Just need to confirm. I'm about to buy 19" NSX front rims for my type R (08W19-T6N-202B). I picked Michelin Pilot All Season 4 ZP from tire rack (245-35-19). Thought I check tire rack tire selector for the NSX and there where no AS tires in their list. The size was right. Am over thinking it or is there something about the NSX rim that only allows Summer. As I type that I'm shacking my head no way but best ask before I'm out a lot of Money.... One more thing the TPMS is external correct Thanks

You are overthinking it, there is nothing special about the NSX rims that will prevent you from running all seasons. You also do not need to worry about TPMS sensors since the CTR uses the wheel speed sensor.

On another note, would you mind sharing your source for the NSX wheels and price paid?

Well, got them installed just before a rain shower set in.... BC Forged RZ05 in matte bronze. I wanted them in 9.5 but they had the ones from Dave's photo shoot already mounted on PS4s for a killer price I couldn't pass up! Haven't taken it for a spin yet. Maybe tomorrow.

Also, deal with Dan at BC Forged was fantastic! Super helpful with my questions and made it quick and painless!

BC Forged RZ05 in Matte Bronze

19x10 +55
Michelin PS4s 295/30/19
Stock Suspension (no fender rolling, spacers etc)

I'll edit another day and post more photos

Ramon, those BC Forged RZ05's look good. Very interested in hearing how the 10'" width along with the Mich 295's work out for you!
Very nice set up.

Looks great Ramone,
Got any rub?
I thought about 30 series 275’s on 19x10s but found TSW creative out for $161 ea, rotary forged plus the right tuck w/255/35-19.

I was told 265 square was as widest with doing something to fenders on 9.5”.

Where you advised any narrower as max w10”?

Size calc looks pretty good, 4% size diff and overall should be ok. Be careful though as yours and OEMs show same x SC idewall size, watch those precious rims!

Dave (RepyT), not to knit pick but it looks like you accidently entered 295/25/19 rims in your tire 2 entry above vice the 30 profile Ramon has..

Yea, I saw that and told him already. Lol

Also went for a drive and found a dead end. No rubbing of the sort in a parking lot. Hit some deep potholes and speed bumps and didn't get any rubbing either.


And now that the suspension settled.... The gap lessened a bit

Metal_driver (Callaway Mavrik here),
Thanks for pointing out the error. I get length right it’s width I under estimate, especially with women.. The orbiting smaller girls should have been a clue she was a tad overweight.

With nearly 60 y/o eyes I should use the iPad or PC instead if iPhone but these were the best eyes available online for transplant (www.Floridadriverssreblind.moc). The , rest of me is trapped in a 20 y/o body... forty years ago.

I made a similar mistake about 25 years ago. Was out late, pulled in my driveway, quietly brushed my teeth and put them away, slipped into bed, made love to my beautiful wife.

Imagine my horror in the morning when I discovered.... WRONG HOUSE! I should have realized as I have a trophy wife, just not first place.

That now ex-wife was being nitpicky too, honest mistake, that’s my story and I’m sticking to it your honor.
