Your lug "patter" is correct, however there are many other factors that go into determining whether they will fit, and how well. Diameter, width, offset, tire size, etc etc etc.

Well, according to some research, the Acura TL Type S rims are as follows:

Bolt Pattern: 5x114.3
Size: 17x6.5
Offset: +55
Hub Bore: 64.1mm

If you get the hub bored out (our cars take 67.1), they'll work just fine... provided the stats I found are correct.
