07+ Acura MDX wheel fitments

i 've been looking for a set of rims to mount snow tires on my mdx.
i found a set of 06 acura RL rims, 5 x 120. and was wondering if the fitments would be fine. the bolt pattern seems to be the same, but concerned with the offset , for the RL is +55 which is a bit higher than the stock mdx.

I know the TPMS would need to be changed, but that is probably the least of my concerns.

i have tried asking acurzine and mdxer with no replies.. for most people seem to put mdx rims on TL/RL instead.

Thanks

my expectations are quite low for snow tires..
while the RL had a similar AWD drive train..

If you end up needing spacers, dont forget to factor in that cost compared to something that fits.

Have you checked out any used OEM BMW wheels? (not sure if the CB works)

yes, and i love the bmw x5 butterfly rims, but even in the used market, they dont go under a grand.

where as 18" acrua RL @ 5 x 120 can be had for under 200.

I doubt we have old RL rims kicking around. I work at Burrard Acura. Regarding BMW X5 wheels, we have one customer that did that actually. He bought X5 wheels n put em on his MDX it pokes out quite a lot but his TPMS light keeps flashing now cuz the sensors arent interchangeable.
