Not a big fan of aftermarket wheels on the third gen, but I must say that this set looks noice, especially on the dark green. Good find!

My wife just bought a 17 Elite and she wants me to get the wheels swapped to something black...

Hers in steel sapphire metallic and she thinks black wheels will make it look less like a mom mobile. I like a couple of the TSW wheels as possible replacements but would love to see actual pictures of some pilots with them as after market wheels. In my head they may look real good, but until you actually see them who knows.

I have an EXL with the stock wheels, it too looked like a typical Mom Mobile/Minivan. This was the only solution I could find do differentiate her from the pack. All the other ones I have seen are on 22s and even 24s rolling on rubberbands. Doesnt the Elite have the option for 20" black stock OEM rims? The other TSW wheels I was looking at was Bathurst but did we really need Rotary Forged on a Pilot. and The Gatsby. I still like the Vspoke and thought the Rouge was a good compromise. Important thing Happy Wife, Happy Life.

The did have the option for the black 20" wheels, and those look nice but at 2 grand I think I can find something that looks nicer maybe with a few less dollar bucks spent, but that isn't really the concern. I've even thought about just getting her wheels powder coated, just not sure though.

I like the TSW Crowthorne and Max as possible replacements. I personally think the 20s that came on her Pilot look nice, but she wants a change and has put it squarely in my lap to make it happen.

There's a thread here with the Max:

Looks clean, what are the specs; width and offset ...

I overlaid yellow film on my fogs, didn't want to go too much with the other front signals.

Thank you, 19x8.5 with 40 offset
I thought about putting yellow on the foglights but its such a small surface area, so I placed yellow bulbs in the fogs with the clear lens and made the turn signals yellow. I actually get a lot of compliments on it.

The Rotary Forged cut a few pounds off. It is good for those who wants bigger/wider wheels and tires and wanna keep overall weight close to OEMs'. The Pilot 20" is 32 lbs each and several of the TSW RF models are around 25 - 28 lbs each. Happy wheeling.

Very nice indeed. They really transform the van. If only I wasn't so cheap.
