That looks awesome. I was looking for a set back when I needed new tires. I found a set of '05 MDX wheels with tires instead. I like the TSX wheels a little better than mine, I think it looks the best of all the aftermarket rims on the Element so far. I hope you get them. Let us know which tires you choose. I have Michelin All Terrain 235 65R 17, they rub making sharp turns. I might go with 60's next.

I want to add that I added spacers on mine. I don't think it's needed. TSX rims have a high offset but when I took a look it looked like it cleared the calipers no problem.

I just wanted a more agressive and stagered look. So I added 15mm front and 20mm back.

Tires are a dime a dosen. If your running 17's you can walk into any crysler dealership or tire store and buy take offs from a 300C. Their size is perfect for the Element on 17's.

I put on a set of Goodyear Integrity for under $150 and they where new.

i dont really know what kind of tire im gonna get. An all terrain tire wasnt really in my mind. I was going to look for a 45 or 50 series or something that will give it a sportier look. Im definitely going to be searching craigslist for some tires. My stock tires arent that low now, so Im not in a hurry to get tires for the TSX wheels. Also the ones that I am getting are the 7 spoke ones.
This just came up and Im getting it as a birthday present for myself (im turning 22 next thurs).

Pics are with the spacers.

Just got hubcentric ones off ebay. The spacers are killer and very well made. Would get them again.

The seller was ebay id: giftmimore

Looks good. Did you use spacers?

Tires are to small.

eventually I will be lowering it to fit the wheel well. I just want to wait for a couple years, so my warranty runs out..I think it looks ok. But I do agree that the sidewall is a little small, which makes it look sorta weird.. but I got the wheels and tires for under $400, so i think it was a good deal
