      Means more weight from the wheels. Most 45 are 8.5" so more metal.

      As far as handling goes... Get used to following the ruts left by trucks. Makes your ride feel almost wobbly sometimes.

      Last year would have been a 'no contest' for me... But the new RDX is pretty nice... I'd test drive them both and if the Acura feels quality... Think of the reliability difference.:laugh:
