225/55-17 is a little big (both wider and taller than stock).
I'd look for a better match - either a 215/50-17 or 225/50-17. Lots of fine all-season tires to choose from in that size.

Yeah, I was hoping to try the hankook's, I saw a post about the ratio being a difference between height and width, so thought it might be similar.
Thanks for the input fedlawman
#140 of 143 Replace Factory Wheel on TSX

I need to replace a front Acura TSX chrome wheel which has been dented by a curb. Apparently it is beyond repair. My question is does anyone know an alternative to purchasing a brand new wheel for 500+ bucks at the Acura shop. The Acura tech actually suggested Ebay but is there a reputable company out there? Not sure I trust websites like 'Hotwheels" or the other internet companies...

did you try looking on either the acurazine or tsx club websites.

They refurbish wheels and my boss has used them for his Audi a couple of times.
They have a retail price as well as an "exchange" price.

If you're in Chicagoland area Wheel Tech in Highland Park does a great job of fixing rims. I had my MDX "curbed" rim fixed and standard price was $110. Made it look like brand new. He has great website under www.wheel-tech.com
His website says he can even "weld fill" if it is gouged too deep.
