Anybody using 17" wheels on their Pilot?

I am considering winter tires, and as I may eventually trade-in for the MDX, was thinking it would be prudent to go 17", the size the MDX uses.

Many think the 16" is too small for the Pilot anyway, but I want to make sure 17" won't screw up the braking, ABS, VTM or gas mileage in any significant way.

No prob!

I've had 17x8's since day two. The trick is to spec the right tire as to not significantly change overall diameter. +/- 1/2".

IMHO- the size I'm using just looks and feels right for the vehicle. Better handling, braking, cornering and stability. No drama.
