Hi folks,
I just taken ownership of a 2013 Acura MDX with OEM 255/50R19
I have confirmed that 17" rims will fit on the MDX

I currently have some nearly new winter tires from the preceding SUV ( yes I will need new rims)
They are 245/65R17

Hoping to get advice if they will be a good match for the MDX
The off-the-top-of-my-head calculations thinks that they will *slightly* oversized, but still usable while making the speedo slightly slower..

Thoughts?
Cheers
J

Your conclusions sound about right. The diameter of the snows is about .5" taller but if you already have the tires, I wouldn't worry about that at all. Run them.

Sound great. I'm running bootleg 15" rims on my HHR that normally gets 16 and up. I test fit and am happy with more sidewall.

Look up your load ranges but usually when the sidewall gets taller you get lots more.

According to Tire Rack, 245/65R17 is the right size for your vehicle.

Using this tire calculator shows snow tire is 0.5" taller.
