I am looking to upgrade the steelies on my 99 to factory aluminum wheels on a tight budget. My 15" wheels have nearly new Goodyear Assurance tires on them but I have had zero luck finding nice 15" wheels for a decent price. However I did find a set of wheels from a 2010 Odyssey, I think 17" with 10 spokes for $250 and a set of 17" MDX wheels for $200, from a an 06 I think. Will either of these fit without clearance issues?? I did a bit of searching but found nothing pertaining to putting these wheels on a first gen. If anyone can point in the direction of some accurate info it would be greatly appreciated.

2005 and up odyssey rims will not fit. They use a 5 x 120 bolt pattern compared to the CRV's 5 x 114.3 bolt pattern.

2001-2006 MDX. have the same bolt pattern. I can't say if you will have clearance issues.

I still have not gotten wheels yet, nothing for a good price that would actually fit without either spacers or buying all new tires which I do not have the $$ for. I found a set of s2000 wheels with like new stock sizef(for the s2000) tires for a good price and a new set of take off 2004 Pilot wheels with no tires for a super price. Will either fit without spacers? I know the s2000 are 2 different width wheels front to back but I can live with that. The price of the Pilot wheels is so low I am tempted to get them and sit on them and get tires as I can afford it as long as they will fit.

I picked up the 2004 Pilot OEM 16" Alloys today. $150 for all 4 new takeoffs in the garage since 2004 when truck was new. Never driven on the street as it got accessory wheels before it left the lot and the person I purchased them from owned the lot so I believe it to be true. Now onto tires and alignment, maybe some polyurethane front bushings too....

I got tires for these Friday. Went for Hankook 215/60R16 H727 with 100,000 mile warranty from DiscountTireDIrect.com for $406 shipped. I have access to a tire machine for mag wheels and a spin balancer so it is just my labor for that. I am going to mount them up and balance and install them after I do trailing arm bushings and a few other bushings and a 4 wheel alignment.

Here it is with the Pilot wheels and new Hankook P215/60R16 tires all installed. Did the mounting and balancing yesterday and put them on in the driveway this afternoon.

Will do!! I had Hankooks on my last truck an S-10 and they were VERY good. Nice and quiet, predictable handling and an all around great tire.

Glad you didn't get the Odyssey rims. Many sell them cheap as they have PAX tires and are super expensive to replace. Also I believe you can only mount PAX tires on PAX rims. Hence another reason so many sell them off.

i already got the Pilot wheels/tires all mounted and installed. I cannot afford to buy wheels and tires again right now. Not to say I will not still be on the lookout for S2K wheels for a killer price though...
