i have 17 inch enkei shoguns on my 2000 elantra and they seemed to fit fine but every dealer i talk to (i am try to replace 2 of them) says they wont fit because of the captive rotors. i have had problems with them rubbing the suspension if i hit a bump and i was wondering if that is because of improper fitment , does anyone know if i could get spacers to fix that problem because i have 205 40 17's which should be the same size as stock.

the correct size will be 205/35-17 . you may or may not have captive rotors ( I'm betting not since most 99's didn't have them ) and you should be fine rim wise.

The book I have says the '00 Elantra came with 195/60-15's. The diameter is 615mm. The correct plus 2 size would be 205/45R-17. The diameter is 616.3mm. The difference in circumference is only 4.08mm or 0.21%. See here to do your own comparisons: http://pw1.netcom.com/~sgalaba/tiresize.htm#ustirecompare
