I think the PCD is 5-114.3

At least thats what I see in the websites below...If not, is it possible to check from the manual?

Yes, the PCD is 5-114.3

The offset for both the factory fitted EX model rims (215/60 R16) and EXV model (215/55 R17) are +55. I am driving the EX model with 16" rims and recently upgraded to the factory fitted 17" rims (take-off rims). I took a look at both the rims during the change in the tyre shop and noticed both the offset are +55 (engraved on the inside of the rims). And both rims are made by Enkei.

The answer to your question on the ideal size is dependant on what you look for - comfort, handling or look. 16" tyres gives you more comfort (on stock A349 tyres). I find my new 17" tyres (bridgestone GR90) have better handling (eg cornering) but the ride is slightly harder and noiser. In terms of look, I find 17" look more balanced with our long car, plus the 16" rims is more difficult to clean.

If you ask me whether I'll do it again if given a choice, the answer is yes.

By the way, I realize after doing some research that all regular odysseys sold in Japan are on 16" tyres, except the Absolute version. I suppose the Japs may value comfort more than handling.

Hope this helps.

18" is better in terms of looks.noise is dependent on tyre profile and brands. I am letting go my brand new 8kg forged rim which is one of the lightest 18" in the market, save FC and better acceleration. Oh and reason for selling is because I am using back my old repaired rim which was down for a week.

Revive this thread...

Factory Rims Offset 55

Can fit 45 but will protrude so if lower will have problems?

Or Do 50 ( to be safe)

So who has the nice Flush look and can advise...

Hi There..

Can someone tell me if this set of rims can fit a RB3 Odyssey- 19 inches PCD 5 X 114.3 rims front 8.5 offset 35 & rear 9.5 offset 40.

I am considering changing to this set from the stock 17inch oem setup.

Many thanks in advance.
Rgds,
