      Wheel flange J vs. JJ

      Hi TCL!
      Hope y'all are doing good.
      Looking for some guidance. Is it ok to get wheels with a J flange instead of the manufacturer recommended JJ flange type?

      Im having a hard time finding steel wheels locally for my Acura RL(JJ flange). Where as the wheels available are for other Honda which have a J flange.

      Thanks in advance!

      What is the difference?

      I thought all passenger vehicles in the US had to have the same wheel-to-tire bead flange, if that's what you mean by flange.

      I don't see a huge difference.

      "JJ designation is most common on 4x4 and SUV vehicles"
