Any thoughts on downsizing to 17" inch wheels for winter use. I ran some numbers and P225/65R17 looks to be the same overall height as the stock P225/60R18. I was thinking of using CRV rims but i don't think they will clear. Any thoughts?

The bolt pattern is the same as the regular Accords and CRV.

Looking at my parts listings it uses an odd combination of parts.

The front hub and bearing is Accord.

The front rotors are CRV.

The front calipers are from the 2010 Odyssey.

Have you tried going into any of those special tire stores?
I have 2 different suppliers work in this for me. The problem is that the Crosstour is so new that there isn't much if any fitment info right now.

We have one in our showroom but getting it out of the showroom would be a major pain. I am just waiting till another one comes in next week so we can do a test fitment.

As a current owner of an 08 Accord with Michelin X-Ice tires (P225/50/R17 on 17" rims from a 07 Accord. I did the measurement. The OEM rims and tires (P225/60/R18) on the Crosstour are a good 3" taller than the 17" on my 08 Accord.

And yes I've traded my 08 (love it) on the Crosstour and awaiting delivery) Also will outfit with Michelin X-Ice, then do a search for extra rims. Hope this helps.

Hi everyone, I'm new to this forum and the winter is approaching quite fast up north Province of Quebec. So, I'm planning to buy spare rims with snow tires. Also planning to add a set of TPMS sensors. I heard thru the grapevine that Acura sensors (guest Honda is the same) can learn the new sensor's set themselves after you run a mile or so which will light off your TPMS indicator in the dash. If this is true, this will save you a visit to the dealer to reset these sensors every time you change tires. Did you hear any news like this? Is it true?

After reading a lot of documentation and having not found any info regarding TPMS sensor's learning, I decided to mount my new snow tires on original alloy rims. Being fully satisfied with my previous Accord running with Toyo Observe G-02. I opted for the same thing. I kept the same tire size 225/60R18. We'll see how its running on my CT 4WD.
The only thing that is bugging me a little bit its the fact that I used to get spare steel rims in order to protect original alloy one from salt and sh*** you may have on the road during winter period. Up north here (Canada) it's tough.

Yeah, they'll get plastered in salt and crap for sure...:rolleyes:
I'm not bothering with snows this year (we're not forced to........ yet) so taking a chance on mother nature being nice again this year.
What I'm going to do is give the cast wheels a couple of coats of good paste wax (outside and in) and hope that's enough to protect them.

Only thing I haven't done yet is check around for some spray on protectant that would be much easier and quicker than the wax job.
That could be applied after periodic cleaning on nicer days during the winter months.

Everyone whom is concerned! FIRESTONE MAKES A GREAT TIRE as well as TOYO - THE FIRESTONE COMES IN @ $580 Installed where as the Toyo is about $875...Totally different levels of quality, but worth it.! I JUST got my Car, so I am going to stick with my all-seasons..Anyone have any issues in the SNOW thus far?

I also live in Quebec (near Ottawa) and winter tires are mandatory in Quebec so I went to my dealer to ask them how much was a set of rims for the winter and they told that they do not make rims yet for the Crosstour :confused:. What should I do, anyone had that problem and what did they do, are there rims out there that would fit the Crosstour.

Sandra, If you've got no choice then you'll have to use the OEM rims the first winter and try to keep them clean of salt and crud.
With some wax and a little diligence, they should be fine.

Eventually the aftermarket will make a replacement rim for us if you can't find one now.
