see thats what happens when you don't do your homework......
That screw is what limits the types of rims us hyundai owners can buy. I too own an accent and when it came time to buy rims i had to be careful. That bolt in the back will prevent you from buying just any rims and slapping it on. You will need to do a little modification..... Get a wheel shop to bore out the spaces between your lugnuts if you wanna keep your rims or just purchase the ones that are "Hyundai Safe" Call any rim shop if you tell them its for a hyundai they'll tell you what you wanna know<img src=/images/forums/snitz/thumbup.gif width=25 height=18 border=0>

A few other people have had that problem here, not me personally, but all they did was a few ground the head of the screw down, and a couple just took it out all together <img src=/images/forums/snitz/thumbup.gif width=25 height=18 border=0>

If you are talking about the 4 bolts that are on the rotors then DO NOT REMOVE them. These are captive rotors and you need to leave them on. When buying rims you need to let the wheel shop know that you have captive rotors. <img src=/images/forums/snitz/thumbup.gif width=25 height=18 border=0>
or like someone else said talk to the shop or company and make sure they fit your car before you buy them. i know some shops just want your money that's why you gotta do some stuff on your own. but yes your car has captive rotors, and no do not take those bolts off, and no do not machine your wheels. your best bet would be to sell those wheels or take them back and get a set that has the slits precut into the wheel.

There are only two screws on the LC Accent per rotor. Now, the ones in the front were the only ones I had problems with. The rear had flat heads (Drums), so you could put the rims on there. My front ones had bulging round heads. You could either replace those screws with some flat head ones, or take them out all together. I've had my rims for months, and no prob. It would be best to get rims for captive rotors if you would like to be extra cautious.
