So happy with my decision to change out the OEM rims and tires.
Them along with the idle/stop feature are the only faults I’ve got with my Passport.

Thanks everyone for your suggestions! It took all your help and two trips to America’s Tire!

I will get a money shot tomorrow.

Wheels:
KMC KM707 20” - On the logo, the half of the K & MC is the same gray as my Passport and the other half of the K is the red my calipers will be painted next week!

Tires:
Michelin Pilot (?) Sport All Season 275/45/R20 - they’ve got about 3/4” rim guard!

My local Huntington Beach Honda/Acura specialists shop, Autowave has the OEM’s if you are interested in buying them...

Nice! So, no road rash with these? Or too soon to tell?
Geez - I hope not!
I have gotten better at parking and these have about 3/4” rim guard on them! But they are sure big tires...?

Yikes - I hope I didn’t mess this up...

Just checked for any rubbing in the wheel well with the wheel cranked.

Drivers side is about 1/2”:

Do you feel any differences when driving? Smoother over bumps? Quieter? Anything?

I can’t be certain on a difference in driving, other than I feel taller?
Today was just Target and Trader Joe’s, the tire store said no freeway or high speeds for 2-3 days to give the tires and rims settlement time? My neighbor did say the wheels look “bitchin” ?

I forgot to measure the overall height, since I have the old number...tomorrow I will try to remember.

That’s some serious math Wayne!
I talked my Honda Shop and sent him these photos, he said I should never crank my wheel that far and if needed they could cut the plastic molding, (which I’d rather not do).

They will have my car for a week starting tomorrow to paint the calipers and he will check it out while I’m in LA for work. So hopefully all is ok.

Mayne someone can post a photo of the stock wheels cranked all the way to the right? That’s where they actually touched the plastic.

Love the way your wheels and tires turned out! Good choice Prodgirl!
Any issues since ? Has the lack of clearance/rubbing created a problem that needs to be fixed?
Thinking of a similar setup myself.?

If I was to paint my Calipers, I would either do a Orange or Lime Green!Either of which would add some snap to the gloomy look of the Metallic Gray...

No issues with the rubbing.
My Honda shop did tell me I will rarely if never crank my wheel that tight anyway.
There is about a 1mpg less on my mileage, but they ride so smooth. I drove to and from Vegas a couple weeks ago and I swear, the ride was so much smoother and went faster than usual. And I make that drive about –6 times a year as thats where my 3 & 6 year old nephews live.

I originally was going to go with an orange color but then the red K in the KMC cap would have looked weird.
