Thinking about buying spacers to enable me to mount 21” MS Turbine wheels on Model Y, thoughts?

I bought my wife a ‘22 MY LR w/ 19” Gemini Wheels. I was hoping to find a deal on a used MYP but the ‘22 MY that I found was pretty good deal. It only had 168 miles, blue/white for $64.4k. I was also in a hurry to buy because my wife’s ‘08 MDX was dying.

Anyhoo, I have a spare set of staggered 21” Turbine Wheels from my MS that would like to mount on her MY. I am thinking about buying some 15-20mm wheel spacers to change the bolt pattern from 5x114.3 to 5x120. Custom spacers will cost around $200.

But what about the ride quality? I have a plan.

Her MY tires are currently inflated to 38psi. She has not complained about the ride quality. I guess coming from an MDX got her used to a less cushy ride. I plan to inflate the tires to the recommended 42-45 psi, so that she gets used to “ride”. And when I finally mount the 21’s, I plan to inflate them only to 40 psi. Also, when it’s time for new tires, I’d buy some tires with taller side walls: 255/40/21 & 275/40/21.

What do you guys/gals think? This way I get ”upgrade” my wife’s car using wheels that I already have for only $200.
