I'm thinking of replacing my tyres with brand new ones the ones i have on are terrible, but im not sure which brand is good or which ones you should stay way clear of?

I'm also planning to replace the rims at the same time when the new tryes are being done, Currently have chrome on it but i honestly cant stand chrome on wheels as mine is starting to peel off and they are awful to change when you have a flat tyre no joke though.

Any Advice or tips be helpful, Im in australia
My Car currently has 15inch on her, but i am unsure whether to upgrade up to 16 or 17 Honestly not sure

Hello !
I would go for the original rims I think they look great on Elantra but it may be hard to find one in good condition.
I can't stand chrome wheels too. I think they looks good only on Buick or any other old American cars.
Now if you ask me the ones on the most left side are great looking by far from the other you posted here.
Good luck and share us with what you choose .

I have an XD with 16" and an XD2 with 17" and neither have any problems.

In fact, the third rim from the left look like the same rims I have on my XD2.

Sorry to hear that. I hope you are doing better. You deserve better.

I LOVE those wheels. Normally, I don't like black on black, but that looks great. I would say that maybe you should paint the calipers something with a high contrast like the neon green I see on Subaru's or a bright yellow. Your car looks great though.

What's next?

Nice. I did the big brake upgrade on my XD2. I went with 2004 or 2005 XG350 calipers which are a direct bolt on and 12" rotors re-drilled. I love them. It was an easy upgrade. You do have to bleed the brake lines though after replacing the calipers but that was pretty easy. If you need any references, you can see my upgrade under my thread of MKJH's XD2 around page 17 or 18 I believe.

Any questions, just ask away. Many here have done these upgrades and can give some insight.
