(Rubbing oooohhh yeahhhh and wheel well trimming to make it fit. I know... I know... not worth it. And not safe due to unibody construction. And I'm an idiot Lol) it takes a lot of force and energy if you get into an accident where the wheel well will be compromise and passenger intrusion happen. Anywayssss...

1.5” bora wheel spacers( yea it makes the rubbing worse, but it looks soooo good)

What size are your spacers? I won't ask if you get rubbing :D Looks great!

Edit: Just noticed you cut the air dam under the front bumper. (y)
Yeah I just took it out. Pretty easy to take off anyways and made the ridgeline faster by 4mph after taking it off 😁

Thanks for emboldening me to remove the spoiler lip - it’s been bugging me. So we share the same rig - I have a 21 BE in white. I too kept my OEM rims when I mounted 265/18 BFG Train Terrains. Not as burly as those Kendas, but the noise has been great compared the KO2s I’ve run on our Toyotas. My question is about those trick Bora spacers. Agree the 1.5 looks way better - but I contemplated spacers with Toyota bolt pattern so I could mount some Method rims. Many forum articles scared me out of changing the lug pattern - so curious if you thought about it when you planned out your lift project. Can I also ask if you adjusted the headlights and was it easy? Thanks!

Yeah, I like the look of it with the spoiler lip off.

I returned the Kenda and went with the KO2. The Kenda were too loud and heavy(89lbs each wheel/tire combo lol). I almost got the mickey Thompson Baja boss SUV but the KO2 is currently on sale at Costco so I bought the KO2s instead. The KO2's are much quieter but they both ride the same.

Funny that you mentioned the Toyota bolt pattern because I've been contemplating it since I bought the truck couple of months ago and I want to mount some method rims as well. I might do this next time.
Wheel adapters 5x120 to 5x114.3 bolt pattern to give us more wheels option, especially the method ones.

I didn't adjust the headlights since I didn't feel the need to do it. I had my wife drive the Ridgeline while I drove our other car to test it and make sure it was not blinding the other drivers. I also added spot/flood lights adjacent to the fog lights and aim the beam in between the headlights and fog lights. I used the fog lights as a trigger so it automatically turns on with the fog lights, I also added a separate on/off switch. It is not absurdly bright and blinding to the other drivers. Overall better light coverage. I'll post some pictures. Just need to find some time.

Thanks. It’s a spray on product called “Airwrap”.
do you mind sharing the link for the air wrap so I can get the same color 😁 and the application process? Is it a DIY? And those wheels are rad man.Black rhino?
