IMHO the factory wheels are nice but rather boring. Is there a dedicated wheel picture thread somewhere here? Would be nice to see various options mounted on the Gen2. I will have my Black Widows installed next Wednesday and post pictures.

I've not seen such a thread yet.

I know there are at least two members in here running Black Rhino Wheels on their gen 2 Ridgelines but have yet to see any good pictures installed.

I've been shopping for wheels for this thing for a month now and it's hard to find a wheel that is more Trucky then car like. Lets face it, the Gen 2 Ridgeline is running a car sized wheel and with that comes car like styling to the majority of the offerings which I don't really care for myself.

Looking forward to seeing what you are installing.

What I mean is that you don't normally find 5 on 120mm lug pattern 18x8 inch wheels with 35-55mm offsets made in truck styling. That particular sizing is apparently found more so on cars and SUVs

That's just my opinion of course when it comes down to styling.

I personally don't really care for all these after market wheels that are manufactured today, their looks just don't do too much for me, I guess I'm just an old Crager chrome wheel lover, LOL. One wheel combination that I really like it the Pilot Touring and Elite wheels, 20", from the 2016 models. I have considered buying a takeoff set, having the wheels powder coated to match the Modern Gray of my new RL, and a new set of tires 20" for these wheels. I have seen this setup on a G1 and the wheels not powder coated and they look really good in their 20" wheel look.

Hi,
New member here, cut me some slack if I'm in the wrong spot.
Just bought my BE and I want to immediately add tires/wheels and the Bartman lowering springs. I've seen many I like, but I want to run 22" Ruff Racing R1 wheels. What size tires should I go with? Thanks for any advice.

Welcome to the ROC! You're not alone in wanting to change out your tires/wheels on your RL. I haven't seen any 22's done, yet, but I have seen a lot of 20's done on here. Check out the following threads for more info...

I hope your local roads are in good condition if you go the rubber band tire route like you are proposing. Those tires / rims wouldn't last 1000 miles in the pot hole ridden area where I live.

Well, I'll submit pictures soon, I ordered my tires and wheels today.
No pot holes here, it's 80-100 mph everywhere you go. Not kidding.
