    225/40/17 could be achieved with spacers + rolled & stretched fenders?

    quick question,


    i have a set of 90-93 Honda Accord EX rims with nearly brand new tires just sittin' around. i know that the bolt pattern for the Accord and my 01 XD GT are 4 X 114.3, my issue is if the hub sizes are the same. the reason i ask this is just in case i damage a rim or two late on a sunday afternoon can i just slap on the Accord rims until i get my hands on a good XD rim

    bumpity bump

    yes the hub size and off set are the other two things you need to know.

    It is the correct lug pattern, but the hub bore is too small. The Elantra has a 67.1 hub, and the Honda Accord wheels have a 64.1 bore.

    Hey guys, this might be a simple question, but I have a 2013 Elantra GLS w/ 205/55/r16 stock tires. I need to buy some winter tires and my parents have 205/60/r16 that they had on their Toyota Camry but can't use because they bought a new Santa Fe. I am assuming that that they won't be an problem but I just wanted to confirm.

    I have the same exact question. Have 2012 Hyundai Elantra GLS that came with option 205/55/16. Well, I need snow tires and that is a more expensive size than if I just went to 205/60/16.

    So far I don't think it makes a whole heck of a difference but I just want to get some feedback from the pro's.

    From what I have read so far, it is recommended not to exceed a diameter variance of 3% or they say that there can be brake failure. Switching to the 205/60/16 gives a diameter variance of 3.24%. Using this website:

    http://www.1010tires.com/Tools/Tire-...5R16/205-60R16

    I don't think .24% is anything to consider. Just looking for other opinions. Any information will be appreciated.
    Thanks.

    Hey guys, recently I purchased 17"/7" Lenso wheels and 215/45/17 tires for my 2006 Elantra, i was so pleased at first, but after the first fast rolling I've sensed drastic rubbing! I love my new wheels but i have to solve this problem with the minimum injury! ifI I'd be right, there is 3 solution here:
    1. changing camber, my question is that our car rear wheel's cambers are adjustable? and is there any harm maximizing them?
    2. rolling the fenders, my question: is it possible that I just roll the rim of the fenders up?
    3. reducing the size of tire, and is 205/45/17 proper for 7" wide? cause the rim of the wheels gonna be wider than the tire width

    warm regards

    Center bore must be 67.1mm or larger (if the bore of the wheel is larger than 67.1mm then use hubcentric rings for proper hubcentric fitment)

    rim width - closest possible offset to OEM's scrub radius

    6.0" (+27mm to +58mm offset, +46)
    15" wheels
    195/60-15

    So I'm hoping someone has already done what I want to do - I wanna replace the stock steel/plastic hubcap with a nice aftermarket 5, 6, or 7 spoke black wheel - but I don't really want to deviate much from the stock overall size. I understand the aftermarket wheels will be .5" wider, but that shouldn't be a problem.

    These are pretty much what I'm lookin for http://www.carid.com/focal-wheels/42...-11584816.html

    What I'm looking for is some pictures of different black spoke wheels on elantras... and suggestions are more than welcome!

    I've poked around and could only find people asking if larger wheel/tire combos will fit on the Elantra. Has anyone tried going smaller? I just want some cheap winter rubber, probably 185/70R14. I have a 2004 hatchback with disc brakes all around. If anyone has done 14" wheels I would love to have confirmation that they will fit over the brakes.

    I seem to remember someone on here doing that, specifically with 14" but I can't remember for sure. That's a rarity for someone to want to go smaller.
