It seems that every time I'm on here I come across the redundant "Will These Rims / Tires Fit" question posts. So I've decided to make this thread to end all of them and help everyone find the answer to their questions in one spot.

The 1st GEN 2004-2008 Acura TSX came with wheels that are 17x7 and offset of +55, the stock tires the car was equipped with are the Michelin Pilot HX MXM4 sized at 215/50/R17 93V

The 2nd GEN 2009-2013 Acura TSX came with wheels that are 17x7.5 and offset of +55, the stock tires the car was equipped with are Michelin Brand ( Seeking Confirmation and or Correction , Need 100% Accurate Tire Name / Size ) 225/50/R17

( These will be the factory settings you will be using in the next step )

If you go to Online Wheel & Tyre Fitment calculator. Offset, Tyre stretch and Rolling Radius calculator and input all of the values provided above into this Tire / Wheel calculator it will give you a visual comparison of what the stock wheel / tire fitment was in comparison to the aftermarket Tire / Wheel that you want. The calculator also gives you additional info such as Diameter, Circumference, Poke, Inset, Speedo Error Reading at 30 MPH and 60 MPH, as well as Ride Height Gain and Arch Gap Loss.

Please use this tool to your advantage.

Enjoy!

PS. will update info once I find it or it surfaces on this thread.

+1 to this. Great simplification of the ever-resurfacing question!

Hey tekneek, even though the official stance thread covers the tire and wheel size with visual of what a certain tire, wheel and suspension set ups look like on the TSX, it dosnt provide you with a tool such as the calculator on Online Wheel & Tyre Fitment calculator. Offset, Tyre stretch and Rolling Radius calculator that can be individualized in real time , I still think this should be made into a sticky as each person can simply go to the site and directly plug in their numbers as oppose to browsing through pages and pages of other peoples setups ( which some of them have dead picture links ) I am in no way trying go up against your Mod authority just trying to help out the community and simplify it for the noobs :)
