Following the footsteps of a couple of other Piloteers on here, I went with the Acura MDX wheels. However, unlike those guys I used 245/50/20 tires, which were on my OEM 20" Elite wheels. I don't think my photos do justice, but I really dig the slightly wider stance the new wheels gave the car.

I must add... for those who are considering on doing the same, the 245/50/20 tires look absolutely perfect on the 8.5" MDX wheels IMO. I thought they were too wide on the stock 8" wide rims... same with the 265 wide tires that are supposed to be mounted on these wheels per Honda/Acura. Even per this site https://www.tyresizecalculator.com/charts/tire-width-for-a-wheel-rim-size-chart 265 is too wide for 8.5" wheels. I'm not sure why Honda spec'd tires that are too wide for their wheels. I thought my tires always looked flat before, but it's because they're just too wide for the wheel. Now it's perfect!
