What's you guys? I drive a Acura RDX turbo. Great car but not many aftermarket parts for it but its fun and fast. I take good care of it and I just installed a cold air intake in it.
I have a question that i have gone around asking. Do you have to to rebalance your wheels if you take them off to clean them?

What's up man! I know you've been here for a while, but welcome to the first time post!

I do love the Acura RDXs, they definitely have a sex appeal for an SUV. And I bet they could be quick as hell to. Didn't check your garage, is it turbo?

As for the wheel question, as long as you didn't pull off the wheel weight you're good. Tires are mounted & balanced completely independent of what axle you put them on, and when they're mounted and balanced they're completely clean (should be!). Which means that it's a great idea to actually keep them clean as it prevents vibrations and such that can be caused by excessive dirt / grim build up. Think about it, have you ever gone driving during the winter and your car is vibrating like a son of a bitch? Most likely because you have ice stuck in y our wheels that needs to be freed.

Rocky is right and welcome bud! The only other thing I suggest is if your wheels take the sticky kind of wheel weight (like if your outer rim has no lip for a normal weight to clip on to) and it got bunched up with snow or mud or whatever, go get a balance check done. The sticky wheights like to fall off in adverse road conditions.
If you talk the talk, you better crankwalk the walk.

Hey man!! Good to see another Acura Fan join up! RSX is a Fantastic car. If it's done right, it can be one hell of a ride! 

In terms of your tire question, there isn't much more i can really add. Other than that i can totally agree with their points. Looks like the guys pretty much summed it up.
